Overview

TWO INNOCENT TEENS

The crime was unspeakable. On a summer night in Houston, two bright, beautiful , success-bound teenage girls crossed paths with a group of young men fueled with alcohol and rage. Four days later, when searchers finally found Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena, their bodies were unrecognizable.

AN ORGY OF VIOLENCE

At first, the teenage boys grabbed Elizabeth, while Jennifer escaped. But Elizabeth's desperate cries brought Jennifer back to help her best friend. Both girls were subjected to sexual assaults of every conceivable kind.and long, painful, drawn-out deaths.

NO MERCY

For days afterward, the killers bragged openly about their crime. By the time prosecutors got the case, convictions for double murder looked like a "slam dunk." But the families of the victims were in for a horrible surprise. In this terrifying case, justice would be a torturous journey.

    Captivating

    With so many individuals involved, I was impressed how much background was given and how well the writer keep everything flowing. I did feel some areas were redundant and found myself skipping paragraphs.

    I was VERY disappointed to find the advertised photos were omitted. I would like an explanation as to why.

    a good read, but no photos

    I had never heard of this case despite the fact I live in the Lone Star state so I read the story with great interest. I was disappointed that the Nook version did not include the photos that the paper version promotes. I've looked online to see if the photos were available, but wasn't able to find any. The pictures are important to set the scene in the reader's mind.

    I can definitely tell the a lot about the author's opinion regarding the death penalty. It would have been a better read if the writing was a little more neutral. The writing boarded on ranting in some chapters.

    I did think the author did a good job detailing the case. A word of warning that description of the crime is quite graphic. I would certainly read more work from this author.

    photos

    I downloaded to the Nook touch color and NO PHOTOS were downloaded. Having my degree in Psychology and going on to study Forensic Psychology...the photos were the main reason for having bought the book.

    Highly Recommended - hard to put down!

    This book was hard to put down...The author did an excellent job at describing how evil these people were and what those poor girls went through. I told my daughter it's a book she should read because it enlightens parents as well as children to the dangers that do exist unfortunately in our society and that just an innocent shortcut to save time cost these girls their future. It's a must read...worth every penny!!!

    TRULY HEARTBREAKING

    While reading you felt so connected to the families and what they were going through. All of us need to know that there are monsters like these that live in our own communities. Very good book!

    Excellent.

    I loved the way the author described each person. The story flowed smoothly. It was hard for me to put it down. Finished reading in two days. Did not bore me with trial details. Started the story and smoothly finished it up. Would like to know the outcome of the other guilty participants.

    Heartbreaking

    I lived thru times like this as a teen, but was lucky to leave with my life. This book reads like you are right in the thick of things, and the sheer toture these girls go thru will make u want to cry. So realistically written, this book shows the unimaginable cruelty that teens can lower themselves to, and the mob mentality that takes over and will make a teen actually kill for no damn reason but to go along. God bless those poor families left to pick up the mess afterwards, read this book and u will feel the same way.

    Well written

    This is great book that just does not highlight the crime. It gives you the background of every person. And show's the love and courage the family had in bringing these men to justice. This book truly touched me as a parent and made me question our justice system. Whey these men were allowed to sit so long on taxpayers dollars for taking the lives of 2 young girls is beyond me. A great read and one that touches you and does not leave.

    Not worth the time

    The story is interesting as are most crime stories but the writing is pedantic and the writer takes 300 pages to say what they could have said in 100 dont waste ur time
