I have studied the story of Pee Wee Gaskins for years and compiled information (documents, letters, photos etc.,) from many sources close to the Gaskins crimes. I also co-produced a PBS TV program with (Bill) Wilton Earle shortly after the release of his book "Final Truth." Of course Mr. Earle spent many weeks with Gaskins in prison, allowing him (Gaskins) to tell the stories of his murders in his on words - culminating in Earle's fascinating book. Frances Swain Hall brings up some amazing details relating to a few of Gaskins' brutal murders not seen anywhere else. You know, every book doesn't have to be written in a scholarly, erudite manner to be brilliant and worthy of inclusion when disecting a story on any subject. This book to me, was a breath of fresh air - not only because it was a a page-turner, (you literally can't put it down, once you start reading it) but, because of the quaint way the story itself was presented. The old style typeset, the double spacing throughout the volume - all of this is easily overlooked - and quickly, once the reader begins the story. (It is no doubt brutal and not for the feint-of-heart.) I had never seen many of the pictures that Mrs. Hall discovered for inclusion in "Slaughter In Carolina." In my opinion, this book - although not produced by a major publisher - and not presented in the most slick & professional manner - is one wonderful addition for the general reader or investigator, interested in the mind of a merciless serial killer. If interested at all in the story of Donald (Pee Wee) Gaskins, you will certainly not want to overlook this book!
