This is the second book from Mr. Mitchell that I have read. Like "Evil Eyes" it didn't disappoint.
The author includes transcripts from Anthony Shore's confessions.
The reader gets a chilling insight into the mind of an incestuous serial killer. He sensed that he would be discovered after submitting a court ordered DNA sample. Mr. Mitchell gives accounts of some of Shore's disturbing activities as a youth.
Corey Mitchell does a great job of detailing the investigation and prosecution of Anthony Shore.He writes about the crime lab scandal and that makes the independent DNA lab very important as a part of the prosecution's case. Add to that the tragic suicide of one of the homicide detectives,and the revolving door of relationships that the killer had and you have a very chaotic period.
The author provides a fast-paced but focused book on virtually every aspect of theses murders,from the victims,their families,Shore's family,the detectives determination to solve the cases,and the Assistant District Attorney who successfully prosecuted the killer.
A great read from one of the best true crime writers of the day!
IMHO - Corey's best so far.
Although a man of superior intellect and a musical prodigy, Tony Shore's behavior was seemingly out of control. This made the unusual ending of his crime spree that much more bizarre. Bouncing in and out of relationships, Allen possessed a lust for young girls. The two girls from his first marriage were frequent victims of his abuse. Yet the nature of his murders outside of his family reflect distorted views. Particulary as the details of his crime against his youngest victim emerged through his confession, it is difficult not to be disgusted.
While many books in the true crime section promise "eight pages of shocking photos, the pictures are primarily candid shots of the criminal and detectives. The pictures included by Corey Mitchell are graphic beyond any that I have seen in a paperback. I commend Mitchell for not shying away from that which may be unpleasant to some for the sake of honest storytelling.

Very boring. Very poorly written. Basically a catalogue of the primary source stories. No interpretation, craft, or work added. Awful.Published 17 months ago by Amazon Customer

This book was really interesting to me because it took place in Houston where I am from. But after reading An Invisible Man and The Night Stalker, it just wasn't a page turner...Published on May 31, 2011 by Kindle Customer
I have to start by saying that Anthony Allen Shore was beyond a sicko. No one was safe around this guy. Not even his own daughters! Read morePublished on November 1, 2010 by Kindle Customer
