Terribly written, repetitive but the worst was the way the author used both the first and the last names of people often within the same sentence. It made for very confusing reading! Waste of money and reading time.
I thought the author did a great job at looking at all sides of this case.
This was a quick read, but the ending wasn't as exciting as I'd hoped.

Her power to manipulate is scary, I didn't know much about her before reading this, but after reading this I totally agree she is where she belongs!
I'm still unclear what exactly her part in the crime was but she is surely vindictive, and deserves her punishment!
This was the story of how a brazen women escaped a life sentence from an Indiana prison and was then on the run. Parts of the book going into her sexcapades were a little creepy but the story was explained well so I gave this book three stars.
this author did excellent meticulous research to tell this twisted and crazy story. without spoiling it, what i CAN say is this: Sarah Pender sure is a piece of work. nicely written, Mr. Miller.
What a manipulative person. When I "hear" her speak through the dialogue, I can just feel her creepy charm oozing out. Ugh.

An OK true crime book. I thought the writing was pretty good, but the story itself didn't live up to expectations.
