For 31 years, a monster terrorized the residents of Wichita, Kansas. A bloodthirsty serial killer, self-named "BTK" - for "bind them, torture them, kill them" - he slaughtered men, women, and children alike, eluding the police for decades while bragging of his grisly exploits to the media. The nation was shocked when the fiend who was finally apprehended turned out to be Dennis Rader - a friendly neighbor...a devoted husband...a helpful Boy Scout dad...the respected president of his church. Written by four award-winning crime reporters who covered the story for more than 20 years, Bind, Torture, Kill is the most intimate and complete account of the BTK nightmare

I’ll add on to the other glowing reviews of this audiobook—it’s extremely well written and grips your attention. My only issue is the narrator’s mishandling of local jargon. I’m a native Wichitan and nobody ever spells out K-A-K-E when talking about the news station—it’s pronounced “cake.” Also, it’s the Ar-Kansas River, not Arkansas (like the state). The KAKE TV references were the worst misread and took me out of the narrative every time they came up.
