I read this book in one day. I couldn't put it down. And when I was done, I couldn't stop thinking about it!

I love how this book is written. The characters are introduced both at not-so wonderful times in their lives. In an odd way, they begin to connect with one another to tell their powerful story. I highly recommend this!

This book held me captivated from the start. I think Michael Finkle really dug deep into the soul of a murderer.

A journalistic account of the murder of three children and their mother. A gripping story about how a web of lies can turn your whole world upside down. An easy read that should give you something to read for about a week, but will leave you thinking about it for months to come.

I didnt buy it but i saw this and i decided to go to the library to try it. Well turns out this is real. Like, really real. Ever single comment and detail actually happened. It gives real brand names, places, and what shocked me-NAMES!!! I think this author wrote this book to try to persuade people to belive his side of the story. Its about a husband who kills his family. And he kills the kids by tieing a pillowcase of rocks to the kids ankles. And throwing them in the river! If you want a chiller story that shocks you and has you gripped and saying "WOW! That happened?" Than this book is definetly for you. And if you are uneasy about it, thats fine. You can just get a free trial or even read the book from the library.

Very intriquing. Listening to a professed liar tell the truth given to him by a professed liar/murderer is very...interesting. Michael Finkel has earned a second chance in writing/journalism. Christian Longo's story is very difficult because the author admits he doesnt know how much truth Longo is actually giving him. I'm not sure what to believe. The story of the murders of Longo's family is very sad and hearing Longo's lies about it are very disturbing. Michael Finkel knows he cannot lie again in writing so taking on the job of reporting on Longo's life is quite daunting because that man can lie. I'm not sure how much of the fast read was because of the intrique of the story and how much was how it was written. The book was definitely good to read, by I'm glad that I didn't pay full price for it. Good Library pick but maybe not a keeper.

Sad subject, but interesting.

Both the writer and the protagonist in this self-serving 'true story' are loathesome. But at least the writer had the grace to present himself honestly. Still, I wish I hadn't spent the money to go into either of their pockets. Ick ick eww.
