Publisher's Summary

In June of I985, while her teenage sons held their half sister down, Theresa Cross beat her I9-year-old daughter Sheila unconscious and then stuffed her into a 2' x 2' storage locker. After three days the knocking, kicking, and cries stopped. Theresa and her sons dumped the girl's body in the desolate High Sierras....
The summer before, Theresa had dug a bullet out of her daughter Suesan's chest with a paring knife. When Suesan failed to recover (without benefit of doctors or hospital), Theresa and her two sons drove the delirious girl to the mountains, doused her with gasoline, and set her on fire....
For nearly nine years, Theresa Cross Knorr got away with murder, until her youngest daughter, Terry Knorr Graves, finally found a cop who believed the incredible story of her two murdered sisters. That story is all here, the shocking life of a woman whose violence, jealousy, rage, and domination led to a brutally heinous crime of ruthless ferocity.

Shocking true story

This story was told in a way that helps you to understand how Teresa Cross had killed her own daughters. It took you back not only when Teresa was a child but also what her parents were like. It was also interesting the way that the different perspectives saw the story. There were different voices for different types of people in her life or the investigators. Very well done.

Good, but tragic.

Unbelievable what this horrible "mother" did to her children! It's also sad what happens to her remaining children since they were so young when it all happened. As far as the beast of a woman, she deserved more than what she got. This made me rethink my stance on death penalty.
