Overview

One By One They Begin To Die

On a picturesque street in Sacramento County, California, three healthy saplings stand side by side. But what they symbolize are the deaths of three innocent people-two of them children. And the man who allegedly took their lives, then eerily planted trees in their honor...was their own husband and father.

Shockingly, Mysteriously...

Hearts went out to Jack Barron when his wife Irene died mysteriously in her sleep. Soon after, when his two young children were also found dead in their beds, suspicions were aroused about Barron. Then, when his fifty-two-year-old mother died, also of asphyxiation in her sleep, the four deaths seemed too coincidental to ignore.

Were They All Dying For Daddy?

Was this "devoted" husband and father really a cold-blooded murderer who smothered his loved ones while they slept? Was he the victim of a bizarre syndrome, whereby a parent kills a child to gain sympathy and attention? With first-hand interviews and exclusive inside information, bestselling portrait of a man who may have been driven beyond his control to commit the most unspeakable of acts.

    Excellent and very suspenseful from beginning to end.

    This book captured your attention from the very beginning. I could not put the book down until my eyes became so tired from reading. There is a tiny bit of railroad jargon but the book was written so well that anyone could understand this particular jargon. If you like suspense, you will love this book. It makes you realize that you don't really know who your co-workers are.
