Publisher's Summary

John Crutchley seemed to be living the American Dream. Good-looking and blessed with a genius level IQ, he had a prestigious, white-collar job at a prominent government defense contractor, where he held top secret security clearance and handled projects for NASA and the Pentagon. To all outward appearances, he was a hard-working, successful family man with a lavish new house, a devoted wife, and a healthy young son.But, he concealed a hidden side of his personality, a dark secret tied to a hunger for blood and the overriding need to kill. As one of the most prolific serial killers in American history, Crutchley committed at least twelve murders, and possibly nearly three dozen. His IQ elipsed that of Ted Bundy, and his body count may have as well. While he stalked the streets hunting his unsuspecting victims, the residents of a quiet Florida town slept soundly, oblivious to the dark creature in their midst, unaware of the vampire next door.
J.T. Hunter is an attorney with over fourteen years of experience practicing law, including criminal law and appeals, and he has significant training in criminal investigation techniques. He is also a college professor in Florida where his teaching interests focus on the intersection of criminal psychology, law, and literature. This is his debut true crime novel.

Too twisted

What disappointed you about The Vampire Next Door?

I do not like listening to overly detailed accounts of sexual violence. And this book gave play by plays of all graphic details.

What aspect of Rob Shamblin’s performance would you have changed?

Rob Shamlin did a decent job.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Vampire Next Door?

I would cut most of the details on the sexual assaults; I literally felt ill after an hour of this book.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to a lot of true crime, so for me to find the book too graphic takes a lot. I could only listen to about 80 minutes and did not finish the book.

Chilling but good true story!

Enjoyed it very much. I guess the only thing I noticed is it seemed to repeat things a bit much.
