Publisher's Summary

From the assassination of President William McKinley on September 6, 1901, to the mass killing at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, the 20th century saw many murderous events that are difficult to contemplate but have become a part of the national history. This reference book is divided into three parts. Part One, arranged chronologically, details 53 of the most famous murder cases of the 20th century in the United States.
In Part Two, over 300 entries (alphabetically arranged by criminal) provide descriptions of crimes and are subdivided into male, female, and juvenile murderers; pair and group murderers; hate crime murderers; and school killings. Part Three features crime events related to over 40 selected victims. Cross references guide the reader to additional information. An index is included.

A lot of info.

I did enjoy listening, but I found that it was a lot of stuff to process, and at a fast pace. It was not what I expected. On the bright side, I can listen to it again, because I know there were parts that I surely missed.

I do recommend this audiobook. A person just has to really be focused. The stories are very fast paced. Maybe less stories, and more details on those crimes would suit me better. We are all different, so maybe another listener will find it at his, or her pace.

Bravo Mr R.Barrie Flowers and Loraine Flowers. Good choice in the narrator. A lot of research done!

Keep up the good writing.

- molly "I love to read, but my job as a truck driver does not allow me to indulge as much as I would love to. Audible has been a dream come true. I enjoy many hours of listening to a variety of fantastic books. Thanks Audible."

Fascinating subject matter. Uninspiring execution.

Book is presented in a litany of facts and brief synopses of murderers from the 20th century. Quite a few times names and crimes were repeated, making things redundant and making me wish more details of these crimes were presented instead. There is no narrative, lending an air of tediousness while listening.

Narrator has a nice voice, but his pronunciation of locales needs work.
