Publisher's Summary

This is no ordinary true crime book. If you think you've got the stomach for the most blood-curdling, sickening and downright strangest murders you will ever come across, then look no further than these pages. You have been warned...
Take, for example, Enriqueta Marti who kidnapped children from the streets of Barcelona, then boiled away their flesh and crushed their bones for ingredients for her coveted 'magic potions'.
Or take Randy Kraft, known as The Scorecard Killer, a computer genius by day and a deranged psychopath by night. Finally arrested with a corpse slumped in the passenger seat of his car, it emerged that Kraft had spent over a decade cutting up and disposing of his numerous victims along the California highways.
In this stomach-churning collection, all the stories have one thing in common - a unique bizarre twist. True crime writer James Marrison draws upon the material that has featured in the hugely successful column The Murder File in cult magazine Bizarrein order to disclose the kind of sickening deeds that are perpetrated more often than you might think, but which sometimes go largely unreported by the media. Welcome to The World's Most bizarre Murders - the most shocking true crime book you will ever read.

Interesting Book, TERRIBLE Narrator/Production

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Oh, just the narration and production. Clearly this was either sloppily done, or rushed to completion. There are many false starts, flubs and 2nd takes that should have been edited out of the final master. You'll hear the narrator read the same line two, and sometimes three times until he gets it right.


What didn’t you like about Drew Campbell’s performance?

Though his inflection is fine his mispronunciations and flubs are numerous. At first it was kind of funny to hear him say things like "Sodium Penthonol", (instead of Sodium PENTothol) and "Drink Driving", (instead of DRUNK Driving) but eventually it really annoys you and takes you out of the book. Some other gems include "Judicinal System" and Shrever Port Louisiana. Once again, this might be because the production of the audio book was rushed or sloppy. You can't blame the guy for flubbing some things or pronouncing them incorrectly if he's not familiar with them, but come on! Catch it before it gets posted to Audible!


Any additional comments?

If you can get past the terrible narration and production the content is actually fascinating. A little gory at times, but definitely interesting for the true crime fan. Also, since each chapter is self-contained and not too long it makes for a great back-and-forth-to-work kind of listen.
