An Unparalleled Beast

The Bundy Murders: A Comprehensive History is aptly titled, because it is very comprehensive, detailing crimes that I knew very little about. Throughout the book the author is respectful to the victim's memories; and describes them as three dimensional human beings with hopes, dreams, aspirations and loving families, and that makes their fates at Bundy's hands all the more repugnant. As horrific as Bundy's predations on his victims were, the author also describes the devastating impact of these crimes on the victim's families. In this context, Bundy is revealed to be the unparalleled beast that he was. I believe this book has a clearer and more complete account of the Utah/Colorado murders than what I had read before. Particularly the details surrounding the murder of Debbie Kent, where Bundy stalked victims in a crowded theater auditorium. The author describes Bundy's mind-set and psychopathic descent extremely well, and the gradual decay of his ability to control the beast within behind a mask of normalcy, a mask that ultimately crumbled. Kevin Pierce's excellent narration puts me right there, and brings the horror vividly to life. And with a special sensitivity, he captures the anguish of the families left behind. It is a brilliant true crime book.

A REAL Monster

I have read many books and articles on Ted Bundy but in this work learned so much more about the man. He was just pure evil~absolutely NO redeeming qualities. We will never know for sure how many women he murdered or how many barely escaped his depravity. Very interesting listen, great narration, and highly recommended for those interested in true crime.

Audiobook provided for an honest review.
