Publisher's Summary

Available for the first time in audiobook, and featuring exclusive extracts of murderers talking from death row, Christopher Berry-Dee's study of the world's worst serial killers is a chilling true crime experience.

Christopher Berry-Dee is the man who talks to serial killers. A world-renowned investigative criminologist, he has gained the trust of murderers across the world, entered their high security prisons and discussed in detail their shocking crimes. 

The killers' pursuit of horror and violence is described through the unique audiotape and videotape interviews which Berry-Dee conducted, deep inside the bowels of some of the world's toughest prisons. 

Christopher Berry-Dee has collated these interviews into this astounding, disturbing book, which, since its first publication, has gone on to become a true crime classic. Not only does he describe his meetings with some of the world's most evil men and women, he also reproduces, verbatim, their very words as they describe their crimes, allowing the listener a glimpse into the inner workings of the people who have committed the worst crime possible - to mercilessly take the life of another human being.

Disturbing, to the point and informative

After listening to multiple of the authors work, its safe to say that if you want to get into the minds of killers and have it explained in a down to earth, no rubbish and intriguing fashion and fantastic VO of Colin Mace, then look no further.

Sickening tales of serial killers

Author Christopher Berry-Dee has made a career from writing about serial killers following his extensive research, correspondence, discussions with law enforcement officers, family members and survivors and meetings in prison with the killers. He is the editor of the New Criminologist Magazine and director of the Criminology Research Centre. There is probably no one else in the world who has had access to so many serial killers over such a long time scale. Ultimately, many of the cases he reviews, including all but one in this book, are focused on events in the US where crime rates, and appetite for this type of literature, is the highest.

This book promises "talking with serial killers" and it does, indeed, provide short snippets of Berry-Dee's conversations with many of the death row inhabitants that he has met over the years, however these are very short, in some cases merely a few seconds. The rest of the transcripts of the actual meetings are mimicked by narrator Colin Mace who does a reasonable job of voicing the various accents, both male and female but this stops well short of playing back the whole of the interviews. Perhaps Berry-Dee is saving these for another day.
