Jim Huddle is a proud father of two daughters and six grandchildren. He is a California native who now lives in Nevada. As a photographer, he travels the western states following the warm weather and seeking his next best photograph. In the 70s, Jim served as a reservist in the Naval Air reserves. He travels throughout the year and enjoys boating, flying general aviation aircraft, and poker. With the revelation of the Golden State Killer's identity, Jim felt the story of his relationship with Joseph James DeAngelo could help others spot behavioral warning signs of potential serial criminals. He looks forward to continuing his travels.
This will give you valuable insight about how the killer hid in
plain sight for years and how the family dealt with the ensuing
aftermath. The author is likable and I enjoyed this book. It's a
perfect book for someone to wants to learn more about the killer
they've seen all over the news, but perhaps doesn't have the
stomach to do a case-by-case deep dive. It's a quick, easy read
that anybody interested in the case would enjoy. - Mercedes M.

"Initially the title grabbed my attention and to find it was true crime, I couldn't wait to read it. I am by no means a fast reader, but to read a book in little over a day as I did with Killers Keep Secrets is saying something."-NetGalley Review
"Another book about the Golden State Killer, which meant that the only way to impress me would be to learn some things I didn't already know. And let me tell you, this book did just this. It was so interesting to see what he was doing with his time after the murders stopped and also a very personal account of someone who knew him probably the best (besides his wife). I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about Golden State Killer/East Area Rapist."- NetGalley Review
"...gives insight to the popular notion that madmen can live among us."- NetGalley Review
"The quest to try to understand what makes a serial killer and how they hide in plain sight is one of the most intriguing mysteries. This book was a big surprise to me...[it] shows how deceptive the perception we have of a killer may be."- NetGalley Review
"Killers Keep Secrets: The Golden State Killer's Other Life, is absolutely gripping while being horrific and terrifying because of the crimes committed. It makes you question just how well do you really know the people you are close to and let into your life?" - NetGalley Review
"Quite interesting... overall a great read."- NetGalley Review
"Astonishing account of decades of life lived right next to Joseph DeAngelo, the Golden State Killer. The fact that the author is one of the few who had a ringside seat, makes this read fascinating." -NetGalley Review
