Publisher's Summary

A dramatic and compelling true-crime psychological thriller 

This incredible story shows how John Douglas tracked and participated in the hunt for one of the most notorious serial killers in US history. For 31 years a man who called himself BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) terrorized the city of Wichita, Kansas, sexually assaulting and strangling a series of women, taunting the police with frequent communications, and bragging about his crimes to local newspapers and TV stations. After disappearing for nine years, he suddenly reappeared, complaining that no one was paying enough attention to him and claiming that he had committed other crimes for which he had not been given credit. When he was ultimately captured, BTK was shockingly revealed to be Dennis Rader, a 61-year-old married man with two children.

WORST NARRATION EVER!

As usual the content and story of a John Douglas book is without compare when it comes to the true crime genre, but the narrating of this book is like having a kindergartener do it. Constant mispronounced words etc. Who narrates a book from a former FBI agent and can't pronounce Quantico? or Et cetera? Are you serious? those are just two of the many examples of the constant errors in the narrating. Not to mention it sounds like he narrated in in his bathroom. I recommend reading this book, but def not listening to it.

Just started and my teeth ache already

Why would Audible use a narrator what has difficulty with ‘introduction’ (the narrator pronounced it ‘interducshun’) Quantico (kwan-TEE-koh instead of KWAN-ti-co) etc? I will update the review if I finish this to reflect my opinion of the story: this is my fourth John Douglas book this month so I’m on a roll.

Horrible Narration

The content is great. I have it in paperback...should have just read it myself again. The man that narrates this box can't pronounce words correctly. Very irritating.

Terrible Narration

Narrator ruins this presentation. How can someone reading a book about the FBI not be able to pronounce Quantico?

captivating at every point

For those interested in true crime and more specifically the psychology and crimes of serial offenders, there is no better author than FBI profiler John Douglas. In addition to his intimate, experience-driven insights into the minds of the most depraved murderers, his immaculate and descriptive writing style allow the audience to fully envelope themselves in the times, places, and events he illustrates. Often this quality is utterly bone-chilling, to fantastic effect. The accuracy of facts presented and revelation of exclusive information on the case are delightful for those who seek to know every nitty gritty detail. The story of BTK is one for the ages, and there is no better person to tell it than the Mindhunter himself. The narrator's voice performance was notably grating in my opinion, citing certain mispronunciations and an overall blandness. However, in pushing past those minor grievances I was immediately rewarded with one of the most in-depth and fascinating true crime stories I've read to date.
