    No Regard for Human Dignity

    This is a true story of how evil is so much a part of the world in which we live because of deranged or possessed people--you decide. It is also the story of how the police force is not always there 'to protect and serve'; sometimes they are not even 'there'. The book is a compilation of facts that anyone could have thrown together. Steven Williams has done great research and is very knowledgeable about the subject, but his dismal style is long and drawn out. He could easily have eliminated 200 pages of irrelevant text. If you want a list of all the horrifying criminal activities of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka with the Canadian police force missing every clue along the way, then this book is for you. If you want a well-written story that gets to the point, then I suggest you pass on this one.

    These two are bad news!

    For those of you that dont know, Karla Holmolka has been out of prison for several years. Someone tell me why this horrible woman was able to get out of jail when she helped her sick partner turned husband committ every single one of these crimes including murdering and raping and sodomizing her own 16 yr old sister! Those poor parents lost their innocent daughter and their other daughter is guilty for the crime. Ive read many true crime books but i dont think i have ever read such a horriffic story. So where is she now? Just watch your back!

    Too Many Gory Details

    Although i pretty much liked reading this book it is not well written. Too much attention was placed on the gruesome details. Paul Bernardo disappears at the end of the book and all the emphasis was placed on Karla. The author could of cut out about 100 pages and i would have gotten his message. Karla's interviews go on too long and Paul is nowhere to be seen or heard. It should also be update as Karla is now out of jail and married with a child. (!)

    Couldn't finish the book. to disturbing.

    I bought this book because I was interested in the case. But it was so graphic in detail that I couldn't finish it. the way they killed the girl Kristen was just to awful. If you like a book that is very detailed, then read it. But if you are tender hearted, pass on this one.
