5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for those Interested in the Zodiac Killer, March 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This riveting, sometimes sad account of an adopted son's search for his biological father is a page turner. The information provided gives a concise account of who the Zodiac killer was and reasons why he committed those horrendous crimes. For those familiar with the case and/or live in the SF Bay Area this book finally closes the gap on a case gone cold. Once again we read of corruption in a major city's (S.F.) police department. This book would make a great movie, putting some closure on what went wrong with one man and how his son, throughout years of his own research found the very troubling match of his biological father and the Zodiac Killer. I found it hard to stop reading this very well told account of the adopted son's search for his father. True crime at it's best. My heart goes out to Gary and his family. How difficult is must have been beginning his search with the hope of a happy reunion with his father only to discover his father's pure evil.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware:sizing completely off, February 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered this in XL as the size chart says XL is size 14-16 ( my usual size). This blouse is more like a size 4. I could not even get it around me to put both arms in. Amazon needs to use an accurate size chart for this brand. Blouse is beautiful but made for tiny women with no curves. I am very disappointed and will now have to hassle with sending it back. I'd recommend the XL for women who usually wear a size small, then it MIGHT FIT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great insight into a sociopath and the loss of one of his son's, December 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Wild Truth (Kindle Edition)
Well written account of the abuse and illegal activities of Walt McCandless and his wife. Chris' father and mother are sociopaths, not able to face the truth and have compassion for all those who have been hurt by his bigamy and abusive behavior of both parents. They are clearly to blame for the loss of their son. Their manipulative, illegal and abusive behavior caused their loss of their son, Chris long before he started his journey into the wild. My heart goes out to their children and Walt's first wife. Kudo's to Carine for being brave enough to share the family secrets. Mr. Walt Mccndless continues with the denial game with the website "for Chris". It's sickening to think of profiting from this fraudulent site.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very poorly, if even, edited., December 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The introduction leads us to believe that this is a book has extraordinary merit in the beautiful writing. Once again I'm stumped. So many spelling and grammatical errors distract from the writing and the message. Have publishers forgone editing in the race for the dollar? Perhaps writers need to supervise editing ( if it exists) to ensure that their labors are not in vain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read, well written, VERY POORLY edited, if at all., December 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've yet to finish this book. It is a page turner but not for the squeamish. I read several books per week and was struck upon starting this read at how beautiful and eloquent the writing is. I must; however, give this book 4 stars because of the very poor job of editing. Actually, It doesn't seem that there was any editing done to find small grammatical errors or words missing one letter. Many sentences are so well written that I reread them to savor them. And then a page or two later have to reread sentences, just to understand them due to the lack of editing. This problem is not isolated to this book- are books actually edited before publication? Is this a digital format problem? Are there any editors out there who would care to comment?

5.0 out of 5 stars So comfy, October 7, 2014

These shoes were so comfy right out of the box. They've been on many sailing voyages and are great at gripping the boat deck. These shoes stay tied and remain comfy even after a long weekend of sailing. They look great with any color.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Quality, October 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These beautiful tea towels are just as colorful a year after purchase as when they were received. The cotton is high quality and is nearly as beefy and absorbent even after weekly washing. Great for lint free drying. They machine wash and dry beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a beautiful piece of art suitible for hanging as is or framed., January 9, 2010
This is a beautiful piece of art suitible for hanging as is or framed. Would be great at a home bar. I have mine hanging on a kitchen cupboard. The canvas is stretched over a frame. The colors are subtle yet stunning.
