As hard as I tried to stick with this I just couldn't!

I don't understand why true crime writers have to always go back to the day everyone was born, that just doesn't have anything to do with why they are murdered or why they are a murderer.

This involves 2 murders and believe me--she goes back into every aspect of everyone's past and it just isn't necessary, just the facts mam please!

I found it so tedious to try to read every single description in this book about each character and it just got boring because she didn't move along with the crime and had to get into the pasts of everyone.

The pictures I didn't find interesting at all, who really cares what the victim looked like at birth, first grade, senior in high school, and on and on--

so I just quit and probably won't be trying anymore of Rule's books.

oh and by the way, this book is not 544 pages but 407 unless you read the Afterword apart.
