Summary

From R. Barri Flowers, award winning criminologist and international best-selling author of The Sex Slave Murders 1 & 2 and Murder at the Pencil Factory, comes a riveting, new true crime short, Dead at the Saddleworth Moor: The Crimes of Serial Killers Ian Brady & Myra Hindley.

In this frightening tale of dark fantasies, pornography, rape, and murder, British serial killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley targeted children in the early 1960s - killing five and burying most of them in the Saddleworth Moor in Northern England - before being brought to justice.

Included as a bonus is a complete true crime short, The Sunset Strip Killers, about serial killers Douglas Clark and Carol Mary Bundy, who targeted runaways and prostitutes in Hollywood, California in 1980 for rape, torture, murder, and necrophilia.

An added bonus is an excerpt from R. Barri Flowers bestselling true crime short, The Pickaxe Killers, the unnerving tale of double murderers Karla Faye Tucker and Daniel Garrett, and the resulting national debate on the death penalty.

A good book let down by narration

Interesting stories, shame about the narrator. I did this book in one sitting as I knew I wouldn't go back to it even though I was intrigued by the subject.

Way too short

Although the details were enough to cover the basics of the case, you could learn a lot more from a much longer book. The very short article on the Moors killings is padded even further with stories on completely different cases. This is deceptive on behalf of the publisher. If they were honest about how short the story really is, listeners wouldn't be interested. I find the Moors case fascinating, but Flowers doesn't provide nearly enough for serious, in-depth learning about the case. Oh, and the name is R. Barri Flowers, not just Barri. This story deserved a much better audiobook production.

Absolutely awful

The author manages to make the subject boring and uninteresting, which in itself is quite a feat. I
