I started this but it is just a lot of descriptions about everything and I find that boring, you know the whole story, the victim, the killer, etc. so all you're reading is conjecture and lots and lots of descriptions, just watch it on Dateline.

This is a very interesting book! In my opinion,I think Ken killed Crystal and his mom was covering for him.You will have to read it and decide for yourself.

Well written, this true story of murder, manages to convey the torture of the victim's families in their quest for justice in a Southern town and shows the excellent and persistent roles of the detective force in the same town fighting to unmask the murderer in their midst who killed the high school student in an insanely depraved manner, despite her life having been so happy and normal up to her death. Compassionate and compelling.

This is one of the best TC books I've read. I liked it so much I read it again, several years later. She was killed by her best friend, who added insult to injury by becoming the heartbroken mother's confidante and comforter. She believed in him; all the while she was supporting her daughter's killer.
