Brilliantly told

love this, finished all 14 episodes in one day. has you booked start to finish. a very interesting story told by the detective and other people that lived it. stars deducted as in a couple of episodes audio snippets over lap each other to the point you can't make out what is being said. otherwise, brilliant.

easy to follow, tense and facinating

loved it! great documentary. very technical and shows you how hard detective work actually is. loved narration and would love to hear more of series like this. episodes are a good length and were easy to follow who is speaking and when.

Had me hooked

Is it wrong to say I really enjoyed this? It was compelling. I almost found myself cheering at the end. My thoughts go out to all the victims of such horrendous crimes.
A fascinating, interesting listen.

I now hate this man more than any other human ever

A story of ineptitude of the American police forces in the 70's when it came to sharing information , of a truly evil man and of the birth of a DNA technique which may render serial crimes like this a thing of the past. An incredible overview of a mans determination to bring a faceless man to justice. Well told, well structured and well narrated. A must listen.

Great Series

I could not believe that this person managed to escape every time when he was sighted or came face to face with someone. It is scary that he managed to evade capture for so long and how he escalated each time after he was nearly caught in the act. DNA is a great tool, The authorities in the USA & here in the UK won’t allow every bit of evidence to be tested because of the privacy of people. What about the privacy of the murdered person or the victim of a sexual attack? I think their justice should be put above privileged privacy. If you have done nothing wrong then you don’t need to hide.

Anyway. This is Well worth a listen and you get drawn in and start to feel for the people who take part of this program. This is one of the best I have come across but I think you should read/listen to I’ll be Gone in the dark 1st.

Well done & Congratulations

Good story but a little too Hollywood

Did this really need to have so many episodes? No. It's a tale that could have been told much more swiftly without missing out on the core details. Both narrators sound a little too polished, like it was CSI Audible at times.

Riveting!

This series will have you rushing to your phone, at the end of every episode, to download the next straight away. Such a fascinating and frightening tale of a real life monster. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
