A good trivia book, well organized into different crime sections. Would make anyone hosting a trivia party easier with questions at the front of the chapter and answers at the back. Lots of interesting facts to go along with the answers.
Thank you to the author Michell Tooker and Librarything,com for a copy of this book.

Now this... This is a good True Crime Trivia book. Good selection of things related to crime and lots of good trivia questions. For someone who is a crime junkie, I was even stumped on several of these. For a good crime trivia night, this is the one to have.

True Crime Trivia 2 by Michelle Tooker is an excellent collection of intriguing and haunting cases. I loved the presentation format which included chapters broken down by crimes and cases as referenced in the title and multiple-choice questions with detailed accounts to the correct answers. The book could easily be used for a fun game/trivia night or used for an ice breaker exercise. I learned about cases I'd never heard of before, as well as ones I thought I knew well. It's brilliantly compiled and would also make a fantastic research book. It’s a must have for every true crime enthusiast!

This book keeps the format of the first book. It enables you to take the quiz and then immediately find the answer in the next section without having to constantly flip to the back of the book for the answers. It also notes the page number at the beginning of each section, if you want to just skip to the answers to host a trivia night. It is well formatted and easy to follow along with every answer giving a snippet of trivia about the answer. This book offers different questions, categories, and criminals than the first book. I found this one to be more interesting and I learned a lot.

I am a full on true crime junkie. I really enjoyed this book, although I did discover that my most accurate results were in the cults chapter. I am a little ashamed of how much I got wrong in the first two chapters.

This was so much fun!! I love trivia and true crime and the combo was perfct. Worked on these quizzes while sitting at the beach or waiting at the dentist( also recommend using the printable scorecards for game night). I also learned quite a few new facts about some crimes/killers, so that was exciting.

This was a fun read, in fact I'm still reading it off and on. So much info. I did not do the test, and I'm glad I didn't. Soon after I started on It, it did not take long before I realized that I knew next to nothing about crimes,
Summer read for sure and try the trivia test. I will
Good Luck / Bonne Chance½

I, and my friends, found this book very interesting! It's filled with trivia questions that will challenge even the most seasoned true crime aficionado. While the questions are fun and can be challenging, the details regarding the cases are interesting to read and have turned me on to some lesser known cases that I want to research more about. I also appreciated that this book handles the cases and crimes in a respectful way, especially towards the victims. Too often true crime almost glorifies the perpetrator, but not so here. If you're a true crime lover, you'll love this book, and I highly recommend having a trivia night with your closest true crime loving friends to see who among you is the biggest true crime expert.

True Crime Trivia: 350 Questions & Answers to Quiz Yourself and Challenge Your Friends by Michelle Tooker is a very highly recommended trivia book that is perfect for a game night. We undertook the challenge with a mixed group of true crime fans and others up for the quiz. More on that later.

The book is organized into seven chapters on the following topics: Unsolved Mysteries & Cold Cases, Serial Killers, Podcasts, Celebrity Crimes, Heists & Robberies, Facts & Figures, and a Grab Bag for a total of 350 questions. Each of the questions is multiple choice or true or false. Each chapter is followed by a separate/corresponding chapter with the correct answer and a paragraph of additional information about the case or topic involved. The organization of the book makes it very easy to use this for a trivia game night. At the end of the book the sources for each chapter question are listed for those who want to look it up.

You can follow each chapter straight through, or pick and choose from various chapters. This book has the content for multiple game nights, or at least with the group I had gathered together. There were plenty of additional discussions about a topic after the answer was revealed. You can also sign up for the VIP readers group and get a link to a printable scorecard as well as a bonus chapter on cults.

We ended up starting at the beginning and then soon started jumping to different chapters, sampling questions from several. We did not have time to sample questions from every chapter. The group decided to not use the score cards this time, however we are planning to do this again and may use them then. Honestly, we hardly made a dent in all the questions presented in each chapter we sampled and had an enjoyable evening tackling the questions that we did.

