I'm currently listening to this book after months trying to find it and it absolutely stunned me from start to finish. I'm an independent journalist who has been researching every single aspect of this horrific attack since right after it happened and this is the closest I have ever gotten to discovering why he did it though some of the book was obviously fictionalized (descendants of Mr. Paddock, the hookers, the partner of Ben Paddock his father and a woman who was a fictional victim of the massacre), some of it was real (the security guard who was called by Paddock's demon in the book and was supposedly wounded in the actual attack) and other parts of it (such as Stephen suffering from nightmares which was reported by his partner but not officially confirmed by authorities or media) I think did occur while he was preparing to carry out his act of violence. I absolutely do not condone his actions in any way but I felt very emotional for Stephen Paddock when I first started studying him nearly 3 years ago and now after reading this I feel empathetic especially when he finds out he has pancreatic cancer (he did not have any type of cancer in real life) and he was physically suffering from the pain. Most of the chapters leading up to attack preparations, what his life was like and the actual massacre are about his father (who was a known criminal in the 60's) and a woman who was Ben's fictional partner (Stephen ends up killing the woman and holding her hostage in reference to a false report which claimed that he was sleeping with hookers prior to the massacre for apparently traumatizing him when he was a little boy) but there are zero references to the woman who lived with him (who was sent back to her native country during the event and was later a person of interest in the investigation) or surviving family members. The chapters when he eventually launches his attack (which claimed the lives of 60 innocent people and wounded over 700 others) are haunting especially when the evil demon tells him to take his own life instead of being captured alive. Everything about this book is powerful and disturbing (the guy who narrates it did a fantastic job especially capturing the mind of a mad man) and I recommend it to those who have an "interest" in the attack and true crime fans. I have never read anything like this before.
"Conway aptly blends real-life elements with fictional characters and situations. An engrossing, dramatized consideration of a real-life tragedy... Recommended."
3 of 4 stars - Kirkus Reviews Sept 2018
"An immensely powerful book.... The blending of fact and fiction is seamless... a compulsive read... The background on Stephen's life - including fictional extrapolations on his motives for the massacre - is also fascinating... A powerful and compelling read from start to finish..."

"A unique work of genre-bending fiction..." 5 of 10 stars - Book Life Oct 2018
Conway masterfully details all the things that Stephen went through that pushed him to the point of committing such a heinous act. Even though this version of Stephen Paddock is fictional, he is still written realistically. His father is also a well-developed character in the story. Conway manages to make the reader feel for these characters.

I do believe that just as there are Angel's living among us, so are there demons. Both come in many forms and shapes. I don't agree with the author on all that was presented in this book but then again this is a book of fiction and entertainment first and foremost.
It definitely was an interesg read and I wasn't bored with the storyline, finishing the book in less than 48 hours. If I hadn't had to work, I would have read through it all once I turned the first page.
As did the world, I grieved over the ones who lost their lives on that day. I grieved for the survivors and their families as well. I also wondered how one person could get so much destruction in a hotel room unnoticed.
I don't know this author and this is the first book I've read by him. I'd recommend this book but only to a certain type of my friends as terrorism, based on true events, is a hard subject to read.
D.P. Conway did a great job at making the characters seem real. I could actually visualize and feel the pain and hurt they felt.
It is a must read! Caution: you will have a hard time putting this book down.
