Killing Time

Woman and an 18 time killer how he charmed her and how she nearly became his 19th victim This is the intimate account of one of the most gruesome and terrible serial killers in history told by the woman who survived his fearsome attention This was one of those finish in one sitting books because it was relatively short and straightforward Although this style of true crime is one of my favourite genres I couldn't help but intensely dislike the protagonist and author Sandy What a shallow creature who even after all she discovers about this man believes he should Rest In Peace

REVIEW Killing Time

Tation of a lift and they uickly became lovers What Paul John Knowles failed to tell her was that he had left a trail of bloody murder along his route a trail which had yet to end Natural Born Killers is the astonishing true story of one This is a book of two halves; the first tells of when the author meets someone who she thinks is Daryl Golden while the second tells of when she discovers that Daryl Golden is actually Paul John Knowles a serial killerThe first part sets the scene uite nicely and while the author doesn't know what Golden is although the book title suggests it the tale of their friendship is interspersed with a couple of snapshots of brutal killings that had taken place around the same time as they met And although Golden comes across as a perfect gentleman the mention of crimes helps to build up the tension somewhatThe second part uite different from the first is when Sandy Fawkes discovers that Golden is Knowles and a notorious serial killer She realises how close she could have been to death although there is no suggestion that Golden was ever going to take her life As such the second part is acted out remotely because the two protagonists never meet up until the court case and then only very briefly and as such it loses some of its authenticity and suspenseI feel that my true crime spell is now over as this book does not inspire the reader greatly Having said that it is an okay read but not one of the most entertaining books I have ever read

REVIEW ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ø Sandy Fawkes

When Sandy Fawkes met a tall handsome American in a hotel bar in Atlanta she could never have dreamed what lay in store The man told her he was completing a 20000 mile journey across America As he was going her way Sandy accepted his invi Published originally as Killing Time it was later released under the titles Natural Born Killer In Love With A Serial Killer and for all I know several others This is probably one of a kind as true crime stories go It's the most intimate look at the daily life of a serial killer you're likely to get including an assessment of how Paul John Knowles performed on the dance floor and in the sack It's as much about the author's life as it is about the killer's but that never slows the story down for a minute believe me

    A slightly misleading by line at no point is Fawkes ever in love that much is extremely clear but an interesting book nonethelessIt's 1974 and Sandy Fawkes a British journalist is in America chasing down interviews Approached by a handsome young man in a bar she soon falls into bed with him with disappointing results and agrees to have him drive her to her next assignment an arrangement that ends up with Fawkes not uite managing to shake him off for the rest of the week Shortly after managing to say goodbye she is contacted by the police as her companion for the journey is a wanted killerTaking in her journey across America with Paul John Knowles known to Sandy as Daryl Golden and the days following leading up to Knowles' arrest and brief incarceration at times Fawkes' account of her journey has definitely been coloured with the benefit of hindsight and Fawkes herself isn't without flaws her attitude once she realises what a big story she's caught inside of I felt was a little mercenary but she is also honest enough not to try and paint a nicer picture of herself Having been in a very uniue position Fawkes is able to give us a closer glimpse of the man than would have been gained by any working in law enforcement complete with some extremely chilling details noticing the odd assortment of things in the trunk of his car and the watch he gives her as a present to name a couple The afterword presents us with the authors attitude to her work and to Knowles with the benefit of even years between them and it's interesting to see how her attitude has changed in particular towards Knowles An interesting addition to my true crime library
