On the day after Thanksgiving in 1969, Betsy Aardsma, a 22-year-old graduate student in English at Penn State University, was stabbed to death in the stacks of Pattee Library at the university's main campus in the small town of State College. For more than 40 years, her murder went unsolved. Aardsma was smart, pretty and kind, and the Pennsylvania State Police could not figure out why anyone would want to kill her.

Would you try another book from David Dekok and/or Eddie Frierson?

I'd try another book from the author, not the narrator

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eddie Frierson?

Literally anyone. His impersonations of the characters comes off as condescending and mocking.

Was Murder in the Stacks worth the listening time?
