    Fascinating, frightening or just plain frustrating? These eight gripping stories show detective work as it really is - and sometimes truth can be stranger than fiction. Hear about the ghostly dream that helped to solve a baffling murder mystery, some clever detectives' tricks that led to the conviction of the 'Laurel and Hardy' jewel thieves, and the crafty blackmailer who nearly got away with the perfect crime.

    Story

    I used to listen to this audio book on tape when I was younger. I was delighted to find it on Audible. The stories are really interesting and very well told. The author has clearly done his research and has put it together well. The reader is very good. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in what detectives really do. These stories are just as good as the ones other authors create.

    Story
    (26)

    A girl murders her own father and mother in cold blood. A whole village of people disappears without trace, and all anyone saw were strange lights in the sky. An Egyptian mummy, disturbed after thousands of years, leaves a trail of horrible disasters. Incredible? Impossible? Too awful to imagine? But someone, somewhere has sworn that each of these sinister stories is true...

    Story

    I first listened to these stories on tapes from the library when I was in middle school. I made the mistake of listening to them at night, although the book does warn against it. Terry Deary did such a great job writing the stories, and Denica Fairman did such a great job reading them, that I was terrified!

    Listening to the book again about ten years later, I've still got chills. The book is great at portraying the horror of the stories, but also at presenting the facts behind them. Terry Deary clearly did his research for this book, and it shows.

    I recommend this book, but I will warn you that the stories are quite scary. Don't make the mistake I made and listen to them after dark.

    Incredible? Impossible? Too awful to imagine? But someone, somewhere at some time has sworn that each of these strange stories is true... A newspaper reports of a monster man, whose fiery breath scorched the faces of his victims; an American swears to his dying day he was kidnapped by a family of Bigfoot or ape men; and centuries old records tell of a beached sea monster so huge, a man could have drowned inside it.

    Story

    I don't believe in monsters, but I love monster stories. The stories in this book are interesting and well-told, and Denica Fairman does an excellent job reading them (including voices for the characters in each story with a number of accents). The author does not try to convince the reader that the stories must be true, but uses evidence to support the case of each story. He also provides evidence that the stories may not be true, then leaves the reader to judge for him/herself.
