The Darkest Night Will Haunt You Long After You've Finished Reading!
on March 11, 2017
The Darkest Night is one of those rare books that you never forget. I've found myself thinking about the events in the book long after I finished reading.
The author set the scene to take you into the time era in which this horrific crime took place. Ron Franscell did an amazing job at recounting the events that affected so many lives.
Yet, there was one part of the book that I couldn't bear to read. The author included one of the killers 'manuscripts' or 'autobiography'. I call it complete and utter fantasy on the killer's part. I had to skip those pages. His delusions of life as he supposedly lived it, read like a dime store novel, and a bad one at that. I won't deduct a star because it's included in the book as some people might be interested in reading it. I wasn't one of them, but that isn't the authors fault.
I still highly recommend this book. It was the best true crime book I've ever read.
