TRUE CRIME USA: Real Crime Cases From The United States | 14 Shocking Short Stories Taken From Real Life "Adrian's unsparing short stories are like the tragic storm that unexpectedly strikes. Before you know it, all he left behind is destruction. What remains are strong emotions, many questions and the feeling of being thrown back on what really TRUE CRIME USA: Real Crime Cases From The United States | 14 Shocking Short Stories Taken From Real Life "Adrian's unsparing short stories are like the tragic storm that unexpectedly strikes. Before you know it, all he left behind is destruction. What remains are strong emotions, many questions and the feeling of being thrown back on what really matters in life." "Langenscheid's cool, clear short stories don't seem to aim for emotion, but precisely because of their brutal, matter-of-fact, neutral portrayal they are so incredibly shocking." TRUE CRIME USA – REAL CRIME CASES FROM THE UNITED STATES Cold blooded murders, fatal family dramas, and a spectacular robbery. It's no secret that True Crime is not for the faint-of-heart. These true and authentic criminal cases tell the stories of people known to us - friendly neighbours, devoted parents and/or loving partners. This book is about the people behind their bourgeois façade, where unspeakably deep human abysses exist that nobody, not even those closest to them, would have thought was possible. In his second book "TRUE CRIME USA"", one of Germany's bestselling true crime authors, Adrian Langenscheid once again documents the real crimes from real neighbourhoods. This time, the tales originate from the United States of America. Crimes that actually happened - you will be captivated and shocked, amazed and moved to tears. Shaken to the core, you will question everything you think you know about human nature.Even investigators, judges, defense lawyers and public prosecutors are not immune to the fact that these defendants are on trial for particularly horrific acts. The heartbreaking fates of the victims and their relatives are gradually exposed. In an ideal world, the final verdict ensures the just punishment of the perpetrators - but what punishment is truly-just in the face of such cruel reality?In fourteen true crime short stories, you will get to know some of the most-spectacular American true crime cases of the last few decades. The well-known German crime podcast, "Wahre Verbrechen", features two additional, spectacular cases. Crimes such as murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, abuse, fraud, treason and robbery often involve "people like you and me" whose lives have suddenly and completely changed from one day to the next due to tragic circumstances. Was it greed, the lust for murder, a perverse sexual inclination or a blackout, that made the serial killer act so ruthlessly? Does the perpetrator hide his true motive? Does he suffer from a psychological anomaly, like bipolar disorder or the Münchhausen deputy syndrome? How is it possible for such a small motive to erase the life of a child? What distinguishes us from those who take others' lives? Which criminalistic methods and procedures of modern psychology help to identify the most terrible murderers of our time? Each chapter of True Crime USA details a real criminal case, factually, truthfully and free of any greed for sensationalism. This poignant book gets under your skin. Heinous acts like the cold-blooded murder of five siblings by their own mother or the tearful death of an unjustly-condemned, coloured-boy who was never allowed to grow up. Every story in this book is an authentic portrayal of a serious crime.

    Listened to the audiobook via BookBeat UK! This is a collection of 14 real-life true crime tales from the USA over the years, excellently collected by the author. There were lots of new ones I hadn't heard before, the huge majority of them were truly shocking to hear. Not for bedtime reading that's for sure! The audiobook length was really short (3 and a bit hours) with a good narrator.

Der Autor hat eine für die Thematik gute sachliche Schreibweise. Es ist nicht zu emotional, aber auch nicht nur trocken runter erzählt.  Bei zwei der Geschichten saß ich echt mit Tränen in den Augen, weil ich diese Ungerechtigkeit nicht verstanden habe. Und dann gab es da eine Kurzgeschichte die mir wirklich gänsehaut beschert hat. Dieser Mann in der Geschichte wirkte echt gruselig. Es werden hier Kurzgeschichten über Morde, Raub, Familiendramen, Wirtschaftsverbrechen und knallharten Urteilen erzählt. Manchmal doch unfassbar was wirklich so abgeht. Sehr gerne vergebe ich 5 von 5 Sterne

    Wow, just...wow. I had to swallow and take a breath after finishing reading this collection of short stories written by Adrian Langenscheid. He has a way of telling every single case in such a touching and mind shaking way, it's fascinating. When you read about such crimes in the newspaper, internet or anything, it's just a headline, a topic that gets your attention for just a few minutes. But with these short stories, all those cases and lifes, get under your skin and touch your heart and mind. Wow, just...wow.

    INteresante en cierta medida y lleno de historias de horror. Una forma de ver lo peor del ser humano.

    Interessante Geschichten, etwas zu melodramatisch geschildert.

    Ein sehr gutes für Leute die sich für wahre Verbrechen interessieren. Ich konnte es nur nicht an einem Stück lesen, weil es mir zu grausam war.

La verdad es que esperaba algo más. En la introducción se dice que se van a leer relatos que van a intentar reconstruir los hechos reales de asesinatos y de las mayores estafas hechas en USA, pero al final lo único que hace el autor es narrar los sucesos a través de los datos dados por las noticias o la policía. En algunos hay factor sorpresa porque la policía no sabe hasta el final quién ha sido pero de relatos tiene poco, es una correlación de hechos que cuentan el atroz suceso. Sigue la línea de investigación hasta llegar al culpable. No está mal conducido pero se me han quedado algo flojas las historias. No por lo que cuentan porque lo que hay en ellas es perturbador, duro y a veces muy sangriento. Saca a la luz hechos reales de casos brutales de gente, personas, que fueron capaces de cometer actor inverosímiles y a veces difícil de creer. Está curioso. Pero tiene un punto en contra que me ha echado muy para atrás: la traducción. Hay muchísimos fachos de traducción, frases y párrafos que a veces tienen una traducción muy literal y queda forzado. Me ha chocado mucho esto, no sé si ha habido corrección previa o si el autor ha intentado traducirlo por sí mismo y no controla muy bien el castellano hablado. Me han chirriado muchas expresiones que me han sacado del contexto.
