This was my first time reading these authors, and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by Dark Heart. Like many others, I was already somewhat familiar with the case. I'm a huge 'audi-holic' and an even bigger true crime fan, so I really enjoyed the way the narrative was presented in a thorough, but concise manner. The authors did an excellent job balancing the razor-sharp line between focusing on the defendants, while not losing sight of the victim's story.
The narration was very smooth and comfortable to listen to. I only gave 4 stars here because there are some narrators out there that earn the 5th star imo. Nevertheless I like Paul Costanzo, and hope to hear more from him.
Overall I give Dark Heart 5 stars because there are a shortage of great new true crime books in print and audio formats such as this, and this story was well told and it's clear that the authors did their research. Despite the fact that they were not able to obtain more participation from Lizzy's family, they made an effort to give them a voice. It give us a glimpse into her horrific final moments as well as the dark and twisted world of Cat and Seth. If you enjoy a solid true crime story with suspense, real emotion, and a bit of the bizarre then you will enjoy Dark Heart. I look forward to more titles from these two!
I WISH this audio book was given to me for free in return for am honest review! Where do I sign up :p

I prefer my true crime to be verbatim quotes that are told from interrogation rooms and court transcripts rather then summary after summary of the events which can leave room for Misinterpretation. But in whole, it was not terrible.
