I am intrigued by all things crime, crime novels and Investigation Discovery, I could watch it endlessly. Based on that alone it gives a pretty intimate and difficult glimpse into the darker side of a news headline.

Insightful look into a horrific murder

Overall I thought the book was well written and provided more insight into the horrific murder of an innocent little girl. I was however hoping for a bit more information about John and Cynthia as well as community reaction.

Horrific, hard to read more than a chapter or two at a time

I had forgotten...

Very well written. A lot to digest but riveting. I started reading this book in an office waiting area and immediately purchased it. It will be read again.
Difficult subject matter, but I remember when this horrific crime occurred when I was in high school. I now live quite local and frequently drive by the building and think of that poor little girl.
