This book is easily one of my new favorites. I've been getting into the murder mystery genre, but this is one of its own. The novel is an in-depth psychological assessment of this real-life multiple murder in Kansas. It goes off on tangents at times, speaking of other murders and murderers of the times, but the whole book is so interesting. His take of these gruesome murders, written with "testimonies" and "first-hand accounts," sucks you in from page one. It keeps you hooked with bits and pieces of the murders and everything that is happening to everyone involved in time sequence. Very very interesting book!
