    This book is hard to read because of what it describes, but it is gripping too which makes it hard to put down! The pacing of this book is well done. The writing really made me feel like I was right there. I always enjoy reading about true events that I am not up to speed on, but I can...

    I found this book hard to place a star value upon. Reading about this horrific crime was heart wrenching. The wanton murder of three little innocent girls, Madeline and Melba Everett and Jeanette Stephens was a crime that heralded in the age of the sex crime unit and provided the co...

    To read this book about a family secret explored shortly after reading "Mindhunter" proved to be intriguing. The author, the niece of two of the little girls killed, uncovers the back story of this tragedy, including the likely news that the one convicted was not the killer. Rather the...

    Sad and interesting tale, with a reminder that even now in 2018, people still get found 'guilty' of crimes they didn't commit just because it's 'easier' than finding out the truth. ...

    It's very difficult to rate this book at all, given the horrific nature of the crimes - which I am glad are not given in detail. The generalities were bad enough. The books is full of heartbreak and tragedy, and justice not served. I wanted to know more about Godsey, and what else migh...

    Enjoyed is the wrong word to use in describing my reaction to this book. It does, after all, describe a sensational murder. I did find the book very interesting. As a lawyer--though not one who practices criminal law--and an amateur genealogist, I found the search to find out how a...

    This is a true crime book told by a person related to two of the child murder victims. As she had only sketchy newspaper articles and court documents to work from, I wondered how she was able to write the courtroom scenes complete with "he looked down at his shoes," and similar touches...
