Publisher's Summary

Every year, we look back in horror at the sheer evil mankind is capable of, and 2017 was no different.
Across the world, but particularly in the United States, startlingly horrific crimes have almost become commonplace, causing us to double-lock our doors at night and look over our shoulders, wondering if we're safe, no matter how crowded or well-lit our location is.
In this true crime release, we've compiled some of the most gripping and gruesome crime stories of 2017. Some of the horrible stories you will hear about includes: 

A Florida serial killer stalked a close-knit suburb of Tampa, killing Seminole Heights residents seemingly at random.
A member of a neo-Nazi organization used his vehicle to kill a protestor in Charlottesville, Virginia, more than 50 years after the world defeated Hitler's racist rise to power.
A couple was sentenced to death for brutalizing a 10-year-old girl for years, beating her, depriving her of food, forcing her to walk on the hot pavement of a sizzling summer in Arizona, only to let her die in an airtight box overnight, her punishment for eating a Popsicle without asking after sweltering in 115-degree heat.
Two young girls were smart enough to record pictures and audio of a man suspected in their deaths, evidence that will hopefully soon solve their murders.
A blood-soaked man carried his mother's decapitated head into a grocery store, attacking a clerk and stabbing him as well before being apprehended from police.
The UK was rocked by terrorist bombings that turned joyous moments deadly in an instant.
The death of Charles Manson gave us an opportunity to look back at the bloody mayhem inspired by a murderous man with a messiah complex.
Keep the lights on, Dear Listener, and welcome to 2017's most horrifying true stories.

THE Murder Yearbook . . .

I actually loved this books whole concept of giving you the basic rundown of the past years true crime highlights. I thought for SURE that I wasn't going to be too surprised, and certainly there couldn't be *anything* that I've missed in the news - but I was wrong!

Most will have heard about SOME of these stories - but perhaps didn't know the specific details, or like myself, will end up saying out loud Whoaaa...I didn't hear about THAT one! More than once.

Of particular surprise to me was hearing about Charles Manson's will - who he left all his things to - including his body! And the ridiculous "cough syrup made me do it" defense. (making note to remember that) Also a few tidbits concerning the unsolved Delphi murders of Abby and Libby. Just to touch on a few.

I think I will probably have to check out the 2016 edition to see what else I've missed now.

This audiobook was provided to me at no cost in exchange for an honest review - and honestly speaking, if you want to know about all the crazy people out there that you've been missing in the news, then this is for you!

Homicide & True Crime Stories of 2017

True Crime 2017
Jack Rosewood

This is another great crime anthology from this author.I have heard of most of these but had pushed them to the back of my mind. It was a vivid reminder of evil in our world.

The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Kevin Kollins does a good job as always, however a first small complaint from me. You need to double check pronunsiation of cities. Olathe in Kansas, is pronounced (Oh-lath-a.) Everytime I heard it mispronounced I cringed, and that carried over thru the next few cases. It may just be me but it does bother me.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
