It’s an absolute honour today to be sharing my review of Ted Bundy: The Only Living Witness by Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth as part of the blog tour. Many thanks to Mel at Mirror Books for the invite and a copy of the book.
About the book
Charismatic. Articulate. Evil. Killer.
Two journalists with unprecedented direct access speak to Ted Bundy and those closest to him – friends and family.
What follows is a candid and chilling full account of the life and crimes of the most notorious serial killer in history.
What Bundy had to say in over 150 hours of face-to-face interviews is as relevant today as it was at the time.
Ted Bundy: The Only Living Witness is available to purchase now – Amazon
Stephan G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth spent hours upon hours interviewing Ted Bundy and after reading their previous book Conversations with a Killer last year and really enjoying it I was looking forward to finding out more about Ted Bundy.
I feel quite strange saying this but I am absolutely fascinated by this man, I mean I don’t like him, I detest him but I’ve wanted to know what made this man commit these brutal, absolutely vile murders. I mean what makes a person take another’s life the way he did? And so many.
Throughout this book we find out so much about Ted and one of the things that shocks me is the amount of people that couldn’t believe he was capable of his crimes, they just didn’t see it, Theodore Robert Bundy was a normal guy in their eyes. And even after he’d been sentenced there was one woman, Carole Boone who actually married Bundy.
But really what lay beneath, could things have panned out differently if his mental state had been picked up earlier or if the police had worked closer together? There’s so many questions but the main one in my mind is, would it have made any difference?
This book is shocking, it will fill you with a range of emotions including sadness, disgust, fear and anger just to name a few. Ted Bundy is a man that would give any woman nightmares, I’ve had a few since reading this book but still I’m fascinated.
This isn’t a book that I can say I enjoyed, I’d probably be locked up if I did say that but it had me totally gripped and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. It made my skin crawl at times but it was engrossing and Ted Bundy is someone that will be talked about for many many years to come, his crimes were so horrific that he’s a serial killer that won’t be forgotten easily.
