The title called out to me. I wanted to get my hands on this book to see what this book was about I didn't even read the blurb when I selected this book. Then I went to Goodreads to add it to my books I am reading, and I read the blurb. This is a story that takes place in the 80's and you can tell that the officers have their work cut out for them. It is not easy to capture someone so sick and twisted back then as you could almost do it now.
Let me say I no longer want my kiddos outside playing in the yard without me right there.
This story is of the serial killer David Penton who I do not know anything about. This is an account of his crimes by a detective who found the cold case of one of his young victims and never gave up trying to put Penton away. I have to say that this is a detective that every missing, kidnapped, killed person's family would want to try to get answers for them. Penton is a sick and twisted man, and while reading the book yes I could tell he was evil, but it didn't truly hit until the end when I got to the pictures of those little girls. The youngest being three, my heart broke. This author while writing about the crimes didn't go into the detail of what Penton did to his victims but you could grasp what he did and I am very surprised he did not get the death penalty.
You get a feel from the officers that were the first to learn of the crime that happened that it took a toll on them, and their family. And we always think about the victims family and how they are torn apart but we never think of the officers it affects. And this story touches on that along with the victims families, and those that were witnesses.Read more ›
Thoughts go out to all those that are left to mourn.
A good read well worth buying .
