"Phelps gets into the blood and guts of the story." -Gregg Olsen

Killing Her Wasn't Enough. . .

Sixteen-year-old Adrianne Reynolds couldn't unravel the twisted tangles of jealousy and domination complicating her new life in East Moline, Illinois. What began as a fresh start after a troubled home life in Texas ended with Adrianne's body charred, stuffed into garbage bags, and scattered. It seemed the work of hardened criminals, but the truth was far more astonishing: her own "best friends" choked Adrianne to death and cut her up. Now, master crime writer M. William Phelps recounts this horrific saga of teen lust and violence in every gripping detail.

This is a very sad and disturbing story of a young life taken too soon. Phelps has done an incredible job researching and creating a timeline of the events that happened in the life of a young girl. He keeps your interest, page after page, until the facts come out about the disappearance and murder committed by "friends" of the victim. Warning, the events are disturbing.

This was an easy to read, well written book. It is a very unfortunate thing that happened, but the author seemed to do the needed research for it. It did skip around a little though.

This was yet another excellent book by by one of my favorite authors. Phelps gets to the point and keeps you interested without boring you with too many trial details.

This book was well worth the read. Perhaps a few had a hard time wrapping their head around the subject matter, but that's going to happen when it comes to youth and youth topics. Once you get beyond that, you get very involved.

This a truly sad and heartwrenching account of the murder id 16-year-old, Adrianne Reynolds by 2 deeply disturbed peers. Although the book itself was pretty good there were some glitches in chapters 77 and 78 where the same page kept appearing over and over again...

This book was very poorly written. The author rambles throughout and is unable to keep the readers attention. The character build up was ineffective and it seems just 2 people thinking and talking to each other. I couldn't even finish it because it was so mundane.

Yes. Remember how peaceful we thought the world could be after hands across America in the mid 80's . Recommended for our failures.

This true crime books takes readers inside the minder of teen murderers. Phelps allows us to get to know the victim, the family, and the teens that took the life of a classmate who simply didn't deserve it. This book kept me hooked from beginning to end- I could not put it down. Phelps is an amazing writer and one can tell from the first page of the book. I highly recommend it to those who enjoy true crime stories. This will not be the last that I read from M. William Phelps. A+++++++

This was my first Phelps book but definitely not my last. I couldn't put it down. He presents the facts and captures the agony around this sad case. I only gave it four stars because he was just a tad (unintentionally) preachy about ICP, but that's understandable to some degree. Bravo, Mr. Phelps!
