Book Description

Genore Guillory was one of the nicest people anyone in the small town of Clinton, Louisiana had ever known. Then she was found dead -- shot, stabbed, and beaten to death with a baseball bat. Investigators had few clues. A policeman was the primary suspect. But there were rumors...whispers of a burgeoning group of white supremacists who sold meth, fought pit bulls and robbed graves.

What unfolded over the course of the four-year investigation was a twisted and sordid tale of small-town evil that shocked hardened investigators, exposed the worst of impoverished human nature, and betrayed the promise of a good life spent in "God's country."

(This book was originally published by Penguin under the title "An Act of Kindness.")

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading August 23, 2012

This is a "TRUE CRIME STORY" worth reading to understand the reality of the history of mankind's behavior. I am glad it was written for Genore (Jane Nora) Guillory. She deserved , at the very least, that she existed, that it was much more than that she was lonely.

Genore had a life and she gave the best that she could perhaps both out of genuine kindness and out of fear. I do not believe that she was so naive that she could not see through their evil, but that she gave despite of what she sensed about these people.

I strongly stand by that Genore did not "feel sorry" for these people as some have said. I have been in her shoes and that is what frightens me. She gave to these dirt-bags to show that she was raised to love and not to hate. Genore wasn't some "weak woman".

Genore had a life. A real life. If she were so "lonely" she would have taken or accepted the advances of that Steve Williams character (if she were so "lonely"). Genore was law-abiding, she worked hard, she earned her fruits for working hard and being a treasure to human kind.

Never should she be blamed for being kind to evil souls. We ought to remember who should shoulder and earn that blame. We tend to forget that if it weren't for folks like Genore who offer second chances clearly to those who do not deserve it, where would any of us be?

We need more Genores in this world, but too many of us cheer on the criminal that we ensnare our own chances for any peace in our own lives. We need to stop cheering on the criminals in our midst and encourage those who encourage the hand of kindness.

It seems that there are more books about criminals than there are about those who truly offer hope within our own communities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable and so sad September 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love to read and one of my favorite genres is true crime. I read the synopsis on this book and had to purchase it. I read it all in a day. It was so interesting, yet heartbreaking and tragic. It's hard for me to believe that some people are so cruel and full of hatred. It's about a group of people who kill a middle aged lady. I still think about this book. The details of the crime are hard to read and brought tears to my eyes. The book interested me so much that I did some googling after finishing it. The author did a great job telling this horrible story. I had never heard of this incident but I am glad the author wrote about it. It's a good book about a sickening crime. I was so intrigued that I purchased other books by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thorough!! May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It's sad and shameful that the only shining light in these people' s world was murdered for money she had left them. The research conducted on this book is the most thorough and intensive of any others I have read. It was definitely hard to put it down!!
