Phelps is the Harlan Coben of real-life thrillers. -Allison Brennan

"Phelps's writing reads like a mystery novel." -- Suspense Magazine

The crime stunned quiet Mineral Wells, Texas: 49-year-old Bob Dow shot execution-style in his own bed, his invalid mother locked in the next room--and a cache of homemade porn starring the town's underage girls. The two accused killers--teen lovers Bobbi Jo Smith and Jennifer Jones--were on the run, intent on going out in a cross-country blaze of glory. M. William Phelps exposes a gripping tale of sexploitation, lust, and betrayal, while questioning the court's fateful verdict in a tantalizing forensic puzzle. Were both girls equally guilty of murder? Or was one merely a pawn in the other's dainty, blood-stained hands?

"One of America's finest true-crime writers." --Vincent Bugliosi

Not Phelps' best work. He took a very difficult subject because he appears to be quite passionate about how one of the protagonists got treated. Trouble is - one of the girls is an admitted career liar, and the other one was abusing drugs & dope for so much of the time - she even admits she has holes in her memory. When all is said and done - only so much of the story could be verified by independent witnesses. So, if you have to disregard some of the 'confession' as being untruthful - don't you have to dismiss ALL of it?
