Publisher's Summary

The author of the true crime classic Lobster Boy now turns his investigative skills to the chilling true story of Kendall Francois, one of the most bizarre serial sex-killers of modern times.

In October, 1996, young, pretty, and petite women began vanishing off the streets of Poughkeepsie, New York. Most were prostitutes and some were addicts. By August, 1998, the toll had reached eight, when a prostitute told police she had barely escaped being strangled by Kendall Francois, 27, a 6'4", 300-lb. middle school hall monitor whose slovenly personal hygiene had earned him the nickname "Stinky". Inside his house, the smell was worse, as investigators discovered a tangle of rotting flesh and bones - eight female corpses, almost all decomposed. Francois was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

    "Thorough!"

    Loved it! I'm a Poughkeepsie local and I thought it was pretty well spot on and extremely interesting. Great narration! Just a few mistakes in ponounces names of locales.

    "Great true crime novel"

    This book is unforgettable. Great detail into the mind of a monster. His capture and trial were also well documented.

    "Good listening good reader"

    I found the book informative about the case in the crimes what I was disappointed in was not knowing the current status Kendall Francois. I really enjoyed the audible book and would recommend it to any true crime reader

    Story
    "Fine Enough, but Only Just"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The author becomes caught up on two themes: That the serial killer is a very stinky fellow who lives in an even stinkier house, and that prostitutes only prostitute to feed their drug habits. And be proceeds to revisit these themes over and over and over. Otherwise, it's not a bad book.


    Did Paul McClain do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Nah. He read the entire book in an over-the-top gritty 'cop' voice. It was kind of irritating.


    Did Body Dump inspire you to do anything?

    LOL. Maybe that's not the best question to ask on a book review about a serial killer???

    Story
    "Blah"
    What disappointed you about Body Dump?

    There was very little insight in to the mind and motives of Kendall Francois or any details about his life in jail after the killings.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Fred Rosen again?

    Maybe if it was about a more interesting character.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul McClain?

    Dunno


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nice focus on the families and victims
