This author has now decided to set his sight internationally in order to illustrate that these maniacal individuals exist in the rest of the “civilized” world and has chosen to begin with three of the most infamous individual who all came from Colombia and who Mr. Rosewood has correctly described as being monsters due to what they’ve done to their victims, essentially all of them being children, as well as their sheer numbers: Luis Garavito, Daniel Camargo Barbosa, and Pedro Lopez.
Just read what the author wrote in the introduction to this book:
“…The three men who have set records for their kills each targeted children, using various tricks to lure them away from safety, including candy, money, and various disguises. And while it is unfathomable that together these three men are believed to be responsible for the deaths of more than 500 children, what is even more impossible to believe is that the punishments in no way fit their crimes…
…Each is the stuff of nightmares, and while Garavito is still behind bars and Barbosa is dead at the hands of a fellow prisoner, Lopez is free, his whereabouts unknown, making him a likely subject of many a horror story told ‘round a campfire…”
The stories of these three might be able to turn the stomachs of some readers who consider themselves psychologically strong enough to handle what I feel are extremely gory details of their actions.
As in the rest of the bookS he’s written, the author has included information of the childhood background of his subjects which could have set the stage for their actions.
For having taken the time to collection the information needed to write this book, and for presenting it in an enjoyable reading manner I’m giving this book 5 STARS.
The best things in life are free, which is why I consider myself fortunate to have once again won a mobi.file copy of this book through a giveaway the author had on LibraryThing. The above as always has been my honest opinion.
