Very intense and terrifying book. The author takes you into the unbelievable horror that goes on behind closed doors. Very descriptive but not overly. A very fast read and hard to put down once started.

I could not stop reading this book until i finished. This man is the most horrific man ever. He is a monster. I recommend the book unless you are faint at heart.

This monster needs to be put through the same HELL he put those people through. Let me get my hands on him once and prison will be a cake walk to him after that!!! It is hard to explain the sickness you feel about this freak when reading this book. This is a great book, but yet a horrible thing to read about. Be prepared for a gut wrenching story that should've never had to be written! It will forever be etched in your memory.

When I read the preview for this book I could not believe a man could be so evil. I finished the book in 8 hours, I couldn't put it down. A must read for true crime lovers.

I THOUGHT THIS BOOK WAS EXCELLENT! I READ IT IN 2 DAYS. JESSE IS A VERY SICK MAN. THE BOOK WAS VERY DISTURBING, BUT GOOD

This is the tale of the true tragedy that lives in our country everyday. Abuse comes in every form and the demon in this book mastered it and took glory in it. What is even worse, is he does not even take responsibility for anything he put Sherry, Anita, or the children through. This was a page turner that made me thank God that I do not have someone like that in my life. May God bless everyone he came in contact with and wash the pain and evil away. I would recommend this book for all over the age of fifteen, to show that looks can be deceiving, especially teenage girls!

This book was a good I didn't want to put it down. Yet at the same time I wanted to put it away and never look at it again. I was reading it and I wanted to throw up all over Mr. Cummings. I felt that he should have been turned in long before he was. I hope nothing that bad happens in my area because it was just sick. He was a very sick man and I just hope he rots in hell!!!!!! Litterally. If you are going to read this I hope you have a fairly strong stomach.

The writing was wonderful in this true crime story. The details kept the book interesting. The author keeps you reading.

I cried when I read this book. How could one man be so evil to harm women and especially little defenseless children? Jessse Cummunings deserves to burn in HELL! and he WILL like he deserves to. What a pathic little coward! This boook gave me mixed feelings, cause I didn't want to put it down but I couldn't believe the evil inside such a man and it made me sick, sick, sick. The story was well written under deficult circumstanses. I will be looking for other books by this outstandings and compassionate author.
