Orth has the difficult task of hanging her book on the back of a phantom . Instead, she relies on exhaustive, if exhausting, reportage in the interest of turning Cunanan into a sort of psychopathic Gatsby, an American Everyman driven to kill by a homicidal lust for fame. So who was Andrew Cunanan? We do know he grew up in a Catholic household in San Diego, the child of a possessive Italian mother and a social-climbing Filipino father. I am a fanatical reader, he wrote in a student questionnaire.

Read the true story of the manhunt that inspired The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, the latest chapter of the acclaimed FX series.   On July 15, 1997, Gianni Versace was shot and killed on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. But months before Versace’s murder, award-winning journalist Maureen Orth was already investigating a major story on Cunanan for Vanity Fair.

Orth reveals how Cunanan met Versace, and why police and the FBI repeatedly failed to catch him. Here is a gripping odyssey that races across America—from California’s wealthy gay underworld to modest Midwestern homes of families mourning the loss of their sons to South Beach and its unapologetic decadence. Vulgar Favors is at once a masterwork of investigative journalism and a riveting account of a sociopath, his crimes, and the mysteries he left along the way.   “The breadth and thoroughness of [Maureen] Orth’s research are often staggering.”—The New York Times   “Fascinating . . . ripe with chilling detail.”—Entertainment Weekly

From the title of this book, one might expect it to be mostly about the famous fashion designer, Gianni Versace. Think again. This book delves into the life (and eventual death) of the man who shot Versace in cold blood. It takes the reader from Andrew's early days growing up in a subsection of California, attending the prominent private Episcopal school, Bishops School, in exclusive La Jolla, and moving on to trying to live the fabulous gay life he believed he deserved. Andrew learned early on how to be cared for by rich gay older men, and he relished that life. Eventually what he had wasn't enough ..... Nothing was enough. He fell into the life of S and M sex, overabundance of drugs, and still wanting more. When he felt those closest to him (in his mind) were deserting him, he decided that needed to change. This began the start of the downhill road that killed two friends, a millionaire, an innocent life in an historic cemetery, and then his final "masterpiece" . Shooting Gianni Versace outside his own home in South Beach, FL.
Having been raised in San Diego, I know many of the areas Andrew hung out at. So picturing him there was fairly easy. I found this book interesting as it gave me more of an insight into who Andrew was and why he did what he did. I am anxiously awaiting the FX series that will be out soon.

I read a ton of true crime. Most of it is poorly written. “Vulgar Favors” is an exception, and boy is it fantastic. Maureen Orth’s reporting skills are unassailable; you get the feeling she interviewed every family member, friend, acquaintance, bar back, cashier, and bathroom attendant that ever crossed paths with Andrew Cunanan and his victims. Compellingly structured and executed, the author loads you up with Cunanan’s psychic turmoil and troubled, unsustainable lifestyle, and when the killings start you feel like you’ve been pushed of a cliff. Highly, highly recommended.

A lot of research went into this book by the author. She really gets into how Andrew Cunanan evolved into a serial killer. The book is really about him and not about Versace. The book is rather long, but never boring.

This book is very good, extremely detailed, and when the murders start, really gripping. It is often unsparing in describing the victims' bodies, the wounds, and the actual commission of the murders themselves.

The author obviously did much personal investigation of the scenes, the cities, the nightlife, and the sexual mores of California's gay communities. But eventually, after a hundred pages detailing Cunanan's sordid career, the story becomes repetitive. If it keeps its shock value for some readers, they will be encouraged to read on, but I decided to skip ahead to the terrible murders with which Cunanan's name will always be identified.

At one point, his path crossed that of Gianni Versace, casually and briefly, long before their fatal encounter on the steps of the mansion in Miami Beach. Later, during Cunanan's futile years of waiting for the right man, he developed a venomous jealousy of Versace, so talented, wealthy, and famous.

When everything in his life was unraveling, when he had lost the lover he really cared about, when perhaps the effects of his drug use had reached murderous levels, he plotted to destroy the two young men who had abandoned him.

The terrible crimes are described in detail, as much as can be deduced when the five victims were all dead -- and in the end there really were five, one of them Lee Miglin, an elderly millionaire murdered with incredible savagery.

This is certainly the best true crime book I have read in years. The author begins by painting in strong colors the strange netherworld of California's homosexual population and ends with an introduction into the frenetic lifestyle of gay males living with the fear of AIDS but partying with abandon in the sunny paradise of a Florida beach community.

Many readers will be surprised by this author's description of Gianni Versace as leader of an enclave where self-indulgence was not only the norm but the expected. His own last years, however, were anything but untroubled.

Finally, I will note that this book is a severe indictment of the police work involved, including that of the FBI. But here, too, the reader will prefer to do much skipping.

I saw the TV serial movie "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" and this book is what the movie is based upon. I wanted to see all the information this author had gathered through interviews and research to see what was missed in the movie. I also read that the book actually differs somewhat from the movie, as the movie was tweaked to add excitement and spice. So far the book is good, and I know it will be a good read.

Extremely detailed and thoroughly researched account of Andrew Cunanan's tumultuous life leading up to his cross country killing spree which culminated in the murder of Gianni Versace...and ultimately; his own suicide. Not for the faint of heart; but for those interested in true crime stories, this is a fascinating account. This is the book that the upcoming "American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace" is based on.

I guess I have lived in a very sheltered world even though I was in law enforcement for 29 years. This book is fascinating on so many levels. You don't know who or what you are living next door or what crazy sick demented nasty people that you look at every day and think they are normal. The book is a page turner. We have been watching the mini series based on the book and it is true to form so far. Without going into detail it's a good read about a very sick man.
Excellent book! Literally could not put it down. Typos and grammatical errors were everywhere, but if you can ignore those you'll enjoy the in depth information.
