5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best true crime book I have ever read.
Without the persistence of a determined grandmother,this could easily have been recorded as a case of accidental death.This chilling account of the callous murder of a young girl is an absolute must for all fans of true crime.The author has produced a chilling book which is impossible to put down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking, 23 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
This book drew me in more than I expected. I like reading about how the bad guys get caught and punished, but while this book covers that, it also gets you involved with the lives of Renee and her family. I cried while reading about her funeral and grieve for this little child. I was left wondering about the legal system which failed to protect her, both the legalese which forced her to be with a dangerous parent in the first place, and the apathy of the investigation immediately following her death. I applaud the tenacity and courage of Renee's mother, grandmother, the detective, district attorney and forensic pathologist who fought to make sure the killer was caught and convicted. And to the killer: it's a grave injustice that you still draw breath.

5.0 out of 5 stars factual, 7 Dec. 1997
By A Customer
This book is a truly factual account of the events leading to the murder of a child so that the killer would be released of financial responsibility.
This little girl ate pizza and drank koolaide then fell asleep, never to wake again. The coroner sluffed the cause of death off as undetermined, never thinking the child would identify the killer from the grave.
I know the truth, I was there for the second autopsy, I was the Detective who saw Renee speak.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book was very well organized., 17 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
At the recomendation of Sue Dietrich, the detective responsible for the investigation and a college professor of mine, I read the book and found it to be one of the best true crime books I have ever picked up. It was hard to put down, and great to learn from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you for your support..., 18 Sept. 2007
Ive read the book, many times, and yes Carlton did a wonderful job... But living the story was much more frightening and a deep sadness that will never fade. Ive missed almost 14 years with a sister that should have never been lost. Thank you for keeping her memory alive

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but incredibly sad, 31 May 1998
By A Customer
This was one of the saddest true stories I have ever read, and I have read quite a few of them. My heart and prayers go out to little Renee Goode and to her mother and grandmother and the other courageous women who fought so hard to bring her killer to justice! I hug my twenty month old granddaughter daily and thank God for her. God bless Renee!

If you like true crime you will like this book. A mothers instinct knew it was the father, how any father can do that for money is beyond belief
