    Good information, poor presentation The crimes covered in this volume are truly disturbing, shocking and horrific. Some are covered more thoroughly than others, but the reader can Google any case for which more information is sought. The writing was quite unprofessional with incomplete sentences and inconsistent usage of verb tenses. Everything in the book has already happened, so there is no need to use present tense. I would like to see more books in this series, but hopefully in better shape bef Good information, poor presentation The crimes covered in this volume are truly disturbing, shocking and horrific.

    3.5 stars I haven't heard of the stories in this book. When I tend to search for true crime, I get the same stories over and over. While the writing is not excellent, it's not completely terrible either. I've read worse. Some of the stories though made chills run down my back. Actually chills are still running down my back. I will probably read the second volume after I get some happy stories. 3.5 stars I haven't heard of the stories in this book.

    Another example of why Jason Neil is so freaking awesome! Leave it to Jason Neil to find stories that I’ve never heard of and the ones I did hear of, they work told the way Jason tells them. He holds no punches and doesn’t keep details to himself because he thinks his readers are too soft to hear the gritty detail. That is why Jason Neil is my new favorite true crime rider. From the youngest serial killer in Britain who happens to be a 10-year-old girl, to the head of security for a well liked a Another example of why Jason Neil is so freaking awesome!

From the youngest serial killer in Britain who happens to be a 10-year-old girl, to the head of security for a well liked a van Jellicle preacher who was so into loving God he thought sending his family there was a great idea or maybe it was because of his girlfriend? To the pregnant woman who wasn’t pregnant and had to take another woman’s baby, unfortunately the other woman didn’t live to tell the tale. The stores are so good and I mean no disrespect to the victims when I say that. What I mean is it was just amazed you the things people will do to try and get their way. Talk about selfish people. You must read this book if you are a true crime fan you need to get on the Jason Neil bandwagon and have his books in your library you will not regret getting them. He is the only true crime author that I can think of that goes the extra mile to get not so heard of stories. The only one I can think of that did that is AN rule, may she rest in peace. So Jason Neil is right on time.

    Great quick read Very informative and interesting. Made me think about the justice system and how it seems to make no sense. I recommend.

    Yikes -- there is a little girl in here named Mary who is just truly terrifying! This is a collection of eight true crime cases. Each case is briefly discussed, although enough details are given to give you a sense of the crime (in case you want to do future research). It makes for a breezy, if not disturbing, read.

    4.5/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐ --- 🐾🐶📖 Little story before I give my review! I was reading this while walking home from school and I walk through a kinda ally way sorta thing but it's very open still. Anyways, as I was walking, the story (from this book) I was reading got to the actually killing and what this particular killer did to the body and suddenly a dog began barking at me and I SCREAMED. Aloud.. and like 5 people turned their heads to look at me as if I was insane or being murdered myself. 😵🤭 Hope that 4.5/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐ --- 🐾🐶📖 Little story before I give my review!

It was quick to get through even though I spaced it out to read when I didnt have a physical book with me. - I gave it 4.5 stars because although it was VERY good and had all the elements that it should have being a collection of true crime stories, I wouldn't read it again so it lost that 0.5 star. - This book is a collection of eight crime stories that have happened in real life, such as the story of Mary Bell, which I knew about prior to reading this book. It was chilling and a bit disgusting at times. It made me tear up. I highly recommend this if you like crime tv shows and movies. It let's you dive into the crime details and tells you the sentence that the criminal(s) were given. Overall an amazing and interesting read. 🚫❌‼❗‼ --- #bookreader #book #bookishlife #Bookstagram #book #bookaddict #booksbooksbooks #bookrecommendations #crimeandmystery #crimenovels #truecrime #murders #murderer #stalking #bookstores #bookstagramrecs #booksofoctober #halloweenspook #autumnleaves #autumnvibes #bookishvibes #bookishaesthetic #bookishfriends #scaredofdogs

    As previously mentioned, a goo book I don’t actually know why this book was recommended to me since I already read the whole series but there you go, it was and now I’m writing this to show I have read it. it’s a good book if a bit disturbing as is the whole set. I think the author has done a pretty good job of researching these cases and at least you get all the facts instead of a watered down version of what happened. I prefer that, just because we’re not told all the facts, doesn’t mean it did As previously mentioned, a goo book I don’t actually know why this book was recommended to me since I already read the whole series but there you go, it was and now I’m writing this to show I have read it. it’s a good book if a bit disturbing as is the whole set.

