The authors have done a great job providing background information into the life of the killer, as well as parlaying her attempts at deception. Always believing that she is outwitting the detectives, her downfall is that she is not as smart as her grandiosity has convinced her she is, and this results in her snare, which she never saw coming, even though she certainly should have. As a reader, you root for the cops more and more with each revelation of the depths of her depravity, while your disgust for her increases commensurately.
Barer and Girardot have delivered a rendering of a psychopathic and heartless murderer, whose evil deviance defies natural universal laws. I won’t reveal the extent of her profligate wickedness, but be forewarned; the book includes an additional shocking revelation and confirmation of her deeply distorted pathology. While horrified by her behavior, one cannot help but recognize the foreshadowing of things to come once the extent of her victimization in the form of childhood abuse is revealed. While not coming even close to a condonation, it serves as a sober warning of the damage done to those whose souls are damaged and stolen in their formative years, especially by those who they should have been able to trust as their protectors.
There is a section at the end which speaks to this victimization, which is a welcomed addition, as it casts a realistic light on this moral failure of society. The only negative I experienced in my reading of the book is that within just the first few pages of the book, I was able to guess the method by which the victim was murdered. It didn’t ruin anything for me though, as the book is so well-written, that you want to finish it in one sitting without pausing!
