I grew up in Farmington, New Mexico and went to school with Bobby Fry. What nobody seems to cover in this story is that he was a bully and a terror from the time he was a little boy. He often went out of his way to try being hurtful to anyone he could. He was the son of a local animal control officer, (as children, we referred to him as "the dog catcher") and Bobby was often teased about it. He never behaved the way normal kids do. He had a short temper and would often cry and scream when he didn't get his way. He was also a high school wrestler for a while, and many of us who had grown up knowing Bobby thought it might be a constructive way to relieve some of his obvious anger issues. I also recall his older sister being somewhat of a bully and many elementary age kids were terrified to cross Bobby because we had all heard tales of his sister. Now, while I feel bad that any family has to go through what the Fry family did, it seems that the author could have spent a little more time researching the younger years of Bobby and maybe bring together the loose ends as to why he may have finally snapped and went completely off the deep end. He was grade school bully who grew up into a murderous young man.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The crimes for which Booby Fry was convicted show a murderous rage which has few peers. Though the telling of this story is suspect, the content is disturbing.

Outside of the Southwest, few people have even heard of "Injun Rollin'". Yet crimes against American Indians are much more common than most Americans realize. The author loosely ties Najavo legends to the Bobby Fry's story. Yet with an continuous cycle of repitition, the story seems to go in circles. The final telling of the murders occus in the trial phases, which occupies a third of the book. A book true crime book should engage the reader. The author failed to do this in "Monster Slayer".

Fry's murders went beyond the American Indian community, and his reign of terror only claimed four known victims. The propsect of a human such as Bobby Fry is disturbing. The vaguely explored prospect that fantasy gaming influencing Fry was not explored far enough. When one considers where the crimes started, the crimes may deserve more investigation. With the potential of this story, the author seems to have missed a lot.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
- This book contains 16 pages of photos. They show the killer, his accomplice, murder scenes, the detective and judge related to the case. This helps make it more interesting.

- It graphically and vividly how cowardly the killer was. He begged the jury to spare his life when he brutally killed 4 victims without remorse.

- It drags in many pages. For example, on 2 occasions, the author spent 6 pages or more talking about Native American folklore. He could have summarized them into one page each.

- The wriring style is so so. It does not make the book interesting nor suspenseful.

Good book. If you like true crime, this is an addition. I think more photos and material could have been added. Otherwise I feel it was a really good bargain. I can't complain because I purchased the book for a penny & you can't purchase anything for a penny.
