The true story of a psychopath who had his friend kill his unsuspecting parents and sister in order to inherit their wealth. He evaded prosecution for about seven years, but eventually got what he deserved, life in prison. What a scumbag.

Mr. Ewell couldn't wait for his parents to grow old and die naturally. He wanted to inherit their wealth ASAP. He thought he'd committed the perfect crime. Mr. Ewell taunted the police daring them to catch him...if they could.

An interesting,creepy story. I read it because an in-law is related to a key figure, Dana Ewell's girlfriend at the time. So we followed the story as it happened and then as the saga unfolded.

Apparently I work with a woman who is middle-distantly related to this family. Now I have to read it. :)
