Publisher's Summary

This audiobook uncovers 10 amazing true crimes that exploded into the national news, shocking Americans from coast to coast - crimes that were eventually forgotten - until now.

Many of these incredible cases went unexplored for decades. They include: a “Jack the Slugger”-style serial killer who haunted the streets of Denver, bashing women in the head with a baton; the hatchet murder of a wife and child in Florida that put the husband in the prosecutor’s crosshairs; a psychotic and delusional killer who taunted the public and police with coded messages - long before the Zodiac Killer did the same thing in California; the only family in America to produce two spree killers; a beautiful, young coed who shot a foreign student for a bizarre motive; a doctor who sought revenge and wiped out an innocent family; a blind man so desperate to support his family that he set off a bomb in one of America’s largest department stores; and a ruthless killer who murdered a husband and wife in their car on Route 66 while their four young sons slept in a pup tent just a few feet away.

These astonishing true crimes will leave you wondering how they could have been ignored for so long.

The Narrator Makes It Great

Charles Huddleston has a wonderful voice! Let's just say it was made for true crime and mysteries. It's sonorous and clear, with a lovely cadence. And the man has a subtle sense of irony that he conveys with just the slightest change of tone. I just looked all over Audible for other books he's read and alas there's only one more.

As for the stories, many are fascinating. I didn't find them all equally riveting, but at least the earlier ones are well worth the listening. The Secret Agent Man story is probably the best of the lot. I love the fact that these are stories that may have captivated my great grandparents and it's interesting to learn how crimes were handled in earlier times, prior to DNA and the kinds of scientific forensic and internet-based tools we have today.

My new # 1

Excellent listen! I thought it was "CrimeClassics" revived. Well written accounts and the perfect narration. Definitely my new # 1.
