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.

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.

This is a true story of a man-woman team who were alleged to be serial rapists.
