Excellent book ruined by narrator

This book was a wonderful surprise with nearly all new and unknown to me at least crimes.The authors were as always brilliant BUT the narrator was appalling! There is little or no intonation in his voice the whole way through and if not for the stories themselves being so interesting I would have given up after the first half hour. Such a pity with great material ruined in my opinion.

Curious mix

Strange mix of well known and obscure crimes making the whole thing a little hit and miss hence an average mark overall...however it was delivered by the master narrater kevin pierce who always seems to lift a story

Great value<br />

If you like true crime then this is a must have. It features a long list of pithy cases from some of the best authors in the genre.
The cases are not all very long nor suspenseful, yet they do paint a clear picture of North American crime. On that note, the quick barage of horrific depravity is sometimes too much.
The narration is clear (although slightly raspy in a noir sort of way, which I like) and professional, and the book is conveniently divided into about 120 chapters (some of these are just brief introductions). I hope more box sets like this are published. It gives you a chance to try out new authors without wasting too much time or credits.

bang for your buck!

I enjoyed this book. for the price of one credit you get 116 chapters full of the best stories from a dozen states.

I enjoyed the tales of crimes from the early 19th century (and earlier) that don't get much spotlight, and liked the fact that when it came to the big three [Gacy, Bundy, Dahmer] they didn't overshadow the other stories.

you only get a taste, but like the perfect bite, you get all you need in it. it leaves you satisfied, but not opposed to having more. several stories had updates on the status of those involved.

the decision to have Kevin Pierce narrate was masterful, he truly is one of the best narrators on the game.

being a huge true crime fan I heard a lot of stories I already knew, and heard a lot that I hadn't. I thought the section with the interview with famed criminalist Henry Lee was a great departure.

overall don't come to this book thinking you're going to have s full breakdown of every story told, it's a abridged version of an abridged version, but that doesn't mean it isn't good.
