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.

This story is very interesting as it follows how the serial killers met, searched for their prey, and were finally caught. Unlike other books so far, this book has the transcripts from an audio file of one of the murders as well as an interview with one of the killers. Definately a great read!
