Fascinating, frightening or just plain frustrating? These eight gripping stories show detective work as it really is - and sometimes truth can be stranger than fiction. Hear about the ghostly dream that helped to solve a baffling murder mystery, some clever detectives' tricks that led to the conviction of the 'Laurel and Hardy' jewel thieves, and the crafty blackmailer who nearly got away with the perfect crime.

With facts on fingerprinting, police files and the Flying Squad, True Detective Stories brings you face to face with real-life detectives, and some sinister cases it is their job to solve.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Hansford | 2/19/2014

    " A fantastic reflection by the son of the man who brought this animal to justice. I really enjoyed the genre-style and some of the subtle details that only an insider would know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 1/31/2014

    " This graphic novel was written by the son of a police detective who pursued the NW killer more than 20 years. Instead of focusing on (or exploiting) Ridgway's monstrous acts, the book is a chronicle of the father's relationship with the case. Case's striking art is filled with clean lines and abyssal blacks contrasting stark whites. There are many poignant moments and a lot of humanity here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kasey | 1/27/2014

    " The drawings are simple and haunting. The writing is terrific. The hero is complex and realistically portrayed. The villain is the epitome of "the banality of evil". Excellent, though terrifying read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick Tangborn | 1/21/2014

    " A fantastic novel about the author's father and his 20+ year quest to find the Green River Killer. It's only icing that it happens to be a comic as well. Moving, funny, terrifying, it's relentless yet approachable. I picked it up this weekend and didn't stop until I was finished. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 1/20/2014

    " Nicely drawn and put together. The semi-dual narratives flowed together nicely and kept things more interesting than a strictly linear point of view. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darshin | 1/17/2014

    " My first graphic novel read. I bought this book after learning about it on Radiolab. Really liked the opening sequence. Understood why the graphics were in a stark black & white, but still found it rather distracting. Felt like the images didn't provide too much more than the words. I felt the book wasn't as detailed as I'd like it to have been. Still left wondering "why?" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/17/2014

    " One of the best graphic novels of the year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Lee | 1/6/2014

    " The opening sequence is spine-chilling. The art is stark and evocative and a perfect match for the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth S | 1/5/2014

    " I enjoyed it - depressing material, but a good book. So glad the main detectives lived to see the killer arrested and incarcerated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucas | 12/24/2013

    " A creepy as hell true story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tj | 12/17/2013

    " Simplistic and compelling, such effective use of panels without words. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susie | 12/8/2013

    " It was as much a story of a man's search for the truth as it was about the Green River Killer. It has lots of good creepy elements. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madelyn | 12/2/2013

    " Chilling, fascinating, horrifying depiction of the detective who worked for over 20 years on the Seattle area Green River Killer case, as told by his son. Well done, but such a difficult subject matter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob | 10/24/2013

    " Library copy. Outstanding work. I would love to own a copy and reread. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabriel Hardman | 10/15/2013

    " Disturbing and beautifully crafted original graphic novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 7/13/2013

    " meh. not as good as I hoped it to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Carroll | 3/27/2013

    " The authors' father hunted the Green River Killer for 20 years and this book is a graphic novel that tells the story of that search and how it affected the men who worked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 1/26/2013

    " A very good view of the Green River case through the eyes of the primary detective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aneesa | 9/11/2012

    " A very sweet memoir about the author's father lifelong dedication to his work, and to the victims and victims' families. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meran niCuill | 7/23/2012

    " It wasn't bad, however, I would have liked seeing a little more info in the images.. There was a lot of policeman character imagery.. I expected a more cut and dried approach, I guess. "
