Publisher's Summary

This is a New York Times best-selling true crime book considered by many to be a classic of the genre.
The police in Jersey County, Illinois, accepted Paula Sims' story of a masked kidnapper who snatched her baby girl, Lorelei, from her bassinet. Three years later, her second newborn daughter suffered an identical fate - and this time the police were unable to stop searching until they had discovered the whole horrifying truth. This is the full terrifying story of twisted sexuality and hate seething below the surface of a seemingly normal family and of the massive investigation and nerve-shattering trial that made the unthinkable a reality. Written by the lawyer who won the case and the reporter who covered its entirety, the listener is given a unique close-up of the riveting drama that unfolds, painting a dark picture of the depraved family who lived with a murderous secret.

A true life story of human evil!

This book gripped me from the start!

The person whom the book centers around, Paula Sims, is one of the strangest and hardest to understand people I could imagine. Her actions are beyond the comprehension of most people (I would hope). The book mainly discusses her prosecution, but also gives a background story of her and her family. There is some speculation, especially as the case is built against her, but in the end, you find out the truth. It is an appropriately horrifying end to a tragic story of human evil!

- E F "...I love listening!"

A must listen!

This book is very well written and very well narrated. Kevin Pierce is by far my favorite narrator. He really brings out the emotion and sincerity in the authors work. I especially liked that this book is co-authored by the prosecuting attorney in the case... It lends a deeper level of personal touch and honesty to the story. I think Don Webber might have a "fall back" career if the DDA gig doesn't pan out. I will definitely be keeping my eye open for the next one. This is a very tragic, heartbreaking story that I wish was a work of fiction... Thankfully Susan Simms decided to let her "Rumplestilskin" out in Don Webber's jurisdiction.
