Helpful Score: 4

This is a journalist's account of a brutal murder and 2 cruel assaults made by a crazed man from Ohio on his way to Florida. The author does a nice job of describing the victims, their injuries, and the suffering of their families in the aftermath of the crime, but I found there to be a lot of repetition in the presentation of the story. The author jumps from first person to third person in the narrative, and that is poor writing. The book is about an interesting crime but the writing of it was not cohesive, and I would only rate it a 2.5 out of 5 pts.
