Title: True Crime Stories Volume 12
Author: Jack Rosewood
Narrator: Kevin Kollins
In the following book you will be introduced to twelve shocking true crime cases that will keep you engaged as you become disturbed by the depths of the depravity some of these criminals have demonstrated. These 12 cases cover 100 years of crime history over several different countries, demonstrating once more that serious crime is a phenomenon that knows no boundaries.
One of the major themes of this volume is crimes against the most vulnerable people in our society, including the elderly, and the young. You will hear about a case in Indiana where a 12-year-old girl was brutally tortured and murdered, not by a deranged pedophile or a career criminal, but by girls her own age who let their undeveloped minds and peer pressure get out of hand.
The bizarre case of a serial killer who targeted elderly women in Australia is also profiled, demonstrating that not only are killers driven by diverse motives, many of which will be impossible for most of us to understand, but also that not all serial killer victims are society’s “throw aways.” You will also hear about two contestants for the “worst parent of all-time award.” These two separate cases involved men, who instead of protecting and caring for their children, ultimately played major roles in the horrible, painful deaths of their children.
Educate yourself on the world of true crime and learn that not everything is always as it seems. Follow the criminal investigations as detectives from around the world broke some of the most baffling true crime cases of the last 100 years.
A rundown of 12 different crimes, most of which involved teenagers or were perpetrated against them. Sometimes, it’s really shocking to see just how destructive youth can be.
Informative and short, this is a recommended listen for true crime fans looking to expand their knowledge of serial killers.
As always, the narrator has a smooth reading pace that makes it easy to absorb the information.
