I really enjoyed this book. It was well written. A lot of times these true crimes get so repetitive and I skim over the pages especially during the trials. This book held my interest until the very end. This was a very good read. I am always amazed at how vulnerable people can be when it comes to relationships even though they are otherwise very smart intelligent people. Sad....

I really enjoyed this book. The story was well told and held my interest until the very end. Always amazed at how vulnerable people can be when it comes to relationships but so intelligent other wise. Good rad, sad story...

True Crime always has that voyeur vibe to it. The look into someone else's life. This was a sad story and the guy was a total gruesome but oddly charming man. Ive read better True Crime than this but it was fair.

comprehensive study of a "control"freak"

Excellent read. For a true story that one would believe is a soap opera. Unless you are a Delawarian, you might not believe this actually happened. It did!

I've never seen anyone who could blame everyone in the world but himself like this guy. What a shame.

I really liked this book and thought it gave a great account of the lives and trial. I feel so bad not only for the Fahey family but for all the people that this man hurt.

Very good book. One of the most well known and powerful people in all of Delaware. Also one of the biggest lowlifes I have ever read about.

I'm a Wilmingtonian who was living away from Wilmo Delmo when this scandal was captivating the populace. These books are how I caught up.
