Summary

From the dark and bloody ground of Kentucky, to the peaceful Amish communities of Pennsylvania, to the cities and towns crisscrossing Ohio, murder and mayhem has been a part of it all. Within the pages of this latest volume in Notorious USA's New York Times best-selling series you'll discover how the unsuspecting succumbed to the evil that caught them by surprise, and what the authorities had to do to stop the madness.

Cases include Sarah Hansen, a cheerleader and all-around good kid, she met a nightmarish death. Alec Kreider: he had a hunger for murder and started with his best friend’s family and Anthony and Nathaniel Cook, a murdering duo who terrorized Toledo for years.

Good true crime collection

This a good collection of a variety of true crimes. Some I've read about others I hadnt. I like that each story was short, but long enough to tell the whole story without having to hear too many details. Narrated well also.

Kevin Pierce is the best of the best!

I just looked at my library of true crime titles and I have almost every one Kevin Pierce narrates. He is simply the best in my opinion. He is perfect for this genre. He has a way of being factual, yet compassionate in the work he is given to read. The only ones I don't have are books that would be too gruesome for me.

I also like Gregg Olsen- a lot. This collection is very good. The stories are short but in-depth, which is what I like. They give you a good backdrop into the lives of the people involved, without a lot of filler.

Excellent true crime.

Great stories about different murder cases!

Where does Unnatural Causes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a set of smaller books that are from the Notorious USA series. There are several stories included such as Donald Harvey (serial killer) , Sarah Hansen murder, Heather Teague disappearance. etc. There are quite a few more as well. It is well written and well researched. I found it to be interesting, and included stories I was not aware of, which made it even better for me! I really liked this book, as I like anthologies a lot. The stories are short and sweet, without the extra fluff. I do recommend this book!
