I really enjoyed this book. IT's a great summer read because it's a collection of shorter, independent articles. While the overall theme is crime, the stories range from tales of deeds by individuals to tales of gangs and brotherhoods. I found some more interesting than others, but that's to be expected in any compilation. Each was wonderfully written though, and taken together, it makes for a great book!

Each short story takes on a life of as it own as the people become obsessed with something in their lives or trapped by it. I will admit that I felt the first story was a bit slow, but the stories evolve even though the characters are propelled not by choice but compulsion.

It is an incredible compilation of true stories on subjects like Sherlock Holmes, fire forensics, architeuthis, and 9/11.

I listened to this as an audiobook on long car trips back and forth between Canada. It is perfect for listening to.
