Publisher's Summary

Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking?

#1: Don't go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.

#2: Don't pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be certifiably crazy.

So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Crazy #2?

When Blake Crouch (DESERT PLACES, ABANDON) and Jack Kilborn (AFRAID, CHERRY BOMB), face-off, the result is SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an "After School Special," SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides.

Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, SERIAL is also a groundbreaking experiment in literary collaboration. Kilborn wrote the first part. Crouch wrote the second. And they wrote the third together over email in 100-word exchanges, not aware of each other's opening section. All bets were off, and may the best psychopath win.

F. Paul Wilson says, "SERIAL reads just like a Crouch or Kilborn novel: Full speed ahead, no flinching, no blinking, no brakes."

Along with the reinsertion of additional material cut from the original version, SERIAL UNCUT also has a vastly expanded beginning and ending, including an extended section that originally appeared in the novella TRUCK STOP by J.A. Konrath.

If you can handle horrific thrills, proceed at your own risk.

But if you suffer from anxiety attacks, nervous disorders, insomnia, nightmares or night terrors, heart palpitations, stomach problems, or are of an overly sensitive nature, you should read something else instead.

The authors are in no way responsible for any lost sleep, missed work, failed relationships, or difficulty in coping with life after you have read SERIAL UNCUT. They will not pay for any therapy you may require as a result of reading SERIAL UNCUT. They will not cradle you in their arms, rock you back and forth, and speak in soothing tones while you unsuccessfully try to forget SERIAL UNCUT.

You have been warned...

    "Sadistic, Graphic, Twisted Fun - They Nailed It!"

    If you enjoy gory, sadistic, bloody murder stories that are actually clever and written above the high school level, you've hit the jackpot. This is the best splatterporn I've found on Audible, add it to your list immediately if you always wish your serial killer books were more graphic. 100% kudos to the authors, they are gore-gentlemen and gore-scholars.

    "Gave us the creeps!"

    My husband kept saying "I can't believe we are listening to this!' We cringed, shuddered and kept wondering how people can think this stuff up to write, YUCK!!! But, we were cracking up at the end.
    I haven't read Crouch or Kilborn, love and know how sick and funny Konrath. If you don't mind listening about creeps, eating faces or pealing eyelids off of victims then help your self to this book.

    Story
    "I don't get it."

    Murder porn. Although multiple writers contributed, and despite the narrator who does a fairly good job of creating different voices, all the characters were essentially the same. Different stories bring the various characters together, but the threads lack intrigue or dread. Very repetitive and ultimately boring. Ending was weak, too.

    Story
    "EMOTIONS MONTAGE"

    YOU BROUGHT YOUR TOOLBOX, RIGHT?
    This is Throw up Scary. Another reviewer hits it on the head with Splatterporn. Each chapter is like s separate story and they kind of come together in the end. The first two chapters provide unique twists. The first six chapters were excellent. Then the story ran out of places to go and basically repeated itself. The gore becames less of the story and more gore for gore's sake.

    REGGIE BAR
    I thought the beginning of this was clever and witty and a little funny. Toward the end the gratuitous violence and gore just got old. It became like two guys trying to gross each other out with more and more sick stuff. I like sick stuff if part of the story, but sick for sick's sake is boring. I did how ever like the last chapter and the epilogue. Skip to the last chapter if you get bored. Fans of Matt Shaw and Jack Ketchum will enjoy this.

    Patrick Lawlor
    This guy does the majority of the narration. He has been around for a while and he is very good. He does J.A. Konrath's stuff perfect. Scary, gory with a hint of humor.

    Story
    "Too mant killers spoil the broth"
    What would have made Serial Uncut better?

    The authors needed to explore the past motivations of the various killers.


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    Certainly. Their style is fine. The direction of the short story is not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    They did not. It was well read.


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

    Yes. The interactions between the serial killers had great potential and has been explored by the likes of James Patterson. The potential was not realized.

    "Gory but a little Predictable"

    Liked the story premise however the characters bored me some. Quite gory and raunchy, so hardcopy torture-porn fans will enjoy. I'll give the book a C, not bad, but not awesome either.

    Story
    "Love Donaldson and Lucy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Serial Uncut to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Reading it doesn't do it justification as hearing it...especially if the right person is reading it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Donaldson - a complete whack job. Would love a book focusing on his character. I like Lucy too. She's a good 'supporting' actor.


    What does Patrick Lawlor and Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They make the characters believable. Patrick makes his character seem like they're real people.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I did while at work.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was funny but to be a serial killer I guess you have to be crazy. Love the interaction between Donaldson and Taylor and Donaldson and Lucy. To me those were the best parts.

    "Serial uncut"

    Very well written, although not for the faint hearted. As it is only short, it is a good introduction to the authors' other works.

    "Crouch, Kilborn and Konrath - a unity of sickness."

    This is my third installment from the pen of Killborn and just like 'Trapped' and 'Endurance', this one did not disappoint. I must admit with this particular book, the vivid and graphic nature of the story did start to disturb me at certain times. But what can you expect from a book where the nature of the story recounts clear monologues in the context of serial killing. I am about to start Kilborn's fourth book, 'Afraid', but perhaps I should take a couple of days of first, just to recover....brilliant author(s)...brilliant story.....thank you audible.
