Publisher's Summary

A seven-year-old goes missing and his step-mother is the chief suspect. Two women, fifty years apart, make history for committing the most shocking of crimes. A father kills his three young children and his wife and impersonates a disgraced journalist. Oregon's most famous murderer explains how her jail breaks show she's ready for parole.

New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen (If Loving You is Wrong, Starvation Heights) and veteran journalist Rebecca Morris ("Ted and Ann - The Mystery of a Missing Child and Her Neighbor Ted Bundy"), take a new look at Oregon's most notorious crimes.

A Dark Disturbing Account of Real Evil

Kevin Pierce delivers another great narration, he is perfect for True Crime narratives and helping some of the less than stellar editing/writing. Olsen and Morris have a huge following of their True Crime books that compelled me to give this one a go. I wish I had picked any other of their books instead of this one due to the horrific brutality, tourchor and murder of children: by the very people they look to for love and protection. A very, very, very difficult listen; however, I am glad I stuck with it learning just how manacled; teatherd the hands of these courageous people are. Unsung heros who deal with the insurmountable frustration due to judicial procedure's that protect these evil monsters (usually the parent/s) preventing closure to some of the most horrific of these cases. Though the authors do not mention this narrative directly, the fact of it stands out all the same if truly listening/reading the contents; because that's what I took away from these unthinkable evil crimes, the men and women who face, persue, capture and attempt to convict them and not always successfully........
