    This is a good book

    This book was very, very scary. Unlike a lot of true crime books I've read lately, this one never slowed down. It also had a lot of crimes documented -- this isn't a one crime caper. The book is about a technical writer in San Jose named Brookey Lee West who kills her mother in Vegas and then stuffs the body in a garbage can. There are all types of connections to witchcraft and Satanism, and the crime scene photos are shocking. West also is suspected of killing her husband in Tulare County, California, and her daddy has a dark secret -- he's a devil worshipper. West's brother is also missing, and authorities suspect she killed him, too. The whole time I was reading this, it was hard to believe it was true, but it is. The crime scene photos are the most mortifying I've ever seen. This book gave me nightmares.

    I know that this is long, but if you read it I hope that it sheds some light on various issues

    At this point I have read a bit less than half of this book and I felt compelled to look at the reviews again to see if I'm alone in my disappointment, which I'm not. I do read reviews before I purchase books if they're available, but I'm aware that people can have wildly different views on these things as well. The writing in this book is painful to me at times in its awkwardness and flow, not to mention the redundancy. The extensive explanations about things like the history of the art of fingerprinting are not only unnecessary, but they go on ad nauseum. Some of the other issues that I have are more than likely not the fault of the writer, but the fault of BN and whoever is responsible for editing this book, along with myriad others, if anyone actually edits them at all, which is the direction that I find myself leaning. I take issue with the random hyphenation, for example. I am also annoyed by the fact that, once again, the "shocking photos" are missing. Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I operate on the idea that purchasing a book here will provide the same experience as buying the physical book. For someone who is using books such as this for research for a college class this is more than annoying. I'm tired of purchasing books that are not as advertised. On a note that is not about this particular book, but is about BN itself, I am extremely disgusted by the "customer service" that BN provides. On many different ocassions I have been treated rudely, even by those "higher up the food chain" than the people who field the phone calls. I will be purchasing a Kindle shortly and I highly recommend that others do the same. Unless, of course, you want to do business with a company who literally says that they don't care if you do cease to do business with them and instead choose a direct competitor. It makes one wonder if those who pay so little to the "editing" of the books are also directly responible (or irresponsible actually) for "assisting" their customers. In the interest of transparency, I did not contact BN to discuss my disappointment in their books, but with concerns about their business practices. I'll see if I can get through this book in its entirety, but I'm not filled with optmism that it will happen and it won't be the first time that I've abanded one one midstream.

    Did not include photos!

    Was supposed to include 8 pgs of photos, but i didn't. Abrupt ending. Good flow to story though.

    Interesting enough.

    This was a pretty interesting, although poorly written, book. I found the errors to be distracting, there was a lot of information repeated and it seemed to be written by a fairly unexperienced author, but it seemed well researched and kept my interest. I would recommend it.
