Description

In 1949, things like this just didn’t happen: A quiet New Jersey resident took a morning walk with a 9 mm Luger pistol. In twelve minutes he murdered thirteen neighbors...and then went back to bed.

Howard Unruh went from obscurity to infamy overnight. Even after his obsessive diaries were discovered - a catalogue of simmering rage, petty grievances, and sexual repression - the anomalous crime seemed incomprehensible. Succeeding decades would confirm that Unruh’s “Walk of Death” was just the beginning. The prototype for the modern mass murderer, he would usher in a new age of violence in America.

Rampage is part of Bloodlands, a chilling collection of short addictive historical narratives from bestselling true-crime master Harold Schechter. Spanning a century in our nation’s murderous past, Schechter resurrects nearly forgotten tales of madmen and thrill-killers that dominated the most sensational headlines of their day.

Good story, but leave politics out of it.

Overall a good story. However, author mentions Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandyhook, etc. and blames mass shootings on "Americas ease of obtaining firearms." Author doesn't mention what New Jersey's gun laws were in the late 40's. Maybe this tragedy could have been minimized if civilians were permitted to carry. Either way, author should have left his personal politics out of the story...just my opinion though

Lone Wolf Rampage Killer

It's sometimes hard to rate a book about horrendous subjects that involve true-crime... keeping in mind, my rating is not the subject itself, but on how well told, organised, and thoroughly depicted, the subject content is presented. This true-crime audio account, "Rampage", bares the resemblance of a milestone in history of which we see more of this type of crime unfortunately in our times .... a "Lone-Wolf Rampage Killer", a single mass murderer, that has an apocalyptic rage, seeking to kill as many as he can, in the shortest time possible. In the USA, think: Stephen Paddock (killed 60), Devin Kelley (killed 25), James Huberty (killed 21), with countless more be injured from their attacks. This is the story of Howard Unruh, who managed to kill 13 people in 13 minutes (12 immediately + 1 died a short time later). His attack was brutal, with no mercy, killing man, woman, girl, a 9 yr old boy, and a 2 yr old toddler that was looking through a window. "In 1949, things like this just didn’t happen: A quiet New Jersey resident took a morning walk with a 9 mm Luger pistol". It's claimed from that day, things were never the same, and many people were outraged that Unruh, never got what he deserved. First degree murder or mental illness? After his obsessive diaries were discovered with journals of people on his list—he catalogued simmering rage, petty grievances, and sexual repression, all of which lead him to a desire, a thirst, that he MUST RETALIATE. The succeeding decades would confirm that Unruh’s “Walk of Death” was just the beginning. The prototype for the modern mass murderer, he would usher in a new age of violence in America.

Decent, but not enthralling.

It's a decent diversion. I had never heard of the criminal in focus here, so at least that part was interesting. Other than learning about a new-to-me criminal, it was a pretty average listen. Didn't hate it - didn't love it.

Mass shootings in the past

Rampage takes a look at the mass shootings in our American history. Although there were not as many as we have now, it is still a devastating event that shakes the whole community. This book covers some of the events and shooters and why they say they did it. Narration was good and appropriate.

Incredible story

If this was a movie it would just another horror film trying to shock people, but the fact that this is a true story makes it all the more shocking. It is hard to imagine how someone could totally flip out and go on a shooting rampage like this! Unfortunately, in this day and age it's more believable, but in 1949 it had to be shocking!!
