~ I received a free copy of this audiobook through AudioBookBlast in exchange for an honest review.
This audiobook is a compilation of ten criminal homicide cases that took place in the state of Kentucky over the past 50 years.
The title “Kentucky Bloodbath” is very appropriate. The murders and heinous attacks that are detailed in this audiobook are truly bloody and horrific.
I enjoy reading true crime novels, but this one is particularly graphic. That is because it is not just a single story about a single crime.
~ I would caution potential listeners that this audiobook should not be played where anyone under the age of eighteen might hear its content.
The length of this audiobook is perfect. It is neither too long nor too short. I listened to this audiobook on my daily commute to work and was able to hear the entire book in two days.
Author Kevin Sullivan has extensively researched each of the ten murder cases and has included background information on each of the victims and perpetrators. This makes listening to this audiobook much more interesting since there is almost always something the listener can relate to and therefore he/she becomes personally invested in each story.
Kevin Sullivan has included small details that highlight the decade in which each murder took place. This assists the listener is forming a picture in their mind of where and when the murder took place.
I admit that I had never heard about any of these murder cases prior to listening to this audiobook, but I did find them interesting.
I rate this audiobook as 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and would recommend it to those who have a particular interest in true crime stories.
