Inhaltsangabe

This incredible story shows how John Douglas tracked and participated in the hunt for one of the most notorious serial killers in U.S. 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.

This is a story of ordinary people and extraordinary evil - lock your doors, check your telephone lines, and read this book." (Linda Fairstein)
"An unforgettable portrait of a guy most of us are glad we never met." (Bloomberg.com)

Good product, bad packaging

The information about Rader in this book is fascinating. Douglas' writing is mediocre, but since that's not his specialism one can overlook that (some better editing might be in order, but see next point). As many other people point out, he comes across quite arrogantly, but in his job that's more or less a prerequisite. Anything less than complete self assurance would be useless when trying to deal with people like Dennis Rader.
Regarding the narration...where to start. Someone narrating a book written by an FBI aren't ought to be able to pronounce Quantico, for starters. There were plenty of other mispronunciations to go around. I found it generally robotic and badly paced, with no pauses between paragraphs where a moment is needed to shift location or time. I considered giving up but the content was worth enduring it.
