An excellent example of how to handle historical cases using available documents and surviving reports from the time to create a narrative is His Bloody Project - Graeme Macrae Burnet
An awful example is The Apprentice of Split Crow Lane.
It's just a jumble of words the case, the social history, press reports and everything but the kitchen sink thrown together. So disorganised it drove me nuts.. and the tone of the narration is that of a poor quality teacher sending a class to sleep.
Sadly after 5 hours I could bear no more I had to return it for the refund - something I hate doing even mediocre books I try and struggle through hoping they'll improve but not this one!

Would you listen to The Apprentice of Split Crow Lane again? Why?
No, but only because I don't think I'd learn anything new
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Apprentice of Split Crow Lane?
Cuthbert's confession was truly harrowing to hear.
Any additional comments?
Please be prepared for some nasty details about the murder and motive. I have an interest in true crime, but I felt quite disturbed by this. I'm glad I listened to it though, as I feel I learned a lot.
