Colombian Killers explores the stories of three men who have forever tainted the lush fields of Latin America. This book narrates the sadistic acts of serial killers Luis Alfredo Garavito, Pedro Alonzo Lopez, and Daniel Camargo Barbosa.
For these men, rape and murder were but the beginning of the horrors they inflicted upon the world. The fear their crimes inspire is not about their nature, the methodology, or even the victims. It is about who the killers themselves are.
These men were motivated by perhaps the most chilling trifecta - sex, power and revenge.
This book begins with three parts, each dedicated to one of these three monsters of modern-day Colombia. Once you've been edified with the general knowledge of the atrocities, we will delve further into the tiny details, the forgotten horrors, the thousands of ways that we as a society failed these men and, in so doing, shaped them into be the monsters they are known as today.
Luis Alfredo Garavito, Pedro Alonzo Lopez, and Daniel Camargo Barbosa are among the most prolific serial killers in the world. Between them, they were convicted of 329 murders, but it's believed that the number they committed is over 750.
Colombian Killers is not for the faint of heart, nor for the feeble of spirit. Be very sure you want to know what you are about to hear, because if you can be sure of nothing else, be sure of this: You will never forget what you are about to hear.

Colombian True Crime
This book looks at three brutal cases that are probably not known to you if you are in the English speaking world. I tend to like true crime books that go into a lot of detail, so of course three stories that are covered in an hour and forty five minutes are going to have less depth. Knowing that, I enjoyed the stories anyway. It's always interesting to hear about crimes that have been committed in foreign countries and how their judicial system differs from the one in my home country. These were some bad dudes; if you are sensitive to child abuse, I'd steer clear of this one!
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
