Summary

We've all heard so much about the killers who grab the front pages, the ones whose crimes are so appalling that they exert a strange fascination on many people. But we rarely get to hear about what these people are like behind the headlines. Until now, that is. 

Criminologist Christopher Berry-Dee goes behind bars to get the last word from some of the worst criminals in the world. They speak of their violence and shocking deeds in their own words, from within some of the hardest prisons on earth. 

These interviews have been collated into this disturbing and unflinching analysis of the criminal mind. Here is what happens when you meet the people most of us know only from our nightmares and newspaper headlines. 

These are the killers' stories, in their words. 

Be prepared for a journey into the darkest possible side of human nature.

I should like it. But I don't

this was an uncomfortable listen. Beside the preppy cheery British reader would suit better reading a fantasy novel than tales of torture, there's a lot off with this one. the stories is told, but more exploitative than a try to bringing anything new to the table. the few time he points and say that this is new info never told before it's seldom anything of significance. two other examples of the more problematic trends in the book:. The casual use of the word "hooker" when the author himself is discussing murdered sex workers and sex slaves alike. The author giving detailed descriptions of murdered or soon to be murdered women's body without no legitimate reason. don't buy. there's nothing here that you haven't seen.

Less about the psychology and criminology than expected

After reading some of his other information and watching him on telly i thought this would be far more focused on the psychology of the criminals, how they tick and criminology, not just a regurgitation of their crimes, but it was quite good.

Early Review

Only ninety minutes into the book, still on John Wayne Gacey, but had to comment that the author mixed up the “Good” Dr. Jekyll and “Bad” Mr. Hyde characters when using them to describe Gacey’s public and private behaviors.

Ok, but a little disappointed

It was good, but I was a little disappointed. I thought there would be actual interviews. The last story just felt like a filler.
