 In October of 2012, long before the release of "Amityville House of Lies", the author personally handed me a copy of some of her supposed "research". She also showed me and at least 10 other people "exclusive" crime scene photos, that practically no one else had ever seen. Having only been the second time I met this individual, I was excited to have been granted this information. Upon returning home, I decided to look closer at the documents I had been given. At the bottom of one page I noticed a web address. This is the address: [...] I quickly realized that ALL the photos she had shown us (as well as each one later used in the book) were right here on this site. Also, documents she claimed to have procured and letters she claimed were written to her from Defeo, were also stolen from this site and Ric Osuna. His book "The Night the Defeos Died" was originally published 03/28/02. Here is a link to the crime scene photos found in "Amityville House of Lies" pages 38-47. [...] Now, I'd like to address the book itself. It is, quite honestly, a literary abortion.© Not only is the content plagiarized, it's not even well written. I am tempted to say the only use for this book could be toilet paper, but then again, the words would still chaff my ass.© In case anyone is wondering, I am copyrighting my phrases to protect myself from "unnamed person". Wouldn't want to become yet another of her victims.

This book is so awful I think it gave me cancer, after doing a bit of research on the author I've found many other people citing her works as pure plagiarism, I can't speak to that because I have not, nor will i ever read another sentence by this abomination of a writer, all I know for sure is there is NOTHING new in this book, nothing a google search can't turn up. I doubt the author has ever been to scene, the flow of the material is all over the place as well, the most painful part of this book was the grammatical errors, If Mr Henry Bemis had come across this or any other book by this author I am sure he would have danced a jig when his glasses summary the only thing screaming "it's not's not fair" about this authors work is the tree it ends up printed on or the poor electrons that have to display it on your chosen electronic reading device...

Waste of money and time that I'll never get back! Book is almost completely plagiarized from other online sources. The grammatical and spelling mistakes are appalling. The author clearly is not a professional and I am at a loss for how this book was even published. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! Author should be prosecuted for stealing other accomplished writer's material and butchering it.

I was given an advance copy of this book for my honest opinion. My opinion, it was pretty good. In fact, as Amityville books go, this one is probably the best one I have read. London Knight gives us the facts and lets us decide. I think it was a hoax, and I have read just about every Amityville book there is.

More detail than most accounts and factual and historically broad.

This is unlike any other book that has ever been written about the Amityville murders (or anything else, for that matter.) It has many words in it that belong to no known language. It has many factual errors. Names are misspelled left and right. It has entire sections that were lifted word-for-word from online sources. Imagine taking several hits of acid and then sitting down at a keyboard and typing random phrases about a topic of which you know next to nothing. The end result would be something like this book.

For most of us we grow up on the story of Amityville. and most the books out there are a good night time scear read. but this book is the truth of what took place. At time the photos can be a bit hard, but all in all a good read. With all the info in one place it shows just what took place. The facts are all in one place making it an easy read. It is nice to see an author let the reader decide what they think is true. only giving the facts and not pushing it on you what they think.Something that is not seen much any more in an author when it comes to true crime books.

This is an easy read about a familiar yet controversial topic - what's up with that house in Amityville. The author presents crime scene photos, police reports, and even some interview information. This method allows the reader to come to their own conclusion. Throughout the text you get an idea (I guess the title gives it away) the author doesn't believe the haunted house stories. Yet they do their best to hold off on conjecture until the end. This book is different from many True Crime / Paranormal books as it is written very informally and conversationally. There is no sense of ego or "I'm the expert so don't question me" within a 100 miles of this book and I find that refreshing.
