As far as Serial Killers go, this guy flew under the radar. This is a fascinatingly well researched book with a great deal of detail. The narration becomes very irritating when Amy Landon try's unsuccessfully to portray male characters voices. Overall though it was an interesting book.

These three guys are amazing. Karl Pilkington is a genius. How I could laugh so much at three guys talking about rubbish is beyond me. I listened to this Podcast series 3 times in a row. So Funny.......

Barely Interesting !!!

On the surface this looked interesting. In reality, not so. I got through it but I struggled throughout.

Twisting and Turning. What a Fantastic Story !!

I absolutely loved this to bits. What a story! I loved the twists and was totally thrown by the final 30 minutes. Very clever writing and exceptional Narration. One important point to note, it helps to know Cricket. It can get a little detailed in that regard. For me, 5 Stars all around. Loved it !!!

Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant !!

I've never had such a blast listening to anything like I had listening to this. Unbelievably funny, profound, deep, wise, interesting in fact everything anyone would want out of an Audiobook. Brilliant!

The best researched book of its type

Amazing access to the minds and personas of these disturbed people. No holding back on anything here.
Whilst the American accents were a bit dodgy, overall the narrator did a good job.
If you like this type of subject matter then this is worth the time spent listening..

I'm a big fan of the Peter Fitzsimons and Robert Meldrum team but this book failed to capture my imagination and interest. This was a pitty because this story is such an important one to be told over and over again. I have found other formats around the legend of Gallipoli more engaging and interesting.

Something wasn't right for me. This story relied heavily on the main Transgender Plot which is 100% fine however, it's difficult to ascertain whether this was the intention of the book or not. The story skipped back and forth constantly from Sandra's life to her profession to her life again. It was difficult to stay in a groove. I love the use of similes in literature but I think they were overused in this book.

Shocking !!!!!

No idea how this story can be remotely true. Such descriptive detail makes the listener shudder in disgust but one is compelled to listen on. Howard Sounes has done a remarkable research job which must have been difficult in itself. Jonathan Oliver brings craft to the narration. Well done. A good book.

A good Concept. Almost Podcast like.

You have to be aware, Mel Robbins can be grinding. There's a small amount of her being too smart for her own good at times but this was mostly interesting.
