The Oldest Man on Death Row. 6 michael bruce ross. The Roadside Strangler. I have interviewed, face to face, some 30 of the world’s most heinous serial killers, spree killers and mass murderers. I have sat with them on death rows throughout the United States, where the stench of cheap disinfectant, human sweat and evil permeates every brick of these correctional cathedrals, the human warehouses that incarcerate those from the legion of the damned. Indeed, books are still being written, and TV documentaries are still produced which dredge up the ‘oldies’ of yesteryear. ses that incarcerate those from the legion of the damned. I have listened to their sickening tales of murder most foul and their boasts of having caused such suffering, which are often beyond the comprehension of normal souls like you and me. These sexual psychopaths love to play mind games and often are as cunning as hyenas.

Having delved into the heads of many of the world's most notorious . Christopher Berry-Dee has also spent hundreds of hours corresponding with those incarcerated for the rest of their days and those on death row awaiting execution.

Having delved into the heads of many of the world's most notorious murderers and published his gripping findings in the bestselling Talking with Serial Killers, for his latest book, renowned crime expert Christopher Berry-Dee has gained the trust of more monsters across the world and entered their prison lairs to discuss in detail their horrific crimes.

Meet grisly killers such as Bill Joe Benefiel, the 'Superglue Monster', who glued his victims eyes and noses shut, causing them to suffocate. Or Willie Crain, the deviant fisherman, who put his victim into a lobster pot, where it was eaten by sea creatures.

Twenty-five of the most horrific murder cases in American crime are brought together in this detailed and haunting compilation. Among the criminals covered are Bill Benefiel, the “Superglue Monster,” who brutally tortured his teenage victims to death; Kenneth Boyd, who killed his wife and her father while his three sons watched; and Veronica and Ivan Gonzalez, who systematically tortured their four-year-old niece over a period of six months before scalding her to death in a bathtub, making them the first married couple on death row. With in-depth accounts of each perpetrator and crime, Dead Men Walking offers a voice of reason in an exhausted debate between politicians, the public, and the press on the line between man and monster, and between justice and murder.

Well, this was a pleasant surprise. And I'll be honest, I didn't expect a lot from this book. However, it was really fascinating! In fact, some of it was downright horrific. The writers covered different cases and people on death row. I didn't find them condescending or judgmental. If there's one thing I hate, it's when a writer sits in judgment or offers their own opinions at the cost of those they're making money off of. I really didn't get this sense with these writers. In fact, I got the impression that they really cared and were equally horrified about the crimes they were writing about. I do wish some of the chapters had been longer, but the good thing is they don't rehash 'old stuff'. Like there's no chapter about Ted Bundy or Aileen Wuornos. The cases they covered were more obscure. Warning, some of the stories are really graphic.

Dead Men Walking: True Stories of the Most Evil Men and Women on Death Row by Christopher Berry-Dee and Tony Brown showed up as a new acquisition by our local library, and I put myself on the hold list for it. As I was reading it yesterday, about halfway through I started asking myself "why?" Not as in "why am I reading this?" (although one could probably make a case for that question also), but "why" as in "why did they write this?"

On the flyleaf, it's stated that this is an examination of the difference between "monster and man", as well as tracing "the often blurry line between justice and murder." If this book was focused on one or two cases, I might have felt like it met that criteria. If you dig deep enough into the life and background of a killer, you can often find the thread that led them to their eventual outcome. But in Dead Men Walking, you get a handful of pages on a number of different killers. In that amount of space, there's plenty of room to go into graphical detail about their crimes and brutality. And Berry-Dee and Brown get those details down quite well. But in many cases, the analysis and insight into the killer's motives tends to be glossed over, in my opinion. A few of the cases go deeper than the others, and in those there's more analysis as to what might have warped the killer along the way. But that felt like it was more the exception than the rule.

"Voyeur" is about the only way I can describe this work. People can be incredibly cruel and sick, doing things that a rational person can't even begin to imagine. To collect a number of stories like these in one place almost borders on being "adult pr0n" for crime. In terms of writing and research, the authors did their job well. But in terms of value and analysis, I still come back to the question of "why?".
