Publisher's Summary

Everything is bigger in Texas - especially crime. Two of America's best crime writers, Ron Franscell and Gregg Olsen, team up to tell the stories of a serial killer who slaughtered more people than any other psychopath of his day without ever being noticed; two of America's most shocking mass murders and how their grim echoes still linger today; and a mother so desperate for attention that she killed one of her children and repeatedly tried to suffocate the other.

Short True Crime Stories

What did you like best about Nightmare at Noon: Notorious Texas? What did you like least?

The book shared some true crime that I had not heard before but being someone who listens to a lot of True Crime it didn't really hold my interest.

What was most disappointing about Ron Franscell and Gregg Olsen ’s story?

Nothing disappointing if you want to read about a couple of cases but if you want to hear the MEAT of some of the accounts this is not the book for you.

What three words best describe Kevin Pierce’s performance?

Narration was good for the book.

Lone star murders

Guess ifyyour as big as Texas Then the area will produce some big high profile crimes. Well written and researched. it is a gripping audiobook. If your interested in true crime then this whole series is worth a listen. I received a free copy of this audio book at my request and voluntarily leave this honest review.

Stunning cases and Kevin Pierce

This was my first time listening to Kevin Pierce narrate true crime...MIND BLOWN. So not only is he the voice of the apocalypse, he's the voice of true crime. But he could read a chemistry textbook and make it sound interesting. There is no one better than Kevin Pierce. So...the cases are very interesting. The Texas Tower Sniper is one many people have heard of, but the backstory was truly fascinating. His mental instability was well documented, as was the Luby mass murderer. Now the last case was one I'd never heard of. This is a short listen, but worth every second. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review
