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 suspe

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. They weren't masterminds, not Hannibal Lecter or even the Iceman, but a petty thief with a temper and a gambling addiction and a hooker w ...more

3.5 - "All that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing."
Love it. So, so true.
Carlton Smith is one of the better t.c. authors IMO. He always manages to make his books interesting no matter what part you're reading. The actual court aspect of this case was very short, less than 10 pages if I remember correctly.

A true crime novel about two truly evil people.
I hope they both rot in prison.

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.

Truely evil...this book places fear in your heart knowing that these sick people are out there looking to victimize innocent people. One criticism is that there are so many charactors it was hard to keep them all straight!

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.
