Colombian Killers explores the stories of three men who have forever tainted the lush fields of Latin America. This book narrates the sadistic acts of serial killers Luis Alfredo Garavito, Pedro Alonzo Lopez, and Daniel Camargo Barbosa.
For these men, rape and murder were but the beginning of the horrors they inflicted upon the world. The fear their crimes inspire is not about their nature, the methodology, or even the victims. It is about who the killers themselves are.
These men were motivated by perhaps the most chilling trifecta - sex, power and revenge.
This book begins with three parts, each dedicated to one of these three monsters of modern-day Colombia. Once you've been edified with the general knowledge of the atrocities, we will delve further into the tiny details, the forgotten horrors, the thousands of ways that we as a society failed these men and, in so doing, shaped them into be the monsters they are known as today.
Luis Alfredo Garavito, Pedro Alonzo Lopez, and Daniel Camargo Barbosa are among the most prolific serial killers in the world. Between them, they were convicted of 329 murders, but it's believed that the number they committed is over 750.
Colombian Killers is not for the faint of heart, nor for the feeble of spirit. Be very sure you want to know what you are about to hear, because if you can be sure of nothing else, be sure of this: You will never forget what you are about to hear.

Audible addict. Love picking up a new read.......review everything I've listened to on audible.
Yes I will do, it's an easily digestible factual account about three prolific serial killers that operated in Latin America ( one may still be operating.......) Wonderfully narrated and fascinating to listen to. Made a pleasant change to watching a movie to take the time to sit and listen in one session. Highly recommended.

I have never heard of theese men.. increasingly suspenseful and dramatic detail of real crime.. Ryan Green is a wonderful Author..
This book was really interesting. I actually have never heard of any of these guys. My knowledge of serial killers from other nations is very minimal and I found this book very informative. Yes the book is short but it gives a lot of details and highlights in each case. I would highly recommend if you are into true crime.

This was a great audiobook. I love true crime and I have never heard of the 3 serial killers in this book. This book gives the listener a glimpse into some of the darkest minds and what unimaginable things some people are capable of. The book itself does not go into too much detail about the crimes, but it still may not be for everyone.
