Well-researched and compelling

This is perhaps the best of all the Ted Bundy books. It contains original research and interviews, and provides a thorough overview of Bundy's life and crimes, without undue sensationalism and gore. The narration is perfect—perfectly clear, but not overly dramatic, and the narrator has a pleasant baritone. Even if you've read other Bundy books, this one is worth your time, in my opinion.

Some annoying narration issues, but fantastic book

OK; So if you are familiar with this story, you will appreciate the insight and first hand information that Hugh and Stephen have on Ted, which gives them an incredibly unique perspective on him, and the murders. I also purchased Conversations with a Killer, and the audiobook of the same name; both of which are based on the Bundy interview tapes that Hugh and Stephen collected through hundreds of hours of interviews with Bundy while he was on Death Row in Florida. (Also made into a fantastic Netflix documentary). Most of that is in this book, as well as a very comprehensive history of Ted, and his life and crimes, interspersed with some of the information from Ted and the Death Row interviews- extremely fascinating, and compelling. Very well written, and I would highly recommend. BUT..... I am a full time working Artist, so I listen to audiobooks constantly while I work, and some things can start to grate after awhile. Narration can make or break an audiobook experience. For the most part the narrator is very competent, but there are a few things that I really had to will myself to overcome. First, as a native Oregonian born and raised, anybody from the Northwest will tell you that it is absolutely maddening when people can't pronounce the state name. Throughout the whole book the narrator refers to Oregon as OR-EE-GONE. It might seem like nitpicking, but it should be pretty common knowledge at this point- if it's your job to narrate for a living, getting basic pronunciations of major state names correct seems like not a lot to ask. And since a lot of this centers around Oregon and the NW, it comes up a lot. And he always gets it wrong. He also gets a number of the victims names wrong. Denise Naslund (one of Ted's victims) he pronounces as Denise NASH-LUND. Again, it's a basic pronunciation, and it seems kind of disrespectful that he can't get her name right. He also mispronounces Lisa Levy's name throughout the whole book. Some basic research, or a cursory listen from an editor and these things would be very easily fixed. It's obnoxious. There are a couple other things, but I'll leave well enough alone. FANTASTIC book, definitely worth a buy. Just prepared to be extremely annoyed if you're from Oregon.

Good overall

Definitely a good book. Had information that I hadn't heard all in one place before, so that was nice. The narrator was ok, someone's it drives me crazy when the narrator tries to mimic the accent of the characters in the book.

Excellent, but A LOT OF bad language.

This is a very good book on Bundy! Heard things from the book I hadn’t heard in other books I’ve read on Ted Bundy. The only issue I have is there a a LOT of foul language. I know they are just repeating what he said but wish they could have left all the F bombs out. So if your like me and very bothered by a sailor mouth, just be aware.

By far the best Ted Bundy book out there!!

This book is not for the faint of heart. It doesn't pull any punches. It's direct and to the point. It's shows Bundy for the monster that he was, sometimes going into graphic details of the injuries he inflicted on his poor victims. Brilliant written and superbly read.
