This book (which is part of a series) is done in more of a factual narrative style rather than the typical true crime "story" (its NOT Ann Rule style). You wont get all sorts of those juicy little descriptive scenic tidbits that make you feel as though you were really there, but you certainly WILL get all the morbid details of each murder/crime he committed! The brutal things that Richard Cottingham did to these women had me clutching onto my chest and wincing. I was unfamiliar with this case before, so it was quite an introduction! Just when I thought he couldnt possibly do much worse...he did! I only wish it had been a bit longer, as I found myself wanting to know even more about this sinister maniac.
This is a great way to "sample" some of the lesser known (to me) cases, and I will certainly check out the other crime titles done by this author, since he chooses to write about the more unique killers...I really enjoyed this book.
I am not one to nit-pick a narrator, but honestly, in MY opinion, I think the narrator committed the REAL crime here, since he turned an otherwise VERY interesting book into one that made me focus instead on how he *SAID* the word SAID...which was rather strongly, distracting, and done after a (strange) pause. He would be much better suited to reading the NPR News. His delivery wasnt very appealling to me personally.
I was truly delighted to recieve this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Any additional comments?
Rosewood's telling of the story of Richard Cottingham was seamless and expedient without leaving out any essential elements. This story is as grizzly as any of the other true crime tell-alls, but Cottingham is one killer I hadn't heard of before listening to this book. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of true crime.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
