Publisher's Summary

Of all the many psychopaths and sociopaths that have hunted for human victims throughout history, few have been more disturbing or mysterious than Christopher Bernard Wilder - the Beauty Queen Killer. From the middle of the 1960s until 1984, Wilder sexually assaulted countless women and murdered at least nine in Australia and the United States. The Beauty Queen Killer was not only a true psychopath, but also a hunter, as he carefully chose attractive girls and young women to victimize. But Wilder was no creepy looking killer; he was an attractive, articulate man who used a camera and offers of a modelling career to get his unsuspecting, naïve victims to remote locations where he would then rape, torture, and ultimately kill them.
Among serial killer biographies, Wilder's is a cautionary tale. First as a juvenile, and later as a young man, Wilder was arrested on numerous occasions for sexual assaults in both Australia and the United States; but he never served any time behind bars due to technicalities, witnesses refusing to testify, or the judges showing sympathy towards the Beauty Queen Killer. When one considers some of the better known American crime stories from history, many red-flags are apparent that point towards the future criminal potential of an individual. For Wilder, the flags were bright, crimson, quite large, and difficult to avoid, yet were ignored by his friends, family, and the authorities. Christopher Wilder's saga is therefore not just a true crime murder story, but also an unfortunate example of how the system can fail to protect the public from a known sexual sadist.
Begin this intriguing book and hear the story of an American serial killer who had it all: looks, money, and beautiful women. But as this captivating true crime story will reveal, nothing was ever enough for the Beauty Queen Killer as he killed his way across the United States in order to satisfy his sadistic lust.

Such a very scary story

Would you listen to Christopher Wilder: The True Story of The Beauty Queen Killer again? Why?

Yes. I will. Since this true story is such a realization that in this world, criminals are everywhere and can happen anytime and anywhere.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The most compelling aspect of the narrative is how Christopher Wilder managed to do the crimes and i was so disappointed on why he was not caught alive.

What does Herschel J. Grangent, Jr. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

How scary the story in reality and it's really an inhuman act. Just reading the books does not give a better impact rather than listening.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

I was interested on the motives and the root cause on why Wilder did those hilarious crimes.
