In this riveting audiobook, an award-winning Canadian author delves into the gritty, gruesome details of the most notorious serial killers to strike the United States, Canada and the UK, including the unidentified killers who may still be on the loose.
Close to home, Parker compiles a thorough case file on husband and wife serial killers Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. In an amazing twist, hybristophilia Homolka pulls the wool over the Canadian Government, giving the crown yet another black eye.
The horror genre is tremendously indebted to serial killers. Something about their twisted psychology and abhorrent acts have turned folks like John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, David Berkowitz, and Andrei Chikatilo, to name a few, into household names and media figures.
In Serial Killer Case Files, true crime author RJ Parker offers several cases that deal with the names above and also shine a light on killers that are not as present in popular culture but whose bloody actions are worse than any horror movie out there.

Somebody that knows nothing about the criminals mentioned in the book.
The moments that stick out to me are the glaring factual errors in the authors' "copy and paste" stories.
I have another book narrated by this guy. I don't find this voice annoying, his problem is sometimes he reads too quickly and stumbles over words. As usual with this author, the mistakes are not edited out, which for good money we pay for them is simply disgraceful.
Anger at the factual errors and the authors "copy and paste" stories. By copy and paste stories, I mean the author includes a load of stoires (cases) that are just lifted (copied) out of his previous books and put into this book to help fill it (pasted). They are not rewritten, and even the factual errors are all exactly the same. Very disappointing, and again he's taken my money.
If you have never heard of any of these criminals in this book, or this author, sure it's worth a listen. Otherwise AVOID.
"Straight Facts of Serial Lillers"
Anyone interested in a collection of facts about Serial Killers this is worth a listen
Serial Killer Anthology because it is a collection of other True Crime writers along with RJ Parker
His performance was very appropriate for the context being somewhat clinical and fact driven. Impressed with his ability to pull off the foreign names
Encyclopedia of Death Serial Killers
Just the facts kind of True Crime writing, some books give you a bunch of fluff and human despair. This True Crime book gives you just the plain facts and a starting point if you want to research further for many cases explained in this book.
"another good book from RJ Parker"
I prefer the audio to the print edition.This was the first audio book ever. Liked the audio book because I can get something done around the house while listening to it.
Great sound and talked clear enough to understand
RJ Parker is a great true crime book writer and can't wait for the next one
"Another amazing piece by RJ Parker"
Another amazing book by the great RJ Parker. He never fails to not only be informative but also deliver the information in a way that it will haunt you. I fount the chapter on female serial killers ( specifically the part on Wood and Graham ) chilling .
A good editor and reader
The subject and info is interesting, if you can follow it with this reader
Bad writing with incorrect English, and a reader who paused mid sentence.... Sounds done with a sentence, then adds on a few more words. Mumbles sometimes and clearly leaves words out. It gets worse as the book goes on. Found out its self published. Tried to leave a message on the site, but even it doesn't work right. Nothing happens when the submit button is clicked. This book would need good editing and a good reader to really be any good.
"Very Informative, and surprisingly entertaining."
Yes, I recommended it to my wife. She really likes this genre on TV, so I thought she would find it interesting and informative.
Not sure I could compare this book to any other book. Most other books I read that are like this one seem to drone on and on, whereas this book seemed to fly from chapter to chapter. Yet, somehow, the information it relayed was fairly easy to retain.
Sorry, I didn't have a favorite character. I did find it interesting to know that Lizzie Borden was never convicted, and lived out her life with her sister after the case was settled.
Probably not, but that is not a negative in regards to this book. I don't watch a lot of movies outside my home. Now, If it were a movie I could watch from home, (DVD, Netflix, On Demand) then I would definitely consider sitting down with my wife and watching it.
"Many wrong facts"
