Great True Crime Read

Twelve From Hell: The Ultimate True Crime Case Collection (12-Book True Crime Collections 1) was a great read by Ryan Green. This set consists of; Obeying Evil: The Mockingbird Hill Massacre Through the Eyes of a Killer, The Truro Murders: The Sex Killing Spree Through the Eyes of an Accomplice, Sinclair: The World's End Murders Through the Eyes of a Killer, You Think You Know Me: The True Story of Herb Baumeister and the Horror at Fox Hollow Farm, Torture Mom: A Chilling True Story of Confinement, Mutilation and Murder, Man-Eater: The Terrifying True Story of Cannibal Killer Katherine Knight, Trust Me: The True Story of Confession Killer Henry Lee Lucas, Black Widow: The True Story of Giggling Granny Nannie Doss, Harold Shipman: The True Story of Britain’s Most Notorious Serial Killer, Colombian Killers: The True Stories of the Three Most Prolific Serial Killers on Earth, Fred & Rose West: Britain’s Most Infamous Killer Couple, and The Kurim Case: A Terrifying True Story of Child Abuse, Cults & Cannibalism. This Ultimate True Crime Case Collection contains disturbing accounts of some of the most brutal and bizarre true crime stories in history. Obeying Evil: The Mockingbird Hill Massacre Through the Eyes of a Killer (True Crime) was another good true crime book by Ryan Green. Ronald Gene Simmons went on the most disturbing family killing spree in the United States. In 1987 he spent a week murdering fourteen members of his family, a former co-worker and one stranger. When he retired after twenty years of service in the Air Force, his life was full of instability. He wanted to have complete control of his family. This was another great true crime audiobook for any fan of true crime. The Truro Murders: The Sex Killing Spree Through the Eyes of an Accomplice was a good true crime story by Ryan Green. It is the shocking true crime story of Christopher Worrel and James Miller. James Miller was the accomplice to one of the worst serial killing sprees in Australia. In two months, from 1976 to 1977, there were seven women who were raped and murdered. The two men met in prison and it started a strange relationship. This book follows their meeting, killings and how they were discovered. I enjoyed this audiobook and can't wait to read more true crime stories by Ryan Green. Sinclair: The World's End Murders through the Eyes of a Killer was another good read by Ryan Green. In October of 1977, Christine and Helen left the World's End pub with two men. Unfortunately the next day their naked bodies are found. They were beaten, gagged, tied, raped and strangled; and there was no attempt to conceal their bodies. Due to DNA profiling advances, investigators in Scotland linked Angus Sinclair to the murders. Although it isn't known how many victims he had, it is thought to be at least six but it could be twice that. You Think You Know Me: The True Stroy of Herb Baumeister and the Horror at Fox Hollow Farm was another good true crime story by Ryan Green. In 1994, Erich Baumeister was playing in the woods at his home when he stumbled upon a partially buried human skeleton. He brought it to his mom's attention who asked her husband Herb about it. He claimed it belong to his father for research purposes. His wife believed him but she became more and more concerned over the next eighteen months. Herb went on vacation in 1996 and she granted police access to their property. Police discovered the remains of eleven bodies. Herb shot himself after news got out of the discovery. This was a good read for anyone who likes true crime stories. Torture Mom: A Chilling True Story of Confinement, Mutilation and Murder (True Crime) by Ryan Green was a good read. As a disclaimer I will say that this book has a few very cringe moments and has some very graphic moments. Sylvia and Jenny were left in the care of Gertrude in 1965. This book followed the horrifying true crime at the hands of Gertrude and the kids in her care. Man-Eater: Terrifying True Story of Cannibal Killer Katherine Knight was a great true crime story by Ryan Green. This book follows Katherine Knight from her upbringing to the day she committed a chilling murder. John Price took a restraining order out on Knight and later that day he told his co-workers if he ever goes missing its because Knight killed him. The next day would prove to show that Price was right because Knight heinously murdered him. Trust Me: The True Story of Confession Killer Henry Lee Lucas (True Crime) was a good read by Ryan Green. Henry Lee Lucas was arrested on June 5, 1983 for unauthorized possession of a hand gun. The police applied pressure to him because they believed that he was linked to the disappearance of two girls. He was in their custody for four days and wound up confessing to the killings. In the next few months, he confessed to hundreds of more murders. This was a good read into a bizarre and gruesome true crime story. Black Widow: The True Story of Giggling Granny Nannie Doss was a good true crime story by Ryan Green. In 1927, Charley came home to his wife, Nannie, and children to find two of his children dead. They said it was food poisoning but Charley didn't believe that to be true and didn't feel safe around his wife. He took their oldest daughter in the middle of the night and ran. The community supported Nannie after the death's and what Charley did.,Unfortunately this was just the beginning of the people close to Nannie who would die. This was a good account of one of the most shocking true crime stories in American history. Harold Shipman by Ryan Green was The True Story of Britain's Most Notorious Serial Killer. This book follows Harold Shipman. Shipman became a doctor and used his position to kill around 218 of his own patients. Colombian Killers: The True Stories of the Three Most Prolific Serial Killers on Earth (True Crime, Serial Killers, Murderers) by Ryan Green was a good read. This book followed Luis Alfredo Garavito, Pedro Alonzo Lopez and Daniel Camargo Barbosa. These are three men who committed some heinous crimes. Fred & Rose West: Britain's Most Infamous Killer Couples (True Crime, Serial Killers, Murderers) by Ryan Green was a good read. This book followed the lives of Fred and Rose West who were Britain's most infamous killers. These two inflicted years of abuse to their children and their house became known as "The House of Horrors". The Kurim Case: A Terrifying True Story of Child Abuse, Cults & Cannibalism was another good true crime story by Ryan Green. In the Czech Republic, in 2007 a glitch in a baby monitor revealed terrible child abuse. This is a case that captivated the nation as all the grisley details were revealed. The young boys suffered confinement, mutilation, psychological brutality and cannibalism by many people including their mother and sister. This is a story that will take you on a roller coaster of emotions. This is a good book for any true crime fan, I can't wait to read more by Ryan Green.

