Publisher's Summary

Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris, the Toolbox Killers, brought a level of terror that changed the way people carried out their daily lives. It was a time of innocence in California, where young girls could walk the streets or hitchhike along the freeways without a care or concern for their own safety, day or night. But that innocence and trust were to be shattered as five girls made the fatal mistake of accepting a ride from Bittaker and Norris.
What started as a chance meeting in prison of these terrible men resulted in a murder spree that was planned right down to the finest details. They knew the type of victims they wanted, how they were going to abduct them, and what they were going to do to them. And they did everything they could to make their depraved fantasies come true.
This true crime book includes chapters that explore the psychological make-up of these killers, and factors that may have influenced their twisted minds. How could these men inflict such horrific pain and suffering on their victims, and get away with it until five victims are left dead and scattered in a desolate canyon? What would have happened if Bittaker and Norris had never met?
These famous serial killers were organized and sexually sadistic, and were responsible for some of the most horrendous true murders involving unimaginable torture in history. This is one of those true crime stories that will make you question humanity, and look twice at those who live among us.

Toolbox - Two For One . . .

Eeeeeyaaaa! The crimes of this deadly duo (Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris), surely have to be considered one of THE most cruel sadistic killings. Ever. I will be the first to admit, that although I do NOT condone these deeds, when reading it as a story and disconnected to the realness of their actions - I DO want ALL the details. Lots. And boy oh boy did this one deliver the goods in that department. My jaw dropped, and I did MUCH cringing and wincing.

I never knew the particulars of this murderous pair, and as I listened, I would often back it up so that a particular part could be repeated to confirm what I thought I just heard - WAIT a minute, WHAAAT???!!!!! As the book title implies - they certainly DID make use of items from the toolbox to inflict horror and pain on their victims. Wow. Unnh.

The latter part of this book - and perhaps a better chunk of it, is heavy on psychology, factoids, stats and comparisons regarding MANY serial killers. This section could have easily been its own stand alone book, and not necessarily combined into this one. Personally, I do not have much interest in those aspects. But for crime junkies ....its probably perfect.

I have recieved this audiobook in exchange for my honest review, and I will tell you that I WILL re-listen to this just to be horrified all over again. Might save the rest though for another time.

Exactly as you would think

Where does The Toolbox Killers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks in the top 10

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Toolbox Killers?

just listening to the horrific things that were done to those poor women

What does Kevin Kollins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like his voice. He reads well although I believe he mispronounced a couple things. Did not effect the story at all.

Any additional comments?

I was given this book for free to provide an honest and unbiased review.
