I’ve read/reviewed practically all of the books Jack Rosewood has written so far in his collection of books of serial killers we’ve had in this country and I’ve found each one to be an interesting and informative reading experience reading the deprived and diabolic individuals which have existed here in the US. And if you couldn’t imagine that the fairer sex would have able been capable of committing not one, not two, but a series of heinous murders; he’s made sure to include one.

This author has now decided to set his sight internationally in order to illustrate that these maniacal individuals exist in the rest of the “civilized” world and has chosen to begin with three of the most infamous individual who all came from Colombia and who Mr. Rosewood has correctly described as being monsters due to what they’ve done to their victims, essentially all of them being children, as well as their sheer numbers: Luis Garavito, Daniel Camargo Barbosa, and Pedro Lopez.

Just read what the author wrote in the introduction to this book:

“…The three men who have set records for their kills each targeted children, using various tricks to lure them away from safety, including candy, money, and various disguises. And while it is unfathomable that together these three men are believed to be responsible for the deaths of more than 500 children, what is even more impossible to believe is that the punishments in no way fit their crimes…

…Each is the stuff of nightmares, and while Garavito is still behind bars and Barbosa is dead at the hands of a fellow prisoner, Lopez is free, his whereabouts unknown, making him a likely subject of many a horror story told ‘round a campfire…”

The stories of these three might be able to turn the stomachs of some readers who consider themselves psychologically strong enough to handle what I feel are extremely gory details of their actions.

As in the rest of the book he’s written, the author has included information of the childhood background of his subjects which could have set the stage for their actions.

For having taken the time to collection the information needed to write this book, and for presenting it in an enjoyable reading manner I’m giving this book 5 STARS.

The best things in life are free, which is why I consider myself fortunate to have once again won a mobi.file copy of this book through a giveaway the author had on LibraryThing. The above as always has been my honest opinion.
