True-Crime Cases

This book is well researched as far as I can tell. I was familiar with all of these cases prior to listening to this audio. The authors state they used court documents, interviews and other information for these books. I don't doubt the authors worked hard to produce this book.

That being said, I had a few issues. While the authors state they don't condone her horrific murders, they spend a chunk of time mitigating Mary Bell's crimes. There are dramatizations of scenes that are clearly author conjecture. There were a few moments the authors were glib and flippant, considering the seriousness of the subject. A small nitpick: Marcus Wesson is a mass-murderer, not a serial killer.

Turning to narration: The narrator, Michael Goodrick, delivers a nice performance. His newscaster-like tone gives weight to the nightmares he is describing.

Overall, not a bad book. If you love true-crime, it's a worthwhile listen.

I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and am giving a voluntary review.

Much better narration from the first.

Unlike like the first book where the narrator had odd pauses, this one had more range and no noticeable pauses. The author gives straight to the point info and is enjoyable.

I recieved this book for free in hopes of me giving a voluntarily review.

Serial Killers - So interesting

I have never really been interested in books like these but after listening to these stories I am hooked. How can people like this really exist? It is so interesting hearing these monster's stories. I do have to warn that this is not for the faint of heart. Ready for more!!

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

Both creepy and informative...

This is great compilation of well-known crimes that is clearly presented with attention to details and facts many may have now forgotten or, perhaps, never known. While it seems to be sprinkled with a bit of conjecture concerning how someone may have felt about certain events, the overall tone of the book is informative, authoritative, and sometimes analytical which, in my opinion, lent authenticity to the stories examined within. The narrator, Michael Goodrick, has a news anchor type of delivery that is well-suited to a book of this nature. He chose a pace that was easy to follow and, with the exception of sounding a bit staccato in his delivery, gave the listener a great performance. Any enthusiast of the true crime genre will likely enjoy this book/audiobook.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from Audiobook Boom! in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.

Consistently Great!

Ryan Becker & The True Crime Seven consistently impress me with their work.
I'm a life long fan at this point!

The narrator is also consistently great. He walks you through these stories perfectly!

Only if you must read every last true crime book

The author admits he is not the best writer, and he is correct. He plays artlessly with chronology and often seems to omit details that tie the stories together. The book discusses several killers, including one episode of mass murder, making the title of the book incorrect. In the first crime story of Mary Flora Bell, he picks a side, switches sides, and then switches sides again. Clichés abound, such as giving an overview of the coming story, and then saying "Follow along. If you dare." The final chapter is an apologia, which is self-indulgent and warranted me dropping my rating by one star.
The narration is unprofessional. Delivery is halting, and words get mispronounced.

stilted verbal reading

I feel like he read the book with pauses in mid sentence... but without seeing the book I'm unsure if that is how it was written

I’m sure the content was good.

I literally could not listen to the narrator’s voice anymore. It was like fingernails on a chalkboard for me.

Good True Crime Read

Serial Killers: The Horrific True Crime Stories Behind 6 Infamous Serial Killers That Shocked The World (Real Crime By Real Killers Collection Book 2) was a good true crime read by Ryan Becker and Nancy Veysey. This four book set exposes some of the most heinous crimes and murders. The box set consists of books about; Mary Flora Bell, Marcus Wesson, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, and Doug Clark and Carol Bundy. These were good takes on some true crime stories.

repetitive

to much back tracking about the same details and too much conjecture. It's a shame because I read 2 others from the same author and they were good.
