Editorial Reviews

Review

"...an insightful look into the mind and making of a...predator. An important addition to the literature on serial murder." -- Michael Newton, Author of The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers

About the Author

Considered the "Hart-to-Hart" of Southern California investigators, Joyce and her husband Harold investigated cases involving move stars, mobsters, and millionaires during their careers that spanned several decades. Changes in law enforcement, the judicial system, and how citizens respond, have become bountiful fruit for her Harbour Pointe Mystery Series; fictionalized stories taken from her actual case files.

Format: Paperback
Joyce Spizer is the only writer who could possibly makes us feel outrage on behalf of a monster. How does she accomplish this? By showing us the failings in the justice system and the social supports and the schools that could have prevented the deaths of the 70 people of which Glen Rogers has killed, that we know about. Joyce's most shocking revelation is not that Glen may be the one who actually killed Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson. This will most likely be a matter of fierce debate, as will her contention that Glen Rogers' depravity is partly due to his unfit parents, who have rendered all but one of their seven children forever damaged (they have 300 arrests between them.) Her insight into judicial errors of L.A. County and Florida makes you take seriously her argument that the law enforcement officials who failed to stop Glen Rogers before he killed his first victim are as much to blame for the ruined lives as Glen himself. Joyce sets out to do something revolutionary, and succeeds in sounding a "wake-up call" to all those who just wash their hands of troubled at-risk juveniles.

This one was particularly interesting because Glen was born and raised in my hometown. Full of surprises....you just never know what someone went thru growing up and how it can affect their future.

I haven't ever picked up a true crime book before. I really enjoyed this book. You can tell it was well researched! Some of the family interviews must have been very difficult. I learned a great deal about the mind of a serial killer, or at least this one in particular.Also, I learned a whole lot about trial law and porphyria (the disease Glenn has). It was very insightful.

I purchase this book after viewing the documentary which provided more insight into the kind of man he became and what made him turn into a murder. The structure of the book was disappointing as well. It did not hold my interest, so I did complete the book.

It is amazing what happens in the mind of a serial killer. I can't believe he was in my state. Scary

This is, by far, one of the most poorly written books that I have ever read. Trying to follow the author's storyline and wade through the multitude of grammatical errors gave me a headache.
