Bind Torture Kill. The Inside Story of BTK

This is a review of the audiobook Bind, Torture, Kill. The inside story of BTK, the serial killer next door. It is available on Audible, which is where I purchased it. It is written by Roy Wenzl, Tim Potter, L. Kelly, and Hurst Laviana. The narration is by Keith Sellon-Wright. The regular price is $27.99, but there...

Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony Part 2

Presumed Guilty by Jose Baez

In Part 1 we took a look at "Imperfect Justice", written by prosecutor Jeff Ashton. To get a more complete picture, we will now look at "Presumed Guilty", the defense attorney Jose Baez' version of events. My final thoughts on the subject, having listened to both books, will be posted in an upcoming 3rd part.

More Bedtime Stories For Cynics

This production is another Audible freebie for May. More Bedtime Stories for Cynics is a comic work piecing together multiple short stories from a variety of writers. It is certainly not intended for children. Furthermore, it's most likely not safe for work. Unless, of course, you work at Bada Bing. Before I get...

Imperfect Justice: Casey Anthony Part 1

This will be the first article in a 3 part series revisiting the Casey Anthony trial. It is in part a review of the book Imperfect Justice, by Jeff Ashton. Moreover, it is also a revisiting of the case for me. I entered the trial of Casey Anthony like most Americans, firmly believing in her guilt. However,...

Evil Eye: Audible Original by Madhuri Shekar

Evil Eye is an Audible Original available to members free during the month of May. Otherwise, it has a tag of $7.95. It's a short story, less than two hours long. Madhuri Shekar is an Indian-American author. This is my first audiobook by her. The story is told through a series of phone calls and voicemails between Pallavi, a young...

The Dispatcher by John Scalzi: Audiobook Review

This is a short story with roots in science fiction. It is a nice little mystery about 2 hours long. It was one of the freebies Audible gives to members each month, so I gave it a listen. Before we get into the story, I need to set the backdrop. Sometimes they come back.

The Woman In The Window by A.J. Finn

I really didn't like The Woman in the Window. Neither the character nor the book. I was able to get through it, but I was unable to enjoy it.

1984 by George Orwell Audiobook Review

1984 George Orwell

Clearly this book is a classic. Hence, Audible has several different editions of it. This review is of 1984 New Classic Edition (Unabridged). If you're not already a member of Audible from Amazon, you can get it free at the link above with a new membership. Background information. The...

I’ll Be Gone In The Dark: Michelle McNamara

I'll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara is a strange audiobook to review. Hence, this will be a bit of an unusual review. The book is an unsolved mystery. However, the mystery was solved shortly after the book was written. Thus it is by it's very nature an incomplete story. Is it still worth the...

11-22-63 A Novel by Stephen King

If you're bad with dates like myself, you're lost. However, if you're a history buff you know where this is going. J.F.K. was assassinated on November 22nd, 1963. This is the setting for 11-22-63 a novel by Stephen King. It's not a documentary. It doesn't investigate the crime. It does mention without exploring the conspiracy theories. The...
