This book was hard for me to read. It happened just a few miles from my town in Truth or Consiquences, New Mexico. It is really scarry to know there are people out there like this. It is Jim Fielder'd first true crime book and I think he did an all right job. He rambles a little bit about stuff that is not important to the story in my opinion. He is no Anne Rule but he knows his stuff. Enjoy reading this book I did.

If you are a true crime fan, you will enjoy this book. The author has a similar style to Ann Rule. The story is very interesting, but not for the easily upset. There are some very graphic parts to this book.

I read this book and was deeply disturbed. I read certain passages to my granddaughter because,young people think they are invincible and nothing can happen to them. It made her more careful. She never goes out without friends or a group. The fact that it's a true story makes it even more chilling.

Absolutely horrifying true crime. The pathology is interesting, if gruesome and might shine a light on getting citizens to wake up to the seemingly benign weirdos in their communities. i knew some of this monsters family, and even though they were superficially normal and respected within the community, their dynamic was almost as bizarre and wretched as David Ray Parker

Crazy man and a unbelieveable story. You can't imagine that someone would be so perverted and evil and be so calcualted and organized in his ways of torture and procedures. he had everything written down and special tapes made for the victims so they would know what was coming. It would have to be worse seeing your "future" with him than not knowing at all! It is unfortunate that he died of natural causes and was not tortured to death like his victims! Disgusting what he though up and even more diturbing that he was able to carry out his sick, dark fantasies. His treatments and torture you would not wish on your worst enemy!!
Also the same story as Cries in the Desert. I had read that one first. (It is the same story but not as graphic.)

Another amazing true crime book that isn't to be missed. This man is so sick and twisted and it makes you just wonder how people like this think. This is the true story of a man (later who has a woman to help him) who lures young women into his depraved "toy room" in which he sexually tortures them (some of the tortures were incredibly sickening) and either lets them go or kills them. This book also discusses his trial as well. Touches on BDSM as that's part of his method of torture (not to demean anyone into BDSM because this man took it A LOT further then just BDSM).

I like to read true crime books, however, this one was so graphic in describing the crimes, I had to put it down. I never finished reading it,

This book is about New Mexico sex serial killer David Parker Ray and his girlfriend Cynthia Hendy. Ray had a $100,000 homemade torture chamber called The Toybox which he used to torture women and police also believe he may have slain more than 60 women.

This is an extremely gruesome story and one that is not for the squeamish to read. It's hard to believe "man's inhumanity to man" and Ray fits this bill. In this telling of Ray's story you will feel the horror surrounding circumstances of how these women were tortured and some put to death.
