The Boston Stranglers | [Susan Kelly]

The Boston Stranglers

Beginning in June, 1962, the Boston area was terrorized for 18 months by an elusive serial killer who sexually assaulted and then strangled a succession of women. Boasting that he was the killer and that he had raped an additional 2,000 victims, Albert DeSalvo's horrific story became the subject of a best-selling book and a major Hollywood movie. But it was all a monstrous hoax: DeSalvo was not the Boston Strangler.

Publisher's Summary

Beginning in June, 1962, the Boston area was terrorized for 18 months by an elusive serial killer who sexually assaulted and then strangled a succession of women. Boasting that he was the killer and that he had raped an additional 2,000 victims, Albert DeSalvo's horrific story became the subject of a best-selling book and a major Hollywood movie. But it was all a monstrous hoax: DeSalvo was not the Boston Strangler.

In the only definitive book on this subject, Susan Kelly's detailed investigation shows us the true DeSalvo, a twisted pathological liar whose hunger for celebrity made him confess to crimes he did not commit. Kelly also proves that the stranglings were committed by at least eight different slayers. She even names the lead suspects - some of whom may have been getting away with murder for decades.

    Story
    "Too much useless information."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you like true crime, this book will bore the heck out of you for the first couple hours. Too much useless info through the first half of the book. Gets a little better towards the end.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Another true crime or possibly American classic.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Lorna Raver?

    I did not think her interpretation of the main character and others rang true.


    Was The Boston Stranglers worth the listening time?

    No. There were a few redeeming chapters during the last half, but for the most part was not worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    When a book is too easy to put down, I know it's not that great of a book.
