    Really True Crime

    The book is a combo true/crime character study, with the main player a woman named Sarah Pender, who walked out of an Indiana prison in summer 2008 and became the most wanted woman in America. Despite an ambitious manhunt, she was free for over five months, eluding U.S. Marshals and even befuddling the TV show, America's Most Wanted. The book is solid; it reads in most parts like a fiction thriller. The character sketches create even more interest in the story itself; Sarah is unstable but extremely intelligent. The prosecutor was a gifted wanna-be actor and the main pursuer was a cop on the rise. We also hear about just how Sarah stayed free for all that time - I don't want to ruin it for others, but that in itself is compelling. The author takes some pokes at the Indiana prison system that may not be called for; but his reporting seems to show that it's not the most secure in the nation.
