You can search online for Sante and Kenny Kimes and learn about their life of crime, but only here do you get the inside story of these people.
This is a shocking and heart-rending memoir, and should be read by anyone who is interested in the people that surround and are affected by a psychopathic member of the family.
I won't give it away, but the new edition comes with an epilogue that is every bit as surprising as the rest of the book. Needless to say, Kimes was a mystery and a shyster from a family of mysterious shysters, apparently.
My favorite scene involves Kimes attempting to beat a summons by having a friend dress up as her, as he put it, "identical twin snowbunnies" or some such weirdness, and show up claiming that the 'wrong' Sante had been served! Walker states this was the kind of insanity and boldness that Kimes not only would pull, but could suck other people into participating in.
Written in a down-to-earth style that moves along briskly. Fun, if unnerving and weird. I'm amazed that Walker emerged as a decent person; what a testament to how intervening in the lives of youth at risk can pay off. Hats off to him for surviving this insanity.

and all the awful things they got up to.
I am in the process of reading the book , so far i am finding it slow going but i am hopeful it will pick up speed ( I am finding the early background
overly long,) However thank you seller .
