Publisher's Summary

California has spawned some of America's most notorious serial killers - The "Grim Sleeper" Lonnie Franklin Junior, the "Night Stalker" Richard Ramirez, and Randy Kraft are just three of the Golden State's most notable - which has brought the state some unwanted and some would say unwarranted attention. For its part, California is the most populous state in the US, so it would stand to reason that it would have more than its fair share of serial killers. But the state does seem to breed its own special blend of sociopaths.

Far from the glitz and glamour of Los Angles or the scenic backdrops of the Bay Area, two men embarked on a vicious campaign in California's Central Valley that left at least 20 people dead. The two men - Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog - became collectively known by law enforcement as the "Speed Freak Killers" because the duo were almost always under the influence of the drug crystal methamphetamine when they committed several strings of murders during the 1980s and '90s. Herzog and Shermantine were known to be avid outdoorsmen who hunted and fished for various game, but when the two men were high on meth, they focused their attention on hunting the ultimate game - humans.

Listen to the following book and learn the complete story of the Speed Freak Killers, Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog. You will learn about the early lives of the two men and how they evolved from local toughs into one of the most efficiently dangerous serial killer pairs in American history. The Speed Freak Killers' odyssey of murder continued for nearly 20 years and in many ways continues on until the present. So open the book if you dare to learn about one of the most notorious serial killer tandems ever known.

Well researched gruesome true crime story

Hunting the Ultimate Kill by Jack Rosewood details the lives of the Speed Freak Killers, two childhood friends, Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog, that reigned terror on Cali back in the mid-late 80's, often while high on meth. It's not surprising that Shermantime turned out so screwed up. At one point, Mr. Rosewood recounts how Shermantine's parents would shoot around his feet and if he flinched, they would continue to shoot at his feet until he withheld moving or showing any emotion. Crazy, right?! Their downfall came as technology got better and the ability and acceptance in using DNA to solve crimes became more acceptable in the courts.

This story is just unbelievable, though I know it's true. If you're a fan of true crime and like learning the motivation behind serial killers, you'll definitely enjoy this. I also recommend Jack Rosewood's story about Jeffrey Dahmer, which was also researched and written very well. Kevin Kollins does a good job narrating this factual tale. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

Excellent detail

I'm a big fan of true crimes. I listening to them often. Think I'm always trying to figure out why people do the things they do. Unfortunately it's never cut and dry.
This book is very well-written. It has tons of detail it interviews with the crazies speed freaks. I've seen people on meth any other tend to go that crazy on it. . But never have I seen it lead to murder. Paranoia yes murder no. I'm very glad these two are behind bars.
I like how goes into detail and how it also brings up other murders. wroth the credit if this is your thing.

Kevin Collins does an excellent job reading this book he has a nice voice and is well spoken.

Hunting the Ultimate Kill

Hunting the Ultimate Kill: The Horrifying Story of the Speed Freak Killers
The Serial Killer Books, Book 2
By: Jack Rosewood

Jack Rosewood steps up his true crime telling by focusing on a pair of serial killers known as "The Speed Freak Killers." These maybe some of the worst. Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog grew up together, killed together, but in the end one turned on the other. A good recounting except for the repetition of their " moniker." Since they were the only ones focused on in this book. Interesting ending!


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Kevin Kollins does well with this genre.

Great book for those who have morbid curiosity

I got this book for free from the author. I enjoyed it, since I enjoy reading about serial killers. The voice and tone of the narrator set me off at the beggining, then I got used to it.

The book was well structured, starting from other groups of serial killers and ending in the police mistakes during the whole investigation.
