Wicked Intentions is a riveting tome full of crime, sex, money and unbelievable evil… . . . truly amazing.” —The Republican (MA)

One of the more chilling true crime books I've ever read. Author Kevin Flynn followed this tale right from the start and leads the reader through the same mounting horror he felt as the story unfolded. One of the best non-fiction mysteries I've ever read.
