Rated 1 out of 5 by from Almost Terrible I couldn't wait to be done with this book. It reads like it was slapped together overnight by an elementary student with the exception of a few scholastic terms thrown about (I assume the author employed the use of a thesaurus). Just not good at all, the stories are interesting but the editing and production of this book is just awful. It's obvious the author researched others' books and stories on these events and compacted them into her own book. You'd be better off to google the killers in the book and read the stories that way.
