True Crime That Will Have You Holding Your Breath.

"...A spectacular thrill ride...with lots of action, danger, hold-your-breath suspense.. "The pacing is flawless, building steadily to a riveting climax. The characters are complex,and chilling This is one of the best of many Killer /Thrillers I've enjoyed listening to. Great narration (challenging given the scope of characters'). A terrifyingly intensity infused listen.

Gary C. King; True Crime Master

Any additional comments?

This true crime compilation absolutely lives up to the expectations I have for Gary C. King. I usually prefer longer true crime stories that really get into the details, but King does a good job in this series giving just enough detail without dragging the stories out. There are some stories that involve children, so I would warn anyone who is sensitive to violence against children from listening to this one. With every true crime book I hear, I am further awed by how incredible forensic science is. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys true crime or anyone who is interested in forensic science!

Good Mix of Stories

Would you listen to Crime Scene again? Why?

I might, in several years, when I have forgotten the details of most of the cases. Since it's a book of many cases, most of which I was not familiar with (at least in detail), I can see myself listening to it again once it's been long enough to forget the names and specifics of the crimes. Of course there are a couple of huge cases, like Dahmer, that everyone knows about, that most people know at least some details about...but even there, there are always a few details I forget after a while. So eventually, yes, I can see myself listening to this book again.

What did you like best about this story?

I like listening to the different stories and trying to see if I remember hearing about them in the press or the media at any point. If they happened before I was born, I like to see if I remember seeing a true-crime program done on the case. In other words, I enjoy trying to figure out if the details of of any given case are familiar to me. Unfortunately, that's what I like about all of these type of crime anthologies, so it's not specific to this book, but it *is* what I liked best about it.
What I like best about this specific book was the detail given in the cases. Some try to hedge around unpleasant details, but in this book, they were stated as fact. Which they are.

What about Dan Orders’s performance did you like?

In this book, Dan Orders, performance was fine. It was flowing and matched the writing and didn't lag at all. I didn't find myself distracted or find my mind wandering. It sounded natural and the pace was normal. I also feel that the writing in this book was better than in the other book I have reviewed by the same author and narrator, so that was a help to the narrator as well, and allowed him to return a better performance. This book just seemed to flow a little better for some reason, although I haven't been able to pinpoint it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Actually no. It's a perfect book for commuting. Especially given the fact that it's broken down into individual cases. I listened to it on my dives to and from work and other places when I was alone in the car, and I very much enjoyed it that way. It's a solid book, and if you enjoy true crime stories, then there certainly cases in this book that you should experience.

Good Book

This was a good book. A couple stories based on children were a bit rough to listen thru, but I always have a hard time with those. Stories were well written, and audio was very good. If you enjoy true crime stories this is a good listen for sure!

Another gruesome, true crime book by Gary C. King

Would you listen to Crime Scene again? Why?

I'm sure I will listen to this again at some point. I like true crime books and Gary is one of the best true crime authors.

What other book might you compare Crime Scene to and why?

This is much like Gary's other books I have listened to.

What does Dan Orders bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Dan's narration started out a little slow for me but after listening for a while it got better. His voice is clear, deep and easy to listen to for this type of book.

If you could give Crime Scene a new subtitle, what would it be?

"Gruesome stories of twisted, cold blooded killers"

Any additional comments?

Of the few Gary C. King books I have listened to, I like this one the best. He gives good, clear information making the stories easy to understand. He lets you know exactly what happened leading up to and during the crimes and what the consequences were.

Five star book, a must read

This is a great example of what a true crime compilation book should be. It was wonderful to see just how far advanced we have come in forensics technology since these crimes were committed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys crime novels. I received this book from the author publisher or narrator at no cost to me
