The nation was shocked when the fiend who was finally apprehended turned out to be Dennis Rader - a friendly neighbor...a devoted husband...a helpful Boy Scout dad...the respected president of his church.
Written by four award-winning crime reporters who covered the story for more than 20 years, Bind, Torture, Kill is the most intimate and complete account of the BTK nightmare told by the people who were there from the beginning. With newly released documents, evidence, and information - and with the full cooperation, for the very first time, of the Wichita Police Department's BTK Task Force - the authors have put all the pieces of the grisly puzzle into place, thanks to their unparalleled access to the families of the killer and his victims.
Contains mature themes.

Co-written by a group of local Wichita journalists, this book dutifully documents Dennis Rader’s crimes, along with the 30 year manhunt that led to his eventual capture by dogged WPD detectives. I read a lot of true crime. I’ve read about killers that made me cringe before, but I have to say that this . . .thing in a human body made me sicker and more disgusted than anyone else I’ve read about. I fast forwarded through certain horrible segments, just needing get to the capture. Kudos to he brave men who tracked him down. I’m off true crime for now. Well done, but be warned.

Just That Nerdy Guy Next Door . . .
Scary thought indeed - If it wasn't for his driving need for recognition, he might have very well gotten away with this. Wow. Only through HIS repeated contacts with the newspapers was he finally tracked down - otherwise, he could have just faded into oblivion. Who would have ever suspected him, the dull ordinary church going guy next door? Busy with his job, wife, family, social activities, AND oh, lets squeeze some murders in between all that so I can be home in time for dinner...
I was captivated listening to this. I never knew that much information relating to his crimes, and certainly not all the vivid details of how things evolved and progressed. The stalking, the murders. Neighbors even! Him taunting the police with his cryptic messages left everywhere, leaving them stumped. For years. What a story! Very thoroughly done. Surely this will be a definitive BTK reference resource for true crime enthusiasts. The narrator was fantastic too - three thumbs up :)
