    I’m certainly not typically a true crime reader. And this book won’t win any literary awards. But, the experience of a “true story” takes on a different meaning when much of that story took place in my home community and includes people I’ve known my whole life. A surreal reading experience, and a sad one.

    Gives a good summary. Wish the authors would have gotten more permissions/stories from family members.

    Duct Tape Killer by Phil and Sandy Hamman with former Attorney General Larry Long. This book was recommended to me through my local library and revolves around the true story of serial killer Robert Leroy Anderson who preyed on people in my home state of South Dakota in the early 90s. I studied forensics and also love the paranormal, and the authors of this book also authored Gitchie Girl. Gitchie Girl revolves around a multiple homicide (among other things) case, which let to rumors of the site Duct Tape Killer by Phil and Sandy Hamman with former Attorney General Larry Long. This book was recommended to me through my local library and revolves around the true story of serial killer Robert Leroy Anderson who preyed on people in my home state of South Dakota in the early 90s. I studied forensics and also love the paranormal, and the authors of this book also authored Gitchie Girl. Gitchie Girl revolves around a multiple homicide (among other things) case, which let to rumors of the site being haunted, but that is a story for a different time 😊 Robert Leroy Anderson had a rough upbringing and he eventually turned into a sexual sadist who enjoyed stalking, raping, and murdering women. Anderson’s crime spree began in the early 90s in and around the Sioux Falls, South Dakota area. Duct Tape Killer leads us through Anderson’s crimes and the intensive investigation and trial that followed his capture. Without reading the actual case files, it is hard for me to give a real deep review of this book. If we take it for its word, I believe this book gives a very detailed outline of Anderson’s story. The descriptions are not too intense, but still paint Anderson as the deeply disturbed man he really was. On the same topic, I really did feel like it was just an outline and that the authors could have done a deeper dive and really given us details that weren’t already public knowledge from stories seen in local papers and news outlets. I was not a fan of the layout of this book. I have now seen quite a few books that try to jump from past to present and some do it great and some miss the mark. This one missed the mark for me. Rather than creating a feeling of mystery and intrigue, I really felt more confused than anything. At one point we’d be talking about Anderson in the past, then the present, then all of a sudden he had killed someone, then all of a sudden we were back before he killed someone, and then all of a sudden he killed someone else, and then all of a sudden we move forward to his trial, and so on. In this instance I feel like it would have been much better to stick with a linear path, so we could see how Anderson grew into his sadistic tendencies and how each victim fell prey to those tendencies. 2 stars Content Warning: Discusses generally torture, murder, and rape.

    I am from South Dakota, so this book grabbed my attention right away. I enjoy reading true crime books, and this one was exciting because I recognized all the landmarks and town names. I remembered the search for Piper Streyle from when I was growing up, so learning about the back story gave me a new slant on it. Robert Leroy Anderson wanted to be a serial killer. He had horrid fantasies about torturing and killing women. Luckily he was found and stopped but unluckily he had killed two women befo I am from South Dakota, so this book grabbed my attention right away.

    The Hamman’s writing has improved greatly since Gitchie Girl. This book was well written & the research done on this story obvious. Hard to relive the memories. I remember these happenings. But so glad Robert Leroy Anderson had been caught & found guilty before he could harm other women.

    I think it’s pretty pathetic that there are people out there that profit from other people’s tragedy. Btw, these authors or attorney did not contact any of the family members or ask what their concerns were. Please don’t buy this garbage that glorifies these crimes.

    Short, quick read but I had to put it down multiple times because the details were just too horrific. That someone could be that evil, is unfathomable.

    Duct Tape Killer was told out of order - I think to build suspense. However, it just made it confusing. Also, it didn't address whether or not the victims' families approved of the book or not.

    Despite the somewhat lurid title, this story of rape, torture, and murder is told with admirable sensitivity (as was the Hamman's previous book GITCHIE GIRL). On the negative side: the disjointed chronology works against the book and some readers will be disappointed with the lack of detail.

    It was a decent book with great facts. Found it hard to follow at times, but the information as fascinating. Interesting to read the facts versus the news articles. Couldn't put it down!

