What did a high-priced hooker and a low-class sex-offender have in common? It was-according to police-their lust for stalking, raping, and terrorizing young women and girls, in once case as young as thirteen-years-old.

Michelle Michaud and her husky-voiced boyfriend James A. "Froggy" Daveggio used to hang around the local high school in search of their prey-and are suspecte

Interesting. A prime example of what I have heard called "the banality of evil". Despite all of the hyperbole on the back cover and the grandiose posturing in the minds of the main characters, in the end, it isn't the story of Bonnie and Clyde, but a sad little story of two misfit tweekers sponging and stealing their way through life who let things go too far.

Eh. I am certain that the main subject of this book, James A. Daveggio, was involved in far more crimes than he was actually caught at. I am OUTRAGED that Marvin Mutch is STILL imprisoned for a crime he did not commit (as of Sept. '06 he was still in prison)!! Just one of the many failures of our justice system.

I randomly found this book in the library.
Got me to think about how the drugs affect minds and the ways victim mentality develops over time.

In my experience, few authors besides Ann Rule write interesting true crime books. This book is as well-written and interesting as Ms Rule's accounts.
