In the following true crime anthology, you will listen to 12 true crime stories that have baffled investigators and captured the imagination of the public for years. Among some of the more shocking stories is a trio of mass murder cases from around the world. You will be intrigued to hear how Ronald DeFeo Junior mercilessly gunned down six members of his family in cold blood and how two other cases of mass murder that although not well-known in the United States, shocked the small countries where they took place. You will also follow the criminal investigations of some high-profile cases, such as that of best-selling author Michael Peterson, and see how they were resolved.
Some of the true crime murder cases profiled in this volume can only be described as bizarre. You will be introduced to Elifasi Msomi, a failed Zulu witch doctor who became a notorious serial killer, notorious for keeping some of his victims' blood for various rituals. You will also hear about two potential curses that sent many of the people involved with their respective cases to early graves. Finally, the strange case of Robert Dirscherl is profiled. The authorities initially ruled Dirscherl's death a suicide, but after several decades it now appears that the death may be a case of true murder and not suicide.
If you are interested in learning more about man's dark side, then start listening to this book. But be warned, some of the murder stories you will hear about will be shocking and disturbing. Despite being disturbed by many of these cases, you will also find this volume extremely intriguing and exciting!

These types of rapid nonfiction books are the best! They include FASCINATING stories, interesting facts and details that I had never heard before and personal correspondences from either the murderer and/or victims.
I love how precise the author is, but at the same time includes details that are truly interesting for the reader. I have read/listened another volume and it was just as great!
A few good stories
The first two stories in the book were good and made me interested. But the next two weren't as good and kinda lulled me into abandoning it; at least for now.
Sure. Since the first two stories were interesting to me, I would like to believe the author is able to write more stories which would suit my taste.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio book by the author, narrator, or publisher.
