Publisher's Summary

Can’t get enough of gruesome true crime stories and endless turn of events? Then this book is for you.  

In the following true crime anthology, you will be introduced to some of the most tragic crime cases in modern history. The 12 crimes profiled in this volume will keep you listening, although sometimes due to the shocking nature you will undoubtedly not want to listen....

The primary theme of this volume is youth violence and some of the factors that have driven kids to kill. Some of the reasons were as shocking as the crimes themselves, such as the case of the two 13-year-old boys who killed one of the boy’s grandmother so they could buy some marijuana and have a pizza party. You will also listen to tales of teens who killed just for fun, such as Don Collins, while the motives for other teen murderers remain a mystery.  

The tragic case of the murder of the Doss family highlights that sometimes people, even teenagers, don’t need a reason to kill. Along with the profiles of teen killers are other chapters that examine cold case murder mysteries and other cases that can only be described as strange or bizarre. No matter the content, each of the 12 chapters are riveting and will keep you wanting to continue to listen.

So come along for a journey into the depraved criminal mind. The world you are about to enter may frighten and shock you, but you will also be intrigued as you learn what makes some of the worst killers tick…

Hug your kids tight before and after listening

Second true crime book I’ve listened to and quite a bit different as this focuses a little bit of time on 12 different cases and not just one individual. They all have a common thread of involving children. As a father, I have a really hard time listening to stories about crimes committed against children, fortunately there are only a few here. As a parent, I get angry listening to stories about bad children committing crimes. So all of these stories were invoking all kinds of different emotions within me.
For a newbie to true crime I really enjoyed this anthology. It told enough of each story to get me interested and act as a nice introduction to each case for me to get intrigued and then go do further research. I hadn’t heard about any of these killers and was constantly pausing to look them up. As a person who believes that safety is one owns responsibility, listening to these stories really made me realize how anyone, even unlikely suspects, can snap and start killing. Made me think more about safety in everyday situations. I definitely want to go back and check out some of the early anthologies, providing they don’t make me even more paranoid.
Kevin Kollins is a great narrator for this type of book. First time I had listened to him and hope it won’t be the last.

very interesting read!

Definitely keeps you interested, so you'll want to keep reading. Love the true crime stores. However, they are very sad because they are true.

Great Book

True Crime Stories Volume 10: 12 Shocking True Crime Murder Cases by Jack Rosewood was a great read. This is another great anthology of twelve of the most heinous murder crimes. I can't wait to read more by Jack Rosewood.

Great True Crime, Chilling, Great Book!

I found this very intriguing, I'm a big true crime buff and really enjoy these types of books. It's even more shocking/creepy when it's young people doing it.... it's hard to imagine such horror coming from such a young mind. I really enjoy reading about what makes criminals' minds tick, and this was a great addition. Enjoyed the writing and narration, if you like true crime I think you'll like this one. Give it a listen! Not too long, great for the commute. :)

Great book, yet again

I didn't know there could people so young killing. Even more shocking was, to find out they were not troubled kids!

It was a great insight on youth violence.

very informative

This is a true crime book about 12 real murder cases. The murders in this book are children. This book is a bit hard to listen to at times. The case of Jeffery Franklin is really hard. He premeditated killing his whole family, but no known reason for doing it.

The book is pretty in-depth It gives some before during and after facts.

I would of liked a different narrator. Kevin Collins wasn't terrible but he was just reading a script. There were no feelings or emotion put into the reading.

It's ok.

It was ok. Wasn't a great book, but it helped my time go by at work. I'm not a fan of the narrator.

Informative Book

This book is about the young committing one very atrocious crime...murder. There are twelve different cases in which Jack Rosewood discusses. While murder is a heinous act to commit some of these cases it wasn't the only crime done. Also, there is the forever continuing argument of whether these young criminals should be prosecuted as adults or not. If you enjoy hearing about or learning of these criminals and what they did, then you would enjoy this book. Jack Rosewood does his homework and presents these cases with taste and class. The narrator, Kevin Kollins, does an excellent job and narrates at a quick but pleasant pace.

Informative and real

I was cruelly disturbed by what these children did or planning to do to other children, I know children are capable of crimes, but some of them have no conscious or regret for their crimes.

True Crime

There is so much evil in this world and it is hard to imagine those that contribute to it let alone them being of the younger generations. As a human you wonder what could drive these people to do what they do and as a parent I have to wonder just what went wrong. Could their lives have turned out any other way or were they destined to do such horrendous acts? This collection of true crimes centers around perpetrators who may be young but can be more vicious than anyone. In each chapter we learn the names and details of their crimes and the outcomes. As we listen so many lives are changed and lost. One can only hope that we are fortunate enough to never cross paths with people like these. Narrator Kevin Kollins does a good job of giving these stories life. He speaks clearly and fluidly as he narrates the painful and thought-provoking stories that Jack Rosewood has compiled in this collection.

Interesting

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I found this instalment of the True Crime Stories series really interesting. It focussed mainly on youth crime, which is quickly gaining momentum in society. It was interesting (and kinda horrifying) to listen to the various reasons that these kids had for committing the crimes that they did.

The cases themselves were quite interesting. I think Rosewood has a talent for picking crimes to talk about that can pull people in to listening. Though, the first crime discussed in this book was committed in my home town, and as much as I really like Kevin Kollins as a narrator, he completely butchered the pronunciation of the town name.

Crazy!

Jack Rosewood sure knows his stuff, you can tell that he does his research and only stops when there is no more to learn about each case, to think about all the police reports, court papers it’s maddening and after all that to summarize it all and put it on paper he must be a little crazy himself plus very dedicated.
Truly excellent writing and with Kevin Kollins narrating there is no going wrong.

Excellent and recommended !

I’ve got this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