    This is a fast read, but I felt the cover oversold it. The writing was ok, and done in a very conversational/TV crime show type tone where you didn't feel belabored by too many attempts at filling more pages like you find with some authors. One on my main problems is, it mentions it is about a demented sexual sadist but within the book it provides very little details of the crimes themselves. There is a lot of coverage on the families and investigations, but it was very light on covering details This is a fast read, but I felt the cover oversold it.

There is a lot of coverage on the families and investigations, but it was very light on covering details about the killer. It provided next to no information about the actual crimes which made it hard to reconcile with the description of "one of the worst murders in this state's history". I don't expect every book to be filled with gory details, but the way this one was described on the covers was false advertising in my opinion. I felt like I was watching a Law and Order episode about a crime vs. a well researched true crime book. The shoehorning in of the author's christian beliefs also seemed a bit unnecessary. Providing details about the families lives and their faith and goals made sense seeing as how one victim's family were devout and trying to become preachers. The section headings with bible quotes, constant mentions of "evil", the assumptive phrases about "no one knows what those two men talked about" and then insinuating it was about sharing their faith a as a tool to cope, Mentions of the devil causing people to be evil and commit crimes, is more about the author's point of view than any real detail of the case. Had I known the book was more faith focused and less about the crimes going in would I have read it? Probably not. It's not the worst true crime book I read, but I would not recommend it to anyone and I would not read it again. In fact I am a little upset I bought it rather than getting it from a library.

    I had previously read “Gitchie Girl”, by these authors previously and could not have expressed my love for the book. In fact I loved it so much I had everyone I could think of read it. And this book was no exception. Please don’t misunderstand in no way am I supporting what happened to the people in these stories, but I am supporting how the stories were told. Phil and Sandy Hamman did a fantastic job of painting the picture like you were there back then.

Phil and Sandy Hamman did a fantastic job of painting the picture like you were there back then. For someone that had not grown up here in South Dakota, I find these historical true-crimes fascinating since I was never tainted by gossip or the media. This story truly hit home with me as we live in a small town in SD and have two small ones myself. Growing up in a much larger city things like this never really shocked anyone. But now with living in such a small community where everyone knows everything about everyone it really touched my heart to see such an outpouring of love and support to find a girl that some people didn’t even know. But the thing about small towns, they tend to band together to help those in need and it was throughly shown throughout this book. I cannot wait to see what story these authors will cover next. For sure recommending this to everyone.

    I read this book because I have a personal connection to this case. The story is twisted and devastating, and it’s understandable why it shook the community as hard as it did. It’s hard to imagine someone like Anderson living in our small, tight-knit, Midwestern communities. The book itself has interesting information, but I thought it was organized in a way that made it difficult to follow at times. I think the authors did this to build suspense, but it ended up annoying me more than anything. I read this book because I have a personal connection to this case.

However, I appreciated how they didn’t over-explain the gory details. They were able to get the point across without disrespecting the victims.

    An OK read. I was hoping for more, but it is an accurate accounting of the stories published and law enforcement communication I remember from the time the crimes occurred in our community. The story jumping around and not in chronological order may be confusing to those who are not familiar with the crimes. I would have liked more background on Anderson and insight into his childhood. I also would have liked more about the Streyle and Dumanski families, including their thoughts about the book.

    Held My Interest I liked the book. I usually can’t read true crimes of rapists because it’s too graphic. The authors handled this well. Like many True Crime novels the trial “revealed” things we already knew, so to me it just gets tedious. The cell mate was an unexpected twist. The book would have only gotten three stars from me had it not been for that little surprise. I’d recommend it.

    Pretty average true crime book. I listened to this one. It went pretty quickly but it didn't feel like it was quite enough to make a whole book. It would have probably been better as an article or included in a compilation. It was also a little heavy on the bible verses and religious statements. Pretty average true crime book.

    This book gives a detailed look into the life and crimes of Anderson, without revealing intimate details about his gruesome and horrific murders in which no one should be. It offers information but does so with the utmost respect to the families of the victims. Interesting read.

    This was a very good book. I think that it hit a lot closer to home for me because I have lived in Sioux Falls, South Dakota my entire life and that is where the book is based. It shows how even in a small town bad things can happen and you are never safe from the world.

    I like the way the Hamman's put together a story.....it sort of reads along like they are actually orally telling it to you.....makes it very easy to follow along. I've liked all their books, even though the subject matter is true crime.
