I kind of kept getting irked by the author's attempts to cover for what were patently mistakes by law enforcement. The author leaves the reader with what I consider a complete failure to admit simply just how well prepared the perpetrator was. While he concedes some errors were made, a lot of the book is posturing about what outstanding tactics the FBI was using in spite of such a difficult mission. After Eric's capture (which was effectively a fluke by a rookie cop), the author wastes pages upon pages detailing how Eric must have had some kind of help. The author assumes his conclusion that Eric couldn't have possessed the survivalist skills to evade the FBI for so long as justification. Even though Eric had spent his whole life studying survivalist skills and prepping literally for nuclear holocaust at the very location they were seeking him in, the author insists he couldn't have evaded capture for that long without help. Eric's US Army infantry and SERE training? No match for FBI agents walking around blindly the woods. The author appeals to how well fed and healthy Eric looks in light of hiding for so long as evidence that he had some kind of assistance. However, when they eventually find his campsite (which wasn't in some deep underground cave, but simply sitting on a hillside), they detail how it is fully stocked with food, a rifle, ammunition, toiletries, and even a huge bag of marijuana.
Forensic psychologists from the FBI Behavioral Science unit criticize the composite sketch (which looks like what many North Americans would depict as Jesus), and the author completely disregards the suggestion and spends a paragraph talking about how foolish it would be to make that comparison. Look at the sketch and decide for yourself, but many happen to think a very good idea was ignored by the author in favor of demonstrably bad tactics.
The author's scholarship seems pretty accurate, and the book does an outstanding job detailing the police's attempt to catch Eric Rudolph. So if you're looking for kind of a docu-drama book that details how the police tried to catch this guy, this is your book.
