I know the sister of Brenda Sue Sayers so this book really hit me hard. It was very sad to see what happened to the family of Brenda Sue as well as Brenda. This man was sick and had no remorse for what he did to the people he killed. I was glad to see he got what he deserved. Good book with all the facts.

This is a fascinating, well researched look into the search for the killer of a small girl. I felt like I really got to know the people involved. I was so afraid the killer would get away with the murder.
