Top Customer Reviews
Recall the kidnapping victims whose bodies are discovered after a length of time, the mail bomb murders, the case of the world’s worst woman, and the arsonist who enjoyed hearing the victim’s screams. Unlike fiction, not all the crimes are solved, some of the investigators are flawed, and the reader can be alarmed at the thought of the many warped yet normal appearing individuals we encounter daily. Captivating reading though the writing is uneven in places.
