Reynolds's personal involvement with the victims, investigators, and proximity to the crimes offers a deeper level of authenticity and depth to the narrative. Speaking to his motivation behind writing the book, Reynolds notes, "I was involved tangentially in the events that unfolded. I lived near the crime scenes, knew some of the victims, and had personal relationships with the investigators working on the cases. This story touches on critical issues in our society, including police work, homelessness, cultural divisions, foster care, and the pervasive violence plaguing our communities. I felt compelled to shed light on these matters and show the underlying goodness and the desire for justice that exists in most of us."
Early reviews show "Saint Bloodbath" has made a significant impression on readers:
"Saint Bloodbath is a modern true crime tour-de-force."
"Reynolds has seamlessly meshed the melting pot that is LA County into a brilliant piece of storytelling."
"The best true crime novel since Joseph Wambaugh's The Onion Field." —Henry Johnson, Redondo Beach Police Officer (Retired)
