Review of Last Call: A True Story of Love, Lust, and Murder in Queer New York by Elon Green, read by David Pittu

The Last Call Killer preyed upon gay men in New York in the ‘80s and ‘90s and had all the hallmarks of the most notorious serial killers. Yet because of the sexuality of his victims, New York City’s high murder rates, and the AIDS epidemic, his murders have been almost entirely forgotten. This is journalist Elon Green’s first book, and unlike some True Crime authors, Green doesn’t focus on salacious sensationalism and the killer’s notoriety. Instead, he focuses much more on the victims of crime, especially their personalities and lives. I’ve done the same in my review and left out the name of the killer, which is easily found on Google. While some people might find that annoying, I found it makes Green’s audiobook a more interesting, memorable listen and importantly, it puts the focus back on the victims instead of lending notoriety to a killer.
