Overview

He Stalked His Victims. . .

A mother and daughter—brutalized, murdered, and left to rot in the summer heat. A young college student—killed with a .38 handgun at a remote highway rest stop. These were just a few of the victims of Timothy Krajcir, a sexual predator with an unquenchable appetite for violence. . .

From State To State. . .

He would travel to towns where nobody knew him, break into a woman's home, and wait for her. It started when he was still in his teens, when a rape conviction landed Krajcir in jail. After that, he spent much of his adult life behind bars for various sex crimes. By the time he was in his early 30s, he was a free man. Free to stalk, rape, and kill.

Three Decades Of Murder And Blood. . .

But in 2007, new DNA testing finally linked Krajcir to another college girl's murder. Ultimately, Krajcir confessed to killing nine women—five in Missouri and four in Illinois and Pennsylvania. But his three-decade reign of terror has never been forgotten—and the full range of his predatory crimes never revealed—until now.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Walker's true-crime account of convicted serial killer and rapist Timothy Krajcir is not nearly as exciting as the title and dramatic cover suggest, told is a style lacking fluidity or finesse. Occasionally, Walker will quote Krajcir at the beginning of the chapter ("I have felt emotional about my victims at times, and I'm not the same person I was thirty-years ago...But I can't say for sure that I wouldn't do anything again."), giving more insight into the killer's twisted mind than Walker's narrative. Walker fails to add any excitement or depth to a case that doesn't stand out for any particular reason, aside from Krajcir's successfully evading capture and conviction for his worst crimes for decades (in 2007, new DNA evidence in 2007 linked him to the murder of a college student). Die-hard true crime fans might want to tag along, but those looking to test the genre will be better off finding another starting point.

    Excellent Work

    This book is well done. It is very graphic, but the nature of the crimes were very graphic. The reader should be aware that there are graphic pictures of murder victims in this book.

    Predator was very engaging, and I found myself not wanting to put it down. For those who lived in the areas where these crimes were committed, this book will be a vivid reminder of how vulnerable people can be and the need to be responsible for your own safety.

    I am normally not a fan of true-crime books because of the "just the facts" style that publishers demand from their authors, but Predator was obviously meticulously researched and well written, especially since there were so many victims involved throughout a lengthy period of time and in so many different locations. The author provides his readers with often brutal accounts of each crime committed by Timothy Krajcir and still maintains a sense of empathy for the victims as well as their surviving friends and family members. The photos that are included are more than sufficient for highlighting the brutality of this serial killer without becoming offensive to those who may have known the victims. This is a well-documented case that has received a lot of national coverage from the media and Walker has done a great job of delivering the story while including many perspectives of everyone who was affected by this killer's violence.
