Publisher's Summary

A serial killer - your neighbor, friend, even your spouse?

Serial killers: Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, and Jeffrey Dahmer are often the first names that spring to mind. Many people assume serial killers are primarily an American phenomenon that came about in the latter part of the 20th century. But such assumptions are far from the truth. Serial killers have been around for a very long time and can be found in every corner of the globe - and they're not just limited to the male gender either. Some of these predators have been caught and brought to justice whereas others have never been found, let alone identified. Serial killers can be anywhere. And scarier still, they can be anyone.

Edited by acclaimed author and anthologist Mitzi Szereto, The Best New True Crime Stories: Serial Killers reveals all-new accounts of true crime serial killers from the contemporary to the historic. The international list of contributors includes award-winning crime writers, true-crime podcasters, journalists, and experts in the dark crimes field such as Martin Edwards, Lee Mellor, Danuta Kot, Craig Pittman, Richard O. Jones, Marccie Rendon, Mike Browne, and Vicki Hendricks.

If you are a fan of true crime books such as I'll Be Gone in the Dark, Mindhunter, The Devil in the White City, or Peter Vronsky's Sons of Cain; you will want to listen to Mitzi Szereto's The Best New True Crime Stories: Serial Killers. This book will leave you wondering if it's ever really possible to know who's behind the mask you're allowed to see.

Great story, lousy performance

While the book itself was absolutely fascinating, the narrators about put me to sleep. Both Mulligan and Burns sound like the auto-reader capability on an iPhone.

Worst Narration Ever!

I couldn't keep listening past the first two chapters. It felt like I was listening to robots read.

Inconsistent

Overall, this was a decent read. It suffers from inconsistent writing quality. Some of the sections were meandering and didn’t seem to maintain a narrative thread. Others were just fine. The narration was good, but nothing special.

A whole lot of nothing!

Very hard to follow and cases were all all over the place. Not very engaging at all.

Some good stories

There were a few stories I thought were good but most not so much. A few were interesting and I did enjoy them.

I thought the narrators did a good job, one place was repeated beside that it was a clear audio with no volume changes, I enjoyed their voices and had no trouble listen to them for house at a time.
