Straightforward, and, in the end, unnecessary.
Not sure why I decided to listen to this - I'm too susceptible to late night Daily Deal emails. This is a more-or-less straightforward telling of the investigation of a horrific crime. It's a strange length - not long enough to be really detailed about anything, and with no deep investigation or analysis beyond what one could garner from some quick web-browsing. The additional detail that IS there is kind of strange - long and stereotyped descriptions of Bathesda, of Apple as a soulless hawker of "baubles" (though one can later understand why someone might might misplace some anger towards Apple), and other such generalities. But where there seems to be opportunity to explore the personalities involved more deeply, we get very little. So... if you really want to hear about this crime, and haven't read anything else (even brief news reports) about it, it's OK to listen to while running or washing the dishes. But five minutes on the web will get you at least as much satisfaction and sense of what happened.

Short and not even remotely sweet
While the narration was a bit grating, this true story about an almost fictitiously horrific crime was gripping. I had to listen all the way through, start to finish, just to find out how it all ended.
