Publisher's Summary

On September 28, 2000, former Indiana state trooper David Camm made a frantic call to his former colleagues in the state troopers office: He had just walked into his garage and found lying on the floor the bodies of his 35-year-old wife Kim and their two children Brad and Jill, ages seven and five. Three days later, things got worse when police arrested David Camm for the triple murder. Soon new stories started emerging about mistresses and violent bursts of temper. And as the ugly truth about the Camms' marriage got uglier and the evidence against David started piling up, two families - and the community at large - took positions at opposite sides of a yawning and bitter divide. Was David Camm a dedicated, conscientious public servant - the victim of unspeakable tragedy who was being railroaded by an unfair system? Or was he a cold-hearted murderer who earned his three murder convictions and every one of the 195 years behind bars to which he was sentenced?

Good true crime

What made the experience of listening to One Deadly Night the most enjoyable?

I just really enjoy true crime genres

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

All the different characters

Have you listened to any of Gildart Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not sure but it was good

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Hate this question.

Any additional comments?

This was pretty good, but not my favorite. It was a little too long for me.

The narrator made it a chore to finish.

Not the best choice for narration. His American accent was difficult to listen to.

Hard to like the story due to poor narration.

Would you try another book from John Glatt and/or Gildart Jackson?

Definitely not Gildart Jackson. Not sure about John Glatt.

What didn’t you like about Gildart Jackson’s performance?

Terrible! I have had trouble enjoying performances in the past, but never one as bad as this. It was difficult to decide if the book was written well as the narration was so bad.

Was One Deadly Night worth the listening time?

I almost turned it off early on due to the narration, but was the only book I had downloaded for my travel time. Once a couple of hours into it, I thought it would get better. The storyline kept me going, but the narration never got better.

hmm

strangely disapointing. it is reasonably well written but it may simply be that glatt didn't anticipate the final twist and of course there is nothing he can do about that. it is true crime, after all :-)

Conflicting Story Tellung

The tone of the narrator more than the words themselves made me feel that I was being subtly but annoyingly persuaded to see David Camm as Guilty despite the evidence. This put me off and left me feeling somewhat cheated. Intellectually Dishonest, what a shame.

A highly compelling rendition.

Was vaguely familiar with this case having seen a televised reconstruction but found this account to be both comprehensive and instructive. The narration is excellent and adds the weight and kudos necessary to convey the heinousness of the crime.
