From rampage killers to hunters that seek out human prey in the shadows of the night, this serial killer anthology is a collection of horror stories. Collectively these men were responsible for hundreds of deaths, and they all belong in the realm of the worst serial killers to date. Delve into eight different cases and explore the heinous deeds committed, the background of each killer, and the apparent motives for their crimes.
There are those who went on deadly rampages, such as Cho Seung-Hui and George Hennard; men who decided to inflict as much terror in one day as they possibly could. Famous serial killers are included, such as the Hillside Stranglers, Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono, and the Beast of the Ukraine, Anatoly Onoprienko. There are also lesser known murderers such as Fritz Haarmann and Ronald Dominique, who preyed on young men for their own deviant pleasures.
Each of these true murder stories will leave you with a sense of horror and perhaps a little fear. David Parker Ray's surviving victims still live in fear today, and this notorious true crime story is one of the most sadistic and disturbing. With tales of torture, mind control and violence, very few survived their time in Ray's toy box.
The true crime stories in this book have been selected because of the horrendous nature of their actions and the sheer volume of victims they slaughtered. Innocent people, going about their daily business or asleep in their beds, all make up these serial killers true crime stories.

*I received a copy of this audiobook for an honest review*
Fascinating! I'm always interested in learning about true crime stories from before I was old enough to understand. Which, I know, may be weird. But, it interests me, and I've always been into the psychology of such things. This book presented several stories of murders, and told them in short order while still giving all of the information necessary. This matters to me as I've read books completely full of fluff and that seem to be trying to drum up sympathy for a killer. This did not do that, and instead actually made sure that the victims were remembered in the telling, listing every soul taken.
The narrator was perfect for this genre, as well. Good pace and excellent tone, he kept me interested throughout.
I thought this was very well done and would suggest it to anyone with an interest in True Crime.
