I live just outside of Cleveland, so this story was quite a shock to me. It is very well written and gives a lot more information than I got from the local news. It is truly amazing how the Cleveland police treated the family's of the women who went missing.
I lived in Ohio, only a few hours from Cleveland, when Anthony Sowell was arrested. Even though he was a serial killer (and an Ohioan at that), I don't remember him receiving much attention on the news. I remember one blurb about bodies being found in a Cleveland house, and then another about him being arrested, and that was it.

I try and read a lot of true crime and this book was not put together very well. It went from person to person to person. It never let you get a clear picture of what was going on until the end when he was caught. I do have to say it was so sad how he slipped through the cracks so many times. I feel so bad for the victims and their family. This book just jumped around to much and was somewhat confusing.
Couldnt finish it. I didnt even make it half way before I stopped. The author jumped around too much, you rarely knew who he was talking about - not that it mattered, you never knew who the majority of the people were anyhow.
