Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of They Walk Among Us written by Benjamin and Rosanna Fitton, read by Benjamin Fitton.

A Chilling Casebook of Horrifying Hometown Crimes

How well do you really know your friends?

Neighbours, friends, doctors and colleagues. We see them every day. We trust them implicitly. But what about the British army sergeant who sabotaged his wife’s parachute? Or the lodger who took his landlady on a picnic from which she never returned? From dentists to PAs, these normal-seeming people were quietly wrecking lives, and nobody suspected a thing.

In this first book from the addictive award-winning podcast They Walk Among Us, Benjamin and Rosanna serve up small-town stories in gripping detail. They’ve hooked millions of listeners with their intricate and disturbing cases, and now they dig into 10 more tales, to provide an unforgettably sinister true-crime experience, scarily close to home.

It could happen to you.

Love this podcast, but

I got this as I am a fan of the podcast but to be honest I prefer the podcast. This book is not very long and I though the stories were not that interesting, so I was a bit disappointed with it and I am not sure if I would recommend this book.

Excellent and enjoyable listen

Although I was already very familiar with the style and content of They Walk Among Us (long time podcast fan); I have to admit the book is brilliant. Great narration, well written and an excellent mix of recent and historic cases covered. Love it!

A gripping listen.

I have been a fan of the "They Walk Among Us" podcast for a long time now, and had been looking forward to this audiobook. I am pleased to say that it hasn't disappointed! The title says it all really - although we'd like to think that killers, con artists and bad people in general are a separate breed, easily recognisable by their horns and cloven hooves, it's just not true. You've probably stood behind them in the queue at Sainsbury's, had your hair done by them, or chatted amicably over coffee!! Here we have ten stories of the monsters that walked among us before they were caught. The narration is excellent ; no surprise to those of us who are avid listeners to the podcast! If this is your introduction to "They Walk Among Us", I hope you will give the podcast a try for more of the same. Oh, and as someone used to say when winding up a much-missed crime programme, don't have nightmares, do sleep well!

Just what I wanted. and more!

I bought this audiobook after listening to the TWAU podcasts. This audiobook goes into just the right amount of detail for each crime. I listen to it during my daily commute, and several times I have sat in the car park because I've been dying to listen more! I'm really pleased with this and highly recommend!!

Excellent True Crime

Best book on U.K. True Crime in a long time. Carries over the winning formula of the highly successful podcast.

Even better than I hoped it would be

Having been a listener of the world class podcast I was delighted to hear that the super talented Fittons were bringing out a book. Their podcast is fantastic and this book is every bit as good. The choice of cases is brilliant as they are all different in their own ways meaning the book has a lovely flow. Ben is a natural voice talent and I for one was hanging on every word. I’m so happy for Ben and Rosanna and I’d recommend this book to anyone with even the smallest interest in true crime.

Good yarn but weird narration

Obviously very interesting to hear the retelling of true crime stories but the narrator was oddly robotic.

Interesting stories rather let down by narrator.

Fascinating cases included in this book but I would suggest a professional narrator in any future episodes.

Very Good

If you like the podcast, you will love this book. It’s read by Ben and the stories are ones that haven’t been covered on his podcast. He goes into just enough detail to keep the listener engaged and his voice is mesmerizing.

If you like their podcast

I’m a huge fan of this podcast, so this audio book felt like listening to many short episodes of it. The author’s telling of the stories is very dry, succinct, and focused on the facts. If you prefer your true crime with a bit more flare, this may not be for you. I personally loved it.

Great selection!

As a big fan of the podcast, I was very excited to see a book format. The cases selected for the book were very well picked (none of which have been covered on the podcast.) Benjamin Fitton's narration is, as always, Grade-A. Very well done!!
