This book is incredibly well-written and researched. I'll never look at guys with signs on the side of the road saying 'Will Work for Food' the same way again. What I liked about this book was the writer's ability to put herself in everyone's point of view. If you want a book that you can't put down that's a true story, buy this book!

Loved this book. After reading hundreds of true crime books and researching as many serial killers i could possibly learn about, tommy lynn sells is by far the worst i have ever read about. Just the way he can committ murder without even thinking about it or remorse gives me the heebie jeebies. Definately a must read

This book is excellent, well written, and very difficult to put down. I love true crime books, as I love learning how the crimes are solved, not who committed them, or their reasons why. However, this book, unlike the many other books I read, really spooked me. The way Tommy Lyn Sells killed his victims, his reasons, the fact that he travelled coast to coast, and, the fact that he really had no particular profile in terma of his chosen victims. He just picked his victims at random, and if an adult female, he brutally raped sometimes before killing her. I work the overnight shift as a nurse, and the location is very rural, and safe. I do take one 15 min break, which I normally walk outside. After I read this book, which is superbly written, I was not able to walk for 3 weeks from being spooked. I also waited for another co-worker to walk inside with me. It takes a lot to spook me. This book is that good. You will not be disappointed.

I literally had chills running down my spine as I read about the unspeakable brutality this beast inflicted upon his victims. It got the point where I couldn't read it night while my husband was gone because it was so disturbing. If you like to be scared to death you'll love this book and the stories of his unspeakable killings.

A must read for everyone who loves true crime. Sit back with your favorite beverage, lock your doors, no better yet your windows, and enjoy. Diane Fanning didnt miss a beat in this chiller. Somehow I missed hearing about the killer Tommy Lynn Sells. I ordered the book immediately when I saw it. I couldnt imagine the destruction brought on by this inhumane madman. To know there are people like this walking among us is freightening. If you only read one book this year make it Through the Window.

The book is written very well. Made me so sad to think that a child had to experience something so horrible. Thank God there were decent people that helped him to get through the aftermath.

I have read numorous books about serial killers and this book was the one that made me have to just stop reading for a second because how shocking & sick this mans crimes were. This book is very graphic and you can just picture what these men,women,& children went through at the hands of this truly savage man. If your looking for a shocker and into reading about serial killers or murder in general this is a must read for sure,this story is one you won't forget!

I would suggest this book to any true crime fan. I have read numerous books on this subject and am familiar with the stories of many serial killers. But none I have read about (Gacy, Bundy, Dahmer, the Hillside Stranglers to name a few) have been as riveting as this case. This book goes into great detail about each murder to the point where you become paranoid at every sound you hear, every stranger you see. This book is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

I bought this book not realizing how good it would be. Lately, true crime is nothing more then a bunch of newspaper articles put into a book. Well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat, 'Through the Window' is unreal! What is even more amazing is how many times Sells himself was facing death but managed to survive....ugh! There was only one editing oversight: One of the victims was referred to as 'Eileen' at first, and then the name became 'Elaine'. Other then that, you will want to read 'Window'.

Monsters do live. Heroes are among us. What this bastard did is more than reprehensible. I hope he burns in Hell. God bless the little girl who led the police to the capture. She's had more suffering than anyone should. The book really shows you how the murderer's mind works...and it's a scary place to investigate!

First book I've read by Diane Fanning, and I could hardly put it down. It was riveting, and I highly recommend. I will be reading more of her books.

Just a litany of atrocities. More a long piece of murder porn than a real book. No real narrative or themes explored, and essentially incomprehensible in parts. A stinker.
