Publisher's Summary

On February 29, 2000, John Price took out a restraining order against his girlfriend, Katherine Knight. Later that day, he told his coworkers she had stabbed him and that if he were ever to go missing, it was because Knight had killed him. 

The next day, Price didn’t show up for work.

A coworker was sent to check on him. They found a bloody handprint by the front door, and they immediately contacted the police. The local police force was not prepared for the chilling scene they were about to encounter.

Price’s body was found in a chair, legs crossed, with a bottle of lemonade under his arm. He’d been decapitated and skinned. The “skin-suit” was hanging from a meat hook in the living room, and his head was found in the kitchen, in a pot of vegetables that was still warm. There were two plates on the dining table; each had the name of one of Price's children on it. 

She was attempting to serve his body parts to his children.

Man-Eater is a dramatic and gripping account of the first women in Australia to be given a life sentence without parole and a special addendum "never to be released". Ryan Green’s riveting narrative draws the listener into the real-life horror experienced by the victim and has all the elements of a classic thriller.

Caution: This audiobook contains descriptive accounts of abuse and violence. If you are especially sensitive to this material, it might be advisable not to go any further

Interesting narrative

An interesting take on true crime. The information gathered (I would assume, I didn’t find any references but hope that as this is advertised as non-fiction that all inclusions are supported by fact) is woven into a cohesive narrative of the killer’s life, rather than the traditional format of reporting. The gruesome murder actually only accounts for a very small part of the novel, and feels more like a conclusion to the story of Katherine’s life, rather than the event at the epicentre of the book.

Very interesting

I liked the way Ryan told the story of Katharine and her messed up family
What’s really crazy is what she gets away with and the amount of abuse the men in her life take from her only to go back time after time
Interesting with good narration

Great Read

Man-Eater: Terrifying True Story of Cannibal Killer Katherine Knight was a great true crime story by Ryan Green. This book follows Katherine Knight from her upbringing to the day she committed a chilling murder. John Price took a restraining order out on Knight and later that day he told his co-workers if he ever goes missing its because Knight killed him. The next day would prove to show that Price was right because Knight heinously murdered him. I enjoyed reading this true crime novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Deeply disturbing but worth it!

This story follows the life of one of one of Australia's most despicable people. Katherine Knight was a horrific person whose jealousy took her to levels of rage that are seldom seen or heard about. That led her to a final act that is beyond horrifying. This book is a strange ride and not one that I typically go for but the way it was written and narrated draws you in. I will need to check out other things that Ryan Green has written.

Captivating

It's true. This reads like a thriller. Green's presentation of this horrifying case is captivating and Steve White's performance complements the telling.

Monster incarnate; fascinating yet troubling

A fascinating story of a monstrous woman. This was a well written and well told story. I’ve read Ryan Green’s stuff before and this is his best work. If you want to delve into the mind of a psycho and rummage around a bit, this is a great place to start. The narrator has a smooth delivery and did a good job presenting the book.

OK story, Boring performance

The story itself was fairly well written but the performance was phoned in and I found myself drifting away while listening.

Brilliant a good listen/read

Man-Eater: The Terrifying True Story of Cannibal Killer Katherine Knight.
Ryan Green is probably the best true crime writer around.
This is another amazing tale, the author manages as he always does the horror of the crime and the damaged personality of the perpetrator.
Steve White's narration is excellent and keeps your interest. A great team Green & White..

So many sickos-so little time

This story is yet another in a long line of crazies we are surrounded by! The story felt at points that it could have been reduced and was becoming repetitive but that was the nature of this woman, Katherine Knight. Still a good listen!

I wanted more detail but still liked it a lot

Maybe I am just a weirdo but I feel like the story did not focus enough on the act itself as it is fascinating. The background was helpful to establish the reasons this happened but the crime itself was worth more action. The story was still a good one to read, and I would recommend to other true crime readers.

Hard to follow

Is it me ? Or is this book hard to follow? I had chosen it originally because I like the narrator but the story itself was back and forth to me. It was ehhh , my opinion
