For 13 bloody years, a psychopath ran loose in Texas. His name was Robert Joseph Zani. He killed his mother. He killed a kid in a convenience store. Then he began to terrorize Texas real estate agents. With the help of his Mexican wife - a former prostitute turned witch - he carried out his bizarre scam with cold and deadly precision.
Loved the way the author worked into the subject and events without using a step by step approach. Often I find that kind of flashback or out of order thing confusing but this one wasn't. The reader feels like they are discovering facts right along with the detectives. The murderer is a truly sick puppy, but other characters (though flawed) are quite sympathetic. I didn't know much about these crimes, but evidently a very big case. Highly recommend.
