Cheri Reviews Nothing but the Night by Greg King and Penny Wilson

Nothing but the Night: Leopold & Loeb and the Truth Behind the Murder That Rocked 1920s America by Greg King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Like most Americans who are interested in true crime, I’ve heard the names Leopold and Loeb many times over the years. But I had no idea what they actually had done. So when I saw a new audiobook on the subject over on NetGalley, I grabbed it. And I’m so glad I did!

Nothing but the Night goes into great detail about the two men, the murder, the investigation and trial, and the aftermath but never reads like a text book. I was completely engaged the entire time I listened. And the narrator was damn near perfect as far as I’m concerned.

If you’re a fan of true crime – whether you’re familiar with the case or not – I definitely recommend Nothing but the Night.

Big thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the audio ARC!
