There are some omissions and differences in the reporting of certain events, but I would not say that this book makes excuses for the perps. The most valuable difference between this book and other reporting is EXACTLY the delving into the homelife and personalities of the killers.
Look, a book titled "Little Lost Angel" clearly has a spin. What happened to Shanda is just appalling and horrific, but I don't think she was an "angel" -- people tend to gloss over the faults and human qualities of the dead and gloss over the good points (or human qualities) of those who kill. I think the killers should have fried, frankly, but there is more to learn about inhumanity and crime by looking deeper.
This book is not as well written as Quinlan's, the style is more "sensationalized" and the organization is haphazard in some places, but there is enough additional info on the case to make it worth reading.
