First of all this author has done a great job putting these cases into a book. I have lived in KY for a few years now and drove down some parts of these streets and had no idea a crime happened so close. All sad cases but the one that really will stick with me is the case of little Joey who was two and a half years old. This book is easy to read and easy to follow. Every case grabs your attention to the point I could not put my kindle down. Great book and a must read
5つ星のうち1.0Author must have had a massive collection of courier journals
Each very short story is a mere abridged regurgitation of what appears in court records and the courier journal .. and these are not even the most notorious of murders in the state nor are they the most bizarre . Most are the unfortunate result of mental illness untreated. Don't waste your time on this book !
It's hard to write a review of individual stories about murder. They all were tragic in their own way. What I got out of them was that everyone has their own crosses to bear when it comes to personal family issues. What makes these stories sad is the overwhelming evidence that your loved one is either very sick or just tremendously angry. Their reluctance to acknowledge this and do what needed to be done to ensure everyone's safety caused them to lose their lives in despicable ways. Tremendously heartbreaking.

Eh not a bad read. It was an in between book for me as I couldn't decide what book to buy next and this one was short so I bought it. I'm not big on books like this because it's not rich in detail. I prefer the whole picture of a region and in depth insight of the all the main characters in the story. But if you like short ditties about a bunch of murder and mayhem in a quick read, this is the book for you.
I bought it to read more about Box Hill murders. It had what I wanted to read. Toured Box Hill when it was for sale a lonnngggg time ago. This is one of those cases that has always been in my brain. I think this book helped me understand the situation a lot more. Thanks
While I really enjoyed the content of this book, I am not impressed with the author. The book feels rushed and was not checked grammatically or for correct spelling of names in the book. I noticed several grammatical errors and DuPont Manual High School was referred to as Manuel High School. For me it is hard to read when I’m noticing errors that should have been caught prior to release.
This is a book featuring different crimes that happened in Kentucky. It is an easy read but a real page turner and I found it hard to put down. Kevin Sullivan did an excellent job writing this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to read about true crimes.
this was a good assortment of stories, even though they were small in size, they held quite a few details. glad to know they took a while to get the crimes done, they did. the criminals always do something wrong and the police find them.
I have not seen or ever heard of Mr. Sullivan being this excellent of an Author, but everything he has ever done is above the last book he wrote! There is not a cold case or old case he can't solved. He keeps you on the edge of the roller coaster, until you could never catch your breathe as soon as you go over!!! If I had to chose only one, out of these ten stories, I'd have to be ten separate people, I just couldn't do it. I think the only thing if anything I'd change..... Is be the mouse in the corner of the room where they were taken place! He is the number #1 in KILLER SOLVER!!! I love all the Authors at WBP no I'm not related to them, nor am I a secret writer! I just love all of them that I can't stop reading all their books and all new Authors! WATCH OUT FOR THE NEXT NEW AUTHOR AND NEW #1 BOOK TO COME FROM WBP!!!
