    A Must Read Bood

    There was no question in my mind that I would be purchasing this book. Not only is this an EXCELLENT book, but it's also relates so closely with my personal life...my aunt(Joyce Tharp)was one of the victim's who was murdered at the hands of this killer. Paul Echols did an outstanding job outlining his events that eventually lead to these murders being solved. When I began reading I couldn't put the book down. Many of my friends, relatives, and co-workers have all purchased this book as well.

    I found this book fascinating. To read a book from the point of view of a young patrol officer becoming intrigued with a homicide. If he hadn't, I doubt this case, and many others would be solved.

    I have heard a lot off and on about how certain cases irritate an officer so much that in their spare time they tend to become obsessive with wanted to solve a case. In this book we join as he slowly crawls up the ladder in the department until he can tackle the case that always bothered him. How things were put together and solved is quite astounding. 

    I really believe if Lt. Paul Echols hasn't put so much time into tracking things down, many families would not have the closure they now have.

    It was a VERY good read.
