Publisher's Summary

Uncover the secrets of the world's cruelest criminal cults.

How did Charles Manson inspire his "family" to launch a campaign of murder? What twisted ideology lay behind horrific events like the Waco Siege, Aum Shinrikyo's poison-gas attack on the Tokyo metro, and the mass suicides and murders of Jonestown? Why did the suicidal adherents of Heaven's Gate believe doomsday was at hand? How did the idealistic commune of Rajneeshpuram collapse into shocking controversies, involving biological terrorism and attempted murder? The shocking truth about some of the most disturbing criminal cults that have ever existed are discussed in this audiobook.

Cults Uncovered explores these and many more strange and disturbing factions and sects from all over the world to expose terrifying stories of manipulation, coercion, abuse, and murder.

Hard to listen

I found myself correcting the narrator, over and over. She mispronounced so many word it ruined the book for me. I can’t finish. Doesn’t anyone edit this stuff, once or twice is bad, but constantly is unforgivable. Example, Boulevard is pronounced by this narrator “boo la tard”, south is “sath”. Just ridiculous
