Publisher's Summary

In this riveting true crime book, "The Man Who Loved to Kill Women" - Dayton Leroy Rogers - was known in Portland, Oregon, as a respected businessman and devoted husband and father. But at night he abducted women, forced them into sadistic bondage games, and thrilled in their pain, terror, and mutilation. His murderous spree was stopped only after, in plain view, he slashed to death his final victim...and when a hunter accidentally stumbled onto the burial grounds of seven other women Rogers had killed one-by-one in the depths of the Molalla Forest did police realize they were dealing with a serial killer whose bloodlust knew no bounds. This is the shocking true story of the horrifying crimes, capture, and conviction of Dayton Leroy Rogers, Oregon's mild-mannered businessman by day - vicious serial killer by night.

if you want to know...

If you want to know how to to build a case step by step then this book is for you. its very detailed. and has a ton of info in it. I enjoyed hearing all about this.

I would've given this book 5 stars but:
2 two things bugged me about this book.
The first is his reference to street walkers as " whores" I just think there was a better way to describe them. many terms come to mine besides whore.
The second is. He referred to the serial killer like a "pit bull turning on a child" anyone with half a brain knows that pitbull's are great dogs unless not properly trained. To me it just showed the authors ignorance for not doing his research on the breed.
Now with that out-of-the-way the book was good I'd recommend it if true crime is your genre. It has a lot of detail and knowledge in it.

The narrator was very slow. But nothing that speeding it up to 125 could not fix.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Detailed Presentation Crimes, Investigation &Trials

Would you listen to Blood Lust again? Why?

I would. I am a seasoned True Crime book reader and I might caution that the crimes are reprehensible, and that there are no redeeming factors for murderer Dayton Leroy Rogers. There is some biographical material for Rogers near the beginning of his childhood circumstances, yet they don't mitigate his acts as an adult.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Lust?

Each of the descriptions of the attacks and murders certainly, but what stands out in my mind in hindsight, is his demeanor at the trials.

What does Dan Orders bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I appreciated his spoken pace, it fit the material well, mostly he did a good job with various character voices. Pleasant voice and pronunciations seemed correct.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to a handful of works written by Mr. King. His area of expertise in with the True Crime genre. I have enjoyed all of them including this one!

Thanks for the opportunity to listen and offer my opinions on this work!

A review copy was gifted to me at no charge. In return, I am happy to provide an honest review. Also at no charge.
