Critic Reviews

"R. J. Parker writes the most informative and interesting books, hands down. Unsolved even gave me true crime I didn't already know about. Didn't think that was possible! This author rocks!" (Lori Smith)
" Women Who Kill is an interesting and eclectic dossier on some of the nastiest female murderers ever. He has researched well and presented the reader with a collection of the more unusual and bizarre femme fatales than one usually finds in similar True Crime compilations." (William Cook)
"This book is very emotional and brilliantly written! The author brings the crimes alive in detail and in a tearful read of the reality of everyday bullying! Once you start reading this book of horrors yet saddening, not only for the victims but the killers themselves, you wont want to put it down. 5 stars to R. J. Parker for having the words and courage he brings to the pages." (K.L. Rotunno)

Arrgghh! I didn't read the reviews!!!

Would you try another book from RJ Parker and/or Beth MacEwan?

No. I do not know which was worse, the writing or the narration.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Beth MacEwan?

My six year old granddaughter reads more naturally. I wish I could have given the performance 0 stars.

Any additional comments?

ALWAYS READ THE REVIEWS!

Big Disappointment

Would you try another book from RJ Parker and/or Beth MacEwan?

Not in my lifetime will I get another book done by Beth MacEwan.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Beth MacEwan?

Scott Brick, Bill Dufris, Grover Gardner. Anyone but MacEwan

What character would you cut from The Serial Killer Compendium, Volume 1?

N/A

Any additional comments?

The reader sounds like she's giving a lecture to third graders. Very cold and unpleasant diction with no personality at all. If I could I would like to return this download for a credit.

reader is poor

What did you like best about this story?

the facts were interesting

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She was AWFUL, Stuttering, messing up words long pauses. R J Parker has other books that are narrated by a man who reads smoothly and easily. Listening to this woman in as much effort as she had recording!

Any additional comments?

I would by the separate books that are in this one! narration is much better!

wanting to bash my own head in

Would you try another book written by RJ Parker or narrated by Beth MacEwan?

the problem with this audio is not the auther or the stories but the narrator. She seems to speak in slow motion which eventually led me to stop listening
