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.

~ Nightmare On Horton Road ~

This story had me riveted to the speakers! I don't know if this young killer actually thought he'd get away with murder...perhaps because the body *was* well hidden from view in the messy basement of what we call a "hoarder house" (jammed with STUFF) ? Who knows!

Not only was the crime itself quite horrendous, but the fact that the victim AND the killer lived on the SAME little neighborhood street, where everybody knows everybody, and just a few houses apart, made for QUITE the sub story! The hatred between the families that developed as the result of this murder, made daily life for everyone involved a living nightmare.

Even during the trial, the families, friends and neighbors couldn't refrain from constant outbursts of anger and threats towards each other. Obviously the victims family wanted the killers family to just leave their house, move far away and get out of their lives (and sight) forever - but they refused, believing their son was innocent. So the back and forth harassments went on and on. What a story! Held my attention every step of the way...even the trial portion. This was a great book! I will listen to this one again, yes indeed.

I really liked this narrator a LOT. His pitch and tone were perfectly matched for this case. Bravo!
