I was just a little girl when Danny Rolling murdered the five college students. As a fan of true crime stories, I really enjoyed this book. It was just right with the formula. Not bogged down with details but at the same time no little details were lacking either.
I will admit that the murders are very gruesome. It is no wonder that the detectives had nightmares. There was a few times reading this book that I almost put it down for a moment. While, I did not know any of the victims of Danny Rolling; I felt a strong emotion to all of the victims.
I agree that while it was good to see Danny be executed; his punishment did not fit the crimes he committed. This book was a one day read for me. A surprising fact was to learn that Kevin Williamson, creator of the Scream movie franchise found his inspiration from the Gainesville Ripper murders.
