Publisher's Summary

Even the coldest-blooded killer was once a child.

Richard Trenton Chase started life without a hitch. Popular and well-liked, his future looked bright as the Cali sun...but those around knew nothing of the dark truths that he fostered. His parents’ marriage was rapidly falling apart, and soon he began to suffer from strange health problems. Rapidly declining, he decided there was only one solution....

....and that was blood.

Richard’s childhood fascination with death became a full-blown psychotic obsession, and the fear of losing his blood drove him to butcher and consume animals. In time, however, this wasn’t enough, and Richard turned to larger game.

The Vampire of Sacramento became one of California’s most notorious serial killers, and Chase’s crimes still haunt law enforcement to this day. But how did it happen? And could these crimes have somehow been prevented, sparing lives and untold sorrow?

Draw your own conclusions as the judge of this disturbed young mind. Was Richard Chase an evil soul or simply sick and lost?

Horrifying story

The true story depicts what untreated mental illness can look like. Horrifying ignorance from the parents who were, probably, they themselves not well mentally nor emotionally. The audiobook's lenght I found to be perfect for this true crime case. But I did not really like the narrator. Sometimes he shouted too loufly or the audio mixing is to blame, I am not sure. Also, maybe it is just me, but I found his tone a little too cheery for this sad story. A bit disrespectful to the victims. Maybe it's just in my head, but I would have preferred a less optimistic delivery.

Garbage book

This wasn’t even a book more like just some facts of what happened. Not worth my monthly coin that is for sure. I tried to return it right after I purchased but was unable to.
