Publisher's Summary

Joel Rifkin trolled the streets on Manhattan and Long Island under the cover of night searching for a way to ease the intense urges he couldn’t deny. Prostitutes were his targets, and although he allowed some to live, there were many who were much less fortunate.
 
Dismembered bodies were soon discovered, but nobody could identify who was responsible for such despicable acts of murder and horror. Until one night when Rifkin was disposing of his 17th victim, he was finally caught.
 
One of the most famous serial killers, Rifkin has shared some of his thoughts and feelings about the crimes he committed, yet he still questions why he felt the way he did. He is perhaps one of the most interesting American serial killers to date, and his true crime stories are among the most disturbing.
 
There have been few New York murders committed by serial killers, including Rifkin and the Long Island Serial Killer. Rifkin was considered a suspect in the case of the Long Island Serial Killer, and this true crime audio discusses his opinions on who the killer could actually be.
 
If you are passionate about true crime serial killers, then you will absolutely enjoy this audiobook. Of all the serial killer audiobooks out there, this one delves into the controversy surrounding the death penalty and discusses whether monsters like Rifkin should be executed or allowed to live their days out in prison when they stripped that opportunity from the innocent victims they slayed.

This book is a total waste of time. It is a totally amateur attempt at true crime. Badly written and badly narrated.

Joel's story and a lot of serial killer info

This was more an overall serial killer book than a book specific to Joel Rifkin. It is more info about serial killer research than it is about this killer and his victims. If you want to know who Joel Rifkin killed and how, you can get that in the first couple chapters. If you want to learn about serial killer research in general then you can listen to the rest of the book. For those who have a great interest in serial killers and profiling, you are probably familiar with much of the information. Joel Rifkin's story should have just been included in another book on serial killers instead of adding all the fluff to this book and calling it his true story. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Not sure



It wasnt quite what I was expecting but think that is probably my fault for not reading the synopsis properly.

I was expecting to listen to Joel Rifkin's story, but very little of this book is actually about his story, and is more about serial killers.

I will go back and give this book another listen now that I know what to expect, but do feel that the title is misleading

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review

What a photograph!!!

The authors of this book are amazing, it was written so good that I could picture everything in my mind, they really managed to write pictures in words, truly amazing.

I believe the picture is clear: while a child mine is developing and Re wiring itself is when the decision who he will be gets created, at that period intervention could save many souls, once the process is over and the mind no longer grows there is no way to undo the mess!
The problem is how to reach those minds in time?
Beautifully written !
Excellent narration !
This book is Recommended.
