Insightful and detailed read clearly depicting the emotional shallowness and one dimensional nature of a true psychopath...and Olson was a true psychopath. Well written, numerous typos aside, although the concluding chapter would benefit greatly from a re-write. That said, I couldn't put the book down.

HASH(0x917d5de0) out of 5 stars One of the best True Crime books I've read 13 Dec. 2012
By J. M. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I must start this by saying that I knew Clifford and really didn't have much interest in reading about him. I also knew he used to ramble on about knowing Peter Worthington and even had me call him with Clifford on the phone. I thought it was interesting Worthington wrote a book about Clifford Olson and that's really the reason I picked it up, not because of the subject, but that I knew that these two people had been in communication for a long time and I wanted to hear his take. I was not disappointed--Worthington leaves nothing behind and this is the only book that I've found and really, the only mention at all that goes into detail about Olson's horrendous crimes. Most people are aware of Olson being a child predator and child killer, but that's it. Olson never had to go through a trial and a lot of the details of his crimes have remained swept under the rug. Worthington gives us a detailed description of each of Olson's victims, how he would lure them, the small talk that they had and how he would murder them. Of course, Worthington has some biographical information on Olson, such as how he grew up and his life leading up to his life in prison. There was a lot of interesting things mentioned that I wasn't aware of.

I can't praise Worthington enough for his hard work and dedication. Never before has there been a more suitable title for a book. Clifford Olson was truly the worst kind of Predator imaginable.

What a great book. From the first to the very last page I was spellbound. P. Worthington is a great writer when it comes to True Crime being exposed and retold.I hope he has more on the go and cant wait to read his next book.5 stars from me ***** A must for a crime enthusiast.

HASH(0x8f285f9c) out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected 25 Dec. 2012
By J. A. Tebbs - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When I finished this book, I felt strangely dissatisfied without been able to put my finger on why. i was probably expecting a deeper insight into this why this person did what they did. There were descriptions of his crimes - which are horrific - but I was looking for more of an explanation, an insight, a study perhaps? In saying that, this book is definitely readable.

HASH(0x917d8228) out of 5 stars Unconscionable 14 Dec. 2012
By Love To Read - Published on Amazon.com

I do believe that this book shows Clifford Olson to be no less skillfull than Ted Bundy when it comes to the art of choosing a victim. Where Olson does fall short though, is in his varied experimental ways of going about the business of murdering his victims. He thinks himself an innovator, a connoisseur of method, while in truth he is a barbaric cruel bumpkin. Mr. Worthington does a great job tracing Clifford Olson through the mire that is his life.

HASH(0x917d83d8) out of 5 stars Not bad 27 April 2013
By S. Turner - Published on Amazon.com

Thought the writting was good but took a while to get to the interesting part of the story. Much of the 1st half is about him going in and out of jail for petty crimes. I know the book is Titled "life and crimes" but lets face it you buy the book to read about the serial killings. The book gets to that but does not go in much detail of how he becomes a suspect. We also learn that he uses the same ruse and the author goes over it too many times. Overall it is a nice read about someone I had never heard of so the whole story was new to me. I doubt he was mentally ill just an evil con man that got his just dues in the end.
