#1: I'll Be Gone in the Dark

One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer
By Michelle McNamara
Narrated by Gabra Zackman, Gillian Flynn & Patton Oswalt /  10 hours 7 minutes

I'll Be Gone in the Dark

“An overwhelmingly obsessed Michelle McNamara dissects the decades old trail of tragedy, trauma and ongoing taunts by the elusive East Area Rapist in her investigative crime thriller “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” published posthumously after her unexpected demise. Dubbed the “Golden State Killer” by McNamara herself, his crime spree started with 50 unsolved rapes before escalating to numerous murders leaving terrorized California residents tense for ten years. A determined McNamara meticulously researches this reign of terror with such precision it’s sure to pry this perpetrators identity out of obscurity and into justice, a suitable ending for this authors’ life.”

#2: The Devil in the White City

Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America
By Erik Larson
Narrated by Scott Brick /  14 hours 58 minutes

The Devil in the White City

“The Devil in the White City is one of the most fascinating books I've ever read. Set amidst the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, Erik Larson's historical narrative interweaves the stories of two men who would come to define it, for better and for worse. One is Daniel Burnham, chief architect of the Fair, who threw his entire being into creating a landmark event in American history. The other is Dr. H.H. Holmes, a serial killer who built a hotel that became his "Murder Castle", luring many poor souls who came to Chicago to their death and dismemberment. Though you may expect Holmes' chapters to be more entertaining, I was amazed by the story of the World's Fair and its impact on American history. The first Ferris wheel debuted as the centerpiece of the Fair, the Pledge of Allegiance was written for its opening ceremony, and its use of alternating current electricity essentially ended Edison and Tesla's current war. If these bits of trivia excite your inner history nerd, come buy the book today!”

#4: Killers of the Flower Moon

The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI
By David Grann
Narrated by Will Patton, Ann Marie Lee & Danny Campbell /  9 hours 4 minutes

Killers of the Flower Moon

“In "Killers of the Flower Moon", David Grann recounts the tragic tale of the Osage Indian Nations decimation and deceit at the hands of their government appointed guardians. Motivated by money, morally corrupt and masterfully manipulative, the true role of these benevolent benefactors, perpetrators of mass murder, is still a mystery today. Granns detailed, yet deeply disturbing detective work, back to the birth of the FBI and the rise of J. Edgar Hoover, unveils an unimaginable injustice overlooked for 85 years. Let’s not allow this atrocious act against the Osage to slip back into obscurity ever again.”

#5: Catch and Kill

Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators
By Ronan Farrow
Narrated by Ronan Farrow /  10 hours 43 minutes

Catch and Kill

“A timely, incredibly important account of the difficulties Farrow faced at NBC while working on the Weinstein expose, which he took to the New Yorker and subsequently won a Pulitzer for. The audiobook is grippingly read by Farrow (though the accents he attempts are... let's go with 'confusing'). It's upsetting, sure, but heartening to see the exhaustive research and the very clearly laid-out account of how Farrow had to work against the very powerful high-profile members of the media establishment--including his own bosses--not only because of Weinstein's well-oiled intimidation machine but also as part of those figures attempting to cover up their own histories of being harassers. Highly recommend this important piece of current events journalism, which reads like a thriller novel.”

#6: Furious Hours

Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee
By Casey Cep
11 hours 15 minutes

Furious Hours

In Cold Blood and To Kill a Mockingbird kept me up reading all night as a teen, and I can now add Furious Hours to the list of couldn’t-put-it-down tomes. I was enthralled, educated, and awestruck by Casey Cep’s well-researched and masterfully written true-crime account of a rural minister, his lawyer, and his killer. Thankfully, Cep discovered and brought to light what surely could have been Harper Lee’s second bestseller. Now…off to get a good night’s rest!”

#7: The Real Lolita

The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel that Scandalized the World
By Sarah Weinman
Narrated by Cassandra Campbell /  7 hours 26 minutes

The Real Lolita

“Any fan of Nabokov’s Lolita will be enthralled by Sarah Weinman’s investigation of the real-life kidnapping and sexual assault that became the basis for the 20th-century masterpiece. Weinman dives deep into the archives to piece together the ties between fact and fiction, even when the author or the victim’s family refused to discuss history. Swapping between true-crime journalism and contemporary literary analysis, the author brings new attention to Nabokov’s seminal work and draws the tragedy of Sally Horner out of obscurity.”

