Well written, great narration, and a stunning look into broken aspects of our justice system.
This book shows what can happen when hysteria, and over zealous law enforcement and prosecutors, turn away from the rules and turn to persecution of innocent people in order to railroad someone just to get that all important conviction , so they can be re-elected or rewarded for "success"

A must listen.

This book gave me goosebumps. I couldn't stop listening it keeps you wondering "how are they going to get out of this one?" Over and over again.

Interesting theories and examination

I rather enjoyed hearing the parts that were about the stalking, but skipped other chapters

I watched the whole trial and really miss In Session, TruTV is just garbage programming now.

This book has a lot of neat little details about the investigation and prosecution that I never knew before. I remember watching his cross examination of Arias thinking, "What the heck is he doing?"
I didn't understand why he would suddenly drop a line of questioning to pursuit another topic. He was absolutely right about doing that so she couldn't think ahead and make up excited for everything.
Good Book

I have searched for books that tell about how things were inside the camps, and I have searched for books about the experiments, and the gas chambers.

While most books skirt around those topics - this one hits the full horror head on. First rate account

Wow the things people do just amaze me sometimes. This is a nicely written work of Mr. Phelps. The narrator does a good job except one of his voices bothered me a bit, but that can be over looked.

If you like this one and haven't read his Perfect Poison - please do so. You'll enjoy that bizarre story as much as this one if not more.

It was interesting to hear Koontz talk about the history of this work, his experience with the movie studio, and the new release.
This is a type of story that has been told in different versions before, but this has to be the creepiest I have run across so far. Funny strange and disturbing. Well done.

This contains about as much information as you'd get out of old news articles and nothing more. Very short and just the basics. I didn't even find the narrator's voice appealing,
Most of the book is advertising his other works, and maybe a 15th of the book is on the title story
