Interesting story involving a lot of different characters that were involved indirectly with the $600,000.00 ransom money paid by the parents of the kidnapped child Bobby. This books illustrates greed and ruthlessness from the initial kidnapping, trials, executions and further trials of police officers and the underworld. It is a very sad commentary of how far people will go for money. I enjoyed reading this book.
