Outstanding British Crime Series

This is a superb series about several crimes which challenged how the British view crime and punishment. Sadly, we in the US are all to familiar with several of these. These cases shocked and horrified that country. Hear what happened and the changes made. Riveting.

A unique kind of audiobook

This is not a usual audiobook, as this is about real events of crimes. The way this was told is amazing. Interesting! Plus the added background music adds some touch to the audiobook!

Hate the Sound Effects and music.

I download books to hear them read. Not for theatrical embellishment. It is distracting and unnecessary to have music in the background and sound effects. It is really irritating having more noise. If I am reading a book I do not turn on the radio or tv. I am looking for a peaceful experience not more noise.

Inaccurate

Being a fan of true crime, thought I would give this a try. Had to stop after the second story, which was full of inaccuracies. In speaking about the Louise Woodward case (where a British nanny shook a baby) they relied heavily on quotes from defense lawyes rather than on the testimony of physicians in regards to Abusive Head Trauma (previously known as “Shaken Baby Syndrome”). As a pediatrician with training in the field of child abuse, I can tell you that the reported injuries are absolutely consistent with Abusive Head Trauma. Unfortunately, their coverage of this case appeared to have some bias, perhaps owing to the fact that this was produced by a British company.

Actually like a pod cast

If you listen to true crime pod casts you’ve probably heard all these. They all took place in England. Pretty well done, although the real recordings are pretty bad. I didnt like that each epi had to be downloaded separately, so at the end of each you have to go back in your library and start the next. Otherwise it is good for free.
