This case is a true tragedy. The author did a fantastic job with the case taking place in the 1940s, really did a lot of research. I was automatically drawn into the story. I did not put this book down once until I had finished it. I recommend this to anyone who likes true crime. Definitely in ny favorite top 3.

This true crime story lured me in immediately. I currently reside in the Union Dale area which is maybe 10 minutes away from Vandling. I must have passed the location of this murder a million times & never knew that those streets of Vandling held such a gruesome & gloomy past. After reading this book I can't drive through the area without thinking about this 9 year old girl who was brutally murdered in the 1940's. The author's use of words creates such imagery. The story draws emotion and allows you to imagine you're walking beside the characters & baring witness to their stories personally. This book will keep you enthralled throughout the chapters!

Purchased this book because it was recommended by a friend of the Author and because I recently moved to the area. Although the Story of the murder was interesting, I felt it was written very poorly. I am an avid reader, however I had a very difficult time dealing with the endless rambling and multiple thoughts in one sentence. Being familiar with the area was a huge help, otherwise I think people would get lost and confused very easily. My main complaint was that the Author listed at the end of the book that one of her main reasons for writing it was so that she could pay tribute to Mae. She wanted to change how everyone always remembered who Myron was, but how no one every seemed to even remember the name of the girl he murdered. . After reading the book I know more about Myron than I care to, however, I still know very little about Mae and who she really was. So much more could have been done to pay tribute to this young girl who had her life taken from her at such a young age, rather than focus on the one who took it from her.

I'm bewildered by (and a little suspicious about) the number of reviewers that described this book as well written. It's actually very badly written, and would have benefitted greatly from the attention of a good editor. The grammar is shockingly poor and the author has apparently never met a cliche' she didn't immediately press into service. That said, she has chosen a fascinating subject in this oddly obscure child-on-child murder which took place in small-town 1940s America. It's worth trudging through for that reason alone.

To review this as a work of literary art would be a disservice to the author. I give this 5 stars not for the way it was written (and it is well written, clear,straightforward, commanding the readers attention) but for the realizations it brings to the reader. The phenomena of a child psychopath is one born earlier in American history and not relegated to the urban experience. This is told with careful compassion for victims, perpetrators, and community. Should be required reading in psych, criminal justice, sociology and 20th century American culture classes.

I enjoy a bit of true crime every now and again..this was good as it is a tale of an old murder case from the 1940's..interesting how different crime was handled back in the day..not always the good olds..I did find some grammatical errors which seemed lame, but over all the story was good.

What an awesome book!! This is not the type of book I usually read but I was drawn to it for two reasons. The author was a high school classmate of mine at Forest City Regional High School and the setting of the crime was a mile from my home.
Very well written.
I can't stop raving about it to my family and friends. They now get mad at me because most of them are reading it or plan to read it.
I couldn't put it down. Definitely a one day read.
Can't wait for Tammy's next book!!

Well written but a terrible tragedy. I have read many "true crime" books but this one was more gruesome and disturbing because it involved children.
