Publisher's Summary

As a child, she was abandoned, abused and raped. By her teens, she was deep into a lifestyle of hitchhiking, petty crime, and the sex trade. In her twisted mind, uncontrollable bouts of violence were pure survival skills.
In 1986 she began a lesbian relationship with Tyria Moore. Three years later, tired of turning tricks, she fired four bullets into one of her clients--then robbed him. She claimed she killed six more victims before authorities finally locked her behind bars.
Award-winning journalist Sue Russell updates her harrowing and definitive real-life thriller with new details of the most famous female serial killer's decade on death row, her execution in 2002--and the lasting impact of her dark deeds. The case that inspired the Academy Award-winning movie Monster.

Exhaustive story. The narrator diminished it.

The book is exhaustive but well written. It spares no detail of Aileen's life from birth to death.

The worst thing overall was the narrator constantly mispronouncing the name of a key character. Anyone who has followed this story knows that Aileen's girlfriends name is Tyria. The narrator called her Tyra through the entire book. In addition she also mispronounced Jack Kavorkian's name.

Not what I was hoping for

I was really looking for something more in the line of documentary and got what reads like a fiction novel. Part of it is the performance I think. Don't get me wrong, Cassandra Campbell performs the reading just fine but doesn't have the gravitas in her voice for this to sound like a gritty true crime novel. Not sure I can adequately explain how this comes off more as a fictional tale than the true crime it is but the way it's written just comes off that way. It's still a decent read just not what I was looking for.

Awful awful writing

Truley terrible writing. Voice over performance is fine, but far too difficult to listen to
