This book was hard to put down. I don't usually like books written in the first person, but this one was a definite exception. Flynn, a prosecuting attorney, weaves an amazing story. He tells things in the order in which he discovered them. I completely agree with the cover of the book - "An auspicious debut...reads like a thriller."
Flynn is given a case of a murdered mother and daughter. And it's not just a murder, these two women were butchered. Gruesome details, a man hunt, amazing testimonies, and edge of your seat excitement is what this book is all about. If you are squeamish, you might not want to read this book. However, if you enjoy a good thriller, you won't want to miss it!
Excellent true crime! It covers the heinous mutilation murder of a young mother and her
13 year old daughter, and over ten years work bringing the killer to trial.
It's written from the prosecutor's perspective and his writing captured my interest right
away. It was super hard to put down as the crime was so horrendous, you really wanted to keep reading in the hopes the murderer received justice.
Graphic in detail, characters you can relate to and highly readable.
No photos though, which was a disappointment for me.
This was a good story made very interesting by a good author. I enjoy true crimes. I especially liked how the author had a family story of his own to tell and how well it was woven into this crime story. Good read...
