    "mix of crime stories"
    Any additional comments?

    I reviewed a different Gary C. King crime collection in the past, and my review is very similar between that one and this collection, 'Murder Most Foul'.

    There are 18 stories in this collection and, like any reader, I enjoyed some stories more than others. In this collection, my favourites were "A Bedroom Clue Nailed the Kinky Killer", "The Sex Crazed Knife Wielder Who Stalked His Boys", "24 Hours of Screaming Hell", "He's Killing Me! He's Cutting My Throat", "Carnage at the University of Iowa", and "Four Blasted in Pistol Blood Bath". I say that these were my favourites, not necessarily because of the nature of the crimes. The crimes in this collection are all horrific and I'm glad that the criminals were caught and punished. The reason why I enjoyed these stories the most is because the author was able to help me understand what happened, in terms of backgrounds of the victims and killers, the motives for the crimes, and the justice that was dealt to the criminals. For some of the crimes in this collection, one of the most obvious questions that I ask myself is, "What kind of person would do this??" or "What was the motive??" or "Was justice served?". Those questions were typically answered in the stories that I liked best. If those questions weren't answered satisfactorily for me, they didn't make it to my list of favourite stories in the collection.

    I didn't give this audiobook more stars because I still think that the story titles are cheesy and sensational. I don't listen to the stories because they're sensational, I listen to them because my curious mind wants to understand the circumstances and motives of crimes committed by evil people. Human nature is endlessly fascinating, and how society deals with criminals in their communities is also interesting to me. If you want to hold a well-considered opinion about the death penalty, you need to understand crimes like the ones described in this book and think about what the effective punishment would be for these perpetrators. These stories are less sensational for me, and more thought-provoking about society and human nature.

    I'm ambivalent about the narrator. He has the right tone of voice for this type of book, but his pacing is foot-dragging slow. I can't listen to this narrator unless I have the playback speed jacked up to 1.5x or 2x the regular playing speed. When I increase the playback speed, though, he's fine and I have no complaints!

    I provided this opinion in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "must read for lovers of true crime "

    I was gifted this audio ARC from the author/ Narrator for a honest and unbiased review.
    Gary C King did a great job researching this book of 18 true crimes from the 80's to 90'sin which all cases were solved. The case descriptions are complete and extremely interesting.
    Daniela Orders's narrating was a bit too slow had to speed it up. But in saying that he was ok. Would like to hear another book by him to see if there is a difference.
    I truly recommend this book to anyone who loves true crime

    Murder Most Foul by Gary C. King was another great Read by the author. The book was full of some of the most horrifying crime stories. It details 18 chilling crimes that were committed by some of the sickest people around. These are some of the most compelling and terrifying stories.

    "Most Foul Indeed"

    This is an interesting collection of well written crime stories. King has a way of giving you just enough information at the beginning to create suspense and lets it built as he unfolds the sordid and sad details of the crimes he sets out to chronicle. I've read other books he's written, and this is another splendid job.

    The narrator did a good job with his reading and pacing. At times I found him to be a little sing-songy (for lack of a better term) - but he was clear and concise. All in all, a very good addition to the true crime audio collection.

    I received this book free from the author or narrator in exchange for my review.

    Story
    "Solid Storytelling and Decent Narration"
    Would you try another book from Gary C King and/or Dan Orders?

    Yes, I would.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gary C King? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would, although at times it felt he was stretching to find synonyms for certain words that weren't necessary. The best example is when he would call the investigators "probers," instead of just calling them detectives or investigators. It was like he was afraid of reusing the same word too often. But honestly, I would have preferred that.


    Did Dan Orders do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I don't remember him differentiating any of the characters per se... the way the book is set up, it's a recitation of facts in retrospect; you really only get to hear from witnesses and victims from reports and hearsay, so most of the time anything that is a "character" line is in quotations (for lack of a better explanation). I suppose he could have chosen to characterize those quotations, and some he did a little bit, but for the most part he chose not to, and it did not hurt the narration at all.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It wouldn't make a very good movie. However, it would make a very good series of true crime episodes on tv, and I would definitely watch those.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to any true crime enthusiast. I feel like these guiding questions didn't really help me leave a great review of this book for once. It wasn't the best true crime book I've ever heard, but I did enjoy both the writing and the narration. The story I enjoyed the most was the one about the killer who was going after law enforcement officers. And by enjoy, I don't mean it made me happy, I mean it was the most emotional for me. If you like true crime, give this book a listen.

    "Another great true crime book by Gary C. King"
    What did you love best about Murder Most Foul?

    I have listened to a couple true crime books by Gary C. King and I would have to say this one if my favorite. .


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of the cases are interesting and the detail is good. He didn't leave me wondering about anything as is sometimes the case with true crime books.


    What about Dan Orders’s performance did you like?

    I have listened to Dan Orders narrate a couple other books and I'm never disappointed by his work. He has a great voice for true crime.

    "For true crimes readers, this one is great."

    I liked this audiobook, not only were these twelve cases well written and explained, most of them happened in the Pacific northwest, but I was also in my late teens and early twenties when a couple of these cases, and I remember them. I received this audiobook for free and voluntarily reviewed.

    "The best of True Crime!!"

    "An exhilarating ride with plenty to satisfy even the most demanding True Crime Reader - Very Haunting accounts of crime and depraved actions of the individuals .. I found myself rushing through the last few chapters as the pace increased and every moment was full of tension. Brilliant stuff." 

    the narrative of Dan Orders was a extra bonus ..
