Publisher's Summary

Bizarre murders and disturbing disappearances that remain unsolved till this day!

When a crime goes unsolved, it can be frustrating and heartbreaking. The victims never get justice, and their loved ones never get closure. But when the crime scenes are disturbing and downright bizarre, it can leave with a feeling of uneasiness.

Best-selling author Hannah J. Tidy will introduce you to some of the most fascinating cases that remain unsolved and continue to perplex us to this day.

"The Girl Scout Slayings" - Most will agree that nothing is quite as horrific as when grievous harm comes to children. Unfortunately, we are all too aware there are some individuals out there who make it their mission in life to hurt the little ones.

These inhuman deeds are made even worse when the culprit remains beyond the reach of justice. One such tragedy shocked Mayes County, Oklahoma, on June 13, 1977. The girls were staying at camp along with many other children and camp personnel. One night, a counselor was suddenly awakened by strange screams, the likes of which she had never heard before. The counselor later described the sound as an unidentified animal resembling some kind of a cross between a bullhorn and a frog. 

The woman proceeded outside to investigate with a flashlight. The low, disturbing sound continued, stopping only when she would flash the light. After the noise stopped and nothing out of the ordinary could be seen, the counselor decided to go back to sleep. What she discovered the next morning would change her life forever. 

As she approached the children’s tents, you won’t believe what she finds!

Unsolved Deaths

I’m mildly interested in true crime, thanks to my wife, but really enjoy strange and unsolved cases. Was a big fan of the TV show Unsolved Mysteries so this felt like a narrated version of that. Lots of weird things happening in these stories. As typical with collections like these some are well known and others are not. Each story is told quite well and provides all the relevant information except for a conclusive conclusion, as these are all unsolved.

As with any collection, you don't get enough of the stories you really like and I'm now on to do my own research. These definitely have some horrific stories that I winced a bit while listening to. I am always amazed at how deranged some people can be. I have to say I really enjoyed listening to these stories and it made a five hour drive go by super quick. These stories will keep you awake trying to understand and decipher the clues.

The narrator did a good job. Since this is told as a matter of fact story and doesn’t involve characters I was quite happy with the narration. I felt it worked quite well for this and have enjoyed his narration in the past and hope to hear more in the future.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Entertaining stories

I would rate higher but the editor let some things through. Like with Ness being on TV, don't think he was in the 30's but what do I know.

Alarming Collection of True Stories

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
As they say truth is stranger than fiction, but in the case of these stories truth is scarier than fiction. These stories are not only scary, but they make you think about how your decisions in life can make you a target for a disturbed criminal. Although unsettling, it is fascinating to hear about cases of murder that aren't widely known. If you enjoy true stories about murder and mayhem this is a perfect book for you!

Some Retold, Some New

This collection gives you the basic details of events you may or may not have heard of. The ones involving children disturbed me though.

Some new stories I haven’t heard before

I am leaving this voluntary review after receiving a free copy of this book at my request.

As a true crime fanatic I’m always down to listen to a collection of “horror” stories. That being said, horror tends to be a hit or miss for me. It seems that the same handful of stories are continuously being retold again and again, nearly word for word with no new information. Fortunately this book did offer a few accounts that were new to me.
It highlights some interesting stories with a good bit of information, enough to keep the listener’s interested without seeming to ramble on.

Not for the faint of heart but oh so good

If you are into unsolved mysteries and crime this book is for you! The stories in here were mostly unfamiliar to me. There was a lot of mystery surrounding so many of these cases and it allows your mind to wander trying to figure who or what may of caused these murders. I was impressed with the wide range of stories covered in this book. If she writes another I will definitely pick it up and read it as well.

Concise Summaries Of Some Very Chilling Cases

Most of the cases in this book are very familiar to me as I'm a true-crime fan and regularly listen to true crime podcasts and read a lot of true crime books. I did find a couple of chilling cases that I had no idea about and took it upon myself to research them a bit further online.

As this book is an anthology of sorts, the stories don't delve very deeply into the details but you do get a nice synopsis of the case. If any of them interest you, I recommend seeking out books or even podcasts that focus on just that one case to get a deeper understanding of the details.

The only complaint I have about this book is the narrator; He seems rather cheery in his performance due to the tone of his voice and how he reads. He would make a great children's book narrator or even a lighthearted book for adults but for true crime it wasn't a good fit. To give you an idea, he sounded rather chipper while describing the gruesome and sad rape, mutilation, and murder of a child in Japan. I'm sure he didn't mean to come across that way but it did add an unsettling and uncomfortable feeling hearing the words written by Hannah Tidy in a sing-song/upbeat tone by the narrator.

That being said, I would have probably enjoyed this title much more if I would have read it myself off my Kindle.

Unsolved Mysteries

This short audiobook contains stories of real, unsolved murders. It is a quick and easy listen. Some of the stories are more well-known than others; some are quite disturbing. Each chapter details one unsolved mystery from beginning to end. The stories are well-told, with the author/narrator providing the most pertinent details of each crime-except for their conclusions, since they are unsolved.

The narrator does a good job. His voice is both pleasant and entertaining.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys true crime stories.

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

interesting but not unsolved

I'm not quite sure where the unsolved comes in as some of the cases featured have been solved long before the book was published

Well written book, let down by narration



This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.


The book follows an interesting concept of investigating some pretty high profile murders in the UK and the US. Some of them pretty grotesque and chilling. 


The writer is very informative and the stories are compelling, some are sad. Others are shocking. 


It is narrated, not like a story, but... Like a narration. It actually works quite well for this book because of the authoritive nature of the dialect. 


The book the narrator is reading from is written very well and, conversely, carries the narration rather than the other way round. 


The audio production mastering is not the best. It is unfortunately let down by poor cutting, with repeat cuts left in 8:30+ and some sections the cutting is too late, leading to some paragraphs being clipped at the beginning. The narrator at times sounds a bit like a robot, his prosody is poor. with not enough emotion and too much repetitive prosody. Relying on the timbre and register of his voice... His depth and smoothness to carry his narration.


Some of the sentences are read at a disjointed pace causing you to lose your emersiveness with some of the stories. Which is such a shame because the stories really are on the edge of pulling you in. 


I actually really enjoyed the content of this book, some of the stories gave me a chill down my spine. it was let down by some questionable narration.
