He was a hard-working small business owner, an Army veteran, an attentive lover, and a doting father. But he was also something more, something sinister. A master of deception, he was a rapist, arsonist, and bank robber, and a new breed of serial killer, one who studied other killers to perfect his craft. He methodically buried kill-kits containing his tools of murder years before returning to reclaim them. Viewing the entire country as his hunting grounds, he often flew across the country to distant locations where he would rent a car and drive hundreds or even thousands of miles before randomly selecting his victims. Such were the methods and madness of serial killer Israel Keyes. Such were the demands of the Devil in the Darkness.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
It is really difficult to review this book because it was very hard to understand the story as read by this narrator. He has an extremely odd reading pattern in that he stops as if there is a period in the middle of sentences to catch his breath. As a result, it often changes the meaning of a sentence. I think he reads to the end of each line and stops for a breath instead of the end of each sentence. I was quite distracted with this and had to stop the recording and go back and listen when sentences did not make sense. I realized it was because he does not use periods or commas as reading guides. This made the story very unenjoyable and I would not purchase a book with Don Kline as the narrator in the future. I volunteer in a recording studio; editing books that have been recorded for people who are blind and I wonder if this book was put through any review process before it was offered for sale. Because I think most sound editors would flag this book .
"Hire a professional narrator"
The narration is SO bad I can't even listen. The emphasis is put on the wrong words as if he is just reading individual words rather than a sentence. I can't possibly tell you if the story is good or not because I can't get through the book with this narration.
"Interesting look into the brutal mind of a killer."
But the narrator has poor enuciation and pronunciation, and poor reading rhythm.
The production suffers , while the storyline is intriguing.
"Fascinating story of evil"
The subject of this story is truly evil. His story leaves one questioning the true nature of humanity. The actions and decisions of this man were so coldly calculating that he is a clear example of the sociopath.
Unfortunately the narrator has a stilted, halting style that truly challenges one to enjoy what is otherwise a very interesting story. Ugh one of the worst I have had to suffer through.
