Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Hard to put down. My father and uncle worked at the time for U.S. Steel. Occasionally when one of them was in port my mom and aunt would take my cousin and me up to visit. The hotel where we always stayed had began going downhill. Once during that stay we came back to find a young male employee coming out of one of our rooms with no explanation why he was there. Racial tension was high in July 1966. When we were getting ready to leave for home the news reported the bodies of 8 nurses were found murdered. My mom and aunt were scared to death. We never went back. Speck had a LONG rap sheet. He originally received the death penalty, but this was outlawed. His sentence was changed to life. I guess the life sentence didn't mean life as Speck kept going up for parole. What a slap in the face to the friends and family of the victims. Thankfully Speck died in prison.
