    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Overall

    The plot in the first half seemed solid. However, throughout the second half it started to become ridiculous. But thats not the worst part. I couldnt beleive how much Gillian dragged this story on. I became so frustrated with her overkill of details and side thoughts of the character that I had to turn it off to take a break, more than once. It took forever for her to get to the point or conversation at hand. Lets just say I'm not a fan of her writing style. This book could have easily been scaled down to 7 or 8 hours at the most, the rest is fluff. Other than that, it was ok. I found that I invested alot of listening time only to be dissapointed in the end as well.

    Los Angeles is a town of dreamers, and of those who prey on them. The scene of innumerable bizarre crimes, it is also home to a unique police unit called Homicide Special, whose mandate is to take on the toughest, most controversial, and highest-profile cases. Now, acclaimed writer Miles Corwin uses his unprecedented access to this legendary unit to portray six of its cases, and capture its newest generation at work.

    Chad says: "Great narration, good story!"
    "O.K"
    Overall

    This audiobook was o.k. I have read more compelling crime documentary/novels. It was difficult for me to get past the voice of the narrator which was irritating. I was not particularly enthused with the "office politics" portion of the book either. Other than that, some of the homicide stories were interesting.

    Story

    After Jack the Ripper and before Son of Sam there was only one name their equal in terror: the deadly, elusive, and mysterious Zodiac. Beginning in 1968 the hooded mass murderer terrified the city of San Francisco and the Bay Area with a string of brutal killings. A sexual sadist, his pleasure was torture and murder.

    Overall

    "Zodiac" is compelling and kept me on the edge of my car seat. I found myself grabbing my ipod and listening while I was doing housework, exercising, and anytime I had the opportunity. I was dissapointed to reach the end. If you are a true crime buff like me, this is a necessary listen. The story is thorough and dripping with detail. The narrator's voice is perfect for the content of this book. In between listening I couldnt help but do my own research on the Zodiac killer because my curiousty was so stricken. I recommend the (unabridged) version only because all the details that are in that version are necessary to understand the nature of this serial killer.
