From the cells of Death Row come the chilling, true-life accounts of the most heinous, cruel and depraved killers of modern times. 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.
Many prisoners on ' the Row' have carried out serial murder, mass murder, spree killing and the desmemberment of bodies - both dead and alive. In these pages are to be found friends who have stabbed, hacked and ever filleted their victims. So meet the 'Dead Men and Women Walking' from the legion of the damned in the most terrifying true crime read ever.

Laughable
Given my personal familiarity with one of the cases within this book I was curious to read it. Having done so I find it quite absurd to the point of being comical. The inaccuracies
abound. One line speaks of said inmate's birth date being 1973, the next line gives the year of the crime 1991, and then the book goes on to describe him as 20 years old at the time of the crime. Simple maths even seems an issue in this book. 1991 minus 1973 equals 18 not 20. This is just the first of half a dozen inaccuracies within a several line account of one inmate's details. Where on earth are the writers gaining their "information" from? Are they just plucking random facts out of the sky and making up the rest? And what is the point of a book that has no more fact than one could dream up themselves?
Save your money - if you want to learn about the so called "monsters" in this book a simple google is cheaper and way more accurate.
