Publisher's Summary

Ted Bundy is the most darkly fascinating and widely analyzed serial killer of the past century, possibly ever. No sex criminal, from Jack the Ripper to Zodiac to the Green River Killer, inhabits the popular mind as does Bundy. Now, the two men who know Bundy’s criminal nature best - Dr. Robert Keppel and author Stephen Michaud - have teamed to write the definitive narrative of Bundy’s bloody career, as well as the inside story of how Keppel tracked the elusive killer for 15 years, from his first days as a rookie Seattle homicide investigator to a series of tense encounters within the Florida State Prison where Bundy, in a doomed attempt at forestalling his execution, finally gave up some of his Terrible Secrets.

The story of Keppel’s details his long struggle to identify the handsome, articulate onetime law student and confront him with his crimes and draws from Keppel’s extensive mail correspondence with Bundy. The result is a riveting, close-up portrait of a “diabolical genius”, as a federal judge described Bundy, stripped of myths and misinformation and revealed - in his own words - for the archly sly, murder-obsessed predator he became.

Audio Cuts Out Too Much

Do NOT waste your money. the entire book has multiple audio drops which leaves out crucial details necessary to understand what is being said. I want my money back.

Disappointed

Disappointed title was misleading. Nothing new and some contradictory statements to what is known. Hayward testified no drugs found in or around the car. Saying Bundy didn't elaborate or get back with him on what he did to the Hawkins girl wasn't true according to Rules book and some old interviews Keppel did. I think he should have just said he didn't want to talk not that Bundy didn't talk about it himself.
