ON A COLD, SNOWY NIGHT IN 1985, TWO MEN BEGGED FOR THEIR LIVES.
In 1985, two 27-year-old friends left their suburban Detroit homes for a hunting trip in rural Michigan. When they did not return, their families and police suspected foul play. For 18 years, no one could prove a thing. Then, a relentless investigator got a witness to talk, and a horrifying story emerged.

FOR NEARLY TWO DECADES, THEIR KILLERS WENT FREE.
In 2003, this bizarre case hit the glare of the criminal justice system, as prosecutors charged two brothers, Raymond and Donald Duvall, with murder. With no bodies ever found, the case hinged on the testimony of one terrified witness who saw a bloody scene unfold-and who was still nearly too frightened to talk.

THEN A WITNESS TOLD HER CHILLING STORY
Now, the truth behind an 18-year-old mystery is revealed against the backdrop of an unusual, electrifyingly dramatic trial. Raymond and Donald Duvall bragged to friends that they killed their victims, chopped up their bodies and fed them to pigs. A Michigan jury soon had evidence of this brutally methodical execution-evidence that would lead a shocked courtroom through the heart of evil and beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Out of all the true crime books I have read, I liked this one the least. It was very long winded with not much action to take you through the same old, same old investigations. I would not recommend this book to avid true crime readers.

When my daughter told me of this book I remembered the newpaper headlines. So I researched it on the internet under Michigan murders. I found the name and went to B & N to find the book. When I got it I burned through the pages to find the true story. Then I read through it for the accuracy. It was the very area that my Dad and I hunted at the very time the murders took place and the murders still roamed the areas. I research the name of the roads and knew a few of the restaurants and stores. It truly was a scary book. I also went to the offends sites for prisons to see the pictures of the killers. Great book.

I kept wondering if I knew some of the people it was written about. My family camps in the area that these murders occured so it was intriguing to find out what all the others were talking about this past summer. It's hard to keep focused at times as the content which could have had a better flow. It seemed to jump around but I suspect there was limited information to go by. It was mainly focused on the cops and elaborated more about the careers of them and the prosecutors. It was tangential at times. Overall, it was suspenseful and the pages kept turning, chapters flew by but then it came to an abrupt stop. The content seemed like what the movie Fargo could have been based on.
