This book provides details 7 murderers who were released from prison to re-offend. It is very interesting and comprehensive. The subject matter is predictably disturbing, but the author does a good job of making it an entertaining and fast read. It is clear the author emotionally connects with the victims and with their families - his writing conveys deep empathy, concern, and sometimes outrage. This adds a humanistic element to the shocking content, and is arguably what makes the stories easier to read. While this book is not intended for students of criminal justice, it is a great place to start for those who are interested in crime stories/reads, or who find crime shows interesting and are looking for more information (and these stories are true!).
