Publisher's Summary

This is the disturbing account of 31-year-old Joanna Dennehy, mother of two; the man under her spell, Gary Stretch, 47; and the murder investigation that led them and others to the Old Bailey for trial. A true crime short, plus 17 additional true crime stories.
It was the day before Easter 2013. A man out walking his dog on a rural road near Peterborough, United Kingdom, found a dead body lying in a ditch. The grisly discovery preceded two other dead body discoveries under similar circumstances, thus launching police on a massive countrywide manhunt for a self-mutilating female psychopath with an affinity for knives and her seven-foot three-inch tall companion and accomplice. Before their bloody rampage was brought to an end, they would attempt to kill two additional innocent people who likely never even saw them coming.
This volume also includes the bizarre, compelling, and frighteningly authentic true crime stories of several headline-grabbing cases as well as more obscure cases that received little media attention. In this audiobook you will find stories about serial killer Andrew Urdiales; Jodi Arias and the murder of Travis Alexander; the random serial stabber case; a killer who wanted to be like Dexter; a blood oath murder case out of Washington State; a story about a dead man who murdered two female victims; the case of Portland's Motel Hell bloodbath; and several other real-life true crime dramas chosen especially for true crime aficionados about killers who mostly had one thing in common: They were out for blood! Eighteen stories in all.

Tasty Morsels of Murder . . .


Don't let the title mislead you - this is a wonderful compilation of MANY crime stories in addition to the main one! Each chapter is a stand alone telling of a rather obscure or lesser known case. I only recognized a very few, so it was quite enjoyable to listen to such a great variety. It's perfect for when you have small blocks of free time available versus the single titled crime stories that require considerable more attention. I loved listening to one or two chapters as I worked on various projects, and would find myself actually stopping often just to sit there and listen. Lol!

As I have mentioned before, I am really liking these "mixed sampler" true crime books... There are always several cases that shock and amaze me enough to want to go look up further information about them afterwards. However, in this case, the author has done a fairly good job of not leaving much of anything out in the way of details!! (Thank You)

I enjoyed this narrator as well. He has a calm, gentle, soothing voice as he describes some pretty horrific and gruesome events. I look forward to more done by this author AND narrator in the future. I'm already loading up my Wish List :-)

Although I was given this audiobook at no cost from the author/publisher/narrator in exchange for an honest review.... I can honestly (and easily) say that I liked this one!

Short Form True Crime!

Any additional comments?

Gary C. King never lets me down when it comes to true crime. 'Out for Blood' is another one of his successes! This book includes many short true crime stories; these are especially good for when you don't want to invest 10 hours into one story! I would recommend this compilation to anyone who enjoys true crime.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
