Mark Twain wrote: Schoolboy days are no happier than the days of after life, but we look back upon them regretfully because we have forgotten our punishments at school, and how we grieved when our marbles were lost and our kites destroyed-because we have forgotten all the sorrows and privations of that canonized epoch and remember only its orchard robberies, its wooden sword pageants, and its fishing holidays.

In the following true crime anthology, you will be introduced to some of the most tragic crime cases in modern history. The 12 crimes profiled in this volume will keep you listening, although sometimes due to the shocking nature you will undoubtedly not want to listen...
The primary theme of this volume is youth violence and some of the factors that have driven kids to kill. Some of the reasons were as shocking as the crimes themselves, such as the case of the two 13-year-old boys who killed one of the boy’s grandmother so they could buy some marijuana and have a pizza party. You will also listen to tales of teens who killed just for fun, such as Don Collins, while the motives for other teen murderers remain a mystery.
The tragic case of the murder of the Doss family highlights that sometimes people, even teenagers, don’t need a reason to kill. Along with the profiles of teen killers are other chapters that examine cold case murder mysteries and other cases that can only be described as strange or bizarre. No matter the content, each of the 12 chapters are riveting and will keep you wanting to continue to listen.
So come along for a journey into the depraved criminal mind. The world you are about to enter may frighten and shock you, but you will also be intrigued as you learn what makes some of the worst killers tick...
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 nominally interesting cases, primarily due to the young age of the perpetrators, but I'd like more information and clarification. Also, a few of the cases are unresolved. Rosewood should do a bit more research, and for some cases, hold off publishing until the case has been resolved.
Kevin Kollins performs competently. He seems to have settled in nicely reading this series.
