I am a survivor of Tony Leyva's crimes and was not mentioned in the book. My experience with him was in the early 70's. I have first hand knowledge of how he operated and can truly say Mr. Echols' report on Leyva is completely thorough and accurate. Relatively few people will work to expose this type of behavior. Echols is to be congratulated. A must-read for parents.

I am a police detective who investigatis child abuse.
I tell parents all the time how pedophiles get their
children to do things of a sexual nature. One of the
biggest obsticles we frequently face is getting people
to believe someone who is respected in the community
would do what the child is accusing him of. This book
details how they gain the trust of the parent (s) first
and then go for the child. Trust is the primary weapon
used by the pedo. Another frequent problem we have is
getting people to understand why child victims don't
tell when something happens. Mr. Echols did a good job
in helping the reader understand that for various reasons
children don't always tell right away. Brother Tony's
Boys is a must read before you let your children go with
a "trusted friend"

The book gives loads of details going on and on about how Tony seduced boys, and how he and other ministry men sexually abused the boys. Sad how parents defended Tony because they were told not to touch the anointed of God. When a mother comes forward her character is questioned. On and on with loads of sexual abuse details, it can be a little much. After a while I just wanted the book to end.

I read this book as a recommendation for parents to be aware of pediophiles and how to spot them. Having children, I was compelled to know how to protect them. Here is a story I will never forget - part of that is indespensible. Worse, I cry for the countless victims of sexual abuse. When you see ( very thoroughly ) in this detailed account, just how far reaching the devistation is, you can only pray for such victims and strive to protect the ones you love and educate every one else!

I couldn't put it down, as the story grew more horrifyingly unbelievable, I kept thinking it couldn't get worse, but it did - for everyone involved.

In the end, I had to search the internet to see where Tony Leyva was today -- and found that he'd died in prison in 2003. I couldn't help but wonder if his victims rejoiced at the news? Yet a man's fate was hopelessly and finally sealed with the more infinite punishment I am sure awaits him.

As for author Mike Echols, that internet search was even more disturbing. He, too, died in 2003. But I won't tell you how, or where, or other circumstances. You can look that up for yourself after you finish the book. See for yourself what his searching, his quest for justice finally led him to.

You'll realize that you can't go anywhere near any and all things pornographic without being affected by it.

I chose this rating because of the repetitious dialog used in telling the story. The story itself is very depressing in the way so many boys were abused over such a long time without somebody speaking out or even raising suspicion.

I would not recommend this book to anyone that had a young child around that could pick up to read this book. The man was a disgrace to the Christan community as well as the other so called evangelist that were tied to him. I was not able to finish this book. It was more of the same filth over and over. The young boys that he assualted will never be "normal", what ever normal is, again. He has hurt so many young men and their families. Probably I will delete this book.

Tony Leyva is nothing short of a sick and twisted monster! The unspeakable horror that he put those young boys through was something out of a horror film.
