    Another great true crime book by the author.  Mr. Phelps has the uncanny ability to take you directly to the crime scene as if you were there.  He also takes you back in time to see what makes these criminal tick and why they turned out the way they did.  Sixteen pages of photos help you to learn the details of the investigation.  This book my not be for everyone because of the subject matter  but I highly recommend this latest offering from the best true crime author around.

    Mr. Phelps is very good at what he does. I love reading his books. He gets into the lives of the persons involved and you get to know them intimately. I love that!

    As a big fan of Phelps I found this book disappointing. I have read most of his books & was enthralled but "Bad Girls" was slow & & didn't hold my interest. This does not change my fan status.

    M. William Phelps has created a true crime read with Bad Girls. This is the true story of Bobbi Jo Smith and her lover, Jennifer Jones. The two women were accused and convicted of the murder of a man in Texas. His bed-ridden mother was locked in her room during the murder. The story develops with detailed and well researched descriptions of both girls involved in the crime, as well as what may have propelled them to commit their violent act. The story involves tales of drugs, love, and twisted emotions that unfortunately resulted in a violent and gruesome death. The narrative is filled with quotes from all participants, and are included ad infinitum.

    Bad Girls is an interesting book, but is somewhat different than the author's previous works of true fiction. In this book, he seems to have taken the side of one of the women accused of the murder - Bobby Jo Smith. While the book leads the reader along a "she said/she said" history, it may ultimately be impossible for the reader to decide exactly which one of the girls pulled the trigger. Phelps takes quite a bit of time explaining Bobby Jo's unfortunate childhood, and was repetitive in places. However, if one can get past the relationship that was forged between the author and Bobby Jo Smith, the book certainly provides a bird's-eye view of one of the most atrocious crimes in recent Texas from the perspective of one of the accused. However, readers may have trouble sympathizing with either of the girls or their lifestyle.