#16: The Feather Thief

Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century
By Kirk Wallace Johnson
8 hours 4 minutes

The Feather Thief

“A fascinating true crime book, The Feather Thief recounts the theft of more than 200 bird skins from a museum in England. Along the way, Johnson also covers Darwin contemporary Alfred Russel Wallace's travels to acquire birds of paradise, the theory of evolution, and the decimation of bird species in the name of fashion. It is a book about obsession, from the fly-tying community's hunt for specific bird species to Johnson's own need for justice and closure after the case is resolved. This is a gripping, multifaceted book about our need to possess beauty in the name of historical authenticity.”

Monroe goes beyond the gruesome details of violent crime using not only her experience as a reporter, but also personal narrative and social examination. She shines a light on some of the most gruesome murders and the rippling consequences that occur long after justice, or what we think is justice, is done. If you liked I'll Be Gone In the Dark, you will love this one. I could not stop listening!”

#24: The Third Rainbow Girl

The Long Life of a Double Murder in Appalachia
By Emma Copley Eisenberg
10 hours 32 minutes

The Third Rainbow Girl

“The facts are that in the summer of 1980, two young women were hitchhiking in Pocahontas County, West Virginia en route to the annual Rainbow Festival. Their murdered bodies were found in a remote clearing on a remote road. Over the years, multiple people confessed to the murders. Was it a local as many thought? Or an itinerant mass murderer traveling the country, raging against blacks and others? Eisenberg dives deeply into the case after spending time there years later as a Vista volunteer. This engaging book tells the story of the people of this rural county, the history of the area, and the officials who would not let the case die. It is also Emma's story: her time with these people, her loves, and her discontent. It is a stirring addition to the Appalachian story.”

#31: The Fact of a Body

A Murder and a Memoir
By Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich
Narrated by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich /  10 hours 37 minutes

The Fact of a Body

“Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich didn't set out to investigate murder of six-year-old Jeremy Guillory in Louisiana; it was the case she happened upon as a young law school intern in 1992. In a fascinating twist, this becomes not only the true story of a heinous crime for which the perpetrator is in prison, but also of the investigation that unlocks the author's memories of her own youth, a childhood in which she and her sisters were repeatedly sexually abused by their maternal grandfather. As Marzano-Lesnevich moves backward and forward in time between the young man who killed Jeremy and her own life, the reader is swept along on a current of dismay and awe: dismay that human beings can do these things to each other, and awe that the author could face such demons and move on. I've never read another book like this.”

#35: The Cadaver King and the Country Dentist

A True Story of Injustice in the American South
By Radley Balko, Tucker Carrington & John Grisham
14 hours 45 minutes

The Cadaver King and the Country Dentist

“What does a small-town dentist, an unqualified medical examiner and the Mississippi criminal justice system have in common? They’re a part of a good ole boy network obsessed with mass incarceration and the death penalty, rampant racism and corrupt court judges consumed with closing cases at any cost. Not to mention the wrongly convicted men paying the price for other perpetrators crimes, many of them still sitting on death row today. “The Cadaver King and the Country Dentist,” by Radley Balko and Tucker Carrington is a horrifying haunt through a legal system run by unqualified, unconscionable men intent to impart their will on an unwitting society too overwhelmed by titles, accreditations and pseudo-scientific facts to question their motives. Thank goodness Balko and Carrington had the courage to expose these corrupt individuals and hopefully, this book will open a door to investigations in other criminal justice courts across the country.”

#38: Mrs. Sherlock Holmes

The True Story of New York City's Greatest Female Detective and the 1917 Missing Girl Case That C...
By Brad Ricca
Narrated by David Bendena /  12 hours 35 minutes

Mrs. Sherlock Holmes

“A father's plea - "Won't you help me?" And Mrs. Grace Humiston, who started the People's Law Firm as a practicing attorney & a detective as well, would take this challenge & more. This book begins with a missing girl, and Grace's search for her uncovers connections with corruption, abuse of immigrants (Italians down south) & the legal rights for everyone. Thousands of young women disappeared in to white slavery and the police did not follow through with investigations. Grace helped organize the Missing Persons Bureau. Through the 1920-30s racial issues were still present, gangs, spies and international intrigue were a daily occurrence. And Grace was there - but who remembers her and her sacrifices? The Epilogue is full of information so be sure to read that as well. It may help you understand the greater picture.”
