Janet MaslinAs a boy in St. Louis, Mr. Heidenry came into close enough proximity to the kidnapping of 6-year-old Bobby Greenlease in 1953 to have developed an enduring fascination with it. That fascination has yielded a tough, gripping chiller of a book, written straightforwardly yet cloaked with the trappings of pulp fiction…bears a resemblance to [In Cold Blood]. It too is clean, cool, hard-hitting and even clinical in its efforts to fathom a tale of unconscionable destruction.
