    A gripping collection of stories of human criminality at its most bizarre.

    These unusual, sensational murders recall not only gruesome historical crimes, but also touch on shocking and macabre modern murders. Included are details of groundbreaking advances in crime detection, law enforcement, and forensic science. This is the top-secret report on the most grisly, and unusual, criminal activity of our time.

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

    Yes, if the person is interested in basic facts about many different weird crimes. These are not in-depth, nor does the writer always give all salient facts; overall, though, it's a great compilation of bizarre crimes.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The sheer amount of research done and obvious interest in the subject that the author has.


    Any additional comments?

    Some stories have apocryphal or urban legend-type "facts" added, which are not always true. For instance, the electric chair that killed Albert Fish did not malfunction. Also, Fish's victim Grace Budd was 10, not 12 years old. While not a great difference, there is in the public's perception of the victim and goes a bit to the horror the public felt at the time.
