5.0 out of 5 Stars

I was talking with an old friend of mine from Whitewater and she had mentioned this book. I lived in the Whitewater area around the same time and hung out at the same places. My usual Friday and Saturday night hangout was the Woodshed. I would meet up with a few girlfriends to have a few drinks, play pool. We would even go to the after bar parties and out to the cemetery for something spooky to do. Who knows, we may have partied or played a game with Kathy or even Crabtree! Scary….I thought the authors did an excellent job in writing Kathy’s story. It kept me hooked and had great flow. Ok, maybe a missing comma here and there but I think those were intentionally left out because of the conversations that were taking place. Great job I will be reading their other books too!

He Killed Our Janny – A True Story

5.0 out of 5 stars A page turner

ByKindle Customer on December 7, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A well written book. This makes the reader very angry to see how no matter. how much determination a family has, corruption can completely block any hope of getting the truth about the death of a loved one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Account of a Family’s investigation of Their Mother’s Death

By Maya on October 22, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

This book is a well written and detailed account of a Family’s search for justice for their mother. I would have appreciated more informed and research into the past lives of their mother and father to understand the psychological issues that caused them to behave the way they did. Why was their father such a brute? Why did their mother stay with him for 24 years? Why didn’t she protect her children.
In summary, the book is understandably one sided in the descriptions of the parent’s behaviors. The investigation into the crime once it was a cold case is very interesting and thought provoking. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the true crime genre.

Often, books written by family members are not well written or well put together but this was very much an exception!Read more

Until Someone Gets Hurt – Until_Someone_Gets_HurtA True Story

5.0 out of 5 starsJust started.. and just blown away by the details of the book..

on May 4, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I’ve started reading the book and I’m hooked. I told my husband about the basis of the book and he wants to read it after I am done. I heard about the book from Tyson’s father (who I bowl with) and he was telling us (one bowling night) about what happened to his son. I overheard a little and asked if this was a book he wrote or his son wrote and he said it’s actual events that happened to his son. Now I get to read all the actual details and I’m hooked and can’t wait to finish the book. I am just saddened that there are so many bad people out there but glad that justice finally won in the end (or at least they are behind bars)..

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant account of a REAL true crime.

on May 7, 2013
Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase
This should hit home for many of my friends because it happened in our backyard, and a few of them still have the culprit, Danny Garcia, as a friend. Not only is it a riveting page turner, that compels like any intense thriller you’d see on screen, but it was written by one of my longest and dearest friends that had to survive in more ways than one in order to tell the story of how these crafty (albeit sloppy,) con men, swindled, conned and eventually murdered a man. It was hard to read, but only because I know exactly how true this story is as I had details relayed to me over the last 7 years by one of the authors during his quest for truth. Personal relationship aside, this book is a must read. If you’re not much of a reader, you can bet there will be a movie about it. It’s THAT good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling Honest and full of under-covered secrets

on March 17, 2014
I have spent many nights reading and re-reading this book. It frightens me but it also brings me a sense of relief to know that justice can be served. This very well written account of greed & murder should be examined by all because it lets the good people of the world know that sometimes real evil dose exist and there are signs you might be able to see coming. I once knew the convicted Mr. Garcia pretty well as he was a patron of my artwork. This story shakes me to the core, and leaves me thinking ever bad people like pretty things. The legal battle that dragged on for years is in the court room is very detailed at the end of this book and is nothing short of shocking.

Aspen, Snow, Blow, and Bo – A True Story

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read

on September 5, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
I thought this was a really good read. Ive read one other book by this author as well and really enjoyed it. For all ranting about Ramona, notice the title… its a story about her brother… not her. Its a great book. Don’t judge a book by the crappy ratings because they “expected” it to be about someone else.