You would have thought that the true crime fans had an advantage, but those who follow or pay attention the news also did well. (We did by-pass the podcast chapter, which would have given the true crime fans an advantage.) The discussions prompted by many questions were fun and lively. I'm looking forward to several other trivia nights with True Crime Trivia and tackling the additional chapter on cults.

True Crime Trivia: 350 Fascinating Questions & Answers to Test Your Knowledge of Serial Killers, Mysteries, Cold Cases, Heists & More by Michelle Tooker will be a fun book to have. My son and I will enjoy testing our memories and knowledge of past crimes. I'm certain we will both learn new things along the way. This book will be more for him, as he is an avid fan of the true crime genre. Just looking through it, I am surprised at the things I do clearly remember!
I received this True Crime Trivia book as part of the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program, in exchange for this review.½

What a great book! The book is divided into chapters about various aspects of the true crime genre including Unsolved Mysteries & Cold Cases, Serial Killers, Celebrity Crimes, and (my favorite) Podcasts. Each chapter presents the questions and four possible answers. Following the "question" chapter, the next chapter immediately provides the answers and a small paragraph with further explanations. Each chapter also has an extensive list of sources for the material at the end of the book. If you sign up for the author's newsletter, you will be sent information on how to access a scorecard to use (if you want to play the trivia with a group) and also a bonus chapter on cults. While some of the questions seemed quite easy to me, others referenced crimes I'd never heard of, so there is a good mix of well-known and more obscure information included. Unfortunately, there are also plenty of podcasts mentioned that are new to me, so I have added even more of them to my playlist! Anyone with an interest in true crime will really enjoy testing their knowledge (while adding some new facts!).

I received a copy of this book from LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

I'm a trivia buff and a true crime fan, so this kind of book is right up my alley. A few of the questions and answers were pretty common if you know the biggest profile cases; it's the more obscure trivia I like. I used the book for fun instead of actually keeping score on my answers, and there are a lot of fascinating tidbits in here on regional cases that I had not heard of before. I definitely recommend for true crime fans!

What caught my eye about this book is the fact that my sister and my friends are always watching or talking about the true crime documentaries and mini series that they watch. So I immediately thought it would be a great book to have for mini game night sessions. When I went through the book on my own I really wasn’t expecting to know more about the specific cases mentioned in book as I was quizzing myself! I’ve only went through the book with my sister so far but I’m excited to share the book with my friends in the future.

This is an awesome trivia quiz book about true crime. It almost sounds weird to say how excited I was to be able to read this and host a trivia night. Love that there are 350 questions that fall into seven chapters; unsolved murders, serial killers, podcasts, celebrities, heists, facts, and grab bag. Some of these questions will be easy for true crime fans, but there's a few in there that can stump you. Love learning some new things. Definitely recommend for true crime fans!

I enjoyed reading True Crime Trivia very much. It is fun to test yourself or host a crime trivia party. I thought I would score very well, but I was surprised how much I didn't know! It even has a chapter for ways to play by yourself or with friends. There is even a link to a website where you can join a VIP readers' group and download scorecards.

I really enjoyed TRUE CRIME TRIVIA. As a huge fan of thrillers, police procedurals, and mysteries of every genre, I loved the interesting true crime facts I learned from this book and also enjoyed the chance to quiz myself to see what I already knew. It’s written in multiple choice and true/false format and I found myself quickly hooked and wanting to read more!

This is a fun book. It would be great to get together a bunch of true crime aficionados and try to stump them with the many questions. I learned a lot from the book, some things I had forgotten and others things I never knew.

This is a real interesting book ! Perfect for a reader of many true crime books over many years (like me). 350 questions and answers . I learned quite a few facts I was not aware of. Organizied ,easy to read. i don't participate in the pod casts or have many friends that read true crime but just for my own reading it was a good book.

This being a more modern book, it covers crimes from the 2000s and podcasts, which I was less familiar with as well as older more famous crimes and generic knowledge that can be gained by watching television or reading mysteries. The trivia is suited for teens and adults.½
