Bind, Torture, Kill Roy Wenzl, Tim Potter, Hurst Laviana & L. Kelly read online review & book description:

For thirty-one years, a monster terrorized the residents of Wichita, Kansas. A bloodthirsty serial killer, self-named "BTK"—for "bind them, torture them, kill them"—he slaughtered men, women, and children alike, eluding the police for decades while bragging of his grisly exploits to the media. The nation was shocked when the fiend who was finally apprehended turned out to be Dennis Rader—a friendly neighbor . . . a devoted husband . . . a helpful Boy Scout dad . . . the respected president of his church.

Written by four award-winning crime reporters who covered the story for more than twenty years, Bind, Torture, Kill is the most intimate and complete account of the BTK nightmare told by the people who were there from the beginning. With newly released documents, evidence, and information—and with the full cooperation, for the very first time, of the Wichita Police Department’s BTK Task Force—the authors have put all the pieces of the grisly puzzle into place, thanks to their unparalleled access to the families of the killer and his victims.

    Read this book if you are interested in the case from the perspective of law enforcement or the local media. I found it fascinating, but I have a background in journalism and criminal law.

    This book was very absorbing. There was so much detail involved with this case. The detectives in the case were under extreme stress throughout the investigation; it’s a wonder any of them didn’t crack up. It didn’t say but did anyone get divorced. And when they had the culprit they still stayed focused, always making sure to not jeopardize the legal part.

    This is by far the best book I have read on the subject. The authors did a great job fleshing out the characters. So easy to read, and the account flowed so well. This is really the only book you need to read to about the BTK murders and investigation in order to get a handle on the case.

    This is a well written book that documents the behind the scenes of law enforcement and the press. The book is remarkably fast moving and hold the reader with an intense fascination to keep turning pages. I highy recommend this book to anyone who wishes to enhance their knowledge and appreciation for the people involved in bringing these perps to justice.

    Hard to put down. Great read although some things in the book seem unnecessary and can be confusing. Other than that, I like how the story focuses on how they captured the killer, n does not glorify all of the terrible things he did. Would like to read more like this with other serial killers.

    A lot of the quotes to and from characters could have been left out, most of the quotes didn't even make sense.

    I have never read a book quite like this one. I never knew the BTK killer was a real person before I read this book. Purchased it because it was $3.99 and it has come to be one of the best books I have ever read. No matter the price: READ THIS BOOK -21 year old psychology student

    True crime is fascinating when well written, and I found this especially so because I live in Wichita and followed this story from the first murder. BTK was the big, unsolved mystery for years. How fascinating when a local author decided to write a history (not this book) a long time after the killings had stopped (we thought), and the ego of Dennis Rader would not let him stay silent any longer. This book details the story from both the media and the law enforcement point of view: the beginning, what was going on when everyone thought BTK was dead or gone, and the final resolution of the case. A very interesting read.

    Fascinating. The guy got away with murders. His ego would not let him be and he basically caught himself. The devil
