I found this case fascinating so I did some digging and found a copy of this now out of print book. I knew full well what theory the author subscribed to beforehand, but by all accounts Neal Hall is a savvy crime reporter with a good ear to the ground and he has the most complete account of this bizarre case. He is a credible voice here.

From the writing style you can immediately tell he's a newspaper reporter - the prose is straightforward but isn't exactly going to suck you in. It's quite matte

I literally could not put this book down. The mystery of the whole story really made it hard for me to stop reading. I saw this story first on unsolved mysteries, but the show does not tell you everything. in the book they much deeper into who cindy was and who her husband and family were. It was very hard to read certain parts because alot of it had to do with her mental state, so they used alot of pyschology lingo. the parts were the attacks happend, were very detailed. it was a real page ...more

Featured a lot of info not included in the "Unsolved Mysteries" segment, which is what I was looking for. Definitely a page-turner.

So, I am not even sure how to review this. To really talk about it would be more like a multi-part r/unresolvedmysteries post.

So, as a true crime book, it is fine. This is a really confusing case where the victim was often an unreliable witness and Neal Hall manages to give a good overview of many different aspects of Cindy James' mental and physical state. The facts, such as they are, can be easily followed.

I just wish there was more information. I remember seeing this case on Unsolved Mysterie

Wow, did I inhale this book. I couldn't put it down. My problems aren't with the book itself as it was very fact-driven and to the point. My problems are mostly with the case itself and the instances where further investigation should have occurred. This woman had been through hell, whether it was suicide or murder, something happened during those 7 years. Although I knew it was an unsolved case, I still found myself hoping for some sort of ending. Unfortunately forensic science wasn't what it ...more
