Addictive

I binged this entire series!!!
Super gripping and has been put together really well.
The inclusion of 999 calls reminds you that they're real cases.

I just hope the author records more!

completely enthralling

it's just like the crime shows on tv except as an audio version but it's just as compelling and well written. I feel kind im learning something, even if it's morbidly fascinating, and none of it is boring. I wish there were more honestly.

Disturbing

Many of these stories were disturbing and sad. IF is difficulty to think that even children have to live through things like this.

Just all around bad. Right away they warn you. So

Didn't like from the beginning. I don't care to be listening to
something so crass so I shut it down.
