New York Times best-selling authors Gregg Olsen and Rebecca Morris take a new look at some of the country's most notorious crimes. Overkill is a compilation of Notorious Colorado, Notorious Arizona, and Notorious Utah.
Colorado's edition includes three of the country's most infamous crimes which all occurred in the same area of Colorado: the murder of JonBenet Ramsey, the Columbine school shooting, and the Aurora movie theater massacre. They also report on an Amish serial killer, on a fatal attraction that led to a murder, and on a minister's wife whose illicit passion drove her to murder.
In Arizona's, they update several cases, including: a man suspected of marrying vulnerable women, then killing them; two infamous Arizona killers freed after decades in prison; television's "it girl" Jodi Arias; a woman who was her mother-in-law's worst nightmare; and a football mom who got a little too cozy with members of her son's high school team.
And in Utah's edition, they report on one of the most sensational and heartbreaking crimes they've come across - Megan Huntsman, the Utah mother who hid seven dead infants in a garage; a cold case that was finally solved by a child's Lego; the rogue Fundamentalist Mormon who thought it was his right to marry and rape young girls; the sad case of children dying in hot cars; the husband who ended years of lying with murder; and an update on the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell, the case Olsen and Morris write about in their book If I Can't Have You.

There were only a few stories that I did not know about. And the ones I did know that I was given the same information I saw on the news. So it wasn't really a very good lesson. But I love Kevin Pierce as a narrator. His voice made the whole book better.
