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.
- 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.
