Publisher's Summary

Will a serial killer soon walk the streets again?

Don Miller was quiet and reserved. As a former youth pastor, he seemed a devout Christian. No one would have ever suspected that the recent graduate of the Michigan State University School of Criminal Justice was a serial killer.

However, when Miller was arrested for the attempted murder of two teenagers in 1978, police quickly realized he was probably responsible for the disappearances of four women. Offered a still-controversial plea bargain, he led police to the bodies of the missing women.

Now, after 40 years in prison, Miller has served his time and is due to be released into an unsuspecting population. In Killing Women, author Rod Sadler examines the crimes, the “justice” meted out, and the impending freedom of a man nationally renowned psychiatrist Dr. Frank Ochberg described as “a member of a small, deadly, dangerous population: murderers who stalk, capture, torture, and kill; murderers who derive sexual and narcissistic gratification from their predation; murderers who maintain a ‘mask of sanity’ appearing normal and harmless.”

Meh.

The story was interesting but the author's repetition and style brought it to simply boring.

Skip the prologue and the first chapter!

By doing this you might be more attentive and absorb the details better, as the author spoils the storytelling by exposing the criminal and his capture right from the start, which is very sad as this true story should have being told in a much better way.

Tedious Court Play by Play

I appreciate the work that went into chronicling Miller's story, but I personally found the exhaustive account of Miller's court cases to be too much. This is really more of a play by play court procedural than anything else. very dry, not particularly deep, but a solid effort.

eh unimpressed

this was disjointed to say the least. it definitely sounds like the author gathered public documents and typed them up together. there was VERY little story here. but what annoyed me was, the author would often repeat details multiple times even if it wasn't relevant. the narrator was flat and made an already dry book, more like the Sahara

Too much court transcripts

Halfway through it’s basically a court transcript, It got very very boring. The narrator did a great job and it wasn’t his fault, the book just fell flat. I feel like the author got lazy and was just trying to fill pages.

interesting retelling of little known case

This book was very well written, with just enough detail and not too much (except maybe for a little bit at the end when the court cases and lawyer statements are described). Otherwise, there's just the right amount of detail on the lives of the people involved and what happens as a result of the crimes. I had never heard of this killer and that made it even more interesting. Will be looking for more books by this author.

Repetitive could be 1/2 a long

This book went over the same details so many time that it was aggravating. I kept thinking maybe I accidentally went back, but no. It seemed like they just wanted a long book so they just repeating the same facts over and over again. It was an interesting story but not well executed.

Throw away the key

Very well written story covering this fact based serial killers reign of terror. A very delusional man who I hope never has the chance to leave prison. He would only kill again if he has any strength in his aged body to do so!

not bad, but dry

the narrator was good, but the story didn't leave much for him to work with. there's not much emotion, conflict or suspense. would make a better paper back. the writing was good. seemed like he translated the police reports and trial transcripts.

The evil just oozes from the words

This very Frank book is very stomach churning. I can't think of a worse crime that these murders describe. The book is very well written, with a full account, and is very well narrated. Well worth listening to.

No. No. No.

Save your money. Save your time. Save your credits. The most tedious audiobook EVER. Bored me to sleep every night. At least three quarters played through my earplugs while I slept.

Interesting actual story, but telling is so-so

The actual story of what happened in this case is very interesting. However, from where the trial starts, it sounds almost a bit like court reporting or a transcript. I kept going until the end because I was invested in the outcome by then, but the description of the times in court are a bit boring.

Shockingly Intense

I possess what I like to term a die hard, true crime interest (to call myself a 'fan' feels too macabre to me), yet I had never heard of Don Miller before (that i can think of).

This retelling is gritty, unhinged and outright disturbing. The story itself is shocking, and i really appreciated the opportunity to delve into a case in gruesome detail, something you usually don't have time for in compilations. It really gave.me an opportunity to get stuck into the details, whilst doing the victims and their families, even Miller's no disservice in the way the case is written.

This is well worth the read if you really are interested in True Crime.

Good story but too detailed

The story was interesting and the narrator really takes you right into the story but was far too detailed in some parts where court hearings were being described.

I thought the book was very good

I enjoyed this book. I found the courtroom arguments as interesting as the police detective work.

I found the sentence he received quite troubling - expecting it to be much more severe. Perhaps it says something about the times when the crimes, trial and sentence all occurred.

Most annoying narrator I've ever heard

Narrator puts way too much effort into inserting his own creepily dramatic effect into what is already a sad tale. I'm just waiting for him to end each sentence with "muahahahaaaa".
Couldn't finish the book. just too off putting.
