If a true crime audiobook is your idea of the perfect listen, then this post is for you. True crime has been enjoying something of a boom in recent years, thanks in part to the popularity and influence of podcasts such as Serial and Dear John, and true crime nonfiction books—and their audiobooks—have been climbing bestseller lists.

We’ve rounded up some of the most riveting investigations and explorations of solved and unsolved murders, mysteries, and scams that will have you binge-listening late into the night. Fans of stories about con artists will devour Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, the breathtaking story of Elizabeth Holmes and her biotech company Theranos that’s been described as “the biggest corporate fraud since Enron.”

The truly fearless shouldn’t miss Michelle McNamara's I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, the chilling story of the hunt for the Golden State killer, the rapist-turned murderer who terrorized California in the 80s and 90s.

Read on for more unmissable listens.

Dave Cullen Columbine didn't make this list, but it's also in audiobook.


message 6: by J.N. (new)

J.N. Columbine is a great audiobook. American Predator was a fantastic one for this year. I liked I'll Be Gone in the Dark but it skips time around a lot, which always confuses me.
