Publisher's Summary

Listen to this true crime anthology to learn about 12 more true crime stories that shocked communities and grabbed headlines around the world. You will learn about tragic cases of family annihilation and relationships gone horribly wrong. Among the most shocking of these cases is the murder of the Westerhuis family in South Dakota, who on the outside appeared to by an all-American family, but inside they harbored a felonious secret.

A trio of politically motivated murder stories will also keep you intrigued and glued to listen to this audiobook. Two of the cases involve hate crimes committed in the United States, while the other was the first major act of Islamic terrorism in the US. The three cases were also examples of organized crime, much like the murder of Australian biker Wayne Rodney Schneider. You may be shocked when you learn that the criminal investigation of Schneider's murder has uncovered suspects from two different continents, and that the actual crime took place on a third continent.

Unfortunately, many of the cases profiled in this audiobook involve innocent victims, such as nine-year-old Amber Lucius who was murdered by her own mother. Now that you have been warned, start listening to this audiobook and learn about 12 more high-profile true crime murder cases. You may be disturbed at times, but if you enjoy learning about forensic science and criminal investigation procedures, then this is the audiobook for you!

Wonderful facts very intersting listen

As always my favorite is true crime it is so mind blowing how other peoples mind work. In this book you will find some shocking crimes but the way they were dealt with is the most shocking. Mr. Rosewood touches on some very horrible crimes that will shock you.

The narrator really bought this audio to life. He gave emotion when he needed to but for the most part he just does it in his normal voice much like someone doing the news which is the way it should be. There are no background noises, no repeating of words, no volume changes just a clean clear audio that I totally enjoyed. He lays it out and lets the listener judge what their emotion will be. This is the first time I have listened to anything by him and look forward to listening to more of his work.

I don’t believe I had heard about any of these crimes. As true crime hog I took it all in enjoying every last word. With the way the world is going today it is good to keep up to date on true crime and maybe by studying it we can save ourselves if it is every our turn.

Fun Sized Dose of True Crime

Jack Rosewood, to me, is the master of short form true crime. He knows just what details to leave in and when to keep the story moving. This anthology is another great one - a series of true crime cases involving the biggest crime of them all: murder. If you love true crime, but you don't have time for a 10 hour book about one case, then the 'True Crime Stories' series is the series for you. These short stories are incredibly compelling to listen to, especially if you're interested in learning more about the minds of people who commit unthinkable crimes.

Bite sized True Crime for the Busy Addict

This collection of twelve stories is a quick and easy read that will keep you transfixed by the cruelty of humanity and the sometimes twisted nature of relationships. I really like the author's ability to condense the complexities of a case into an easily digestible story. Every true crime addict will find something to interest them in these stories.

Crime stories that really happened.

The narrator's voice was perfect! It was dramatic and clear when speaking. The stories were some things I have heard in the past but had forgotten. I had not had a lot of experience with audible but this was a positive experience. I would recommend this audible to any that want to listen to stories of crimes.

Interesting!

This is an interesting collection of true crime stories. Narration was fantastic. Some of these stories I've never heard of and some I was familiar with but they were all fascinating.

Great new installment

Jack Rosewood has done it again and brought the stories of these true crimes to life. They are each interesting and give outstanding detail. For those that are squimish, these stories are not as graphic as some of the books written by Mr. Rosewood. Great Read!!

Interesting

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really enjoyed this anthology of true crime. It covered a range of crimes, from child murders, to family annihilators to spousal murders. Rosewood has an ability to male these seem really interesting and I love his writing style. I also really liked the narrator, Kevin Kollins, who really brought these cases to life.

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction

This was the first True Crimes Stories book that I have listened to and I was not disappointed! There were 12 true crimes in this volume and I recognized over half of them from the news stories when they happened.

Each chapter touched on a different crime and they were all well written. The narration was great too!

Interesting, factual look into 12 true crimes

True Crime Stories, Volume 7 was an interesting, quick listen that covers 12 true crimes that have happened, most of which I had never heard about prior to listening. Oh, and when I say it's a quick listen, I mean really quick. It's 3 hours, but because there are 12 separate crimes detailed in this book, your time spent listening flies by! Each case was presented factually and in an unbiased manner, and you could tell that Mr. Rosewood had done his homework when researching each crime. I appreciated how he covered each case starting off with a bit of background and went through the crime, with surrounding details as they came up, and ended with the aftermath. In the times of 24/7 news media, it's really pretty crazy to hear about many of these crimes not being splattered across the headlines across the US.

This is my first book written by Jack Rosewood as well as my first book narrated by Kevin Kollins. You'll have absolutely no problem understanding Mr. Kollins, as he speaks clearly with a good cadence. As this is book is written in the third person, there are no characters to differentiate between.
