Fear not my fellow crime buffs, chapter 9 will go up this weekend!
In the meantime, I was replying to a comment and had a great idea for a discussion topic. Of all the police interviews, at the beginning and especially towards the end when he was close to execution, I don’t think anyone asked him about his years with Liz. We’ve heard him talk about murders, porn, being a serial killer. But what I wish we had were his deep dark thoughts on Liz. What was it about her that made him keep her around? What value did she bring to his life? In the book, Liz talks about how he had urges to kill her and Tina, even foiling his own attempt once.
I know a lot of people say she reminded him of Stephanie. But he relied on Liz for a lot. He willingly took her on trips, he spent time with Tina. And he trusted her enough to open up about his morbid sexual fantasies as well.
Wouldn’t you love to hear him talk for an hour on their relationship? From what you’ve read so far, what do you think he would say about her?
