Publisher's Summary

Two young, attractive women. Both savagely attacked, brutalized, raped, and murdered. 

Rachel Newhouse disappeared on the night of November 12, 1998, in San Luis Obispo, California. Only months later, in the same town, Aundria Crawford lost her life in an act of unimaginable violence.    

As authorities worked to find clues to the killer's identity, parole officer David Zaragoza paid a routine visit to one of his charges - Rex Allan Krebs, a violent serial rapist who'd served only 10 years of a 20-year sentence. After sending Krebs back to jail for violating his parole, Zaragoza found a key chain belonging to one of the victims. 

An intensive search led to the gruesome discovery of buried remains near Krebs' secluded cabin. In his confession, Krebs asked, "If I am not a monster, then what am I?" A jury responded by sentencing him to death by lethal injection.

Well Written!

This author has become my favorite! Very detailed and engages the reader. A very gruesome story, but I like the way the writer explores the depth of the killer as well as the young women and ultimately shows all were victims of some kind. I definitely recommend!

worst crime book ever

90% of this book is about how the author some how tries to blame the serial killers messed up childhood for his brutal crimes , he should apologize to the victims for writing this book

Story pretty gruesome

Story was factually gruesome and hard to listen to some of the things this being did to his victims. The story-teller was pretty bad as he sounded like he was raspy and sometimes hard to understand because of it. Had to fast forward through another book of too-long back and forth with the trial rhetoric.

Informative

I want to be able to suggest this book, but I can't give it any higher than 4 stars. I chose 4 instead of 3 because I might be nitpicking a bit. *NO/minimal spoilers 1. The narrator has a nice voice though a bit hesitant in tenor. But he kind of sounds like he's reading out of a phone book. Bored to tears. A few voice lessons in assertive control would fix this in the future. However, he is not a chore to listen to. --If you require the author to be bright and upbeat or energetic to keep your attention then this is not the narrator for you. 2. The author of the book itself made a few 'interesting' choices in narrative. --First, the majority of the book is background on the killer. If you're looking for a book that teases you through 2/3 of the book with stories about the cops finding clues and eliminating suspects you will be sorely disappointed. The first 2 hours (app) is the story of 3 girls and the killer's uneventful capture. The rest..... is background on the killer and, oddly, his father. --The killer and his father have very very similar names. You have to keep their first names straight to follow the story and even then, with some prior knowledge of the case, I got so confused. The author constantly refers to both the father and the kill by their last names which, of course, are the same. It's rather annoying actually.
