An ex-con dubbed "The Folsom Wolf," James Marlow persuades his girlfriend, Cynthia Coffman, to travel across the country torturing, raping, and killing young women. But was James really the one who was controlled by Cynthia to carry out her master plan? Find the truth in this tell all! Written By A Condemned Man: I am a prisoner in San Quentin on Death Row. I love writing books as it passes the time in this dark place! I love writing poetry and am told that I am very good at it!

What disappointed you about I Wish You Were Never Born?

The storyline was really lacking in substance and honesty.

Would you ever listen to anything by James Gregory Marlow again?

No, I found him to be less than honest, truly mentally ill and tiresome.

How could the performance have been better?

Needed final editing.

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

I liked that it was self written.

Would you listen to The Serial Killer Whisperer again? Why?

Yes, there is so much information to process.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Serial Killer Whisperer?

The graphic letters

Have you listened to any of Alan Sklar’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't, but I was very impressed.

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

No, but I would listed for 5+ hours at a time.

Any additional comments?

Very graphic, if you are easily offended don't buy this book. If you want a glimpse into the inner workings of a serial killer's mind this is just the book for you. I have read a lot on the topic and let me tell you I was shocked at the level of disclosure in this book. Amazing read!

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 twenty-six months, their bloody and brutal rampage of kidnapping, rape, and murder spanned three states and claimed 11 lives.

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.
