Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Gregg Olsen and true crime journalist Kevin M. Sullivan travel down a bizarre trail of murder into notorious Pennsylvania. A seemingly normal husband father of two decides to kill young girls after storming an Amish schoolhouse, and sex many have been the prime motivator. A young high school student has a secret desire for murder, and decides a middle-of-the-night visit to his best friend’s house will do nicely to satiate his hunger to kill. A seedy individual living in an even seedier part of Philadelphia decides to populate his basement with kidnapped women for sex and the bearing of children, and it is death to those who do not submit.

misleading title

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Only a small part of the listen was related to the amish murders. Want followed was two detailed accounts of horrifying torture and murder. I hope I don't have nightmares tonight. I finally did the adult thing and quit listening.

What could Gregg Olsen and Kevin Sullivan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

They could have made the Amish schoolhouse murders. the focus of their book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin Pierce’s performances?


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

probably. I can't enumerate those at this time.

Any additional comments?

Your editors should have caught this.

If you like true crime, you have to listen to this

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook to a friend!! If you like true crime, this is very interesting. The stories flow and you can clearly picture the story taking place.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Marie Roberts was my favorite character. Although the main story is not about her, you can't help but to feel some empathy for her. She woke up one morning and her life was normal. In that one day, not only did she lose her husband, but he committed a horrible crime, and she had to deal with the guilt of the crime that he committed.

What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

While Kevin spoke clearly, I did not think that he had a voice that would keep you interested while listening to a long book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was not a particular moment that moved me. Each story brought out so many emotions. I would go from happy to sad to mad to revulsion.

Any additional comments?

The only thing that I would have changed about this book is the title. It is titled the Amish Schoolhouse Murders but there are 4 stories in all, not just the story about the Amish Schoolhouse Murders.
