I don't normally read true crime books but found this one a fascinating collection of the true stories of teenagers who have murdered. The stories were originally published in various issues of True Detective magazine. Absolutely chilling and heartbreaking. Despite the subject matter, I had a hard time putting it down.
After reading countless books on this particular genre I found this book entertaining enough, long enough to not be able to breeze through it, and the writing just acceptable even though the stories are still shocking and gruesome, revealing once again that violent crime even at earlier ages is every bit as deplorable and agonizing as in any other age group. One can not feel sympathy for these young killers but instead wish they never see the light of day again, for one that starts at an earlier age can only get worst with time. The victims, most of the times unsuspecting due to the age of the killers, are caught by surprise to meet their tragic ends.
This book is written by different authors, none of them specially brilliant, but the stories they bring to the table and even some of the photographs that accompany this book, are every bit as shocking as any other offering in this category. Some of the tales better than others but in the end an interesting true crime book, fast paced, revealing once again that evil shows its ugly face at tender ages, no distinction between an older evil or a younger one once one thinks about it. Line them all up against the wall and put an end to their tortured and sadistic souls, lest given them one more chance to roam freely and commit their barbaric acts again against the innocent victim, that for some reason or the other are always available as the sacrificial lambs. Would love to see some of these crazy twisted killers get caught with their pants down, sort of speak, in front of the barrel of a lethal weapon and rip some of the crop they were ready to leave behind. Killers Kids is repulsive but at the same time it attracts like a magnate, people like myself that never seem to get enough of the subject of true crime, never pleasant reading but never the less always enticing and dangerously fullfilling. 3.8 Stars.
