Publisher's Summary

It is no secret that true crime murder stories are not for the faint of heart. They can lead you to double-check your windows and doors at night, and question everything you thought or believed about human nature. Yet they are intriguing and fascinating at the same time.

What is it that makes us different from those who take the lives of others? That is a question that many ask themselves, and these true crime stories help to identify the method and psychology behind some of the most terrifying killers in modern history.

This set includes three true crime books, volumes 1-3, and each is filled with a variety of true crime murder cases, including spree killers and massacres, some of which are yet to be solved. You are taken through the background of the story, the murders, and the criminal investigations that took place.

Each true crime anthology in this collection will leave you to ponder whether the perpetrators of these crimes were really monsters. When you learn of the background of these killers, the age-old question of whether a serial killer is born to kill will be at the forefront of your mind.

Explore the stories behind the murders in these true crime volumes, the anger, the horror, and the sadism, inflicted by each killer. Feel for the victims, their families, and the investigators who had to deal with each case. And don't be surprised if you have to sleep with the light on.

I just love true crime books!

I am not sure why I am hooked on True crime books. I think its because i always want there to be a reason why people do these kind of things, and these books let us kind of look into to their minds.
this book has some good crimes in it. Some are chilling. some are unsolved. Its a good listen and i would recommend this to anyone who likes true crimes.
the narrator does a fine job reading this book to us.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

An Excellent True Crime Collection

This is a collection of true crimes committed through the years and even other countries. I enjoy the research Jack Rosewood does for his books. The saying "truth is stranger than fiction" is so true here. Some of the cases are solved while others are not but all are unnerving because they are all true. I found the narration done very well. Herschel J. Grangent Jr. has a nice voice and reads at a good pace. I'm not sure why others find his narration horrible or difficult to listen to because I thought he did very well. Anyway, make sure to listen to the sample before getting this book to make sure you don't mind his narration style.

Terrible narration makes it horrible

I'm so bummed that I couldn't finish the book because the content is amazing but the narration completely ruins it for me. I really tried to stick to it, because again the content is top-notch and very thrilling but since it is being told in such a non-pleasing way, you just can't stick with it.

Narrator Sucks

I love true crime. Too bad this selection was ruined by the worst voice actor ever. Do Not Buy This. The dude’s voice is so boring, you WILL fall asleep in your car after three redbulls.

You’ve been warned.

Narration Too Stiff

Narration was too swift and stiff. Not enough empathy in voice for victims. Very clinical.

Incredible!

Volume One

This was a good first instalment to Rosewood’s True Crime Stories series. It mainly focuses on cold cases, and some are honestly baffling, like the Palmer Brothers disappearance. The later half of the book focuses on the creation and uses of systems like AFIS and CODIS. It was good, it just didn’t hold my attention like other instalments did.

Rating = 3* / 5*.


Volume Two

I much preferred this volume to volume 1. It was a much more interesting read, and covers a few cases that last a number of years, and some cases that remain unsolved to this day. I personally like hearing about the unsolved cold cases because I could draw my own conclusions (be they right or wrong) about the case.

I really like Rosewood’s writing style. It is quick and brief, but it’s to the point. Having to write about twelve cases to fit two and a half hours doesn’t leave much room for massive amounts of detail, so it really feels like more of a brief synopsis of the cases, though in looking up these cases, some of them have barely any information about them at all.

Rating = 4* / 5*.


Volume Three

What I particularly like about this instalment of the True Crime Stories series is that around half of the cases are set outside of the US. I know the author is US based, but it is nice to have crimes set in other countries, and this had cases from France, Britain and Japan.

Some of the cases detailed in this book were really gruesome, and some remain unsolved. The amount of cases described in this series where detectives have to wait for scientific advancements is astounding.

Rating = 4* / 5*.

Well written and beautifully articulated. The short stories keep the momentum and the listener engrossed.
