Summary

These hardened killers opened up to her in a way that they would never do to psychiatrists, prosecutors and other authority figures...revealing terrifying chapters of their lives that might otherwise have stayed hidden forever.
In this chilling audiobook, you will meet Wayne Adam Ford, who walked into a California police station in 1998 with a severed woman's breast in his pocket; Bobby Joe Long, who assaulted and murdered at least ten women; Gary Ray Bowles, killer of six; truck driver Keith Hunter Jespersen, who travelled from state leaving a trail of bodies in his wake; and Robin Gecht, one of the members of the terrifying Ripper Crew.
Redstall has spoken about her experiences on programmes like The Montel Williams Show, in documentaries and in the national press. In this, her first audiobook, she shares every detail and insight, bringing the listener up close and very personal with some of the most dangerous and disturbed serial killers that the world has ever seen.

Terrible

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.

Interesting but spoiled by narration

The narrator ruined this for me. Mispronounced words and pauses in very weird parts of a sentence.
The author should be very disappointed.

Don't waste your credit

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.

Too much about author

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.
