Serial killers: They cross the bounds of evil. They murder at random without logic or reason other than the one twisting in their sick and evil minds. They are diabolical, vile creatures devoid of morality or pity. You will meet a chosen few of them in this audiobook. We will see that serial killers are roaming among us all, from small towns to big cities. They are not limited to a particular place, gene pool, culture, social class, or religion. They are not restricted to any particular demographic or political propensity and they can be of any gender.
Some of the serial killers chosen for this first annual Serial Killers True Crime Anthology you might have heard of and we present their tales in new ways. Others have not graced every newspaper, tabloid, or television screen and represent tales of true-crime horror told in detail for the first time in these pages.
Five of true crime's most prolific authors have come together in this audiobook to present their most compelling cases of serial homicide, famous and not so famous.

I cannot answer this question accurately because I could not finish listening. See my comments below on Don Kline's performance.
I believe the information in the book was interesting, and would have more of an impact if the narration was better.
Don Kline consistently made basic mistakes in grammar/pronunciation, restarted sentences mid read, stutter/stopped while reading which made the experience unbearable.
Don Kline clearly does not understand proper sentence structure, which makes listening nearly impossible. Don completely and repeatedly missed where the emphasis of a sentence lies, did not read punctuation properly (e.g. the comma), and could not move from one sentence to the next.
Honestly...reading should be the top most skill when interviewing someone to narrate a book. Audible staff should have previewed this book and then rejected its submission for such poor quality in narration.
I am unable to answer this question honestly due to not being able to finish.
Never let Don Kline narrate again...I simply will not buy another book with him listed at narrator.
The actual written book might be great. I can't tell, because the reader halts in mid sentence, often multiple times. You can't follow the story because his CONSTANT pausing makes it impossible. This is not a case of a few stumbles. I'm very tolerant of different readers and have never, in my 10 years with audible, and at least 1000 books, come across anything like this.
I have always been fascinated by this subject. Not because I think there is anything good about it, but more wondering why and how a person could do these things. And having 4 teens, I want to know all the danger signs and situations to avoid.
No way. And I've never said this before about any reader.
Did the people producing this story LISTEN to any of this? It's like a teen reading out loud for the class for the first time, the whole time. Example: "As forensic psychiatrist........ James Money......more recently explains..... the limbic region of the brain is responsible...... for predation and attack and defense.... of both the self and the species." And some sentences are worse. The more complicated the wording, the more pauses. Sometimes after only a word or two. This makes it impossible to follow where a sentence begins and ends. You can't just relax and get into the story.

Anyone interested in True Crime and the inner workings of a Serial Killer this book is packed with plenty variety and engrossing studies of what makes a Serial Killer
His ability to read some of the names without a flaw, my only complaint but didn't really take away from my enjoyment was the two spots where narration editing was not removed where he would say start over and repeat the sentence.
Yes as long as the subject was of interest to me.
Many facts from the different authors and their own special interest in the subject of a Serial Killer.
I read plenty of True Crime and found this book very entertaining and informative. I'm a fan of the authors of this book and have collected other works from them.
This book is a collection of new cases I have not seen in other book forms.
There seems to be different forms of True Crime some is wrote like a mystery movie such as a Ann Rule book, and some take a police point of view that is very entertaining. The collection in this book is another form of Just The Facts that take away all the fluff and just entices you into a study of a criminal mind.
I did enjoy the separate stories. My favorite was about Robert Pickton
all the other crime books I enjoy
I actually loved the narrator. He was very earnest. I enjoyed his voice and his cadence. I would listen to him again, anytime.
Yes it's very informative
Well written and captivating
First time. I thought he done a great job
People are intelligent and can make up their own minds. Commenting "don't buy and worst audiobook ever"? Trying to sway others. These are usually written by other genre authors unfortunately. This is a great book
This may be a great book in print, but this audio version is terrible! The narrator marks errors directly to the narrative, but it's not edited out. He fumbles over words and it's just a mess. Terrible!
Narration horrible...narrator jumbles words and didn't even get recorded again for a better take...seems cheaply done
