I've read every true crime book ever written. ...OK that's probably not true, but sometimes I feel that way... especially when it comes to Audible! That is why I was so excited by John Leake's excellent tale about the "career" of serial killer, and fascinating sadist Jack Unterweger. He is the Austrian Bundy in every way that matters. The author tells an enthralling and sometimes heart-pounding true crime yarn about a charismatic murderer who manages to gain the support of Austria's MVPs to the point that they petition the government to release him despite his life sentence that for murdering a woman brutally.
So, they let him out and... go figure, he goes on a prostitute-killing rampage. Leaks tells of the fame and fortune Unterweger enjoys as a celebrated author and "reformed man". He has most of them fooled... but there is a dogged investigation that finally gets into his trail.
Another aspect that I loved was learning how different the justice system is in Austria. The fact that the defendant can participate in cross-examination blew my sensible American mind, nevertheless it made for GREAT theatre!
The narrator did a great job with all the European accents and with both male and female voices. As a huge Audiobook fan and even bigger true crime junkie, I absolutely loved this book and I'd highly recommend it to any fan of the genre. Now I have to start looking for my next True Crime mystery! Enjoy!
