From the summer of 1979 through the spring of 1981, Atlanta, Georgia, was held under siege by a serial killer, and dozens of victims started to appear. The series of murders, which became known as the “Atlanta Child Murders case”, gripped the city of Atlanta with fear and shocked the nation because most of the victims were children. In this true-crime audiobook, you will hear about how the Atlanta Child Murders case put a city under siege and how a task force of law-enforcement officers from several different agencies eventually captured the killer.

I love these true crime books by Jack Rosewood. This book, like his others, are jam packed with interesting facts and accurate info.
Each time I finish one of his books, I can’t wait to do more research online.

In The Meaning of Blood: and Other Tales of Perversity, award-winning author and Edgar Allan Poe scholar Chuck Caruso combines his deep roots in the American Gothic with his own contemporary sense of macabre humor. These 15 stories of dark fiction range from crime thrillers to western noir to grotesque horror. Each twisted tale displays Caruso's unique blend of wry prose, feverish storytelling, and tragically flawed characters discovering that even the most innocent encounter can lead to death. Or sex. Or both.

First of all I want to say this is a great story. It is a story that made me think in order to follow along. The story is in depth with characters that contribute to that depth. One minute I am cheering someone on and the next I am not. There are a few things that are totally unexpected.

Jack Palms is more interested in tuning up his vintage Mustang than starring in action films these days. Along with his failed marriage and plenty of bad habits, Jack abandoned his acting career three years ago, and life’s just the way Jack wants it: boring. But picking up where Jack Wakes Up left off, Jack now finds himself in the middle of a whodunit in the seedy red-light district of San Francisco’s North Beach. Young girls, shipped as merchandise from Balkan countries and sold to city heavyweights, are turning up dead, and no one knows why.

I completely enjoyed this story. Great characters and the story was easy to follow. It is a story that you can just relax with and enjoy it without effort.
I was excited when I read that there were going to have different people doing the voices of the different characters. The voices weren’t great and it seemed the quality of the audio was not great. Sounds like they recorded it in someone’s basement on a Saturday afternoon.

I had a lot of fun with this one. I figure there are 3 types of books. There are the books that you don’t enjoy at all, the books that are good, and then there are the books you can’t stop reading and feel sad when you are done. This is that book. I couldn’t wait to listen each day. I would get home from work and just sit in my car and listen.
Great characters that will have you cheering for them as they encounter this nightmare.

Megan Daniels was only three years old the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, but flashes of that day begin to trigger other disturbing memories. At first they are merely snippets, but then they begin to appear more frequently. In her attempt to learn more, she sets out to find her biological mother, but keeps hitting brick walls. No adoption papers exist, and all she has to go on is her possible birthday: November 22. In the small town of Meredith, California, Megan’s search takes on a dire, domino effect - one woman has already been murdered as a result of her inquiries.

I always have a bit of a struggle following the story when I start. New characters and new plot. This was no different, but the author caught my interest quickly. Once it captured my focus, it just got better and better. Great characters, each with their own lives and challenges. I really enjoyed this story.

Even though the newspaper editor was somewhat stereotypical, (feisty, sassy, no nonsense), the story was totally fun to listen to. Responses were a little predictable, but knowing that, and it was still great fun to listen to, says the author is excellent. True in this case.
