I was very anxious to read this book, and it was worth the time. It is a really good book – very well written with well-defined characters. It was obvious that a lot of research went into this book. I knew the basics of this crime, but not specifics. It is the story of The List family, who were murdered by John List – husband, father, and son to the victims. There is a lot of background material on John List, to show what made him tick. But still, he knew exactly what he was doing and planned every aspect. This book made the victims come alive, to always be remembered. My heart broke for these victims that only wanted love from their killer. I still remember the bust of John List that was presented on AMW. It gave me chills when List was arrested and the resemblance was so close. It is a great book. I highly recommend it.
