Publisher's summary

For four years a killer, or killers, stalked Virginia’s Tidewater region, carefully selecting victims, sending waves of terror into the local community.

The Colonial Parkway Murders - the name given eight murders that took place in the Tidewater region in the late 1980s, two of which were on the historic Colonial Parkway, the nation’s narrowest National Park. Young people in the prime of their lives were the targets. But the pattern that stitched this special kind of evil together was more like a spider web of theory, intrigue, and mathematics. Then, mysteriously, the killing spree stopped. The nameless predator, or predators, who stalked the Colonial Parkway stepped back into the mists of time and disappeared.

Now, father-daughter true crime authors Blaine Pardoe and Victoria Hester blow the dust off of these cases. Interviewing members of the families, friends, and members of law enforcement, they provide the first and most complete in-depth look at this string of horrific murders and disappearances. The author-investigators peel back the rumors and myths surrounding these crimes and provide new information never before revealed about the investigations.

Very interesting cases but the narrator. . .

I heard about these cases through a true crime podcast and was interested enough to purchase this book. The book does not disappoint.

However, the narrator is difficult to listen to and at times, it hurts my ears! I am Southern and I know I have an accent, but I am not making a living as a narrator! This woman pronounces "ur" in the strangest manner. There is no accent that I know of that pronounces "murder" and "buried" the way she does.

Again, good listen, but I will never purchase a book read by this narrator.
