True Crime fans....Enjoy.

What made the experience of listening to The Faceless Villain: A Collection of the Eeriest Unsolved Murders of the 20th Century: Volume One the most enjoyable?

The range of different unsolved murders. Also, As a true crime fan there were plenty that i had NEVER heard of.

What did you like best about this story?

There was not one particular aspect of the story that i enjoyed most... but the most fascinating unsolved murder was the one that involved the "R.M Qualtrough" character.

What about Jenny Ashford’s performance did you like?

Jenny's actual performance is as always that her voice sounds clear.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nope. Although it made me dismayed that so many of these crimes went unsolved because of technicalities.

Any additional comments?

Thrilled there will be an additional 2 volumes.
