Publisher's Summary

A little girl gets snatched while playing in the snow, and her tiny body is found days later. This is a 43-year-old murder mystery that was finally solved, but was it really? There are many people who don't think so.

There's also the story of a transgender woman who died in terribly suspicious circumstances, a case that would come to be the focus of change among the local police force due to the interactions she had with officers on the night of her death as well as the cause of an outcry among the community.

And who really killed the Al-Hilli family in the French Alps, leaving two little girls without parents, and why? Was there a link to a Middle Eastern dictator? What secrets did Mrs. Al-Hilli keep from her family?

These are just a few of the cases discussed in this true crime anthology. From the victim or victims, the crime scenes, and the criminal investigations that ensued, we follow 12 true crime stories, some of which are solved and some that are still mysteries. We also take a look at cases where wrongful convictions have occurred and why. These true murder stories will take you on a journey across the globe and even back in time in some cases. Family massacres, individual true crime murder cases, and situations where murder goes unseen in suicide cases, plus many more, will all keep you enthralled from chapter to chapter.

    "Amazing Book, Shocking True Stories"
    Would you listen to True Crime Stories, Volume 2 again? Why?

    This book has illustrated 12 of the most shocking and heart breaking crime stories that actually happened. The narration was excellent and the stories were well detailed. Yes, I would definitely listen to this book again.


    Have you listened to any of Herschel J. Grangent Jr.’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have never listened to any of Herschel J. Grangent Jr.’s other performances before.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it sure was.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has illustrated 12 of the most shocking and gruesome crime stories. It breaks my heart to know that these crimes actually happened and that a person can be so evil as to rape their own child and held them captive for 24 years. The narration was excellent and the stories were well-detailed. I would definitely listen to this book again. I would recommend to anyone interested in crime stories. This one is the best I have listened to so far.

    "interesting story in every chapter"

    This book has numerous different short stories about multiple crimes. It is very well written and the stories are just long enough to peek your interest. The entire book is fairly short but well worth the listen!

    Story
    "Needs a different voice director or narrator"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Being only a couple of hours to finish and that it was informative, I would say it was worth my time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The collection and details of the murder cases.


    What didn’t you like about Herschel J. Grangent Jr.’s performance?

    Robotic. The tone makes one lose focus and seems too rehearsed. Places that should be emphasized with some emotion as the writer has shown to be excited or shocked are met with the same bland tone.


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

    No, because it isn't meant to be like a movie.

    "A very interesting book"

    This was one of those books that is hard to put down. It is an interesting combination of mostly unsolved cases. It is well researched and well written but, for me, the audible version could use a bit more distinction between case chapters. A couple times it seemed like we had started a new case and I listened for a bit trying to figure out the new scenario when it was more details on the prior case. Aside of this it was quite good!

    Story
    "'Readers Digest' versions of True Crimes"
    What made the experience of listening to True Crime Stories, Volume 2 the most enjoyable?

    the brief but complete stories


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    most memorable was little Maria kidnapped by Johnny and Johnny being identified years later by Maria's little friend


    Which character – as performed by Herschel J. Grangent Jr. – was your favorite?

    Not applicable. Grangent's voice is pleasant to listen to, but he did not pay attention to punctuation marks. It seemed like he was reading run on sentences as he did not take a breath between sentences, paragraphs or chapters.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That horrific crimes occur all around us, regardless of where we live.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was given to me at no charge for my unbiased opinion,

    "Excellent Compilation of True Crime Stories!!"

    This was one of the better books of True Crime compilations that I have read/listened to. The stories chosen were each written impeccably with immense detail and background for each. Some of the stories I have heard of but not with such detail and a smooth delivery. This is an author that I will be watching for any future books.

    The narration by Herschel J. Grangent Jr. was perfect. He has excellent pace, tone, timing and voice inflection. He kept me engaged throughout.

    "very good thanks Jack Rosewood.. "

    I really liked the narration and the specific detail the Author gives to tring to get into the killers mind.. I downloaded the Kindle book on a free promo and was happily astonished to find an involving, expertly written story. This guy knows how to write in first person and build scenes tangible enough for the reader to stand and look around in.. The psychic connections and miraculous occurrences at the end kind of came out of left field, but by that time. I had. become so engrossed in the angst that I bought into all of it.

    Story
    "Makes you want more"
    Where does True Crime Stories, Volume 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first time I try such a short audiobook. I usually listen to true crime audiobooks that delve into the story they are telling and are usually longer than 8 hours. I have to say I am now a convert to short story audio books. This books has a collection of 12 cases, both old and new, infamous and less famous. It is beautifully narrated and it gives just enough information to describe the case and the conclusion and at the same time make you want to investigate some of the cases more. Overall this book is in my Top 10 Audiobooks


    What was one of the most memorable moments of True Crime Stories, Volume 2?

    The Good Hart murders (also known as the Robison family murders) was probably the most gruesome chapter for me - the stuff of nightmares or horror movies.
