Some of the book was interesting, but the author went on and on about military facts way too much. I didn't really get a picture of this "new kind of monster." The fact that Williams was sad over his cat's death did not convince me that he isn't a sociopath. He admitted to crimes he couldn't wrangle out of because of overwhelming evidence. That just shows me he was smart.

The author also needs to take some psychology courses. He stated that Williams's obsession with dressing in women's undergarments was unusual because he isn't a homosexual. The fact is, dressing in the opposite genders' clothing has nothing to do with ones sexual orientation. The term used for that type of behavior is "transvestite;" and most transvestites are not gay. Additionally, the author referred to most killers as being, among other things, schizophrenic. Few people with schizophrenia commit murder.

As a former law enforcement officer, I relished in vicariously watching the law enforcement investigation slowly draw the net together to ensnare Colonel Williams' neck until he finally ended up where this animal belonged; behind bars.
Since I am not a member of the distaff side of the human species, I cannot fathom how few of them failed to notice their missing underwear. Currently, in late-November 2017, both my wife of 42 (+) years and her best friend of 54 years are in my house. After posting this review, I am going to question them if they would notice missing underwear. Speaking for myself, it would not take me long to figure out that my drawer containing my underwear was shy of its former level.
Being raised with six sisters, I was privy to several internecine battles if one sister discovered her clothes in possession of one of the other sisters. There were quite a few pitched battles over this issue.
All in all, "A New Kind of Monster..." was a well-written, deeply researched book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I just wish that the author had been able to interview Colonel Williams so that we, the readers, could hear from this monster's own mouth as to his motivation that started him down the dark path he chose to walk.

I have a part-time home in Canada and was there when the Russ Williams story rocked the country. This was a man who flew the Queen of England, planned for other high-dignitary visits, and was very respected as commander of the country's largest Air Force base. Tim Appleby, the author, is a talented, seasoned crime reporter for the national newspaper, Globe and Mail. Without writing an encyclopedia, he cites the background, family issues, psychology of cross dressing (and new studies of this behavior,) and goes as far as anyone probably can to answer the question "why." A consummate journalist allows others to voice opinions, rather than presenting a position, and that's what Appleby gives us. Also, I much appreciated his non-sensational approach; the sociology and other factors of this crime are more important to the author than sensationalizing the unspeakable details of the crimes. While no one should live life in deep suspicion of other human beings, this cautionary tale reminds us to plan our personal and home security against the likes of a Russ Williams.

I hope that the hottest spot in hell will be reserved for Williams and those like him who so freely take the lives of others, absolutely destroy mothers and other relatives of the victims, and feel nothing. Williams appears to have far more grief over the death of his (very mean) cat than he does for the women he raped and murdered. I hasten to point out that Williams is now incarcerated in a tiny maximum security cell in a medieval-like prison at Kingston, Ontario, 23 hours per day, and long may he remain exactly there.

I highly recommend this well-written, well-documented book.

Scary and sickening. Here is a man in whom serious trust was placed and he spurns it, blows it off on purpose by engaging in sick homicides. I was thinking of writing him a letter, an envelope with nothing in it. That's what I think of him, a wasted blank. I thought better of it. Just let him collect dust.

Them were doing a show about Williams..This is an excellent book and a great read. Very hard to put down I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn the real story of Russell Williams.. I hope this encourages others to read this book. It is very informative !
