Summary

On February 29, 2000, John Price took out a restraining order against his girlfriend, Katherine Knight. Later that day, he told his coworkers she had stabbed him and that if he were ever to go missing, it was because Knight had killed him. 

The next day, Price didn’t show up for work.

A coworker was sent to check on him. They found a bloody handprint by the front door, and they immediately contacted the police. The local police force was not prepared for the chilling scene they were about to encounter.

Price’s body was found in a chair, legs crossed, with a bottle of lemonade under his arm. He’d been decapitated and skinned. The “skin-suit” was hanging from a meat hook in the living room, and his head was found in the kitchen, in a pot of vegetables that was still warm. There were two plates on the dining table; each had the name of one of Price's children on it. 

She was attempting to serve his body parts to his children.

Man-Eater is a dramatic and gripping account of the first women in Australia to be given a life sentence without parole and a special addendum "never to be released". Ryan Green’s riveting narrative draws the listener into the real-life horror experienced by the victim and has all the elements of a classic thriller.

Caution: This audiobook contains descriptive accounts of abuse and violence. If you are especially sensitive to this material, it might be advisable not to go any further

The only one that could accomplish this.

If I didn’t know better I would have said what a great horror fiction but I do know and it’s no fiction.
By the way, do you truly know your
neighbors?
There is only one person who can get you into the mind of a psychopaths and make you so clearly understand what’s going on in there and how it was created in the first place.
I believe that the author Ryan Green is an amazing in his capabilities after listening to his audiobooks is showing us that in the right conditions everyone can become a psychopath all you need is the right settings and abuse growing up, just like what the judge in this audiobook said that we all have it ( evil ) inside us but we don’t act on it which is all because our upbringing from the day we where born.
It’s scary to think how many are out there taking medications till you here about something horrible on the news because one decided not to take his meds.
Man-Eater:
Green truly is an artist and so much more!
Once I started there was no taking breaks I was just hypnotized all the way to the ending.
Excellent choice taking Steve White for narration of this audiobook, he got it perfectly!

This story had to be written and only Green could have done it, put you in the head of others, get it and make it interesting at the same time.

Absolutely recommended!!!

another great one

I love this author, although i do find it a bit disturbing, how he manages to get into the minds of killers

I also find it very disturbing, the acts that one person can do to another

I was fasinated by this story, although there were a few times when I shuddered at the inhuman acts carried out

If you enjoy true crime you won't be disappointed with this book.

Very interesting

I liked the way Ryan told the story of Katharine and her messed up family
What’s really crazy is what she gets away with and the amount of abuse the men in her life take from her only to go back time after time
Interesting with good narration

Great Read

Man-Eater: Terrifying True Story of Cannibal Killer Katherine Knight was a great true crime story by Ryan Green. This book follows Katherine Knight from her upbringing to the day she committed a chilling murder. John Price took a restraining order out on Knight and later that day he told his co-workers if he ever goes missing its because Knight killed him. The next day would prove to show that Price was right because Knight heinously murdered him. I enjoyed reading this true crime novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Deeply disturbing but worth it!

This story follows the life of one of one of Australia's most despicable people. Katherine Knight was a horrific person whose jealousy took her to levels of rage that are seldom seen or heard about. That led her to a final act that is beyond horrifying. This book is a strange ride and not one that I typically go for but the way it was written and narrated draws you in. I will need to check out other things that Ryan Green has written.

Captivating

It's true. This reads like a thriller. Green's presentation of this horrifying case is captivating and Steve White's performance complements the telling.

A playbook on how to shift blame from yourself.

Katherine Knight is the prime example of a person who doesn't understand the concept of accountability. She viewed herself as an automaton, and blamed other people as if they were pushing buttons that made her commit violent acts. Mr. Green outdid himself by expaining her mental gymnastics to the masses! He's very good at imagining what goes on in the minds of criminals!

What a "KNIGHT"-mare

This terrifying story of Katherine Knight, will literally send chills up your spine. This sadistic woman, who found enjoyment in slicing up animals and improving her knife skills by working in a meat factory, later gets revenge on John Price, after he will no longer allow her and her children to move in with him when she violated his trust by video tapping items that he had taken from his job, which ultimately got him fired. How did she get revenge you might ask....well, she sneaked into house in the middle of the night and woke him up by making love to him, then bludgeoned him and decapitating him. Then put his head in stew pot with carrots, potatoes and onions and served it to his children. When a coworker came by to check on him and saw a bloody hand print, the cops were brought in. When they arrived inside of the home, they were met with his skin hanging on the wall as if it was some animal. Sick, sick, sick

Monster incarnate; fascinating yet troubling

A fascinating story of a monstrous woman. This was a well written and well told story. I’ve read Ryan Green’s stuff before and this is his best work. If you want to delve into the mind of a psycho and rummage around a bit, this is a great place to start. The narrator has a smooth delivery and did a good job presenting the book.

I wanted more detail but still liked it a lot

Maybe I am just a weirdo but I feel like the story did not focus enough on the act itself as it is fascinating. The background was helpful to establish the reasons this happened but the crime itself was worth more action. The story was still a good one to read, and I would recommend to other true crime readers.

Brilliant a good listen/read

Man-Eater: The Terrifying True Story of Cannibal Killer Katherine Knight.
Ryan Green is probably the best true crime writer around.
This is another amazing tale, the author manages as he always does the horror of the crime and the damaged personality of the perpetrator.
Steve White's narration is excellent and keeps your interest. A great team Green & White..
