The kids you meet in this book are scary; bright, talented, and seemingly without conscience or the ability to feel anything for another person. The murders of an entire family bring into focus several generations of tragedy within a disfunctional family.

I have read quite a few true crime books, and this one has to rank at the top. If you like your true crime "fleshed out" by family history and dynamics, you will appreciate what Gelb brings to his book. After all, he was neighbor to the victims. The accused teenager had cut his lawn. This is no dry police procedural or court proceeding. By the end of the book, you feel like you know these people and sympathize with their failings.
