    Story
    "Solid Storytelling and Decent Narration"
    Would you try another book from Gary C King and/or Dan Orders?

    Yes, I would.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gary C King? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would, although at times it felt he was stretching to find synonyms for certain words that weren't necessary. The best example is when he would call the investigators "probers," instead of just calling them detectives or investigators. It was like he was afraid of reusing the same word too often. But honestly, I would have preferred that.


    Did Dan Orders do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I don't remember him differentiating any of the characters per se... the way the book is set up, it's a recitation of facts in retrospect; you really only get to hear from witnesses and victims from reports and hearsay, so most of the time anything that is a "character" line is in quotations (for lack of a better explanation). I suppose he could have chosen to characterize those quotations, and some he did a little bit, but for the most part he chose not to, and it did not hurt the narration at all.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It wouldn't make a very good movie. However, it would make a very good series of true crime episodes on tv, and I would definitely watch those.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to any true crime enthusiast. I feel like these guiding questions didn't really help me leave a great review of this book for once. It wasn't the best true crime book I've ever heard, but I did enjoy both the writing and the narration. The story I enjoyed the most was the one about the killer who was going after law enforcement officers. And by enjoy, I don't mean it made me happy, I mean it was the most emotional for me. If you like true crime, give this book a listen.

    "Another great true crime book by Gary C. King"
    What did you love best about Murder Most Foul?

    I have listened to a couple true crime books by Gary C. King and I would have to say this one if my favorite. .


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of the cases are interesting and the detail is good. He didn't leave me wondering about anything as is sometimes the case with true crime books.


    What about Dan Orders’s performance did you like?

    I have listened to Dan Orders narrate a couple other books and I'm never disappointed by his work. He has a great voice for true crime.

    "For true crimes readers, this one is great."

    I liked this audiobook, not only were these twelve cases well written and explained, most of them happened in the Pacific northwest, but I was also in my late teens and early twenties when a couple of these cases, and I remember them. I received this audiobook for free and voluntarily reviewed.

    "Lock all the Windows and bolt the doors"

    I love true crime i guess because it keeps me aware that sadistic people do exist and to be careful who to trust.. in theese 8 stories are the most chilling I have listened to...Gary C King does an excellent job with telling of the most bizarre and scarry accounts that proves truth is stranger and scarry than fiction...

    Murder Most Foul: True Crime Stories of Murder and Mayhem
    : Gary C. King

    A collection of true life crime stories. Some of these I remember from when they happened and a few were new to me.




    The narration was well done. Dan Orders gave a chilling reading.

    Story
    "I Like How Mr King tells these stories"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, to my True Crime reading friends. The true stories are presented succinctly yet thoroughly from the time each crime occurs through trials and even the aftermaths.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jonette Peery the victim in the first reported story in this audio book. I thought of her throughout my listen. She stuck with me. Her story.


    What about Dan Orders’s performance did you like?

    Competent. More presentations of the who, what, where. He wasn't dramatic.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just discouraged by what some people use as their lame reasons for taking a life. Encouraged by the surviving families perseverence and by law enforcement and legal people doing their jobs day in and day out.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks for the opportunity to review it!

    This review copy audiobook was provided by the author at no cost. Which I can only assume was voluntary on their part. I am happy to give my honest review of it. I think I'm suppose to mention how reviewing this was voluntary on my part too.

    Story
    "Narration killed it."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration didn't have proper feel to it. It was like listening to a Text-to-Speech engine. Some good background score would've also helped. Couldn't care to listen more than a couple of chapters.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Getting to learn about the horrific and gruesome murders is always maddening. It makes me angry about the incident and makes me feel bad for the victims.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was voluntarily provided to me, free of cost, by the author / narrator / publisher. I'm leaving an unbiased review for the book.

    "Not a fan"

    This book was provided free for an honest and unbiased opinion.
    I love true crime but for some reason I could not finish this book. I don't know if it was because the way it was written or narration. This was just not one of my favorites.
