I really enjoyed reading this book. It doesn't go very in-depth so that's the only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 because my brain would love just a bit more information (but then again I'm never satisfied and always go off on tangents so it's near-impossible to get a 5 star rating.) But its taken me over a month to finish this book. Why? Not out of boredom, but because I'll read on a case that I'm interested in and then I use my Nook Tablet to get on Google and try to find out more! Definitely check out this book if you're new to true crime and want to see what kinds of cases there are out there. It'll keep you occupied for some time if you let it. Not a great book if you want a definitive volume, but a tremendous resource for piquing your interest about specific crimes and jumping off to read about more. Definitely a true-crime "Must Read" for the beginner or the person who thinks they've heard of every case (I thought I was a connoisseur, but easily half of these cases were entirely unfamiliar to me.)
