This is a very good book, if like myself you LOVE true crime books. It is very descriptive and it makes your stomach turn to see how these people were so psychotic. In the middle of the book thought they jump around alot and it was easy to get a bit lost for a second but overall a great read!

This was one of the creepiest books I have ever read. This man was manipulative and very sick. He was able to convince his girlfriend and his daughter to participate in the capture an torture of young women. The things he did to these girls was unimaginable to any normal human being. He made my skin crawl.

This is one unbelievable sick SOB. Fortunately David is deceased and burning somewhere. His daughter should be there with him. This is a testament to how life can be so harsh and the law sometimes lets killers go free.

Rather disjointed, there were a lot of satellite characters that made the whole thing more confusing.

Very good book. This guy thought of so many different ways to torture women. One of the most sadistic of the serial killers.

The town this takes place in is a good days drive from my home. It tells us how our young troubled street woman are easy prey for the sadists among us. As long as public perception of the young woman who vanish from the streets remains the same they will not even be missed until their bodies are found. This is a story about torture for pleasure. An unusual team of a male and female. The female would lure her "Friends" then give them to her male counterpart to rape, torture and maim. While she certainly took part I doubt that she would have done this alone. It took two evil minds to come together as one to make a single person. On the other hand I also am sure he has many bodies behind him that will never be found. Buried in the deserts of NM. As she serves her time, in actuality, he got away with it through death.

You just never know how sick people can be, and then to influence someone else to be just as sick is just mind blowing.
