Book Summary

Bizarre, compelling, terrifying and authentic true crime stories of murder and mayhem.

 In these pages you will find details of 18 chilling crimes that could only be perpetrated by the twisted minds and gruesome obsessions of coldblooded killers, the stuff that horror movies and novels are made of, brought to you from the vault of bestselling true crime author and serial killer expert Gary C. King. There are true stories of love affairs gone wrong, sex slayings, despicable child murders--including one who would be considered a serial killer by today's revised FBI standards, mass murders, and one about a killer who went so far as to impersonate his victim. 

These are terrifying, heart-pounding yet mostly obscure true crime stories guaranteed to keep you awake at night and your doors locked, each written with the true crime aficionado in mind!

My Thoughts

Murder Most Foul is a fabulous and diverse collection of crime stories. Even though the accounts are brief, each one is packed full of detail and sufficiently explained so that they inform and engage just as well as a longer account would. The proficiency and experience of this author certainly sheds light on why I compulsively read this book through the night. This author is a master of his craft. 

One thing that dawned on me while reading this book...there are way more serial killers out there than we think. The behaviour of some of the people committing single murders is more akin to the serial killers we read about. Some killers are just caught before they get a chance to become full blown serial murderers. 

Highly recommend this collection and will absolutely be seeking out more Gary C. King to read!
