As a recount of this woman’s experiences interviewing a handful of American serial killers this book should’ve been written in an impartial manner. Unfortunately it wasn’t.
Throughout the book she insulted various people on their looks to which she referred although having never met them; ridiculed some of the killers she interviewed because of their idiosyncracies; narrated various events, such as some of her prison visits, where it became apparent it was all about her rather than the prisoners she was meant to be interviewing and finally tried to instruct a judge in his court that he was being ridiculous when running through judicial procedures. All of this spoiled for me what could have been a great subject. I guess it says more about the author than the prisoners as well as her amateurish writing skills. Not a nice person in fact, undoubtedly shallow and self-absorbed.
Would you try another book from Victoria Redstall and/or Drew Campbell?
This book is boring. I actually stopped listening when it got to the trial. I will. Finish but only when I have nothing to listen to. The book drags on, it sets scenery more than anything in my opinion. Maybe the last half will be better.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I think I will purchase Gacy, the last victim was a good book to.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
no redeeming qualities I can think of, I tried liking the book but the more I listened the more I knew this book was not holding my interest.

The author bring too much of her own story and self-centeredness for my taste. The narrator mispronounces so many words it is distracting. The topic is great but I could barely finish it.
