Publisher's Summary

In Shadows of Death, acclaimed author Katherine Ramsland takes listeners on a tour of New Jersey, New York and Delaware.

Home of the Jersey Devil, New Jersey has its share of other devils, from predatory nurses to thrill killers and sadists. Here you'll find a family that preyed on one of their own, a mass murderer with a List of Grudges, an adulterous minister killed with his mistress, and a wife who cut up her husband. This state is rich in crime, with a significant number of high profile cases, like the Lindbergh and Reso kidnappings, Unruh's rampage, and the celebrated success of America's Most Wanted in tracking down a man who'd slaughtered his entire family.

The Empire State has witnessed many unique and perverse crimes. Quite a few triggered international headlines. This is where the phrase "serial killer" was born - for good reason! From genius killers to violent child molesters, New York has it all. We also find the demented assassinations of Stanford White and John Lennon, the strange case that inspired Edgar Allen Poe, murders that enthralled filmmakers, scandalous crimes that altered journalism, and even a murderous writer. Let's not forget Amityville and the missing Judge Crater! But we must warn you: Don't listen to this book at night!

The first documented female serial killer in the US came out of the tiny state of Delaware, as did a "signature killer" who attracted FBI profilers. Political intrigue winds though an unsolved mystery in Wilmington, while a high-powered attorney ruins his life to punish his mistress. We have poisoners and bludgeoners, and some privileged teenagers killing their baby.

Always fascinating

These books are filled with lots of stories that have a wide range of crimes.

I especially like that in most cases I hear facts I never knew.

Love these!

I have bought every set available! Narration is on point, and the stories are varied between solved and unsolved.

Very, very short stories..............

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is comprised of three books. However, had I known it was comprised of very, very short stories, I would not have wasted a credit. Some of the stories were over in a minute of two, which I found very irritating as the content was so brief you wonder why they had bothered incorporating into the mix. The narrator was ok, just average.
