Storyline

Inspired by the real-life serial killer, B.T.K is the gruesome story of Dennis L. Rader, a murderer who systematically tortured and killed his victims for over two decades while evading the police for over 30 years. Living a seemingly normal life as a husband, father, security officer and church president, Rader's unquenchable thirst for blood ultimately led him to commit the most horrific crimes imaginable. Shocking and full of suspense, B.T.K is a grisly journey into the nightmarish world of a deranged killer. Written by Anonymous

could it have been any worse? nope.
2 February 2011 | by (USA, Texas) – See all my reviews

Grossly inaccurate and made for shock value, it could not have been any worse.

I have several books on this case, including:

(1) one by (former profiler) John Douglas, "Inside the Mind of BTK: The True Story Behind the Thirty-Year Hunt for the Notorious Wichita Serial Killer." Douglas was involved in the case from the 70s, and he knows his subject. His book is the most objective one I have read yet on Dennis Radar.

(2) "Bind, Torture, Kill: The Inside Story of BTK, the Serial Killer Next Door" by Roy Wenzl, Tim Potter, Hurst Laviana, and L. Kelly (they were in Wichita, or most of the 4 were, during BTK's reign of terror). It is an odd book, for, imho, the authors seek to "remedy" the opportunities the Wichita PD missed catching the Dog Catcher, Dennis Radar, and they do so by lavishing praise on homicide chief Ken Lendwehr. The truth is BTK would probably still be at large if not for the FBI, imho.

"The Hunt for the BTK Killer" (2005) is, by far, the most accurate movie on Dennis Radar.
