Publisher's Summary

A dramatic and compelling true-crime psychological thriller 

This incredible story shows how John Douglas tracked and participated in the hunt for one of the most notorious serial killers in US history. For 31 years a man who called himself BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) terrorized the city of Wichita, Kansas, sexually assaulting and strangling a series of women, taunting the police with frequent communications, and bragging about his crimes to local newspapers and TV stations. After disappearing for nine years, he suddenly reappeared, complaining that no one was paying enough attention to him and claiming that he had committed other crimes for which he had not been given credit. When he was ultimately captured, BTK was shockingly revealed to be Dennis Rader, a 61-year-old married man with two children.

Horrible Narration

The content is great. I have it in paperback...should have just read it myself again. The man that narrates this box can't pronounce words correctly. Very irritating.

WORST NARRATION EVER!

As usual the content and story of a John Douglas book is without compare when it comes to the true crime genre, but the narrating of this book is like having a kindergartener do it. Constant mispronounced words etc. Who narrates a book from a former FBI agent and can't pronounce Quantico? or Et cetera? Are you serious? those are just two of the many examples of the constant errors in the narrating. Not to mention it sounds like he narrated in in his bathroom. I recommend reading this book, but def not listening to it.

Have re-read by Jonathan Groff

I was really interested to hear this and thought the story would surpass the narration. But I couldn’t finish it. This narrator can’t pronounce basic words.

Such a disappointment as an audio book

This book is not as good as the mark Olshaker co-authored books, but it is a solid three star book. Some interesting stories and tidbits of information. But they obviously rushed to get it on audiobook. The narrator is terrible. I probably counted 20 obvious mispronunciations of words that are important to the story (Kwanteeco?????(aka Quantico).

I want my credit back.

John Douglas doesn’t deserve this. This was the worst narration I’ve ever heard. I actually think Jason Klav recorded this himself in a basement somewhere without proper equipment. I’m looking into getting my credit back.

Just started and my teeth ache already

Why would Audible use a narrator what has difficulty with ‘introduction’ (the narrator pronounced it ‘interducshun’) Quantico (kwan-TEE-koh instead of KWAN-ti-co) etc? I will update the review if I finish this to reflect my opinion of the story: this is my fourth John Douglas book this month so I’m on a roll.

Terrible Narration

Narrator ruins this presentation. How can someone reading a book about the FBI not be able to pronounce Quantico?
