Well written book about decisions people make sometimes that they find unbearable consequences later. A tale of greed, relationships gone awry, and a cast of characters one does not feel where all bad to begin with but in time, I guess, evil works its deadly grip on the lives of all of the participants. A sad tale in many ways, one more open look at humans and the levels they will go to. I found it enjoyable but grew weary at the ease in which this crime developed. Fascination and certainly high levels of curiosity keep the reader going until it inevitable conclusion. For real crime enthusiasts this book will keep them going until one understands exactly the expression of the woman on the book cover.

On any Sunday morning in the Florida Redlands, Dee Castel might have served you pancakes at the Ihop....
She was a hard working cheerful waitress, one of the nicestest people you'd ever want to know. She was aksi a three bottle a day alcoholic, hopelessly in love with Ihops manager, Allen Bryant. Brant wanted his live in lover, Ihop owner Art Venecia dead. And Dee Castel helped him arrange it.
After Venecias murder, Dee and Bryant moved into his house, forged checks, spent his money and embezzeled from the Ihops to buy gifts for Bryants boyfriends. But there was an even more gruesome killing to come....
WITHOUT MERCY is an engrossing bizare true story that traces the twisted path to a loathsome crime. But it is also the story of middle class citizens gone wrong, of an almost perfect murder, the traumas of alcoholism, and a legal system that can be deadly in itself. Dee Castel was an ordinary woman who now stands convicted of one of the most cold blooded crimes of this century.
