In this addition to the True Crime Stories series, you will follow police investigators as they enlist the aid of profilers to solve the infamous Phoenix Canal murders more than 20 years after they happened. You'll hear about two shocking cases where teenagers thought it would be a good idea to kill someone for fun. After having their fun, the murderous teenagers were promptly arrested and served a good helping of justice.
Some of the cases in this audiobook can only be described as bizarre, like the case of Katherine Knight, who was an extremely violent woman and cannibal. She is profiled along with the story of the sideshow "freak", Grady Stiles Junior. As you can imagine, you will surely keep listening intently once you begin to discover what drove these killers to go to the extreme that they did.
As with previous volumes in this series by Rosewood, these are article-length case summaries that cover the basics, but omit much detail. These are particularly interesting cases and I like Rosewood's presentation, but I'd like more information and clarification. Also, a few of the cases are unresolved.
Kevin Kollins performs competently. He seems to have settled in nicely reading this series.
NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
