My heart goes out to the families of the victims, it's such a tragic way to end a life. It kept me guessing about the killer.

Very well-written. Kept me guessing until the very end. Because it was based on the "48 Hours Mystery" program, I guess I expected a poorly written rip off of one of the far too many "investigative" news programs out there. I was wrong. Highly recommend.

I thought this book was interesting. The Author gave the reader insight to the lives of the young women involved. It's a sad story, murder never makes sense, and this one is at the top of the list. Two beautiful young women senselessly murdered and who the killer turns out to be, is unbelievable.

I just finished reading this book and it was very good. I was surprised at the ending who the killer was and why. Halloween night in idyllic Napa, California: a transplanted Southern beauty queen and a popular engineering graduate from the Napa area are brutally stabbed by an intruder who entered their home through a first floor window. A third roommate heard the horrific commotion, but never saw the killer. News of the tragedy sent shock waves throughout the peaceful region as well as the nation--but while investigators pursued every angle from a satanic cult to a disgruntled suitor, the murders of Leslie Mazzara and Adrianne Insogna remained unsolved. Until someone came forward with a shocking confession--someone who was close enough to the women to escape suspicion. Someone who knew the victims all too well.

This is a True Crime about 2 girls that were killed on Halloween Night. They were both very likable people and most of the book is focused on telling us this. The story was featured on the TV show 48 hours and the book is based on interviews of the victims family and friends. If you like your True Crime light on the investigation and trial and heavy on the background of the victims you might like this book. I liked it a lot until about half way through and then I got tired of hearing from everyone they had ever met how wonderful they were. There was very little information on the third girl in the apartment that survived. Just an ok book.

A total page-turner, I absolutely could not put this book down and couldn't wait to get to the end to see the outcome. I found myself trying to cheat and skim the end of the book and it took a lot of willpower not to do this!
