Ted Bundy's Murderous Mysteries: The Many Victims Of America's Most Infamous Serial Killer is an interesting read. I learned more about the victims of Ted Bundy. I give this book four and a half stars.

The third book in a series on the ted bundy murders, I havent read the first two but did find this one interesting, though hard to read at times due to the subject matter.

This book is an amazing collection of first-hand accounts and picking records concerning Ted Bundy's infamous murders. Those who are very familiar with the case will find this book especially fascinating. Reading accounts made in real-time with the murders gives an interesting view of the mindset of the day. For those that are not as familiar with the case, you may want to start with the two books by the same author that came before this one as it really does close out the trilogy of information. 

Thank you to NetGalley for my copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I am fascinated with serial killers such as Ted Bundy but this book really did not meet my expectations.  I feel that I should have read the other books on Bundy by Sullivan and that would have helped.  There was much on the factual side, such as case notes and interview notes but they seemed randomly put together.  The notes from the police files really revealed just how poorly investigations were4 handled in some areas.  Although I realize that these murders happened a long time ago and DNA evidence was not used then, the shoddy police work just jumps out at you.  It is also amazing that Bundy was allowed to escape by jumping out of a window in a courthouse.  I will go and read the other books by Keith Sullivan to see if my mind changes.

The book contains case files, supported by additional information provided by the author. I found it so interesting to read the case files and to feel like I'm investigating along with the detectives. The author did a good job in explaining certain interviews and documents to make the files clear.

What surprised me most about everything, is how Bundy managed to commit all these murders and get away with them for so long. The things he did to all those women is absolutely terrible and if I were a student around that time, I wouldn't dare to close my eyes at night. 

For people who are interested in True Crime I would recommend this book. The author created a series, of which this is the third book. I don't know what the first two are like, but if they are similar to this one It would be worth checking them out. Although this is the third book in the series, I don't feel like I've missed a lot by not having read the first two books.

I could not get into this book. I was really looking forward to it but then upon reading the introduction and preface I realized this wasn’t even the same book being offered by Netgalley. The covers and title were different and it was also the third instalment of books the author has wrote on Bundy. 
The information contained in the book is vast and the amount of work put into a book such as this is immense. Any one can appreciate that much work. It’s just unfortunate it wasn’t organized in a way I could follow and I couldn’t focus on the material I had to try and go back and reread parts. I just couldn’t do it. I would like to go back and read the first and second instalment so maybe one day once I’ve done that I can come back and rewrite my review as it may be easier to follow.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC for an honest review.

I’m giving this book four stars. The detail it went into and obvious depth of research definitely deserved four stars. It highlighted so much information never before revealed on this gruesome, depraved killer. He’s a psychologist’s dream. Who would not love to delve into the depths of his mind to learn how it worked and why he did all that he did? This account contains information of interviews which were carried out with people who knew Bundy well and some who knew his victims and there are even details on an interview with someone who almost became a victim of his. These details are fascinating. It is so unbelievable that such a depraved murderer managed to get away with all that he did for so long. God bless all who died at his mercy.

Learned a lot of new things about Ted Bundy. This is the third book in a series about him. I haven't read the others, but it paints an in-depth picture of his victims.

I couldn't even get more than halfway through this book. The story jumps across the timeline, and there appears to be absolutely no organization to the materials that are thrown in. Yes, there appears to have been a lot of research here, but someone should have then written the story around it. I just had to give up because it was too difficult to keep it straight. This is very disappointing, because I generally love books like this. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I'm sorry I couldn't be more positive about the book, but it is horrible!

Red Bundy's Murderous Mysteries is a well written book and the author has clearly done his research.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advanced copy of this book.  I really enjoyed this third installment from Kevin Sullivan. I haven't actually read the first two but I am going to grab them and read them.  This was the first book I read in this type of format and I really appreciate the author's notes beforehand detailing some notes and innuendo's.

I received this ARC through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you to Netgalley.com, to WildBlue Press, and to Kevin Sullivan for this opportunity.

This book was obviously extremely well researched.  It was full of very creepy facts about Ted Bundy and gives some interesting viewpoints from the people who knew him.  The testimonies of his girlfriends were particularly interesting and unimaginable.  I expected this to read a little bit more like a novel than a collection of works but it was still well written and hard to put down.  The author's notes were well-placed and very helpful in bringing the reader up to speed.  

I highly recommend this book and this author for fans of the true crime genre.

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review. 
The book is third and final instalment in the Ted Bundy series by Kevin Sullivan.

Not my usual genre but there is so much publicly surrounding Bundy at the moment with the movie and Netflix series, and after watching the movie I was curious to find out more details about the man who is one of the worlds most famous serial killers. 

Having abducted and killed 20 people, this book provides no protection from the gruesome details of how he carried out these vile acts. 

The book is heavy with information, filled with interviews and photos of Bundy and his victims as well as copies of the case files.
It is perfect for true crime fans.

I found this informative yet gruesome, an entertaining read.

I really enjoyed reading these case files. I learned a lot that I didn’t know. Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this!

I was able to read this book thanks to NetGalley. Like many others I have become fascinated by Ted Bundy with all of the recent movies and documentaries. This book was extremely informative and interesting though disturbing as one would expect. A must read for true crime lovers.
