Book Description

A gigantic double novel featuring 21 different serial killers...

For everyone who thinks the bad guys are so much more fun to read than the good guys, this is a book just for you. The definitive volume containing every major villain from the Crouch/Kilborn/Konrath Universe is here.

First, there was Serial, the collaborative smash-hit that has been downloaded 500,000 times and optioned for film.

Then came Serial Uncut, which expanded on that story.

Then Killers, the sequel to Serial.

Then Birds of Prey which introduced every major villain the writers had ever created into one cohesive novel. (Birds of Prey + Killers = Killers Uncut.)

And now, all that and more has been brought together for this definitive, omnibus monster, which at roughly 600 printed pages, is the length of two full novels...

Serial Killers Uncut

This epic work, over two years in the making, contains Serial Uncut, Killers, Birds of Prey, Crouch's Break You, an interview with the authors, and more.

Serial Uncut + Break You + Killers + Birds of Prey = Serial Killers Uncut

If you haven't read anything by Crouch, Kilborn, or Konrath, Serial Killers Uncut is the perfect introduction to the dark side of their universe. And if you enjoy a despicable bad guy (or bad girl), you're going to love this.

There are twenty-one serial killers featured in this book: Lucy and Donaldson from Serial, Orson and Luther from Desert Places, Locked Doors, and Break You, Mr. K from Shaken, Alex and Charles Kork from Whiskey Sour and Rusty Nail, Isaiah from Abandon, Taylor from Afraid, Javier from Snowbound, and many, many more.

There are some good guys too, including Andrew Z. Thomas (Desert Places, Locked Doors), Jack Daniels (Whiskey Sour, Shaken), Violet King (Locked Doors, Break You), Tequila (Shot of Tequila), and Clayton Theel (Draculas).

Serial Killers Uncut is an original 120,000 word double novel that stands alone without having read any of Konrath's, Kilborn's, or Crouch's work. As a bonus extra, it also includes an additional 30,000 words of the following novel excerpts:

AFRAID by Jack Kilborn
ENDURANCE by Jack Kilborn
TRAPPED by Jack Kilborn
SHAKEN by JA Konrath
DRACULAS by Blake Crouch, JA Konrath, Jeff Strand, and F. Paul Wilson
DESERT PLACES by Blake Crouch
LOCKED DOORS by Blake Crouch
FAMOUS by Blake Crouch
SNOWBOUND by Blake Crouch
ABANDON by Blake Crouch
RUN by Blake Crouch

5.0 out of 5 stars EPIC beginnings of a dark thriller saga! June 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Serial Killers Uncut is a fascinating collaboration between authors Blake Crouch & Jack Kilborn, which originally started as an experiment labeled Serial. The novella was given out for free and turned out to be something of a success story as it was downloaded more than half a million times. Blake Crouch & Jack Kilborn then decided to flesh out the characters in Serial, which resulted in Serial Uncut, a book that was embraced by fans and laid the foundation for the authors' grand plan to combine their characters and written worlds into one milieu. A plan that was brought to life in Serial Killers Uncut...

SKU begins with an Introduction, followed by twenty chapters that focus on Luther Kite, Orson Thomas, Donaldson, Charles, Alex Kork and various other characters. Luther is arguably the book's main character since readers are given insight into his life from a child all the way to adulthood, including the first meeting between Luther and Orson. The cool thing about this book is that each character is hyperlinked to a `Characters' page, where a description of their first appearance and nature is provided, which is handy to have when you are beginning each story and learning about a new character. The sequence of the stories is chronologically listed with the actual books serving as time gaps.

Besides Luther Kite, the first twelve chapters also provide small but significant snippets into the lives of the other characters mentioned above including Orson and Andrew as twins who play and love each other, Donaldson learning his craft from one of the most depraved killers out there in Mr. K, and the Kork family.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING Read June 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am very picky when it comes to the books I read. I snagged "Serial" for free as a quick read on my Kindle one day. My friend and I were talking and I told her about it and she told me I had to read this one. I have never fallen so deeply into a book before. I am not the type to scare easily but this book scared me. With every page turn I fell deeper and deeper into this book. The authors do a wonderful job with each character and bring several different characters from several different books together for a thrilling experience. Before this book I was not sure if I would use my Kindle for my more than ordering my text books for school...after this book (and the book referenced to the full stories of each character) I have several books that I will be buying and reading. I can not wait to learn the path each of these insane characters has taken to get them to this book and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serial Killers should not be this much fun June 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am beginning to think that I am as warped as the characters in any and every book written by these guys. I enjoy reading them entirely too much.

The story was gruesome to say the least but was written in such a way that I actually giggled and laughed myself silly the whole way through.

Watching all these serial killers "run" into and meet each other was beyond fun. Now I find myself wanting to go and read absolutely every book they all appeared in and have a marathon serial killer reading session.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the Most Demented Book I've Ever Read February 7, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You think you've read everything when you've read thousands of books and are as old as I am. But you haven't read everything until you've read this. Not for the squeamish or faint of heart. I'm seriously worried about the authors' states of mind. I've read a little of each author, but was not familiar with most of these characters; so I come to this book with a bit of a different perspective. As a relatively new reader, learning most of the characters for the first time. I imagine I'll have to keep buying all the books now to keep up with the characters I've just been introduced to. So, how sick does that make me?!

Excellent job, guys. Truly sick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous .................... July 27, 2012
By Kim
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being a fan of true horror I had been wondering where all the horror writers were hiding, then I stumbled across Serial Killers Uncut (SKU).

This is a fantastic, page turning, introduction to main characters to other books. Tho I don't like cliff hangers, as a general rule, I could not help but to read with every free second I had to devote to reading, at the end of each "chapter" I was dying to purchase/read the book that the characters came from, tho I did hold myself back and completed each chapter of SKU. I feel the way the characters were briefly introduced with a hint of their background held enough information to keep the reader wanting to know more about them

I felt that the authors were truly able to bring forth great suspense, thrills and horror, tho I felt that with such a great combined effort of these two writers there could have been more blood, guts & gore. Understanding, from the notes in the book's preface, that they were unable to actually reach to the depths of the type of horror that I was looking for. Even after reading this wonderful, well written novel, I can not for the life of me understand why they were unable to write the original books as they were conceived. Especially when you look at what is televised and the "games" that are being created today. Too much editing in the wrong places in the world today.

My usual favorite writer (John Locke) is a phenominal writer of suspense/drama/giggles I now know who I'll fill my time reading in between his novels. I have also discovered that there is always room for another favorite writer.

I very much, look forward to reading ALL the books that the characters (in this book) were developed in.
