What an evil, mean son and brother this guy is! This was such a sad story of how the rich kid wanted to be richer even if it meant killing his own sister, mother, and father to get the money. Very easy to keep track of all the leads and trails the policemen had to follow to get the killers to trial. A little burned out as it got closer to the trial but it was a very interesting story of how they proved who did the killing.
Pretty good true crime. I like this author's style and will see what else he's written.
"... But police couldn't tie Dana to the crime. Weeks stretched into months, and...a fierce duel began between the cold-blooded rich boy and the working-class detectives. For three years, Souza and Curtice kept at the case, relentlessly chasing even the tiniest leads. And for three years, Dana taunted them, daring the police to catch him...if they could."
Dana ia one cool customer. His grandfather lived in my small town of Wellington, Ohio and it seemed strange to read about our little town in this crime book. This book dwells heavy on bullets and stria and land and grooves. It's sort of tedius at some points but all in all, the author tells a gripping story of greed.

Good story. But very chilling a child who had the world at his fingertips but turns to cold blooded murder for pure greed.All that stood between Dana and his family fortune was his family,so Dana decides they must die! Just goes to show money doesn't solve everything in this case it was deadly.
The never ending tale of human greed. A criminal soul hiding in the comfort of a nice family and lifestyle. After reading several books where members of the family turn on each other, mostly for profit, I finally came to the realization that acts such as this can happen anywhere, anytime. Like most killers this one is as cold as they come, spoiled, twisted life with so evil intent for their very own family. I give it 3.5 Stars because it reads fast but the tale is similar in many ways to those of rich spoiled persons that instead of getting ahead on their own accomplishments decide it is much easier to take what their parents have. Ugly tale, entertaining enough but eventually it reminded me that I had also seen this case on a television real life crime episode. Kind of in the same club as the Menendez brothers, which today no one remembers or cares for. 3.5 Stars.
