My sons are the same age as Christian Michael Longo. As a teenager, Christian would come over to be with them. But I haven't seen Christian in more than 20 years. The author, Carlton Smith, died in 2011. His book is his perspective. His book told me many things I did not know. But there are things Carleton did not know, likewise. I'm the kind of person who hands out approval judiciously. My relationship with Christian was friendly but not warm. I felt like he was hard to read as a teenager. But ...more

I expected this book to br more about the deaths/solving of the murder by this horribe father. It spent a lot of time setting up the scene by talking about Jehovahs. It also spent a large amount of time explaining how far in debt the family was and how many rubber cheques had been cashed. I hated the father for blaming his wife and I hated the fact that he thinks he is so charismatic that he could get away with anything.

What an evil person he was!! This has to be one of the saddest and shocking true crimes I've read in quite some time. Carlton Smith, has usual, done a good job. Just sickening this monster tried to lie the blame on his dead wife. I hope he's been executed for these horrific crimes but knowing our justice system I'm sure he hasn't been.

Not bad, well-written, though I would've liked more on the scientific evidence linking Longo to the crime. There are no autopsy findings, no crime scene forensics, nothing like that. If that evidence had been included, the book would've been more well-rounded for me.

An excellent book about a horrifying subject. Christian Longo thought he could fool everyone because of his charming personality, which he managed to do for a while until the walls began to close in on him. He solution was to murder his innocent wife and children.
