Carlton Stowers' true crime books are, without exception, some of the most engrossing I have ever read. He gives you that sense that you know the people and are privy to their thoughts, feelings, and misfortunes. This is one you'll want to stay up all night to finish.

Undercover officer George Raffield's job was to pose as a student in the small town of Midlotian, Texas, and infiltrate the high school drug ring. When Raffield's cover became suspect, word spread through a small circle of friends that the young officer would pay with his life. No one stopped it. On a rainy fall evening in 1987, Raffield was lured to an isolated field. Three bullets were fired---one unloaded into his skull. The baby-faced killer, Greg Knighten, stole eightenn dollars from Raffield's wallet, divided it among his two young accomplices, and calmly said, "It's done."

With chilling detail, the author illuminates a dark corner of America's heartland and the children who hide there. What he has found is an alientated subculture of drug abuse, the occult, and an infathomable teenage rage that exploded a point-blank range on a shocking night of lost innocence...
