This book was okay at best. The plot was interesting, but instead of being presented with some suspense, it was all laid out in chronological order, covering every angle at all times. For me, that made it pretty boring.

While I did find out some bits and pieces that I didn't get from reading all the internet articles, this still fell very flat and dry and lacking. I guess I hoped to get more insight into Dean and where he is now. There's very little from Dean's POV. Basically, just brief tidbits of conversations and nothing after his sentencing.

This story should really never of happened but it did and many people's lives changed overnight. It was very well written, detail on the manner of deceivers dressed in sheep's clothing.I found it fasinating and recommend it. A riveting read
you will enjoy.

Refers to AUDIOBOOK: So far I'm not impressed. It's really boring, with way to much background filler about every single person mentioned, their brothers, sisters, aunts, cousins etc etc. I'll try to finish listening, but it is so far very dull. (I do like Diane Fanning though).

90% of this book was unneeded filler.

Date read on all my books are the day I finish reading them.
I liked this book because it flowed easy. It took you step by step through the events to tell the whole story but did not add a lot of unnecessary side information.
It was not the most grasping and intriguiging book I have read but it was good enought to keep me interested through the end.
