An absolute must read.

Eye-opening story of the failure and complexity of government red tape leading to a tragic ending that could have easily have been averted.

David and Kate Bagby are not human, they are a Force of Nature right up there with lightning bolts and tidal waves.

How someone can go on with their lives after an episode such as this is beyond ANYTHING I have ever witnessed or heard of. David Bagby is a man of remarkable intelligence, resourceful, practical and that shows in his writing. There are no fillers, only a highly detailed description of events and the Canadian judicial system, where the cracks are and how to fix them. You get it all. How the events unfolded, his surprise (and shock) at many judicial decisions but immediately devising a strategy to address them. An engineer in everything, even in the face of this monstrosity.

The Bagby family have become my most recent personal heroes. Their tenacity is simply breathtaking and their endurance to withstand such MASSIVE amounts of pain is something other people can only dream of.

I am not a very religious man. Or lets say, my faith goes through many ups and downs. But I have no doubt that David and Kate went against pure evil. That monster who killed their son and grandson was not sick, was not demented - she was dark to the core, something beyond this natural world. How they kept their sanity after facing it, is something quite remarkable.

You need to first see the video "Dear Zachary" and then read this book - the book is great and fills in a lot of detail that couldn't be included the video. This is a heart wrenching story that leaves you crying for David and Kate Bagby.

This is very personal to my heart since my very good friend is very close to the Bagby family & I am from Pennsylvania where this tragedy took place. David Bagby's writing is very eloquent, considering the circumstance. I hope this story of how the Canadian Government failed this family will help change the laws in Canada. An EXCELLENT read.

I've watched this documentary probably 6 times in the pass few years. Kate and David are why I keep watching. It's them who I want to see and draw my strength from. Kate and David are one of the strongest people I've ever seen. This film makes me wish I had Andrew as a friend and Kate and David as parents. What they went through is unimaginable. It's a story in a story. To Kurt Kuenne, what a friend you must of been to Andrew. This documentary was done so well, I will never forget.

Dance with the Devil and the book Dear Zachary, are the most heartbreak that any family can bare. The fact that one death could have been prevented had the laws in Canada had the interest of the victims and not have blinders on to what an ANIMAL this person was. She should have rotted in jail for the first life she took,the destruction and heartbreak she had caused. But she was allowed to run free, free to kill again. I hope the lawmakers in Canada have trouble sleeping at nite. Kathi PierceDance with the Devil: A Memoir of Murder and Loss

An excellent book. Definitely not a happy book, but one that is extremely informative about the US and Canadian Justice Systems, and their impacts on everyday families. An amazing glimpse of how people deal with tragedy, and what it takes to get a killer behind bars.

This was a great follow up book to the documentary, it informs us about the specifics of what happened while honoring the memory and lives of Andrew Bagby and Zachary Bagby. If you are especially interested in the legal slip ups and failures that didn't help prevent these crimes, I definitely recommend this book. Some of the jargon was a bit much for me (and I skipped some areas because of it) since I wasn't familiar with the language but overall a great, insightful book written by Andrew's father about loss and his effort to help change the laws to prevent such horrendous tragedies from happening again. I commend David Bagby for his strength and efforts in writing this, I know that it was not without pain.

I caught "Dear Zachary" (the movie version of this story) a few years back. I cried and cried, and then I had my daughter watch and then a friend. No one made it through without bawling their eyes out. You cannot help but fall in love with both Andrew Bagby and his son Zachary Andrew. In this book David Bagby does an excellent job retelling the horrific story from start to finish of losing both son and grandson to the same deranged woman. An absolute must read.
