Summary

#1 Amazon New Release! - Terrifying true crime stories

True Crime is hot right now, with true crime books, TV shows, and podcasts topping lists of readers, viewers, and listeners across the country. Eric Brach's new book Double Lives: True Tales of the Criminals Next Door offers terrifying true stories about the criminals hidden among us and the banality of evil and crime, elevated by its frank discussion of the nation-wide criminal scourge of the moment: opioid addiction.

Double Lives chronicles the very monsters who walk unnoticed among us - even serial killers like Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, or John Wayne Gacy. They are neighbors and students, professionals and friends living out criminal double lives. Double Lives is both a nonfiction exposé and a nationwide search that details the exploits of some of the worst criminals in recent American history, all of whom succeeded in going undetected for years while perpetrating one crime after another… and all in their own hometowns. Gender? Race? Age? Socioeconomic class? It doesn’t matter. All stripes of people from all walks of life are profiled in this true crime roller-coaster.

At the same time, the author provides a personal look at opioid addiction and its current effects right alongside these binge-worthy tales of two-faced criminals caught and incarcerated, making Double Lives a sensational yet sobering listen.

If you're a fan of true crime and serial killer books such as Pretty Little Killers, Mind Hunter, or The Big Book of Serial Killers you'll love Double Lives.

Fun, interesting, excellent reader

George Newburn is a fantastic narrator. I loved his performance of Road to Jonestown and was happy to hear him again here.

If you like true crime podcasts, you'll be interested to hear some new and familiar stories. Definitely worth the credit. Will listen to again.

Not what you are expecting.

The stories are short and, often, merely describe the criminal or deranged part of the perpetrators’ lives with no real discussion about how it contrasted with a semblance of a normal life. There’s also a lot of side tracking to a personal story of a friend that, while sad, doesn’t really fit the overall theme all that well. It kind of reads like someone recalling an episode of Dateline they saw a month ago. Some facts but not really any impact beyond, ‘Oh, that’s kind of a wild story...’
