“Only those who have met evil up close and in person can understand how seemingly normal, successful people can sink to shocking levels of depravity. Diamond, in his decades of work as a journalist, has looked into evil's eyes in the real world, and used those memories to create one of the most terrifying killers in fiction.”

Live to the Network is one of the most tautly written, deeply suspenseful and heart- wrenching books I have read in many years... Diamond's years as a brilliant investigative reporter serve him well here, as this book is achingly detailed, portraying all sides with unstinting accuracy, and his own deep empathy. This is the best and worst of humanity laid out so strongly, it is truly unforgettable.”
