Publisher's Summary

When killing cousins David Alan Gore and Fred Waterfield realized as teens that they shared the same sick, twisted sex fantasies of raping helpless, bound women who were completely at their mercy, Florida's quiet Vero Beach would be never be the same.
Some of the least remorseful of all American serial killers, the deadly duo stalked their victims, often hitchhikes they believed would never be missed, using Gore's auxiliary deputy badge as a ruse to lure them into their vehicle. After that, they were most likely to be driven to their deaths.
Their evil, sadistic story from the annals of Florida history is one that will chill even longtime fans of true crime murder, especially after listening to excerpts from the letters Gore wrote from prison, in which he shared deplorable secrets that made him one of the most demented sex criminals of all time.
Gore once told a psychologist that "the devil made me do it", but those who came in contact with Gore - including the law enforcement officials that ultimately put him on Death Row - believed he was the devil due to his depraved levels of cruelty.
Among the psychopaths and sociopaths that have walked the Earth, Gore was one of the worst, although those who knew them say that it was Fred Waterfield, the more popular cousin who always played the good guy to Gore's bad, who was the true brains of the outfit. As it happens, he probably was, because Waterfield almost got away with murder.

A Bit Boring

It was very hard to get into this book. I did not find that it was written very well and was a little all over the place. The narrator did not help with his slow monotone voice.

Wish These Creeps Were Fictional

Would you try another book from Jack Rosewood and/or Miles Taylor?


Any additional comments?

I couldn’t remember ever hearing of David Alan Gore or Fred Waterfield before listening to this book, perhaps because I was either not born or very young during their killing spree. These two were as sick and twisted as they come, there wasn’t a great deal of detail on their youth and early signs of psychopathy, we briefly hear about their deviant/sadistic fantasies as early teenagers and that’s about it.

If you like true crime I think you’d enjoy this book, it’s worth a listen. The narration is decent, there is one spot where the narrator repeats a line, but I don’t remember any additional editing issues.

**I received this book for free, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review from AudioBook blast**
