Publisher's Summary

Listen to this true crime anthology and learn about 12 of the most shocking true crime cases in modern history. You will be glued to your device as you hear about high profile true crime murder cases, such as the murder of Laci Peterson, and the murder trial of actor Robert Blake, while learning about some lesser-known yet equally notorious murder trials. You will follow criminal investigations into cold murder cases that were once thought to be unsolvable, but through a combination of scientific advances, good police work, and some luck, homicide detectives were able to give the victims' families closure.

Although most of the cases profiled in this book are clearly true crime stories, one case, the story of the famous doctor Jack Kevorkian, concerns changing legal interpretations of what constitutes murder in the United States of America. Other cases profiled involve privileged individuals who had plenty of money, but resorted to murder out of greed and selfishness. You will also hear about one privileged woman, actress Dominque Dunne, who had her whole life in front of her, only to have it ended by a jealous lover who could not handle her success and privilege.

Listen to this book, if you dare, and learn about some of the most intriguing high profile crimes and true murder to happen in the last 100 years. You may want to share this book with a friend, though, because as intriguing as the cases are, they are also shocking and disturbing.

There's a Sweet Spot With Anthologies

What made the experience of listening to True Crime Stories, Volume 5 the most enjoyable?

I am a True Crime reader from way back. Mostly dedicated one crime books, and there a lot of really good ones. I have mostly been disappointed with "anthology" style in this genre, too short, shallow, they don't give a sense of who the victims or perps are, and conclusions are often missing ...<br/><br/>Jack Rosewood hits the sweet spot with his True Crime anthology series. All that is missing in other such books, he incorporates in succinct manner. You get a feel for the individuals, a brief on why the police focused in on the guilt of the criminal and the outcome of the court cases. <br/>

Who was your favorite character and why?

There were a lot of crimes, I wouldn't call any of the bad guys "favorites" though. The likes of Scott Peterson, the Menendez brothers could be on the top of my list to hate the most, if that counts as an answer to the question.

Which scene was your favorite?

Not a scene per say, but the concise, thorough writing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The finding of the victims especially Lacy Peterson and her unborn son.

Any additional comments?

This listen flew by too quickly. I will most definitely look into other Audible books by this author. <br/><br/>David L. White is a pretty terrific choice for his skill at bringing the stories to life. He added much to my enjoyment and attention to the book overall.<br/><br/><br/>Thanks for the opportunity to review it!<br/><br/>This review copy audiobook was provided by the author at no cost. Which I can only assume was voluntary on their part. I am happy to give my honest review of it. I think I'm suppose to mention how reviewing this was voluntary on my part too

Captivating

This was a well written and well narrated anthology. I thought it would take me several days to finish as these stories are often so grizzly but this version was well put together. It mixed a great deal of details and case information. the transition music is just as scary as the stories. It's kind of scary that these type of anthologies are of so much interest but when you have stories like this that are well written and well narrated you can't help but be captivated.

True Crime Stories, Volume 5


True Crime Stories, Volume 5
: Jack Rosewood


This 12 story anthology of true crimes by Jack Rosewood bring to light just how evil some people can be. I remember some of these cases as they unfolded and others were new to me. I anticipate which crimes will be covered in his next book.


The narration was well done. David L. White voiced this book well.

Best Anthology of True Crime I've Heard Yet!

What made the experience of listening to True Crime Stories, Volume 5 the most enjoyable?

There wasn't one thing. Everything together made the experience great. The writing was smooth and flowed nicely, without dragging or seeming to stutter in places. It also made sense and was understandable yet intelligent. The narration was great. David L. White has a very pleasant voice to listen to. Also, the use of music cues underscoring the stories made the whole thing pop and really kept my attention and served its purpose perfectly.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There were no "characters." But I was glad to hear more about the Laci Peterson murder as I have always been fascinated by that case and it was highlighted in this book.

Have you listened to any of David L. White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Alas, I have not. But I certainly will be listening to more in the future, as he is a fantastic narrator! He is one of the best I have heard. I would say he is one of the top 2 male narrators as far as talent, inflection, pronunciation, tone, timing, etc... I highly recommend listening to him.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were several. But I'm not going to give away any spoilers. That's just wrong.

Any additional comments?

I definitely recommend this book for any fans of true crime. I only wish it was longer. Under 4 hours is a crying shame. <br/><br/>I was given a copy of this book by the author at no charge in exchange for a fair, honest, and unbiased review.

Worse than a low budget cable show

Meh. Just a basic overview of some notable crimes

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This is not really a book I would recommend to lovers of true crime. The stories are quick recaps of crimes with very little detail regarding the crimes, their victims and perpetrators. Basically the same amount of information you would get from a well covered news story. Narration is bland and adds nothing to the crimes. If you are a hardcore true crime lover, you will not learn anything new here. Bummed I lost a credit on this one.
