this covers three cases, but the first case is the majority of the book. for once, it's not about murder, but a serial bank robber. he is so interesting and his background that led him to do it.

I listened to this one on a whim, and wow. It just goes deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. The murderer is so cunning and spins so many stories it really had me guessing until the end. One of the best true crime narratives I've listened to on audible.

This was a terrifying listen, how long he got away with what he did. Some parts of it were hard for me to listen to. The narrative was well done and so was the story telling.

Another great and well researched listen from Ann Rule. The story of Rolf Neslund should be turned into a film, it was crazy. One of the best from her anthologies - for the stories alone.

I binge listen to these anthologies, they're so interesting and the cases are obscure and often I haven't heard anything about them before. Ann Rule does such a great job researching, and drawing modern-day parallels for older cases.

I love these anthologies by Ann Rule. You get a few stories out of one book and it's great for the busy person. These crimes were unique to me and sort of flabbergasting. Def worth a listen. I enjoy this narrator for the most part but she has some odd pronunciations of words that stands out. Lived for instances she'll pronounce like live music, live-ed, when she means he lived.

good narrator but bad audio

I could hear background noise, mic pops and more. was very distracting and made it hard to get through the book. I've heard the narrator before, he's good. the book is ok, but author doesn't have the flare for story telling that John Douglas does. he's sometimes too descriptive.

I had never heard much about this killer and this book really provides a comprehensive overview of everything. Super interesting listen. Does a good job of sharing the details without overdoing it.

Be warned this book gets into more graphic detail about sexual assault than most. Covers some cases I didn't know about before, takes a new perspective on ones I did. I enjoy the narrator as well. Overall, solid true crime overview book.
