5.0 out of 5 stars Harrowing stuff, 5 Sept. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Devil'S Knot (Hardcover)
This is a very important book about a horrific crime which took place in West Memphis in the early 90s - three eight-year-old boys were brutally murdered in a terrifying attack, and subsequent events led to the imprisonment of three teenagers for the crime, and yet there appears to be a dearth of evidence to actually link these suspects to the murders. These three suspects were convicted & are currently in jail (one is on Death Row), but there is a massive movement of people who subscribe to the view that the arrest was wrongful and that there are certain other suspects still at large who appear to have been inadequately investigated by the police. It's a tangled web, and one that is harrowing, intense, and quite likely to have you in tears. And it's still not over; there have now been two books about this, two films, and a new major movie is in production now about the events - read this book and make up your own mind. Considering the 'evidence' in this case, it's good that the author maintains as much objectivity as can be expected - there are times when reading this that you may feel, as I did, like banging your fists on the floor in exasperation at the incredibly inept investigation into this case, and it's then, on reflection, that you sometimes wonder about the reasons behind that apparently lax police work, and you hope that the hints here and there of hidden agendas are wrong, because therein lies the spectre of sinister goings-on behind the scenes. Let's hope the truth will finally be uncovered by the attention this book and the movie will bring to this case once again, and that justice can be done and the poor victims can finally be allowed to rest in peace.
