-K M Steele for Reader's Favorite
5-Star Review from Foreword Reviews. Richard Bruns' "I, a Squealer" promises an insider's account of the "Pied Piper of Tucson" murders. As intriguing as this narrative is, the more compelling story lurks within the relationship between the "Squealer" and the "Pied Piper." Published fifty years after it was written, this tale is fueled no less by its teller's compassion than by the killer's deplorable deeds.
-Linda Thorlakson, Foreword Reviews
I, a Squealer is a riveting true story of one man's struggle to do the right thing. Richard Bruns takes the reader on an emotional journey as he faces his darkest fears to help police catch a killer - a killer he personally knows and knows well. I definitely recommend reading this book.
In an honest and gripping account, "I, a Squealer" gives a rare opportunity to read an insider's view. It provides a thought-provoking read that is absorbing from the very first page.

Written with an impressive candor, "I, a Squealer: The Insider's Account of the Pied Piper of Tucson Murders" is a unique, insightful, and impressively informative account of an authentic serial killer that is unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Criminology Studies collections, as well as the personal reading lists of non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject.
