    How did the deadliest serial killer in US history get away with murder for over 40 years? 

    Samuel Little was serving life in prison for killing three women, when he began to confess to a string of murders. And once the admissions started, the list didn’t stop - his total murder count reached 93 victims across 19 US States. Most of them were vulnerable women - sex workers, drug addicts, or both.

    Journalist Benjamin Zand leads an investigation that is both a true crime story and a forensic examination of how US law enforcement failed to stop the country’s most dangerous serial killer. 

    Along the way, Ben is joined by former sex worker, turned safety campaigner, Tika Thornton, herself a victim of child sex trafficking aged 12. Together they ask: what turned Samuel Little into a serial killer? How did he evade justice for so long? And could the same thing happen again today?

    An Audible Original produced by Zandland and Cup and Nuzzle.

Loving this so far!

Really shocking true crime story, which blows Samuel Little’s story open wide, along with the deep flaws and prejudices in American law enforcement.

Astonishing and alarming

This podcast in incredible and frightening in equal measures. The most concerning issue is that the general consensus is that nothing has changed sufficiently to prevent a repeat.
Be prepared to be shocked but listen anyway - you need to know about this….

Very powerful podcast

This is a brilliant listen. The story itself is troubling but the storytelling is really powerful and it's such an important topic. The hosts focus on giving the victims a voice and holding the police to account which is clearly necessary
