Written in a very similar style as SON (also by Olsen), this one follows the descent of psychopath/narcissist George Russell - from a smooth young petty thief - to a full blown sadistic serial murderer.
As the title implies, George was INDEED very charming... Charming enough to fool the pants off EVERYONE, including his friends, family, lovers, and the whole planet it seems. Even his long time police buddies. No one would, or could, EVER accuse George of anything. He was soooo nice, polite, friendly, and helpful...no way. It was all too easy for George to manipulate those around him, as the lies rolled off his tongue with little effort.
The book is sprinkled with humorous details that will have you chuckling quite often, despite the seriousness of the crimes. Personally, I enjoyed that. It makes it feel more a bit more real and genuine in the telling of day to day incidents, as related by ordinary people.
Kevin Pierce's narration is (as always) THEEE icing on the cake here! He truly makes this come alive as if you two were just neighbors hanging out on the porch, and he was telling you the WHOLE story of that awful thing that happened in town. His delivery of each characters thoughts and statements were spot on to their respective personalities, and exactly how I imagined they would be.
Loved it! This book is surely going to be ANOTHER big Olsen-Pierce hit within the true crime genre. I will listen to this one again. Yep.

Jack Olsen is the master of writing true crime books. Kevin Pierce is the master of reading them. These two talents tell true stories that are detailed and easy to follow. You will not be disappointed if you enjoy true crime.
