Publisher's Summary

Filicide is the intended act of parents killing their children. The act is also regarded as an offense since it amounts to murder. It appears to very unnatural for a parent to end the life of his child. As much as this appears to be inhumane and unimaginable, there are some parents who kill their offspring.
We consider mothers to hold the highest status in our lives. For a son, there is no greater being on this planet than his mother. She gives birth to the child, cares for him when he is at his most vulnerable stage, unable to eat or drink, and she feeds him her own milk. Suffice to say, the role of a mother is one that cannot be explained properly in words. What she does for her child is the real example of true love; she does everything for him without ever wanting anything back.
The case files in this book go against everything we have been taught and have learned. We perceive mothers to be the epitome of care and support, yet mankind teaches us cruel lessons.

Three Stars All Around

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Have no recommendation as to the purchase of this book either way. Personally, I'm satisfied.

What aspect of Don Kline’s performance would you have changed?

Don Kline tends to speak in phrases, which was okay once I caught his rhythm. Pretty much a matter-of-fact narrator.

Any additional comments?

The book isn't great but it's reasonably well done and, based on the stories I knew beforehand, quite accurate.

Well Done!

I enjoyed the listen! I had only heard of one of the cases (Yates) and there was actually an update I was not yet aware of. The author did a great job of providing possible motives to these horrible crimes and then showing the example. If you enjoy true crime, you will definitely enjoy this book!
