This is a sad story of a woman that killed one of her adopted sons and got away with it for years. The reader will be left shaking their head in disbelief! There were a few people that covered up for the killer and even more people that turned a blind eye to the abuse.
You will be surprised at the events that led to the prosecution of the killer. An unlikely hero and a biological mother that wouldn't let it go.
This book will leave it's mark on you!

This book was so hard to put down. The author is very detailed and the story is true. So many people knew and no one did anything, unimaginable!! They all should of been prosecuted. I will remember Dennis in my prayer now. Excellent book.

It is a true story. The author understands the time, place and people. It is sad, tragic and facinating story.

A family adopts a small boy, and the adoptive mother abuses and tortures the boy while the adoptive father does nothing to stop it. It takes over 20 years for the truth to come out. I found it very disturbing; I could not put the book down until I finished it.
