    Linda Strong

    This anthology explores 8 different cases of serial killers. This book will explore the killers, their victims, and give the reader a peek into their minds. 1. DAVID PARKER RAY - The Toy Box Killer Ray was a kidnapper, rapist, torturer of women and young girls. He carried out his crimes for 40 years before finally getting caught. It is suspected that he killed at least 60, but no bodies have ever been found. You won't believe who one of his accomplices was. 2. JAMES HUBERTY - The McDonald's Mass This anthology explores 8 different cases of serial killers. This book will explore the killers, their victims, and give the reader a peek into their minds. 1. DAVID PARKER RAY - The Toy Box Killer Ray was a kidnapper, rapist, torturer of women and young girls. He carried out his crimes for 40 years before finally getting caught. It is suspected that he killed at least 60, but no bodies have ever been found. You won't believe who one of his accomplices was. 2. JAMES HUBERTY - The McDonald's Massacre (San Diego) One of the most devastating rampages in modern American history. Driving through the front window of MacDonald's, he exited his vehicle and promptly started shooting the patrons. His end count was 21 dead and 19 horrifically injured. The youngest killed was 8 months old, the oldest was 74 years. 3. FRITZ HAARMANN - The Butcher of Hanover (also known as The Vampire of Hanover) Harrmann murdered, dismembered and disposed of the young men he lured to his home. He was responsible for at least 27 murders between 1918 and 1924 in Hanover, Germany. His method of murder was to bite his victim's Adam's apple. Once dead, he would dismember the body and throw the parts into a river. 4. ANATOLY ONOPRIENKO - One of the worst serial killers known. He terrorized the Ukraine as he slaughtered families in their own homes, then usually set fire to their homes. Men, women, children -- made no difference to him. When caught, he confessed to taking the lives of 52 people. 5. CHO SEUNG-HUI - Virginia Tech Massacre In 2007 this young man walked into the buildings at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Virginia. Diagnosed as mentally ill when a child, his family did little more to get him the help he obviously needed. It is said he wanted to recreate what had happened at Columbine. After killing 32 teachers and students and wounding 17, he put his gun to his head and fired a final time. 6. GEORGE HENNARD - The Luby's Massacre Hennard drove his pickup truck through the glass plated front of Luby's Restaurant in Killeen, Texas. There were 80 people inside, including the staff. Instead of firing his guns randomly, he targeted mostly women first. Those who survived all mentioned how calm he seemed. There were 50 victims in total - 23 killed and 27 wounded. He was shot by police 3 times, but it was his own gun that finally took his life. 7. KENNETH BIANCHI & ANGELO BUONO - The Hillside Stranglers Between 1977 and 1978, these two cousins tortured and killed women in Los Angeles. Their trials would become the most expensive in the history of California at that time. Sexual abuse, torture, murder ... horrific acts of brutality - before disposing of their naked bodies on hillsides that dotted the area. Buono died of natural causes while behind bars. Bianchi cannot apply for parole until 2025. 8 .RONALD DOMINIQUE - The Bayou Strangler Bodies of men were turning up in New Orleans, the victims of rape and murder. Before it was all over, 23 men would be dead. In his early years, it was discovered that Dominique was a homosexual. As a school student, he was bullied and teased unmercifully. As an adult, he was unattractive, unlikable and had no friends. His victims ranged in age from 17 to 46. Due to a DNA match, he was finally caught and confessed his crimes. Among some "honorable" mentions are John Wayne Gacy, Patrick Wayne Kearney. Jeffrey Dahmer, David Edward Maust, and Randy Steven Kraft. All these men were monsters who preyed on innocent people for their own guilty pleasures. In the last 50 years, there have been many incidents of men going on rampages in schools, colleges, restaurants, often with high kill rates. They often end in suicides. The killers in this book are the stuff of nightmares. The book is well-written, filled with facts not necessarily widely known. It's hard to say I liked this book .... some of it is hard to read, some of it extremely so. I did give it 5 stars ... even though I got up several times to check my doors and windows. I'm grateful I did not start reading in the middle of the night. Many thanks to the author who provided a digital copy of this book. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. 8 very well written murder cases book. They were all very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. All of them could also make great crime movies, college or other PP presentation, or better yet a mini TV series, or even a documentary (True Crime; American Crime Story; Investigative Discovery). You finally had references. I would have like to have seen more but you came around. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

    True crime This book gives a gruesome picture of some of the world's most dangerous serial killers including the McDonald's Massacre in San Ysidro, CA and the Massacre at Virginia Tech. With the problems within our society these days, I think people could learn from these accounts that our healthcare system is broken especially when people with mental health issues are not taken seriously and are just cast aside like no one cares. These people are victims themselves.

    Not a book to read on a quiet night at home by yourself! Excellent true crime reading. Yet again: just when you think you've heard it all before-you haven't.

Graphic descriptions of some of the worst murders in history. Horrible-but the kind of thing you're just glued to, to find out all about it. These were certainly some of the worst cases I've heard of. Horrifying murders and horrifyingly graphic details of dismemberment. Not a book to read on a quiet night at home by yourself! Varied cases from all around the world. One of these killed 52! Unspeakable horrors! And on the other side: Terrible treatment by the police and to the wrong man! Shocking! Forensics such as this fascinate me. Just a piece of fluff-and it can speak volumes. Right up to standard and hugely addictive reading.

