On September 28, 2000, former Indiana state trooper David Camm made a frantic call to his former colleagues in the state troopers office: He had just walked into his garage and found lying on the floor the bodies of his 35-year-old wife Kim and their two children Brad and Jill, ages seven and five. Three days later, things got worse when police arrested David Camm for the triple murder. Soon new stories started emerging about mistresses and violent bursts of temper. And as the ugly truth about the Camms' marriage got uglier and the evidence against David started piling up, two families - and the community at large - took positions at opposite sides of a yawning and bitter divide. Was David Camm a dedicated, conscientious public servant - the victim of unspeakable tragedy who was being railroaded by an unfair system? Or was he a cold-hearted murderer who earned his three murder convictions and every one of the 195 years behind bars to which he was sentenced?

I used to actually read books, held them in my hand, left grubby marks over the pages complimenting the coffee rings on the cover. No more
The tone of the narrator more than the words themselves made me feel that I was being subtly but annoyingly persuaded to see David Camm as Guilty despite the evidence. This put me off and left me feeling somewhat cheated. Intellectually Dishonest, what a shame.
Was vaguely familiar with this case having seen a televised reconstruction but found this account to be both comprehensive and instructive. The narration is excellent and adds the weight and kudos necessary to convey the heinousness of the crime.
This is one of the best books I ever listened to. An unexpected ending!
"Good true crime"
I just really enjoy true crime genres
All the different characters
Not sure but it was good
Hate this question.
This was pretty good, but not my favorite. It was a little too long for me.
Very well written. A very Surprising end. So sad for both of these families. Will look up verdict on Internet.
"Hard to like the story due to poor narration."
Definitely not Gildart Jackson. Not sure about John Glatt.
Terrible! I have had trouble enjoying performances in the past, but never one as bad as this. It was difficult to decide if the book was written well as the narration was so bad.
I almost turned it off early on due to the narration, but was the only book I had downloaded for my travel time. Once a couple of hours into it, I thought it would get better. The storyline kept me going, but the narration never got better.
strangely disapointing. it is reasonably well written but it may simply be that glatt didn't anticipate the final twist and of course there is nothing he can do about that. it is true crime, after all :-)
"The narrator made it a chore to finish."
Not the best choice for narration. His American accent was difficult to listen to.
"Ture Crime & Frightening"
A good true-crime account that rivals most stories out there-
No particular character -
The main character is frightening and dilusional
No extreme reaction - a good book to listen to on a trip
