Summary

It is no secret that true crime murder stories are not for the faint of heart. They can lead you to double-check your windows and doors at night, and question everything you thought or believed about human nature. Yet they are intriguing and fascinating at the same time.

What is it that makes us different from those who take the lives of others? That is a question that many ask themselves, and these true crime stories help to identify the method and psychology behind some of the most terrifying killers in modern history.

This set includes three true crime books, volumes 1-3, and each is filled with a variety of true crime murder cases, including spree killers and massacres, some of which are yet to be solved. You are taken through the background of the story, the murders, and the criminal investigations that took place.

Each true crime anthology in this collection will leave you to ponder whether the perpetrators of these crimes were really monsters. When you learn of the background of these killers, the age-old question of whether a serial killer is born to kill will be at the forefront of your mind.

Explore the stories behind the murders in these true crime volumes, the anger, the horror, and the sadism, inflicted by each killer. Feel for the victims, their families, and the investigators who had to deal with each case. And don't be surprised if you have to sleep with the light on.

An interesting collection for true crime fans

I have always had an interest in true crime fiction and especially hearing about unsolved cases from the past. This is an amazing set for true crime fanatics as it makes you personally think and evaluate the crimes themselves from both the killer's and victims perspective. Each story gives a detailed insight into the mind / psychology of the killer and what makes them carry out such hideous acts . I was given this book by the author/narrator in return for an honest and unbiased review

3 Books full of Crime

I always love getting these types of books, they tend to always hold a few stories that I was unaware of and this is no different. I've only finished the first book in the collection but I am gripped. There is just something about True Crime that draws me in and Jack and Rebbeca do so well telling these stories in their writing. Herschel and Grangent offer a brilliant narration as well.

I just love true crime books!

I am not sure why I am hooked on True crime books. I think its because i always want there to be a reason why people do these kind of things, and these books let us kind of look into to their minds.
this book has some good crimes in it. Some are chilling. some are unsolved. Its a good listen and i would recommend this to anyone who likes true crimes.
the narrator does a fine job reading this book to us.

Interesting

Love this collection.

If you’re looking to learn more about mysterious cases this is the true crime listen for you. The cases inside were mostly ones that I've never heard of before, but ones that I am looking forward to doing more research on. This book gives the basics of what happened in each case, who the suspect is, and other important information, but it doesn’t really go in depth. I would recommend this piece for someone who is just getting into true crime. Honestly, I had hoped there would be a bit more information for each. Still a great collection though.

Narration was steady and the cadence worked well with the author’s writing style.

Good assortment of cases

This is an interesting collection of cases covering many states. Most are fairly recent, with a couple much older.
Not all cases have been resolved but most have.
Narrator is okay, not my favorite. He's a bit robotic and mispronounces some very common words.
They broke the mold with Kevin Pierce.
I enjoyed this collection a lot. There are a lot of stories. Jack Rosewood is a favorite of mine.

One reviewer mentioned wondering why they liked true crime. I have wondered that too. as I detest any kind of violence and can't watch it on TV or movies.
However, I am interested in Psychology, Law, and police investigations. While this book doesn't contain any trial
material it's still riveting. In book/audio form it's more palatable for me.

I was given this at no charge in return for an honest review. All opinions are mine. Thank you!

Great Value!

Great books but the narrator kind of ruined it for me. I'm a big fan of true crime books and you can't go wrong with 3 books for 1 credit! Overall a great deal, I recommend it if you're wanting something spooky to listen to.

An Excellent True Crime Collection

This is a collection of true crimes committed through the years and even other countries. I enjoy the research Jack Rosewood does for his books. The saying "truth is stranger than fiction" is so true here. Some of the cases are solved while others are not but all are unnerving because they are all true. I found the narration done very well. Herschel J. Grangent Jr. has a nice voice and reads at a good pace. I'm not sure why others find his narration horrible or difficult to listen to because I thought he did very well. Anyway, make sure to listen to the sample before getting this book to make sure you don't mind his narration style.

Terrible narration makes it horrible

I'm so bummed that I couldn't finish the book because the content is amazing but the narration completely ruins it for me. I really tried to stick to it, because again the content is top-notch and very thrilling but since it is being told in such a non-pleasing way, you just can't stick with it.

Narrator Sucks

I love true crime. Too bad this selection was ruined by the worst voice actor ever. Do Not Buy This. The dude’s voice is so boring, you WILL fall asleep in your car after three redbulls.

You’ve been warned.
