Written by: Jack Rosewood

Length: 3 hrs and 5 mins
I am a true crime junky the human mind as always had a hold on me from the way people think they can get away with things to how they plan it out and not see the flaws of the plan. I already knew some of what is in this audio and learned a lot I had not.
Mr. White did a wonderful job on the narration. He did a few character voices which were really good but most of the book is about facts and there is no need for them. He has a very pleasant voice that really adds to the detail of this audio. He gave the facts as they are but with interest like he really enjoyed learning the facts as much as I did. There are no repeats of words, nor any background noise, there are no volume changes. The music fits the story when it is used it isn’t over powering and blends very well. I thought his performance was great and he added a lot to the story with his tones and emotions. I look forward to listening to more of his work.
The author has put a lot of time doing his research from what I can tell he has it all down. He made the stories very interesting pulling the reader in. There were crimes I had never heard of which I really enjoyed. The cold cases were great with interesting facts on how they were solved many times years later. Laci Peterson broke my heart all over again for her and her unborn child. Most of the facts I knew but the author gave me some I didn’t. Robert Blake who I always loved as an actor and watched all his shows. His story was eye opening, somehow I thought he went to jail but after listening to his I remembered he got away with it. I truly believe he did the crime.
Jack Kevorkian really surprised me I had no idea it was due to him that laws were changed. I remember him well and his cockiness. I do agree with him when if I was in the same place as some of his patients I would want the right to die. I know some do not feel this way but for us that do we have to somehow look up to the doctor for doing what he felt was right helping those in pain find a end in peace. Out of all the stories I found this one the most interesting. Mr. Rosewood did an outstanding job giving the information to really pull the reader in giving me a story I totally enjoyed.
I will never understand the two brothers who killed their parents for money and how they lived after they were killed. It is mind blowing but then all killers blows one mind to their way of thinking and the reason behind it.
I found this to be a very good read with wonderful interesting fact. I had forgotten some so it was nice to review them. Others were new and very interesting. I am looking forward to listening/reading more of his work.
