Enjoyed first half of book more than last. McDonough captures the crimes with great details..gives you a visual with her descriptions of Lane's murder spree---chilling. However, the second half of book was somewhat redundant. The author continues to go back to how she feels (survivor's guilt) one too many times. Don't mean to be insensitive, but the revisiting of this issue takes away from her initial words on this topic. Her description alone speaks volumes of the trauma it has inflicted, it's palpable. I think what the books is missing is the research into Lane's past and family history. Don't know if Lane's life altering intrusion into the authors life limited her delving deeper, or if subjects she needed to speak to refused her request, either way, the book ended with many questions unanswered regarding Lane's past. I however would still recommend to others.

It kept me reading/ Makes you realize how much families suffer, and in how many ways, after such callous killings happen. This family survived and still suffered afterword. The story told only like a mother could tell it. She is a wonderful example for all of us.

I think this woman wanted all the credit where the victims families were the most to loose and she just achieved celebrity status because of it
