I am certainly not a book critic and usually don't write reviews but, If saying something about this book will get just one person to be exposed to this amazing story teller then it was worth it. I was immediately hooked because of the way he writes ,his description of the town, characters and even his memories I felt like I was looking through his eyes. I am mid fifties and an avid reader and can honestly say that I haven't felt this connection to an author in many years. I too am a true crime buff and his novel reads like an early Ann Rule true crime book. And the pictures? Totally had me trying to second guess if it was fact or fiction.I am hooked! Thank you Mr Chiizmar for making me remember that reading isn't just to pass the time .
