For more than 60 years, Southern Californians entrusted the bodies of their loved ones to the Sconce family's Lamb Funeral Home. But the heirs to the fourth-generation funeral empire betrayed that trust with a series of gruesome crimes against the dead. Featured on ABC-TV's Nightline.

I would eliminate the last half of the book, which is mundane court proceedings.
Very decent reader, great pace, no complaints.
I could see this being a great 48 hours, short and sweet.
Interesting story but got too bogged down in courtroom legalese and lost my interest toward the end. The Scones got off way too easily, esp. David! What an evil bastard!
Yes, but it must have a different narrator.His voice is more suited for an announcer.
The ending was okay but should be updated because of recent events.
No, not at all, I suffered through this one.
Yes, much more has happened.
I don't think I would, in fact. I think that the facts of this case were what saved this book and made it worth listening to. The narrative and the narrator both actually distracted me pretty badly. Too theatrical, something to be tolerated, rather than adding quality to the work.
The facts of the case. I won't spoil it.
Not really, but then, there aren't many characters in this book- it's very authorial voice. So the fact that he didn't isn't a slight on him, just a reflection of the fact he didn't need to.
If it were a documentary, absolutely. Fictionalized? Nope, never, too schlocky.
A great true crime book without any horrifying sexual violence, which is a really niche space in the genre. I wish there were a way to search for that, specifically.
