Four chilling true crime stories in one collection, from the best-selling author Ryan Green.

Volume three contains some of Green’s most fascinating accounts of violence, abuse, deception, and murder.

Within this collection, you'll receive:

Torture Mom: A Chilling True Story of Confinement, Mutilation and Murder

In October 1965, the body of Sylvia Likens was found in the basement of Gertrude Baniszewski’s home. She was starved, beaten, burned, and had the words “I am a prostitute and proud of it” carved into her stomach. The case would later be described as “The single worst crime perpetuated against an individual in Indiana’s history”.

Man-Eater: The Terrifying True Story of Cannibal Killer Katherine Knight

In February 2000, John Price took out a restraining order against his girlfriend, Katherine Knight. Later that day, he told his co-workers that she had stabbed him and if he were ever to go missing, it was because Knight had killed him. The next day, Price didn’t show up for work.

Trust Me: The True Story of Confession Killer Henry Lee Lucas

After suffering a lifetime of abuse at the hands of his cruel mother, Henry Lee Lucas would retaliate by plunging into a killing spree with his friend and lover, Ottis Toole, whilst under the influence of a satanic cult. The actual number of victims would never be known.

Black Widow: The True Story of Giggling Granny Nannie Doss

To her community, Nannie Doss was a sweet lady renowned for her cheerful disposition but behind the facade was a much darker and sinister reality. When Nannie didn’t find the love she was seeking, she had a unique way of ending the relationship.

True Crime King amazes yet again!!

This book contains 4 true crime stories. 1. Torture mom A completely disturbed woman tortures a girl in every way possible. I cant understand how someone could be so absolutely disgusting and sick! How can anyone do/watch/participate in the torture of someone else? Very very sad and disturbing! 2. Man-eater Katherine was a disturbed sadist. She tortured and killed animals when she was young, then moved on to people when she was older. Katherine was extremely disturbed, right from when she was a child. After hearing what she did to the pigs in the slaughterhouse, and how happy she seemed about it, i was nervous to hear more... 3. Trust me Henry and Ottis were badly abused by when they were young, then turned out joining a cult and raping and killing for pleasure. This one was wow! Again so terribly sad how people can abuse children, no wonder they turn out the way they do! This is not a justification, just an observation of how many psychopaths start off by having been abused themselves. 4. Black widow Nannie ended relationships in cruel and disturbing ways. From her children and husbands, to anyone who was an inconvenience for her. A seemingly innocent lady that nobody would ever suspect of being a killer. Appearances are indeed deceiving. What is interesting about this one was the reason for killing. Nannie didnt kill because she had a desire or need to, but rather because her victims were a nuisance to her. A very strange reason/ motive for killing indeed. Overall This collection was disturbing and scary, but also brillaint. The way Ryan describes the stories make them feel so real and the more real they feel, the scarier they become. I just cannot believe that there are such monsters in this world! Not only the main characters in the book, but also those that contributed to who they became. Ryan has a fascinating and intriguing way of taking factual historic events and making them come through in a brilliant creation of vividly described stories that evoke various emotions in readers. I absolutely love his books and he is without question the true crime king. Steve narrated very well and was a perfect fit for the story with excellent intonation and accents. I highly recommend this collection, but only to listeners who are not sensitive to gruesome details... Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this objective review voluntarily.

Warning true crime Is far more horrifying than

Warning true crime Is far more horrifying than any scary movies you might have seen. While I found these stories very interesting and telling just let me warn you they are quite disturbing. I have read a lot horror however these stories are far worse than anything you will find in any king or Ketchum story or novel. And the women in these stories are the worse by far, never believe that women can’t be pure evil as some might think. There’s truth behind the saying hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And Hannibal lecter has nothing on these women in fact I would rather face off with him than to ever meet one of these women in dark alley. That being said you’ve been warned and please use headphones while listening this is not a story children should hear. All that aside I really did like these books and do recommend to any true crime enthusiasts and they will have you looking twice at your strange neighbor down the street as you wonder how well do you really know them.

Another true, freaky, amazing book from Green.

I love Ryan Green. It's only the 2nd book of his that I've read, but they were long enough and amazing enough for me to be able to tell that I love him. They are like horror stories except they are TRUE. It's so mess up, I love it. But it was also skillfully written so it didn't come off like a gorefest. Overall, both the author and the narrator did a really good job. It was a fairly long book and they kept my attention throughout. Highly recommended! I was given a copy of this audio book at my request in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed this collection.

I liked this collection and the way that the novels themselves went together, I also liked the narration better than I did for volume 1, you could hear emotion and inflection in his voice, instead of it being monotone all the way through, and I believe that even if you have read the books individually, they are still well worth listening too as well.

Truth Stranger than Fiction

This collection of four true crimes is tales of some very deranged, mentally unstable and horrifying persons on record. Two I had heard before but two I had not and all four are definitely stranger than any fiction you can read/listen to today. Ryan Green does an amazing job telling the stories of these true crimes. I know he does his research and from all that he gathers writes a story that is engaging and unbelievably horrific. I know there are those out there that don't agree or appreciate his style of filling in "gaps" in the stories but I am not one of them. I feel he takes what he has learned; either from facts, hearsay, confession or other source, and spins it into a tale that is as beautifully written as it is horrific to hear/read who are not of the mindset these persons are. The narration of these four tales by Steve Wite is nicely done. He really brings the tales to life with his smooth cadence and lovely voice. If you enjoy true crime stories then you should really give this set a chance. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Amazing book set!

I listened to Ryan Green's "You Think You Know Me" and absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. When I saw this True Crime collection, I had to have it. The author really does an amazing job telling the story in a way that captures the audience, add a really good narrator and you have a recipe for success! Great books for a steal, you can't go wrong here. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review

Another great read by Ryan Green. Many stories, well researched. I couldn't stop listening! Narration was very good. That can make or break a story as you know. 5 Stars I was given this book at no cost in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

F antastic

Absolutely loved it! All of the stories were well researched and presented. Steve White narrates excellently, really doing justice to Ryan's work. I love Ryzn's indepth explanation of the early lives of the killers, telling of things such as abuse and head injuries. Though we feel sympathy for the children they were, and situations they find themselves in, it is also terrifying how hard it was to catch them. How close they came to getting away with their crimes, and possibly committing more! Long may Steve continue narrating Ryan's books, he really does a great job! Thanks guys!
