Publisher's Summary

In this riveting audiobook, an award-winning Canadian author delves into the gritty, gruesome details of the most notorious serial killers to strike the United States, Canada and the UK, including the unidentified killers who may still be on the loose.

Close to home, Parker compiles a thorough case file on husband and wife serial killers Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. In an amazing twist, hybristophilia Homolka pulls the wool over the Canadian Government, giving the crown yet another black eye.

The horror genre is tremendously indebted to serial killers. Something about their twisted psychology and abhorrent acts have turned folks like John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, David Berkowitz, and Andrei Chikatilo, to name a few, into household names and media figures.

In Serial Killer Case Files, true crime author RJ Parker offers several cases that deal with the names above and also shine a light on killers that are not as present in popular culture but whose bloody actions are worse than any horror movie out there.

Straight Facts of Serial Lillers

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Anyone interested in a collection of facts about Serial Killers this is worth a listen

What other book might you compare Serial Killers Case Files to and why?

Serial Killer Anthology because it is a collection of other True Crime writers along with RJ Parker

What about Don Kline’s performance did you like?

His performance was very appropriate for the context being somewhat clinical and fact driven. Impressed with his ability to pull off the foreign names

If you could give Serial Killers Case Files a new subtitle, what would it be?

Encyclopedia of Death Serial Killers

Any additional comments?

Just the facts kind of True Crime writing, some books give you a bunch of fluff and human despair. This True Crime book gives you just the plain facts and a starting point if you want to research further for many cases explained in this book.

Great sound and talked clear enough to understand

Another amazing piece by RJ Parker

Any additional comments?

Another amazing book by the great RJ Parker. He never fails to not only be informative but also deliver the information in a way that it will haunt you. I fount the chapter on female serial killers ( specifically the part on Wood and Graham ) chilling .

Horrid Quality

What would have made Serial Killers Case Files better?

A good editor and reader

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

The subject and info is interesting, if you can follow it with this reader

Any additional comments?

Bad writing with incorrect English, and a reader who paused mid sentence.... Sounds done with a sentence, then adds on a few more words. Mumbles sometimes and clearly leaves words out. It gets worse as the book goes on. Found out its self published. Tried to leave a message on the site, but even it doesn't work right. Nothing happens when the submit button is clicked. This book would need good editing and a good reader to really be any good.

Very Informative, and surprisingly entertaining.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, I recommended it to my wife. She really likes this genre on TV, so I thought she would find it interesting and informative.

What other book might you compare Serial Killers Case Files to and why?

Not sure I could compare this book to any other book. Most other books I read that are like this one seem to drone on and on, whereas this book seemed to fly from chapter to chapter. Yet, somehow, the information it relayed was fairly easy to retain.

Which character – as performed by Don Kline – was your favorite?

Sorry, I didn't have a favorite character. I did find it interesting to know that Lizzie Borden was never convicted, and lived out her life with her sister after the case was settled.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably not, but that is not a negative in regards to this book. I don't watch a lot of movies outside my home. Now, If it were a movie I could watch from home, (DVD, Netflix, On Demand) then I would definitely consider sitting down with my wife and watching it.

This author has won awards?

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Somebody that knows nothing about the criminals mentioned in the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Serial Killers Case Files?

The moments that stick out to me are the glaring factual errors in the authors' "copy and paste" stories.

What aspect of Don Kline’s performance might you have changed?

I have another book narrated by this guy. I don't find this voice annoying, his problem is sometimes he reads too quickly and stumbles over words. As usual with this author, the mistakes are not edited out, which for good money we pay for them is simply disgraceful.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger at the factual errors and the authors "copy and paste" stories. By copy and paste stories, I mean the author includes a load of stoires (cases) that are just lifted (copied) out of his previous books and put into this book to help fill it (pasted). They are not rewritten, and even the factual errors are all exactly the same. Very disappointing, and again he's taken my money.

Any additional comments?

If you have never heard of any of these criminals in this book, or this author, sure it's worth a listen. Otherwise AVOID.
