Front cover of the book

Q9 Consulting, Inc announces a new book, The End of the Zodiac Mystery, How Forensic Science Helped Solve One of the Most the Most Infamous Serial Killer Cases of the Century by Michael Wakshull. The book details the forensic handwriting examination that delivered the final evidence to authors Gary L. Stewart and Susan Mustafa for their New York Times best selling book, The Most Dangerous Animal of All.

Wakshull, a practicing court qualified forensic document examiner, takes readers through the unique methodology he used to examine and compare the writing in the letters sent by the Zodiac killer to news media with handwriting of Earl Van Best Jr., the suspected Zodiac killer.

As the evidence unfolds, readers experience the chills realized by the near perfect matches of the letters and words displayed in the full color forensic images. The appendix is the report Wakshull delivered to Stewart and Mustafa.

According to Mustafa, "Michael Wakshull was the perfect choice to analyze the Zodiac's handwriting and compare it to the writing of Earl Van Best, Jr. His thoroughness, innovative approach, and the comprehensive report he generated were impressive. As you will discover in The End of the Zodiac Mystery, Wakshull left no stone unturned as he forensically examined the handwriting and helped Gary L. Stewart and me prove the identity of this killer who had remained unnamed for more than four decades.—Susan Mustafa, co-author, The Most Dangerous Animal of All: Searching for My Father and Finding the Zodiac Killer."

The book is available at both www.zodiacsolved.com  and on www.amazon.com.
