Summary

Evil lurks from the scorched earth of West Texas to the suffocating bayous of Mississippi...where darkness is deadly and screams go unheard. Southern Fried Crime is comprised of harrowing crime tales from Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi, all from the files of the New York Times best-selling Notorious USA series. Meet homicidal lovers, murderous moms, enchanting black widows, hidden serial killers, and insane mass murderers as four of America's most beloved crime writers - Ron Franscell, Gregg Olsen, Rebecca Morris, and Stephanie Cook - lead you on a bizarre jaunt across the sweltering crimescape of the deadly South.

Peirce is my favorite narrator!

Where does Southern Fried Crime: Notorious USA Set (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

@ the very top.

What other book might you compare Southern Fried Crime: Notorious USA Set (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi) to and why?

Narration, duration, well written, well performed

Any additional comments?

My two favorite narrators are Oakes and peirce. They can make you feel the story without getting melodramatic. I appreciate authors that don't fill thier book with cliches and overly descriptive background just to fluff the volume. Of a book is 375 pages but half of them are filled with tired overused cliches you didn't write the book you quoted junk.

Great Narration!

The writing is good, the cases are intriguing, and the Narration is well done. There were many cases I had never heard of even though I have been a true crime drama fan for years. They had a few really old cases that were interesting and funny. They provided a nice break from the gloom of grisly serial killers and mass murderers.

Can you go wrong with Gregg Olsen?

I am a true crime junkie and I stumbled upon these notorious USA stories. And since I am from the south (East Texas) I was super excited to hear this book. To be honest I would probably listen to Kevin Pierce read the phone book.

pieces

A collection of short snippets into the mind of a killer, psycho, serial, and garden variety. Not very engaging in my opinion. Would have liked some emotions, but flat affect. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator was okay.
