Publisher's Summary

In this revised, updated, and expanded edition, the author explores the life of Theodore Bundy, one of the more infamous—and flamboyant—American serial killers on record. 

Bundy's story is a complex mix of psychopathology, criminal investigation, and the US legal system. This in-depth examination of Bundy's life and his killing spree that totaled dozens of victims is drawn from legal transcripts, correspondence, and interviews with detectives and prosecutors. Using these sources, new information about several murders is unveiled.

The biography follows Bundy from his broken family background to his execution in the electric chair.

Love letter to a villain

I bought this title because I listened to another title by this author available in the Plus Catalogue, and as I have read/listened to many True Crime books over the years, thought that this title would be a good one to add to my collection. Sadly, it is not. The writing, and even the narration, comes across as a breathy fan letter to a comic book villain, not a sober examination of a murderer and his victims. I did not keep track of how many times the author extolled the intelligence and "preeminence" of the subject, but it was enough that by the end of the book, I was more than a little appalled. I also found the constant references to the author's other books on the same subject to be off putting. I don't doubt that the book is factual, or that the author knows his subject well; it was just not for me.

Very good book for true crime junkies

My wife and I are huge fans of true crime. From podcasts to documentaries to driving 8 hours to Gatlinburg, TN just to see the light brown VW Bug, we spend a lot of time fascinated with people who commit insane crimes. Everyone knows Bundy, or at least think they do until they read a book like this. If you’re worried about gory details, you can still enjoy this expertly written account of the most famous murderer in recent history. The book is incredibly detailed and thorough, but it doesn’t go into the kind of details that will make you skip lunch. It’s well worth the time and money. I highly recommend.

Horrendous, Disturbing but the truth

The story of Bundy has been so glamorized but this reveals his true depravity.

Could not stop listening

This is a master storyteller. I learned new things and I could not shut if off. I will be listening to more and adding books too. Give a listen.
