Publisher's Summary

By day, Robert Lee Yates, Jr., was a respected father of five, a skilled helicopter pilot who served in Desert Storm and the National Guard, and a man no one suspected of a deadly hidden life. By night he prowled the streets where prostitutes gathered, gaining their trust before betraying them with a bullet to the head.
On August 26, 1997, the decomposed bodies of two young women were discovered in Spokane, Washington. Within months, four more women were added to the mounting death toll.
In 2000, Yates pleaded guilty to 13 murders to avoid the death penalty. But in 2001, he was convicted of two more murders and is now on death row in Washington State, waiting for the day when he will die by lethal injection.
Updated with the latest disturbing developments, award winning author Burl Barer's real-life thriller is a shocking portrait of one man's depravity.

Got lost in the story several times

I got easily lost several times and lost interest. Maybe its because I'm not a fan of the narrator.

Not so interesting....

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I would say that it was worth the listen but this book didn't work for me. I felt like the story had been told in segments and I had to replay many of the chapters as I began to get confused and frankly bored.

What other book might you compare Body Count to and why?

This wasn't a favorite of mine but it was the bottom of the barrel.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul McClain?

No, probably not. His cadence and voice in general didn't meet with satisfaction.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?
