Carlton Stowers wrote a great crime story but at times he started a thread that he didn't go into detail with, which I was expecting him to or why else mention it? It was a long book but riveting. It's a good thing the principals were brought to justice but it makes one wonder if ALL that were guilty were caught. A good read on the perfect sociopath.

This is the book that got me hooked on true crime. Carlton Stowers is a master story teller and I will read anything he writes. This true story is about a random, savage killing of three teen-agers in a park in Waco, TX.

Three teenagers savagely mutilated. The killer and a deputy play headgames with each other until one gets his way. A page turner that will keep you glued to it.

I discovered Carlton Stowers when I noticed that Ann Rule had recommended one of his books. I enjoy reading well-written true crime non-fiction, and this book certainly falls into that category. Mr. Stowers has thoroughly researched this case, and provides a fascinating investigation into three horrific murders. His books don't quite rank as high as Ann Rule's best, but I would give this one a good solid B+.
