Description

Presented for the first time in audio format, the chilling transcript of Stephen G Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth's interviews with notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, as seen on the hit Netflix documentary series Conversation with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes - based on their New York Times best-selling book.

Handsome and educated, Ted Bundy killed scores of women during the 1970s, eventually confessing to 30 murders committed over seven states between 1974 and 1978. In 1979, much to the surprise of the nation, Bundy made the bold decision to represent himself in the Chi Omega murder case, thinking that his intelligence and enigmatic charm could best the prosecution. He was convicted, however, and was incarcerated on death row in Florida State Prison. After he exhausted all appeals, Bundy spoke to detectives, confessing to other homicides he committed across several states. He had already spoken frankly about himself, his victims, and his crimes to famed journalists Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth.

Thirty years later, thanks to the combination of an unlikely killer, a sensational murder trial (featuring Bundy acting as his own attorney), and a series of Death Row interviews that represented the dynamics of any extraordinary psychological profile, this prolific serial killer continues to intrigue and haunt the American popular imagination. Yet as Netflix’s sensational show reveals, an old case is never as preserved as it may seem.

Presented in audio format for the first time, Ted Bundy: Conversations with a Killer provides shocking insights into the killer's 11th-hour confessions before his death in a Florida electric chair in January 1989. Drawn from more than 150 hours of exclusive tape-recorded interviews with Bundy in 1980 by Michaud and Aynesworth - in which the veteran journalist used a psychological tactic to get Bundy talking in the third person - this audiobook, voiced by a cast of narrators, is a harrowing portrait of a serial killer’s final reckoning and the two journalists trying to understand the psychology behind the darkness.

Extraodinary insight into the mind of Ted Bundy

Many books and documentaries talk at length about Ted Bundy's crimes, intelligence and compartmentalized mind, then follow up with a short quote from TB supporting their claims. I'm much more interested in listening to TB himself at length, as opposed to authors summarizing and interpreting him for us. And that's exactly what this book provides.

He's questioned exhaustively about the 'Ted' murders, motivations, methods, and psychology. Only he describes things from a detached 3rd person perspective about an group or individual capable of committing such crimes. He sounds more like a professor of criminology than a serial killer. But his insights are significantly more relevant because he's speaking from experience and not speculating about crimes other's have committed. His statements are carefully controlled but impressively detailed at the same time. I found his detachment and ability to speak so casually about such horrific materials chilling. He doesn't confess to anything, but ends up providing a tremendous amount of insight into the mind of a serial killer. It's clear TB was brilliant and had an incredibly deep well constructed criminal mind.

Although I support the death penalty, and believe TB was the perfect candidate for such a punishment, I can't help wonder if an exception should have been made in his case. In the ongoing effort to understand serial killers minds and motivations... and abnormal psychology in general... I believe TB could have provided the field with a lifetime of relative and insightful information. He knows more about the subject than anyone who simply speculates about it, and is intelligent enough to evaluate all sides of things from psychological and sociological perspective. Of course determining his truthfulness is tricky business. This is something I believe the author overlooked, during the interviews he yells at Ted demanding a confession and accurate body count in order to sell books. Missing the more interesting and deeper understanding of things Ted was providing. It was like Ted was the teacher in the room, and the author was an impatient press reporter.

This is a perfect companion book to Ann Rules Stranger Beside Me.

Great listen

I wasn’t sure of the Ted narrator the first time I heard him speak but he definitely grew on me. He really captured Ted and actually sounded quite a lot like him, and the way he talked.

Great narration to a psychopathic

We really should not have killed Ted bundy, we could’ve studied him like a lab rat if need be to prevent future Ted Bundy is being formed. What a waste of our tax dollars that was. And will never know what his true mental illnesses were but they were obvee the perfect storm to create the monster that was Ted Bundy.

WOW...! Extremely wicked, vile , insightful....

This was a jaw dropping book. I would highly recommend to anyone trying to understand the mind of a killer. Though it only scratches the surface of the true mind of Ted Bundy. Not because of the investigators but the lack of Ted’s ability to admit guilt and confess.
Anyone wanting to listen to this book to hear the gory details will be disappointed, as I was. Once again Ted would not allow himself to full commit to the re-telling of his crimes. None the less it is the closest thing to what really took place as told by the killer.... in the third person of course.
I would not consider this book a true crime book. It’s more of a convoluted admission of a sick individual. Once started though, I could not stop listening until the end . Always wanting a little more, just like the investigators.
The book starts off a little slow but by the middle section of the book things are red hot. The different changing voices through me off a little but by the end of the book, I left as though Ted Bundy himself was reading it. Give it a listen. You won’t be disappointed.

Amazing

Amazing book into the insight of Ted Bundy’s mind. Saw the film on Netflix and found this was a great companion to it.
Very well written and narrated I found I couldn’t stop listening and read (listened) in one sitting.

I think anyone who likes reading true crime will enjoy this as well as anyone who is fascinated how the human mind works

Great, but....

Great book but the choice used for TB was not the best. There are enough actual recordings of Ted that I would think a better voice actor could have been found. Just my take. Otherwise, great.
