This is one of the most horrific crime stories I have ever read. This book contains graphic details of the sex torture and the ultimate slaying of a young woman by a man that I began to dislike immediately after the first few pages. It is hard to read yet revenge kept me reading.

The name Mel Ignatow did not ring a bell when someone mentioned this book and I thought the concept was interesting. However, after I got the book, I realized that the events in this book unfolded when I was a young teenager not far from where I grew up. The combination of the graphicness of the descriptions, the fact that this man has been released from jail, and lives in my parent's home town made me realize that I'd be happier not reading the book. While, the descriptions are graphic, they are not much more graphic than what appeared in the newspaper during the trials. The author is a reporter for the local paper and is generally very good.

In America, it is illegal to prosecute a person twice for the same crime, no matter the circumstances. It is intended to protect the innocent. But sometimes it protects the guilty as well.

"In a Kentucky courtroom, frustration, ignorance, incompetence and fate pulled a supposedly open-and-shut case in shocking, unexpected directions-and tied the concept of American justice into knots that might never be undone."