Ryan Green has done it again!

I was lucky enough to be sent this audiobook collection from the author, Ryan Green, in exchange for an honest review! Oh…my….geez! Shew! My ratings have a lot to cover: Stars? 5/5 writing FOR SURE! + Sickening = 3/5 + Suspense = 3/5. HOWEVER, the Narrators get two separate ratings: Ernie Sprance 5/5 stars while Steve White 3/5 stars. That’s me, personally. I’m super sensitive to sounds & some of the noises made by Mr White hurt my ears to the point I would have to take a minute to recover.

There’s just so much to say about this collection! Cases covered:

~ Nannie Doss…why are giggling grannies inherently creepy?
~ The Mockingbird Hill Massacre…definition of a man who’s snapped.
~ The Truro Murders…No man could have this kind of power over me!
~ Gertrude Baniszewski…The house party you never can leave
~ Angus Sinclair…I would become a hermit if I lived in Scotland at the time.
~ Fox Hollow Farm…The Midwest is where interstate killers apparently flock to.
~ Henry Lee Lucas… you know him & Ottis Toole but do you know the extent of their insanity?
~ The Kurim Case…those poor boys never had a chance
~ Katherine Knight…she was way too casual for her crimes!
~ Harold Frederick Shipman…this one got to me-he looks like my neurologist & my grandfather’s name is Harold.
~ Fred & Rose West…The House of Horrors is right! - **very graphic**
~ Colombian Killers…WHAT?! Between them, they were convicted of 329 murders, but it’s believed that the number they committed is over 750?!

I have been recommending this to everyone I know that wants to know more about true crime.

A true treasure trove of terror...

This compilation of stories representing the first twelve case studies undertaken by the author will undoubtedly provide hours of engrossing reading for any enthusiast of the true crime genre. Contained within this collection are detailed accounts of truly horrifying but absolutely true events showcasing the depths of inhumanity that some people are capable of inflicting on their fellow man. The book blurb succinctly itemizes which perpetrators of misery and mayhem are featured within but only after reading a few of the stories can you truly begin to appreciate the grim and gruesome reality imposed by the few upon the many. I felt the earlier stories were a bit more traditional and clinical in their approach but, regardless, provided a thorough and well-researched account of some truly despicable individuals and their heinous crimes. It did not take long for the stories to begin to reflect a burgeoning new style of writing which has propelled Ryan Green to the top of his chosen field. Often writing from the viewpoint of the killer or a close associate/accomplice, his signature style deftly combines witness accounts, police and court records, and astute psychological conjecture which unfailingly results in a vividly detailed and incredibly compelling account of the subject and their horrendous transgressions. While I was amazed and horrified by the actions taken by these seriously damaged individuals, I felt the considerable attention given to their past traumas and experiences, in many cases, provided at least a modicum of explanation for their shocking behavior. Precious few true crime writers provide as much historical background and psychological analysis as Mr. Green and that, in my opinion, places his work among the very best of the genre. I had read all these stories prior to this collection coming out but as each case is of historical significance and each is so well presented I had no reservations about reading them again but this time I read along as I listened to the audio version of this collection. The first four stories were narrated by Ernie Sprance and the remainder were narrated by Steve White. Both narrators did an outstanding job in bringing each story to life in all its grim and chilling detail. I highly recommend this collection and believe it to be well worth your investment of time and money.

My Stomach Couldn’t Hang

Author is great - Narrator is great - Skipped a couple, trying to find certain cases - I got to Tutor Mom and stopped listening- not because of the book or author (who brings it to a very different level/experience) not because of the narrator- My stomach couldn’t handle it - literally I’m deleting this book now - because I can’t Evan grasp how evil people can be in this world - the author really has you there - I have to leave

a little much in some areas

There are some great stories in here, some that I hadn’t heard before. The long nature of the chapters means there’s much more to listen to compared to other true crime, but some really just drag on. Ten full minutes of graphic sexual detail makes some of the stories feel like they’re bordering on sadistic porn rather than true crime. While gruesome details are to be expected in long true crime stories, the author really seems to put too much attention on sexual encounters, both consensual and not. An introduction to the story of a serial killer hardly needs to be started with an entire chapter of someone having sex with their husband.

extreme dramatization

interesting stories, however the author took massive liberties to embellish the stories. Law and Order would have gone as far as this author did.

Chilling!

I love true crime and this book doesn’t disappoint! Deeper dive into the cases than you get from podcasts. Written more like a novel with first person perspective. If you love true crime then you need this book!

The gentleman reading the book puts me to sleep.

The narrator's voice is very monotone. Even if the book was good it sounds boring. Skip this one as a audiobook.
