Publisher's Summary

Richard and Victoria Tinyes feared the worst when their thirteen year old daughter Kelly Ann vanished from their quiet suburban community of Valley Stream, New York, on March 3, 1999. But the nightmare to come was worse than they could ever imagine. Only five doors away, in the home of John and Elizabeth Golub, police found Kelly Ann's body stuffed in a plastic garbage bag. She'd been brutally beaten, stabbed, strangled, and mutilated. After weeks of intense investigation, police arrested the Golubs twenty-one-year-old son, Robert - a reclusive young man obsessed with bodybuilding and given to fits of rage. The sensational trial and subsequent conviction of Robert Golub shocked the nation and tore the once peaceful community apart. Neighbors took sides. So did the media. And no one who lived on Horton Road would ever be the same.
Note on audio book: Except for the beginning and end of the book, there is no longer any music.

- Laura "Why ever would I do that?"


I've read a kazillion true crime books but this is hardly a really good one. This is less about the horrific murder of a young teen than it is an indictment of the family and friends on what is allegedly a bucolic Long Island neighborhood. The possible murderer takes a back seat to the uncivilized, animalistic actions of the victim's family in the wake of the crime and the people who lived on the street where the crime took place. As the wife of a murder victim, I can say first-hand that fighting among the families takes away from what a trial is all about: Justice For All. The adults' behavior was so outrageous that the listener completely forgot about the poor child who was murdered. Pass on this one.
