It was refreshing in a very disturbing 'I'm going to lock all my doors and windows and never leave my house from now on' sort of way to read an anthology of Australian serial killers. I've read books about U.S serial killers (and lets be honest there are alot of those floating around) but only 1 decent book about home-grown Aussie socio-paths.

As someone who enjoys true crime, i really enjoyed this book.
Some cases are much more intriguing than others but overall it gives you a well rounded look at prolific killers in Australia through the years.
It was also very interesting to read about the writers dynamic, almost friendship with one of the killers.

A book filled with short details of some of Australia's serial killers, dating way back to early records of crime in Australia. I found it to be an interesting book, but at the same time, I felt that it was a little brief. Nevertheless, I found it reasonably easy to follow and fascinating enough to get me through the book.

This is an interesting read and not at all as gruesome as the title suggests. The murderers are varied in circumstances and personalities. This is quite contradictory to deranged loners of Hollywood's serial killer films.

Real life is indeed stranger than fiction.

this was a disturbing yet fascinating book to read, it opened my eyes to a world we all know exists but one we normally don't concentrate on. i had to stop three quarters of the way through to read something lighter but it didn't take long before it drew me back in. well worth reading
