    You people don't even know the real truth

    Everyone who reads this book does not know the real truth behind it. The book is based on the truth, a lot of which is just exaggerated to make it more interesting. The books is filled with information that is not totally the complete truth. Amazing how people do not want to see both sides of the story. Yes the book is well written, but only from Katheleen's family side of view is most information given. Pictures published in the book, should NEVER have been published.

    A book you cannot put down!

    I worked with Darlene Sanford years ago and knew of the murder before it was solved. It is amazing that Bill Lipscomb got away with murder for several years. This is a must read!

    You Never Know Who You Might Meet......

    This book is an incredibly accurate and horrifying story! Very hard to put down once you start. Bill Lipscomb was one of my instructors as I went through Military Training Instructor School, and he and I became friends after graduation. All the while I felt so sorry for him that his wife had been murdered, never realizing at the time that it was at his own hand.

    Satisfying Thriller

    This book has you praying that the police catch a killer who is as evil as he is arrogant.It really depicts the determination of the victim's family to catch this killer for it seems the sheriff's office did nothing for a couple of years.Very difficult to put down.

    Horrifying Outrageous Story

    Bragging after the fact, Bill Lipscomb actually thought he could get away with murder. His beautiful young wife, Kathleen, was the victim. And for some time, it seemed like he would. In cold blood, to advance his career, Air Force Master Sargeant Lipscomb killed his wife without one ounce of remorse. If it were not for the persistance of Kathleen's family, he may have gone on with his life and who knows what else. Irene Pence does justice to this story. She involves the Reader immediately. A 'one-nighter' book.
