    The narrator is John Lee, who has a very distinctive voice and is a terrific voice actor. The info on both web sites; Audible, and Amazon, tell us that the narrator is John Le Carre! Somebody had a mind slippage there.

    Kim Philby was the greatest spy in history, a brilliant and charming man who rose to head Britain's counterintelligence against the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War - while he was secretly working for the enemy. And nobody thought he knew Philby like Nicholas Elliott, Philby's best friend and fellow officer in MI6.

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anyone interested in a collection of facts about Serial Killers this is worth a listen


    What other book might you compare Serial Killers Case Files to and why?

    Serial Killer Anthology because it is a collection of other True Crime writers along with RJ Parker


    What about Don Kline’s performance did you like?

    His performance was very appropriate for the context being somewhat clinical and fact driven. Impressed with his ability to pull off the foreign names


    If you could give Serial Killers Case Files a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Encyclopedia of Death Serial Killers


    Any additional comments?

    Just the facts kind of True Crime writing, some books give you a bunch of fluff and human despair. This True Crime book gives you just the plain facts and a starting point if you want to research further for many cases explained in this book.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anyone interested in True Crime and the inner workings of a Serial Killer this book is packed with plenty variety and engrossing studies of what makes a Serial Killer


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    His ability to read some of the names without a flaw, my only complaint but didn't really take away from my enjoyment was the two spots where narration editing was not removed where he would say start over and repeat the sentence.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Don Kline?

    Yes as long as the subject was of interest to me.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Many facts from the different authors and their own special interest in the subject of a Serial Killer.


    Any additional comments?

    I read plenty of True Crime and found this book very entertaining and informative. I'm a fan of the authors of this book and have collected other works from them.

    This book is a collection of new cases I have not seen in other book forms.

    There seems to be different forms of True Crime some is wrote like a mystery movie such as a Ann Rule book, and some take a police point of view that is very entertaining. The collection in this book is another form of Just The Facts that take away all the fluff and just entices you into a study of a criminal mind.

    What made the experience of listening to Serial Killers Abridged the most enjoyable?

    The fountain of content, and the short chapters each providing another crazed killer


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Plenty for anyone exploring the darkness of humanity


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many locations of lives coming to an end


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The end of humanity


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a treasure of depravity. This book is a must for anyone who likes to read True Crime and the darkest side of the subject.

    The book gives you plenty of detail upon each the Serial Killers including dates, victims,and the outcome of each case. The word count on each case is perfect for short spurt reading that is if you can put it down without going into the next case. No wasted fluff in the writing just right to the facts.

    As a bonus you also get an extra writeup from JJ Slate contributing to the 101 Serial Killer so you get a taste of her very impressive style of writing, I'm already becoming a fan of hers.

  • "Profoundly Chilling..."

    6 of 6 helpful votes

    If you were entranced by the style of Robert Graysmith's Zodiac or Bugliosi's Helter Skelter, you will similarly appreciate the hypnotic writing of Charles Graeber (yes, it means "gravedigger" in German) in The Good Nurse... It is easy enough to (falsely) assure yourself about most dangers in life, but what if your caregiver, outwardly diligent and trustworthy, were a cold-blooded killer, a psychopath murdering those whose bodies are made vulnerable to his supposedly healing hands? And these events were recent. Cullen was only caught in 2003. This book will do for the hospital bed what Psycho did for the shower...

    After his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed "The Angel of Death" by the media. But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster. He was a favorite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver. Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history.

Edwin Booth, John Wilkes's older brother by four years, was in his day the biggest star of the American stage. Without an account of Edwin Booth, author Nora Titone argues, the real story of Lincoln's assassin has never been told.

Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

Kenneth sad foroverbøjet med hænderne i skødet. En spinkel og almindelig dreng at se på og uden iøjnefaldende fællestræk med en klassisk kriminel. Det var en fremtoning, der stod i skærende kontrast til det, jeg havde set på gerningsstedet. Det passede bare ikke sammen.

    To paraphrase the note from the translator, The Celebrated Crimes of Alexandre Dumas père was not written for children. The novelist has spared no language - has minced no words - to describe violent scenes of violent times. In this, the fifth of the series, Dumas tells the story of Karl-Ludwig Sand, a man little known to the English-speaking world, but famous among German speakers; he was the man who assassinated August von Kotzebue, a vigorous advocate of Russia's interests and the interests of the Austrian Empire. In the years immediately following the fall of Napoleon, many people in Germany, particularly young people, were eagerly anticipating the coming of liberal government. Much to their dismay, the autocratic governments existing before the war were not only re-established, but put great energy to ensuring that a liberal revolution would never happen. Karl-Ludwig Sand, a young German student, became convinced that Kotzebue was the key figure in this wave of repression. He made up his mind to kill the man, and kill him he did.

    Kim Philby was the greatest spy in history, a brilliant and charming man who rose to head Britain's counterintelligence against the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War - while he was secretly working for the enemy. And nobody thought he knew Philby like Nicholas Elliott, Philby's best friend and fellow officer in MI6.

    For most of us, the story of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy depicts Lee Harvey Oswald as a convenient cliche or a conspiracy puppet, Lone Gunman or Framed Patsy. Lost among the competing theories of villainy and cover-up is the real Lee Harvey Oswald, a troubled young man from a fractured family, a lonely child born without a future. In this original and dramatic work, Steven Beschloss draws on a rich but relatively unmined public record, key interviews with Marguerite and other family members, and Lee's own writing.

    Today's high-flying, high-rolling conglomarateurs and corporate raiders are a tame lot compared to their immediate predecessors. The most notorious of these is Robert Vesco, the Kingfish himself, who in 1973 fled the United States accused of looting $250 million from Investors Overseas Services. Now, in this riveting account, noted author Arthur Herzog tells the astounding story of this high school dropout from Detroit, who parlayed cunning, ambition, a brilliant mind, and above all, other people's gullibility and money into a vast financial empire.
