Publisher's Summary

First published in 1924, Charles E. Pearce’s account of some of the most gruesome and intriguing unsolved murders of the 19th century continues to captivate amateur sleuths to this day. Pearce guides us through a fascinating world of wicked assassinations, missed clues, ingenious stratagems, and cunning deceits in one last attempt to track down historical villains who evaded justice. It is impossible to establish the truth beyond reasonable doubt in any of the cases at this distance, but the light which Pearce sheds on the investigations and contemporary testimony, encourages us to evaluate the evidence anew and using our own Holmesian powers, to come up with new theories.

I'm sure the subject matter is of significant interest yet just 3 minutes in I feel as though I should be sat on a mat as teacher reads aloud. Truly awful narration.

Dire performance

Would you try another book written by Charles E. Pearce or narrated by Cathy Dobson?

I would avoid anything narrated by Cathy Dobson like the plague, dreadful delivery. I managed about thirty minutes before I gave up and deleted it.

Any additional comments?

A great book, but ruined by the narration.
