Publisher's Summary

In September 2011, M. William Phelps made a bold decision that would change the landscape of reality-based television - and his own life. He asked a convicted serial killer to act as a consultant for his TV series. Under the code name Raven, the murderer shared his insights into the minds of other killers and helped analyze their crimes. As the series became an international sensation, Raven became Phelps' unlikely confidant, ally - and friend.

In this deeply personal account, Phelps traces his own family's dark history and takes us into the heart and soul of a serial murderer. He also chronicles the complex relationship he developed with Raven. From questions about morality to Raven's thoughts on the still-unsolved, brutal murder of Phelps' sister-in-law, the author found himself grappling with an unwanted, unexpected, unsettling connection with a cold-blooded killer.

Drawing on over 700 minutes of letters, dozens of hours of recorded conversations, personal and Skype visits, and a friendship five years in the making, Phelps sheds new light on Raven's bloody history, including details of an unknown victim, the location of a still-buried body - and a jaw-dropping admission.

stiff narration

story was pretty good but the narration was a little stiff and didn't seem to match the storyline for me

boring

i was disappointed because I had seen the author on Hagmann and Hagman and was looking forward to listening to the book. Unfortunately it was very boring. I thought I had to be almost through but I had only reached midway. Couldn't put myself through the other half.
