    I had no idea the book was so short when I bought it and I had it read in less than an hour. The details of Black's depravity are a fascinating read but there is not enough depth to the book especially the unsolved murders that Black was linked to. The scary thing about Robert Black for me is that he is known to have been in the area where two girls vanished back around 1982 very close to where I live. The thought that I could have been passed by this evil man in his van completely freaks me out. I had no idea the book was so short when I bought it and I had it read in less than an hour.

One of my neighbours knew one of the girls who vanished which is why I've always been interested in his crimes. The evil scumbag died in January 2016 and may he rot in hell.

    An interesting read Very good read but I'm am sure he was implicated in more murders obviously there wasn't enough evidence for it to be concrete enough for this book but still a very interesting insight into the man and his crimes An interesting read Very good read but I'm am sure he was implicated in more murders obviously there wasn't enough evidence for it to be concrete enough for this book but still a very interesting insight into the man and his crimes

    Another GREAT READ!! Author C.L Swinney did a great job in telling the story of Robert Black. He covered Blacks life from birth through his convictions for the murders of several young girls. The book was factual without getting bogged down in the legal detail of the trials like some books do, making it easy to read in that sense. However, reading what Robert Black did to his young victims was not so easy!!

    This book is an excellent read!! If you love true crime than this is a book for you!!! I love how it starts out with the childhood history of Robert. He seemed very evil from a very young age. Are these kinds of men born like this or do the (horrible) circumstances of their life make them this way? Robert is a very wicked and sick man and I hope he never gets out of prison for the sake of other young girls.

    This was a very short and fast account of a child rapist and serial killer who should never have been allowed to roam the streets. There were so many warning signs and arrests that there really is no excuse for what happened. It is well written but I wish that there had been a bit more background on the victims, the time period and more detail on the culprit.

    Fell short Quick read. Expected more. Such sad stories and I feel so deeply for these families. I feel like the beginning set you up for real answers to this demented mind and it fell short. Kept waiting for the part where police received information from the killer only to find out not only do we not get answers but he was found guilty on circumstantial evidence. Disappointed.

    Interesting story , written poorly The author's poor writing, grammar, and storytelling ability detract from this interesting subject. The sentence structures are in need of refinement.

    True murder Short concise book about Robert Black. It took place in England by this book was better written than a lot of books by English authors that I have read recently have been written.

    Well written I gave it three stars cause he made excuses for Roberts deeds. I give no excuse for murdering little children.

    I think this was amazingly written. But it was disgusting to know it was a true story and not fiction. It made me feel sorry for the families of the victim's in which Robert Black was found guilty in and of the victim's families who still have not found their beloved girls. I really hope (since he is still alive) that he confesses to his doings, so that the families get some form of closure ... However, overall the book is simply top quality written in my opinion as for me it's really hard to fin I think this was amazingly written.

    Disappointing read I downloaded this book after reading the reviews. It didn't take long to read and I felt like I was being rushed along. There is no great depth to the writing of this book and have to disagree with other reviewers that it is well written. There is a massive amount of information surrounding these crimes and I feel as though the author has written a quick summary of events. Sorry but not recommended.

    Informational and Interesting Read I enjoyed this book. I had never heard of Robert Black. What horrible events took place at the hands of this man! He had a horrible childhood, which no doubt had an impact on his behaviors. He favored young girls. He carried on his acts of abuse for years before he was finally caught. The author has a writing style that is easy to follow--it flows well. The book has a few grammatical errors. I definitely recommend reading this book.

    Fascinating and sad. I chose 5 stars because I'm happy with how hard all those officers, and locals, witnesses, and families worked. Such a staggering amount of information they gathered and they never gave up. My heart aches for those children and the families. I do hope that Robert comes out and admits to the murders. The families deserve more closure. Fascinating and sad. I chose 5 stars because I'm happy with how hard all those officers, and locals, witnesses, and families worked.

    Interesting Interesting read good information and detective work the story reins true to similar demeanor of characteristics of individuals whom prey on the young...a sick minded individual that had a rough beginning starting out and just never able to get on the right track so sadden to read the tragic stories of the victims families

    Informative I thought this book was well written. The first pre-chapter, if you will, is a bit confusing, though after the first actual chapter it ironed out and became engrossing. I wish there was more info on his life growing up, though. I always seem to crave more knowledge about the earlier years of the perpetrators!

    Karen Bullock

    Informative Only 4 stars this time as it seemed that towards the end, there were several repeated pages of information, just organized differently. Robert Black is a disturbing individual who should have been held accountable the first time he attacked a child. Had that happened, there might have been less broken hearted families.

    The true story of a child rapist and serial killer in England. A short, but chilling account of the children Robert Black killed and the hunt for the killer. Hard to even imagine that there are people like this.

    This book gave a bit of insight into Robert Black, and some information about the crimes and victims. I would have been good to get more information about the investigation and the individuals involved. For a short book, it was very well done.

    Great read. Robert Black was a sick person who loved to prey on young girls. This had to be hard for the author to write. At times it was bothersome for me to read but I think it was well written. My heart goes out to the families who were affected. I'm glad this sick pervert was put away Great read.

    Very eye opening. It was good book. I like the details of the killer how he lived and the horrible life he had . It's very heart breaking to know someone could do such things to children. I'm glad he is in jail. Very eye opening. It was good book. I like the details of the killer how he lived and the horrible life he had .

    Apparently if you want to get away with murder (or receive a ridiculously small sentence) go overseas.

    Decently written. Book was good. I would have liked them not.to include cases that were irrelevant to Mr. Black. But over all good book.

    Although the content was sad to read, it was well written with pictures of the victims. It is not safe for children to go anywhere by themselves even if we feel like we live in a safe neighborhood.
