    Inaccurate and ill-written

    This book is absolutely full of inaccuracies. The author never spoke with the Wilberger family while writing the book and appears to have simply "cut and pasted" the majority of the information from news stories and court records. Despite quasi-plagiarizing the majority of the book, he still mixed up names, dates and events. Furthermore, when he didn't have court records to go off of, he simply made up facts. Dozens of the facts in the book were fabricated by the author for the sake of the story, many of which could have been corrected by the family had he taken the time to contact them. For example, the author states that Brooke excelled at tennis, ate corn flakes for breakfast, surprised her family by choosing to go to BYU and that Tom Sherry was the family spokesperson. Brooke never played tennis, no one knows what she ate for breakfast the morning she disappeared, everyone suspected that she would go to BYU and the Wilberger family never had a spokesperson. Finally, the author's writing style is awful. He makes the book out to be a personal story about the life and death of Brooke Wilberger but wrote it as a glorified court document. There is no emotion, no insight into her life and awkward wording that makes the book a ponderous read at best.

    Brooke Wilberger was an incredible person who deserves a proper biography. Scott's book is a lame attempt at nonfiction literature. Don't waste your time or your money.

    Good Guys

    A little outdated compared to other current writers of Historical Romance.

    It more on the style of Roy Rogers and Gene Autry

    Juvenile and laughable

    This book was written by someone with very little knowledge of the old West, its culture and its people, and it showed through in every poorly written, labored line. The western lingo was laughable, the characters were one dimesnsional and unbelievable, and what plot there was, was very juvenile and overly predictable. I definitely won't be reading the rest of the series.

    So sad

    Such a sad story but very informative. Thank God Joel Courtney took the plea deal to give Brooke's family some closure.
