Publisher's Summary

A marriage made in hell....

Barely five feet tall, sweet and innocent looking, Charlene Gallego used all of her charms to beguile pretty teenage girls and young women into the back of a van, where her lethal husband, Gerald, lay waiting. A killer couple bound together by secrets, lies, and sex slave fantasies....

Married multiple times and still in his early 30s, Gerald Gallego found the perfect companion in Charlene. Over a grisly period of 26 months, their bloody and brutal rampage of kidnapping, rape, and murder spanned three states and claimed 11 lives.

In this much-more-frightening-than-fiction tale of domination, depraved lust, substance abuse, violence, and murder, award-winning and best-selling criminologist R. Barri Flowers tells the whole story of a couple's twisted relationship, their ghastly crimes and ability to elude the law, how they were finally captured, and the two riveting trials that ultimately pitted wife against husband, with the stakes higher than either one imagined in their murderous bond.

    "Don't Waste Your Time or Money"
    What would have made The Sex Slave Murders better?

    Actual information about the crimes not a simple recitation of well known facts and outright conjecture.


    Has The Sex Slave Murders turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes, read too fast in many parts. Voice was not compassionate and in several instances stumbled and tried to catch her breath. Novice attempt.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Sex Slave Murders?

    All of it


    Any additional comments?

    This was the most boring 5 hours of my life! Very disappointed in this book. Will NOT listen to another book by this author or narrator.

    Story
    "Save Yourself the Time and Watch the Video"

    I have always believed that the book is always better than the video or in this case the documentary. One of the largest reasons for this is that more information is contained in the book. I have become used to gaining a lot more info in the book. In this book I wanted to find out something new about the murders or murderers. This was not the case for the book. You could Google the same information that is in the book. I was very disappointed in this work.

    "dissappointing"

    I found this book really boring and the narrators voice quite irritating so much so that I skipped through most of the book. I haven't listened to it since - not one of my better purchases on this occasion.
