Best of True Crime

Just finished season one and was very moved by the compassionate telling of this crime and it’s journey through the legal system. Presented multiple points of view and was balanced in pointing out strength and weaknesses of both sides. I can’t wait for season 2.

Fabulous podcast!

Thanks to Mr. Connelly for a fascinating podcast. It was very interesting to hear the insights of the detectives, lawyers, and others throughout the episodes. I’m almost done with season 1 and will look forward to season 2!

What a bonus. I'm a great fan of the Bosch series and these podcasts will keep me going as I wait for the next book. They are so expertly presented, you get the sense that justice is complex, and is driven by 'driven' people

Love this podcast

Loving Season 1 of Murder Book. A lot of commonalities with the latest book release “The Night Fire”. Will listen, watch and read anything by Michael Connelly. Great content and perspective, can’t wait to hear more.

Murder Book season 1

Enjoyed the podcast very much. The story was riveting and fascinating. A classic case of truth being stranger that fiction. Although it seemed like there was some stretching toward the end which was a bit tedious to listen through. But it is understandable that this was necessary in order to include the final resolution of this epic case which was still taking place in real time. I have not read any of Michael Connelly’s book as yet, but I will probably start to after hearing the podcast and watching the Bosch series on Amazon. Eagerly awaiting season 5.

Fantastic

Michael Connelly has created a Podcast that is as addictive as his books. I love the true crime angle and “meeting” some of the people who inspired the characters from his novels. You won’t be disappointed!

won’t be disappointed

I almost wrote this podcast off partway through the first episode because I thought it was kind of slow, but it picked up and got interesting soon after so hang in there if you feel the same way! Great story telling, details, and interviews. Definitely one of the better true crime podcasts I’ve listened to and I hope more seasons are coming!

Longest case ever

It took me two days to listen to this podcast. It was all I thought about all day long. In 1987 I was graduating from 9th grade and hadn’t heard anything about this case. However, I do recall a lot of gang violence. This case was amazing. Very interesting from beginning to end. I found myself getting so upset with the defendant for all of the delays. He’s a selfish individual. Although he had turned his life around he still needed to pay for his crimes.

Good pace, easy to listen to voices.

Fascinating story with lots of interesting details. Must like cold case stuff I think or it might be a bit slow for you. But great production and content.
