True crime has a way of making its viewers feel slimy. There's a particular brand of guilt that comes with being titillated, scandalized, and ultimately entertained by what's sure to be the most tragic event in some other human being's life. FX's first true crime series, The Most Dangerous Animal of All, brings a new type of grossness to the genre -- one in which the audience feels shameful simply because viewing the docuseries makes us complicit in stroking the ego of its subject, Gary L. Stewart.
Stewart is at his most graceful during the vulnerable, tearful moments in which he opens up about his life-long identity crisis. As an adoptee, he struggles with feelings of inadequacy and fear of abandonment. Stewart often reminds viewers that his main motivation in learning more about his father comes from a need to better understand his genetic predispositions and to further develop a sense of self. But the fact that he took his story to Harper Collins without even giving his birth mother a heads up makes it hard to overlook the obvious monetary incentive Stewart has by taking his story public. While the FX series eventually challenges Stewart's claims in its final and best episode, Stewart's vast control of the narrative once again victimizes his birth mother, who never wanted to talk about her abuser in the first place.
Acclaimed for her "devastatingly accurate insight" (The New York Times Book Review) into the criminal mind, Ann Rule has chronicled the most fascinating cases of our time in her bestselling Crime
The obsession of proving that his father is one of America's most infamous killers has become a singular one for Stewart. That much is clear. But will you see what he sees? You'll just have to tune in and find out.
You are looking at the most dangerous animal in the world. It alone of all the animals that ever lived can exterminate (and has) entire species of animals. Now it has the power to wipe out all life on earth.
In 1963 the Corpus Christi Times called it a "startling exhibit" and said that it "stops visitors in their tracks". The Illustrated London News said what people saw in the mirror was "without a doubt, the most dangerous animal in the world". "And there is considerable truth in this simple, but effective statement that is made." In 1989, the exhibit was referred to as a guilt trip by The Morning Call of Allentown, Pennsylvania.
By 1968, Brookfield Zoo in Chicago had a similar display which read, "The most dangerous creature on earth is man, who destroys himself and has caused the extinction of over 100 species of animals." A version of the sign appears at the zoo featured in Yann Martel's 2001 novel Life of Pi.
The names of notorious serial killers are usually well-known; they echo in the news and in public consciousness. But most people have never heard of Israel Keyes, one of the most ambitious and terrifying serial killers in modern history American Predator is the ambitious culmination of years of interviews with key figures in law enforcement and in Keyes's life, and research uncovered from classified FBI files. Callahan takes us on a journey into the chilling, nightmarish mind of a relentless killer, and to the limitations of traditional law enforcement.
For 31 years, a monster terrorized the residents of Wichita, Kansas. A bloodthirsty serial killer, self-named "BTK" - for "bind them, torture them, kill them" - he slaughtered men, women, and children alike, eluding the police for decades while bragging of his grisly exploits to the media. The nation was shocked when the fiend who was finally apprehended turned out to be Dennis Rader - a friendly neighbor...a devoted husband...a helpful Boy Scout dad...the respected president of his church. Written by four award-winning crime reporters who covered the story for more than 20 years, Bind, Torture, Kill is the most intimate and complete account of the BTK nightmare

Soon after his birth mother contacted him for the first time at the age of thirty-nine, adoptee Gary L. Stewart decided to search for his biological father. It was a quest that would lead him to a horrifying truth and force him to reconsider everything he thought he knew about himself and his world. Written with award-winning author and journalist Susan D. Mustafa, The Most Dangerous Animal of All tells the story of Stewart's decade-long search for his father following a complex trail of startling twists and connections.
