Richard Laymon has a style all of his own, if you are offended by violence and sex stay away. The book is a quick listen and filled with the sex and violence
My first book I have listened too
A nice variation of voices
Yes it was Richard was a master of Splatter Punk
It's sick and wild if you are into it go for it.
Jim Thompson is a legend and this is a great beginning this is high on my list
The whole look into running a movie house in the early years when a theater was the biggest thing in a town
The whole twist at the end
The dark fall the main character takes it's a slow decent but it's a fun ride
Listen to how it all started from one of the masters of dark voice and evil humans well worth to have in your library.
A short fun listen that will have you remembering the old Spicy Pulps
Witty dialog fun story
Yes they both did a great job and Mike Dennis is the go to guy for Pulp Noir
Yes will listen to again fun stuff
I have been a big fan of the old Pulps and when I listened to this one i was under the impression that it was one of the vintage stories of yesteryear and was surprised to find out it's the New Pulp and well worth checking out.
A master of crime at work introduction into the series of cop after a crazy killer as he puts the Clues together
Yes I would my group of friends is usually fans of Film Noir or old Pulp Crime novels. And this book covers both grounds. If anyone is a fan of Noir Films knows the film Detour and this book covers that story and so much more.
Alex Roth he plays the everyman story down on his luck and finds women dangerous.
His voice presentation is spot on taking you back to the times when the story takes place well worth the listen even if you already read the book.
I liked how the book gave us the different view points of the character. Like how it gives us the story of what his girlfriend is doing while he is tracking a crossed the US to surprise her
The book fills in way more of the story that the film did not capture anyone a fan of the film needs to read the book
Yes very informative giving you a look at the sick mind and the way media hypes it.
His in depth look at how a mass of people can be affected by a notion of a thought.
Spot on very professional
Moved not sure but frightened by much
The book gives you an informative look into the difference between Serial killers and spree killers and just normal homicide. It also takes a look at us the reader and fan of True Crime books, movies, and TV shows.
You will get plenty insight within this book and a look at how the media sometimes fans the fires to glorify some details and distort the truth.
In my top five of re listening to
Salinger ability to draw the reader in with his details and conversation verbaly and conversations only in the characters head.
Yes I have and he is becoming one of my favorite performers. He has a way to distinguish each of the characters voices without being distracting, and also captures the dialect of the region the story is taking place
Yes and then listen to again one I will return to I'm sure.
A collection of very short stories that will leave you to pounder them long after you listen to them. A perfect addition to my library.
sick perverted human
Spot on for True Crime
A very authoritative voice brings the crimes and sick notions to life
It would of been nice to but at times you have to reflect on the monstrosities this person committed.
M. Williams Phelps does it again, a terrifying look into the deaths of some friends all within a little group of drugs, sex, and violence.
He peels back the layers of this dark and violent crime exposing a dangerous manipulator pushing people and then just snuffing out their lives.
I also enjoyed the insight from John Kelly and the background M. Williams Phelps includes of what he went through trying to bring this story a story you will never forget.
The fountain of content, and the short chapters each providing another crazed killer
Plenty for anyone exploring the darkness of humanity
So many locations of lives coming to an end
The end of humanity
This book is a treasure of depravity. This book is a must for anyone who likes to read True Crime and the darkest side of the subject.
The book gives you plenty of detail upon each the Serial Killers including dates, victims,and the outcome of each case. The word count on each case is perfect for short spurt reading that is if you can put it down without going into the next case. No wasted fluff in the writing just right to the facts.
As a bonus you also get an extra writeup from JJ Slate contributing to the 101 Serial Killer so you get a taste of her very impressive style of writing, I'm already becoming a fan of hers.
Yes it's a prime example of one of our greatest Pulp writers of out time. Along with an outstanding reading of the book.
The build up of coming doom
A nice pace and very well difference in voices of the characters. Very engrossing really captures the feel.
His returning home.
Jim Thompson is a must read for any anyone who loves the pulps of yesteryear. This story has a simple story line that reflects struggles we are experiencing with the Fracking going on now.
Along with oil rights and some steamy hot scenes in the back of cars that used to have seats to have fun in, and the darkness inside the character that takes you down paths you may fear to go.
Not as good as Killer Inside Me but well worth a read.
