I read her first book on Larry when it was published almost 25 years ago. These books are very personal to me. I went all through grade school with Larry. Mabel who shares her memories of Larry and St. Joe was my dearest friend. When I read it the first time I skimmed over the heinous details. lt was too unbearable. the Larry I knew was the class clown. He hid playing cards in sister's books for example.
The new book has fewer details of our childhood and those named from our class including Mabe

This was a really captivating read.Without giving spoilers this is a very hard book to review.The mans luck in evading police is almost unbelievable. A worthwhile a read for the true crime aficionado.

Freed to Kill is a detailed, thrilling investigation into the justice system. This is the story of serial killer Larry W. Eyler and the system that let him go in the face of overwhelming evidence...Freed to Kill shows the limitations of a justice system that, for better or worse, places procedure over pragmatism...highly recommended.
