    Fascinating book! This book contains accounts of various murders which happened in South Carolina, both solved and unsolved. It was very interesting reading. I highly recommend it to other true crime readers.

    I was a little disappointed in this. The cases were interesting but it seemed like there was a lot of repetition in including parts of the trials; info that had already been told in the synopsis of the crime. However the writing was good and as I said the cases were interesting and unknown to me.

    This books was really interesting. Here are my opinions on all of the cases: (1)Ax Assault And Murder: It seemed like Samuel Wright Jr. was guilty of what he did. He even confessed to doing it. The last minute revelation by the grandmother seemed like just a desperate attempt at trying to save him from being executed. I feel bad that Mrs. Stroman was killed over something so trivial. (2)Death Of Amos Bowers: It's difficult to say whether or not West was guilty. They sort of only briefly mentioned This books was really interesting.

(2)Death Of Amos Bowers: It's difficult to say whether or not West was guilty. They sort of only briefly mentioned some rumors of infidelity between Amos and West's wife. That could've been a possible motive for the crime. I guess we'll never know now. (3)Kidnapping Of Nancy Amaker: The suspect was a lifetime criminal. He doesn't seem to be able to be rehabilitated. I don't believe his claim that shooting the victim was an accident He deserves to be in prison for life and his wife should be ashamed of herself. She knew he went around robbing people and didn't do anything about it. (4)Murder Of Joyce Robinson: This one was sort of weird. The suspect never gave any reason as to why he murdered her and I was just left wondering what could have made him kill her so violently. It was really sad because she was engaged at the time and had her whole life ahead of her. This case does make me thankful for DNA technology though. (5)Murder Of Elaine Fogle: Unsolved crimes are always so sad and disturbing for me. I bet it must be awful for the family not to know who killed their relative. And there's added grief because she was also raped. It's just terrible. Hopefully they catch the person who did this.

    Murders in small towns The author tells you of murders that occurred in small Carolina towns some before DNA testing. All but the last one has been solved. The first is from the 50's and shows how investigations have changed over the years.