    Not what I thought. I was hoping to read an analysis of various serial killers - what made them tick, how they operated, and insights into their pathologically twisted minds. This book lacks any depth - what's more, it covers some serial killers, but also spree / mass killers. There isn't much more than you could find in a newspaper article, and the writing is a bit sloppy and disjointed. An interesting subject, but not an interesting read. Not what I thought.

    I found some new and interesting stories in this audio. Some I knew and some I did not. I love true crime and the way the mind works. This was a truly and enjoyable listen. Mr. White did a wonderful job on the narration. He did a few character voices which were really good but most of the book is about facts and there is no need for them. He has a very pleasant voice that really adds to the detail of this audio.

The music fits the story when it is used it isn’t over powering and blends very well. I thought his performance was great and he added a lot to the story with his tones and emotions. I look forward to listening to more of his work. The research the author does is wonderful really getting all the facts and laying them out for the reader. I really got lost in the facts and the stories. I look forward to reading more from this author.

    I love true crime stories (why, I have no clue lol, I can't watch an animal even look sad but I can listen to serial killer stories all day long - huge Stephen King fan), and this one was a gem among gems.

    If you like true crime stories this is the documentary read for you. 8 serial killers young and old (stories) in a short (4hour) listen. The Audible version is a great listen and the musical additions to break up the stories add to the mystery and shock of the cases. I was provided with an Audible version of this book for my honest review through LibraryThing giveaways.

    Interesting but.. The subject !matter was interesting but there were a lot of generalizations made and the writing style is not refined. It felt a lot like reading a research paper written by a college student. Not terrible but not good either.

    This book tells the stories of 8 serial killers and killing sprees. Starting with David parker Ray known as the toy box killer. Each killer has its own chapter that includes details about their horrible crimes. The chapters each start with their childhood and end with their victims.

The chapters each start with their childhood and end with their victims. Most of the killers had one thing in common, a dysfunctional childhood. This reminded me of some documentary I've watched. These documentaries said that a criminal mind is developed from abuse as a child. Many studies I've read explain that the mother has the biggest influence on a child and when a mother is abusive it can damage the child's mental health. I like how the book went into detail about the killer's childhood. I would not recommend this book to anyone who is sensitive. I also would recommend this book to anyone who is younger than 13. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the details of killings.

    3,5/5. I like this book a bit less than the others I've read from this author. The stories felt like a little bit over explain and some time it just feel like they are just stretch to the limit to be longer and longer. I would I've taken maybe a case or two for the same book size. The cases are, like always, interesting well explain with the factual and psychological facts, the even, the after and the what may have cause it. Not as good as the others, but still a decent true crime book! 3,5/5. I like this book a bit less than the others I've read from this author.

    Informative 4 stars for this intricate reading of some of the most famous names to be imprinted on Americans minds & their more then 15 minutes of fame. A brief synopsis of 8 of the most prolific serial killers to grace the headlines. Interesting reading at best & thought provoking too.

    Good Read I just finished the book. I find it interesting how some people can be abused when young, and NOT become the abuser,and others do. How can you do the abusing when you yourself went through the same pain. Good book

    Not bad I find myself truly fascinated by the stories presented by Jack Rosewood in these books. My biggest complaint is that the format they are written in is a bit repetitive.They have a potential of being better by cutting the fluff and the story once.

    Jennifer Cervenka

    Repetitive Each chapter seemed to repeat the same facts over and over. I did like the victim breakdown and the initial beginning of each chapter but the rest of the chapter was just to once again elaborate on something already mentioned.

    Books that are poorly edited are difficult for me to enjoy. I lost patience when they mentioned the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings and mentioned Anita Hill as Anita Hall. So I'm done with this book. Books that are poorly edited are difficult for me to enjoy.

    While being informative, it gave just the surface details of the cases and moreso relied on the authors opinions. Also, the book was poorly made ( pages falling out AS I read it) and grammatical errors common throughout.

It goes on to actual true crime stories and accounts of events committed by evil killers. This is detailed and informative. It includes family history and back stories suggestive to dynamics and possible reasons for their lifestyle and arguable mental health issues. I prefer the written stories as opposed to the information obtained from trial manuscripts, but was not discouraged from reading the information provided in this book. I was able to read this at my leisure based on the number of different people it highlighted and the amount of information it touches base upon. This was a fairly good source of reference for those interested in true crime stories.

    A thought provoking book. The book presents presents horrific crimes committed by serial killers which are so shocking and tragic. The author has done a great job in presenting case summaries, their profile and factors contributing to their involvement in these inhumane acts. I also liked the brief summaries presented on the victims of these crimes. A must read for fans of true crime.

    Another great book from Jack Rosewood. This one is about serial killers, internationally as well as here in the US. It was well-written and well researched, with a lot of details, including each victim, and the motives. He also included quite a bit of the psychology behind each killer. One chapter is about David Ray Parker, a sadistic sexual serial killer that includes recordings by this killer. It is bone chilling, to say the least.
