This was a fascinating case at many different levels. Imagine: a State Police Trooper who violently kills a much-loved dentist. Carlton Smith gets enough of the understory to give meaning to the unthinkable and shows the understandable paranoia of friends and family, watching as fellow troopers looked the other way. That some troopers DID do their jobs - in particular, Gardner, Gonglick and others, some unnamed - gets a little lost.

I'm a little too close to the story to give a rating.

I have no doubt in my mind that this author has ADHD and/or is 5years old. Thats how this book is written. I couldn't make any sense of this book which is very disappointing because I think it COULD BE a great story had it been written better! Jumbled, confusing, did not interest me AT ALL. So disappointing!

This was a difficult story for me to read. John Yelenic was a playmate of mine whenever I visited my Grandmother who lived next door. It is such a sad, tragic story. John really was a good person and certainly did not deserve what happened to him. As far as the book is concerned, I thought it was an interested read. It starts off with the murder of a beloved dentist in a small town. The author travels back in time to familiarize the reader with John's history from his childhood to his tragic mar ...more

I could not get into this book at all. The subject of the book was good but all just didnt grab me.

This is a well-written book about the story of a man and his murder. The victim was not a perfect person and the people ultimately responsible for his murder were not all bad. It was a complicated story, consistent with how life truly is. Though I thought the evidence against the man ultimately convicted was solid, it was not as unimpeachable as the author contends. However, as any good author does, it provided his version, but left plenty of room to take what he wrote and come to your own concl ...more

I did not finish this book because it did not hold my interest. In my opinion, poorly written and poorly organized. It kept jumping around making the parts seem unconnected.

good subject matter. could be a very interesting story, written by someone else.
