Publisher's Summary

Great book, highly recomend!!

Jenny Ashford is a great researcher and writer. Fans of her fiction or "13 O'Clock" will enjoy this one. All at once listening to this book seems like a cross between a "true crime" expose, stories being told around a campfire or a chat with a friend.

Sooo many murders...

This second volume in the anthology is as informative as it is unnerving. The substantial increase in unsolved cases of this time period highlights more an increase in historical data than it does an increase in crime or violence. Like the first volume this edition flows very quickly. You will need a greater attention span then for that of a Dan Brown novel but, it's packaged in fascinating digestible chunks. If you listened to the first volume sound quality and narration are noticeably improved.

Well worth all 17 hours!

Very Clinical, Non-Sensationalized Stories

This is an excellent look at these unsolved murders. Jenny's approach is very simple and does not glorify or sensationalize any of the stories. This is a great read for anyone who is interested in unsolved crimes as an academic subject and does not revel in guts and gore.

Excellent collection - well written and researched

A great mix of well known and some more obscure cases. The author's podcast '13 O'clock' is a great companion to this work.
