unbelievable: a man, supposedly a human being, can be so cold-blooded. believable: that someone who kills over & over can get away with for years & years...all they have to do is travel a lot. interesting take on tommy lynn sells, the man who (there were 2 paragraphs on it in the book) killed my niece & her 12 yr old daughter in 1998.

The exploits of Tommy Lynn Sells who killed countless victims across many states in his travels as a "carnie" among other things. His M.O. and type of victims wasn't bound by gender or age. One of the worst serial killers!

Very scary true crime. An amazing read in that it took so long and so many lives before this killer was caught. Good and quick read.

Great Read. Had a hard time putting the book down. It never fails to amaze me what one human being can do to another without losing sleep. Tommy Lynn Sells is one sick puppy.

I like true crime books so I was very interested in reading this one. The information was good and the details were fairly thorough. The pictures were fairly good. But the writing wasn't great. This is not one of the best true crime writers. She repeats a lot and is unclear in many areas. However in this genre, it's not easy to find an excellent writer. There ARE a few, but you have to search for them. Of course Ann Rule comes to mind instantly, but she's in a league of her own. There aren't many, if any, other Ann Rules around.

This is about Tommy Sells, cross country killer who got away with it, over and over again until finally, one of his victims lived to identify him.
