    Very disappointing

    After much anticipation, I have to say I was very diappointed with this book. From the very beginning, it is obvious that this was written to clear the name of Gene Leroy Hart of these murders and not to present new evidence. I was hoping for an unbiased, fact-finding presentation to allow the reader to decide based on the facts. This is far from that. Very disappointing.

    What a joke

    This is so poorly written it's embarrasing. Poor sentence and paragraph construction. Repeats same name: hart was seen in town and hart was seen driving. Hart was hiding. AND repeats same thoughts: campers would never forget that day...that day was one the campers would never forget. Awful!

    I live in Oklahoma

    I grew up in Tulsa, OK and now live just south of there but still return to Tulsa at least once a month. I can't believd ive never even heard of these murders until recently at age 21! My mother was 9 when it happened and she doesnt remember anything but my grandmother remembers it well after i asked her about it. How is this not in our Oklahoma History classes in school? Every other little detail is. The book.was so insightful and im taking it to my old Oklahoma History teacher to read next monday. This is something that shouldnt be forgotten.

    Good News for True Crime Addicts

    Follow the investigation, trial and conclusion of a crime that, although it happened over 30 years ago, may well be remembered as the most horrific nightmare that Oklahomans have ever endured, the heinous murder of three innocent little girls during their first night at Girl Scout camp. The author, Gloyd McCoy, leaves no detail uncovered, yet allows the reader to come to its own conclusions about the innocence or guilt of the accused killer. Read about how the residents of the county protected its "golden boy" football star from the police and the frustation of those involved in the investigation. This book just tells it like it happened without any of the Indian folklore and superstitions of the previous publications. I enjoyed every minute of it and hope you will too!

    A must read for anyone that is interested in more details on the case or just looking for a good true crime book to read!A+++

    This is a very good book about the girl scout murders and the trial that followed. When you are reading the book you feel like you are truly in the courtroom listening to the preceding as they took place so many years ago. The people from our community have been waiting for many years for a true book about what has went on and I feel that Mr. McCoy did a excellent job at doing exactly that! Even if you haven't ever heard of this case it is a very interesting book that will keep you turning page after page until you're done. There isn't a dull moment in this book. I highly recommend it to everyone I know. Awesome book!!!!
