Summary

Are we born evil, or do we have evil thrust upon us? This is the eternal question of nature vs nurture at the centre of Killer by Nature, a brand-new psychological thriller from Audible Originals.
Dr. Diane Buckley, a talented freelance forensic psychologist, is drafted in to examine a grisly murder - a body found in a children's playground. The murder carries all the hallmarks of one of her most famous incarcerated clients, 'The Playground Killer' (aka Alfred Dinklage). In a series of intimate 1:1 sessions, Buckley has to race against time to unpick the facts and delve into Dinklage's often manipulative, complicated mind to understand his past whilst striving to prevent further murders...as someone out there will stop at nothing to complete Dinklage's work.
Fully dramatized, with an immersive SFX soundscape, Killer by Nature features an all-star cast, including Katherine Kelly (Mr Selfridge), Rob-James Collier (Downton Abbey), Thomas Turgoose (This is England), Angela Griffin (Cutting It) and Will Mellor (No Offence).

A good solid psychological thriller

Kept my attention all the way through - the performance of the cast, pace of story and the overall production are excellent. Though there were a few parts I was a bit unsure of; more ‘would that really happen’, than being confused by it.

Overall ‘Killer by Nature’ is a good - but not spectacular - solid psychological thriller. [Split into 10 episodes, each ranging between 24-32 minutes in length.]


I’m glad Audible appear to be increasingly devoting more and more time + energy producing their own audio-dramas, such as this release, and hope they continue to do so. For me this makes it easier to justify being a member.

Excellent listen

Really enjoyed this and didn’t want it to finish. Well acted and clearly spoken. Good plot with lots of twists and turns. Well worth a listen. Will now look to see if there’s a follow on story

Wow! Loved it!

I listen to a lot of dramatizations on Audible and this is one of the best. It's an emotional roller coaster....it made me laugh, cry and everything in between. It kept me engaged the entire time with twists and turns in the plot.
I do feel a narrator would have kept it clearer when switching between scenes and characters but being so engaged you can figure it out.
This is a definite listen for anyone who likes suspense and drama.

Really really good

Where does Killer by Nature rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 2.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think I liked the main character because she has a lot of secrets.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the beginning when she was talking to the killer in jail.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no I did not but I did enjoy it a lot.

Any additional comments?

The cliff hanger at the end really bothered me, because I want a follow up.