I prefer that, just because we’re not told all the facts, doesn’t mean it did’t happen after all and since crimes are reported each and every day in the news I reckon even the most sensitive soul is immune from the more gruesome details by now. A good book if you like to try to figure out why somebody would do such things. I only hope readers don’t find inspiration in these pages for committing crimes o their own.

    Interesting book! This book was fascinating. It detailed the crimes of serial killers as well as other killers. The reasons for the crimes were as varied as greed and sex. I found a few typographical errors in the book. I highly recommend it to other true crime readers.

    3.5 Stars These stories were quite interesting. I've read many true crime stories over the years and these are not ones commonly found. Several I had never read before or in the detail given. These are not sophisticated essays. They are an easy to read and understand set of true crime stories. If you want more on these stories you can easily do more research on your own. But what Mr. Neal has provided are very compelling and disturbing readings. I plan to read Jason Neal's Second book soon. 3.5 Stars These stories were quite interesting.

    NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART This book is a crash course on true crime cases, definitely not for the faint of heart. There's a lot of detail here, and I sometimes felt like I was on overload because the stories were so short, so reading one after the other after the other could sometimes give you a lot of gory details. Not to be read before bed, that's for sure. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART This book is a crash course on true crime cases, definitely not for the faint of heart.

    I love true crime stories. However, sometimes they are too long and drawn out. Jason writes more like the "Cliff Notes" versions of these stories and before you know, the books are done. Very easy and quick to read, stories that I've heard of. LOVED it~! I love true crime stories. However, sometimes they are too long and drawn out.

    Great details Very interesting enticed me to read more best details even though many others might not like. Sad that these things did happen some people are truly disturbed.maybe understanding could help prevent. Loved reading the book will continue the series.

    This is a good read. Interesting and informative. However, some of the cases I found very disturbing and found it difficult to continue reading. But, it’s the truth and you will read details and facts of the case that the media wouldn’t dare reveal.

    Book.5 I don’t dislike anything about this book. I thought it was in perfect detail although the chapters made me cringe just hearing the details of what happened to the victims. Keep them coming though. I need to read book 3 now.

    I enjoyed this book Very well written, and interesting cases. There are a couple of cases I had read before, but the author delved a bit more into the murderers past thus allowing the reader to learn more about the cases, as well as, the killer.

    Good mixture of cases, some well known some not so well known. If you like ?True crime drama then you will enjoy this. i found it easy to read and none of the problems others seemed to see, and Im quite fussy! Interesting stories some stranger than fiction. Will definitely read more by this writer.

    Volume 1 I usually prefer books with more pages and one subject. More in Novel form. However I found this collection to be well written. It held my interest. The author presented the stories with the most important aspects of the crimes. Good reading!

    I don’t think it’s fair to leave a star rating on this book because I am definitely not its target audience. I am not much of a true crime reader, but I read this for a book club, so while it grabbed my attention (like a train wreck, so to speak...) I just kind of wish I could scrub my brain clean of this book. The writing here is pretty basic - not particularly complex, just straight moment by moment narratives - so it’s a quick read. The stories vary in length and detail. Many were, as promise I don’t think it’s fair to leave a star rating on this book because I am definitely not its target audience.

The stories vary in length and detail. Many were, as promised in the intro, incredibly gruesome. I actually thought, from a writing perspective, the stories included from the next two case histories, were better fleshed out and better written stories. So, if you’re a true crime person, this might very well be your thing. But if you’re like me and you like the comfort of telling yourself that what you’re reading is fiction, this is probably not going to be a good choice for you.

    Loved the book Loved reading the true crime stories. As far as your questions about the gory details.....I personally would like more of them. Whats the point in reading TRUE crime if you dont get the gory details. Ive read fiction books that talk about brain splatter and other details. I read nothing on this book that made me want to stop reading! Keep writing and keep it true!
