I thought this book was a real page turner. I cannot imagine the amount of time this author put into researching this story. It was thoroughly captivating!! When I think of those innocent years of the old neighborhoods when we would go out and play without a care in the world, it seems so long ago. However today children aren't even safe on their own front lawns. This story gave me the shivers. I had a foreboding feeling the whole time I read it. IT IS A GOOD READ!

This book is very well researched and written..a sad story how innocent young women were raped, murdered, and a 9 year old who didnt get to live her life..my heart goes to the victims and families..glad no one left this in cold case files and brought a rapist/murderer to trial....Bn

very well researched and written. Growing up in Nashville, I remember the day Marcia disappeared- I had turned 12 just 2 days earlier.

This was a very riveting read, hard to put down ..My heart was broken for the family AND community to have 33 yrs. go by before they got justice. The police, especially the Cold Case guys held on to the end. It shows how much times have changed , from kids playing outside to the advanced state of DNA testing in today's world...
