    I cannot believe I paid $9.99 to read this book. I should have gotten a clue that I am the only person reading this. Do not waste your money, I skipped lot of pages because it got boring, maybe the author felt he should provide a lot of back ground. The unsettling part is, the case was never solved. This book should be on the $5 and under list.
