Ted Bundy, The Only Living Witness
Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth
‘One of the 10 best true crime books ever written’ NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
‘This is the most complete self-portrait ever painted by a serial killer… as unique a document as Bundy was a killer. There are lessons in this book for everyone’ ROY HAZELWOOD, FORMER FBI PROFILER
Intelligent. 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.
In April last year, I read and reviewed Ted Bundy, Conversations With A Killer also by Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth and found it fascinating. So, you can imagine how excited I was to get the chance to read the author’s new book about Ted Bundy called The Only Living Witness.
A quote from the Foreword states “Although Bundy never actually confessed to Michaud and Aynesworth he did reveal to them what is probably the most complete self-portrait ever painted by a serial killer”
This book delves deep into the personality of someone who was at one time described as a ‘normal’ man. There are interviews from people who actually knew Bundy…his friends, family, and witnesses, all meticulously recorded by the two journalists who wrote the book.
The authors have balanced the book extremely well, giving graphic details but not over dramatising these atrocious crimes. At times you forget that this is actually true crime and many, many people’s lives have been destroyed by this sinister criminal.
Having watched the Netflix documentaries I felt I knew quite a lot about Ted Bundy. However, there is much more to learn in this book. It is well written, meticulously researched and gives a balanced, honest and thorough account of Bundy’s life.
Highly recommended for lovers of true crime.
Thank you to Mel from Mirror Books for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
