Man-Eater: The Terrifying True Story Of Cannibal Killer Katherine Knight
by Ryan Green

Category:  Nonfiction: True Crime

Average Rating:  5.0

On February 29, 2000, John Price took out a restraining order against his girlfriend, Katherine Knight. Later that day, he told his coworkers she had stabbed him and that if he were ever to go missing, it was because Knight had killed him. 

The next day, Price didn’t show up for work.

A coworker was sent to check on him. They found a bloody handprint by the front door, and they immediately contacted the police. The local police force was not prepared for the chilling scene they were about to encounter.

Price’s body was found in a chair, legs crossed, with a bottle of lemonade under his arm. He’d been decapitated and skinned. The "skin-suit" was hanging from a meat hook in the living room, and his head was found in the kitchen, in a pot of vegetables that was still warm. There were two plates on the dining table; each had the name of one of Price's children on it. 

She was attempting to serve his body parts to his children.

Man-Eater is a dramatic and gripping account of the first woman in Australia to be given a life sentence without parole and a special addendum "never to be released". Ryan Green’s riveting narrative draws the listener into the real-life horror experienced by the victim and has all the elements of a classic thriller.

It's true. This reads like a thriller. Green's presentation of this horrifying case is captivating and Steve White's performance complements the telling.
