This is the infamous follow-up to Serial Uncut, featuring 21 different serial killers.
For everyone who thinks the bad guys are so much more fun to read than the good guys, we've written a novel just for you.
In the annuls of modern thriller fiction, the villains always steal the show. We love to read and watch great villains. In many cases, they're the best, most entertaining parts of our books, so it only made sense to write a book featuring every major villain we've ever written.
They're all here...Lucy and Donaldson from Serial, Orson and Luther from Desert Places, Locked Doors, and Break You, Mr. K from Shaken, Alex and Charles Kork from Whiskey Sour and Rusty Nail, Isaiah from Abandon, Javier from Snowbound, and many, many more from the Crouch and Konrath/Kilborn books including Trapped, Run, Bloody Mary, Afraid, Endurance, and Shot of Tequila.
If you liked Serial Uncut, Killers Uncut is going to blow your mind, scar your soul, and scare you to death.
If you haven't listened to anything by Crouch, Kilborn, or Konrath, Killers Uncut is the perfect introduction to the dark side of their universe.
And if you enjoy a good bad guy (or bad girl), you're going to love this.
Because there are twenty-one of them featured in this book.
Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, Killers Uncut also takes the collaborative literary experiment begun in Serial and Killers to the next level, with most of the novel having been written online, where the authors could simultaneously write in real time. All bets were off, and may the best psycho win.

This is not a novel but a collection of short stories read one after the other. The description and introduction gives you the impression that the stories will be linked together to form a cohesive whole but this is not the case. Although the same characters feature in stories from when they are children and then throughout their lives, there is little character progression and no plot linking them together.
I am a big fan of Jack Kilborn and I've loved all his other books but this left me bored and disappointed.
The female narrator, Angela Dawe, has a very irritating way of lifting her voice at the end of each sentence which irritated me every time she spoke.
Although some of the stories were good (some better than others) I will not be listening to this again.
"A 'Killer" story....."
the story and characters....
yes, the way characters met each other and
The tone and it's like your listening to a good radio drama....
I want the story to continue.... LOL
"Best short story book ..."
I have read everything these folks have written, and this was my favorite so far. If you're a fan of extreme , unadulterated horror and skin-crawling details. A lot of characters from each author interact together , which makes for an interesting book. Although presented as short stories these flow together in a way that is fun for disturbed individuals like myself.
"Horrific, perverted and GRAPHIC"
Not quite my kind of book, although I couldn't stop listening to it. Not sure that I can blame the story (there are very sick people out there) but it was almost TMI about the lives and behaviors of serial killers.
The relationships between serial killers. It seems like anytime a serial killer has a run-in with other serial killers a) they can recognize each other as serial killers b) they bond and develop a relationship c) seem to gravitate back to each other eventually. I am not fond of stories that skip to the future, back to the past, then to the present and this book is full of that. Couple in the fact that it tells the story of multiple killers' lives, it sometimes left me trying to figure out where we were in the timeline and who's life we were reading about.
The opening story where we learn about Luther's past was so intense for me.
This is the follow-up to Serial and It's hard for me to say whether I'd recommend Killers or not. This is NOT the type of book I usually enjoy and the subject matter is graphic and scary as hell. But I could not stop listening and that counts for something.
