Terrible

Poor narrative. No criminology. Awful. A disjointed description of criminal cases with a smattering of lay psychology.

Great snapshot of true crime stories

Brilliant overview of many crime stories. Short, sharp and to the point. Although it doesn't necessarily go into too much depth on all cases, this provides bitesize information on many cases you may never have heard of. Great for any true crime buff!
