    The California Prison System houses a mixture of Mexican cartel members, Mexican mafia, Bloods, Crips, and thousands of other street gangs fighting for control and the author turns this story into a pulp thriller of true crime. Glenn Langohr takes you on a journey back into prison as he remembers a prison war with the Mexican Mafia before his release date. Days later, he got released. His friend he was in the deadly riot with didn't. He went to Pelican Bay's Super Max.

    The horror genre is tremendously indebted to serial killers. Something about their twisted psychology and abhorrent acts have turned folks like John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, David Berkowitz, and Andrei Chikatilo, to name a few, into household names and media figures. In Serial Killer Case Files, true crime author RJ Parker offers several cases that deal with the names above and also shine a light on killers that are not as present in popular culture but whose bloody actions are worse than any horror movie out there.

    What was most disappointing about RJ Parker’s story?

    No new or good information


    How could the performance have been better?

    New or interesting information

    The bullshit

    In Deal with the Devil, five-time Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter Peter Lance draws on once-secret FBI files and exclusive new interviews to disclose the epic saga of Colombo family capo Gregory Scarpa, Sr., who spent more than 30 years as a paid Top-Echelon FBI informant while wreaking havoc as a drug dealer, loan shark, bank robber, hijacker, high-end securities thief - and killer. A Mafia capo who "stopped counting" after 50 murders, Greg Scarpa was enlisted by the FBI as early as 1960.

    SCOTT says: "Great story line not so great narration"
    "Way too much information, no story."

    Would you try another book from Peter Lance and/or Peter Lance?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Peter Lance’s story?

    It's amazing how little the writer knows how to put together a story. It is painfully boring and it really doesn't need to be


    How could the performance have been better?

    Instead of writing facts and statements, tell a story..doh!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deal with the Devil?

    The whole lot


    Any additional comments?

    How can anyone think this is entertaining ?

    When a serial killer is operating in a community or state, it is extremely scary for everyone. This book focuses on serial killers who have been captured and dealt with accordingly. These are some of the most notorious and ruthless killers in history. Case Closed is a compilation of criminal file dossiers on several serial killers, including Ted Bundy; John Wayne Gacy, The Killer Clown; Jeffrey Dahmer; Donald Henry Gaskins; Gary Ridgway, The Green River Killer; Dennis Rader, The BTK Killer; and many more.
