Publisher's Summary

After killer Shelia Eddy pled guilty to first-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison and Rachel Shoaf was sentenced to thirty years for second-degree murder, family, friends, investigators, and other key sources reveal the facts you would have learned if the case had gone to trial.
Including specific details drawn from Rachel's confession, Pretty Little Killers looks at the crime through the eyes of the victim and killers, providing intimate testimony from the pages of Rachel's personal journal, Skylar's diary and school papers, and court records. Daleen Berry and Geoffrey C. Fuller examine all this, including previously unreported details about Rachel and Shelia's rumored lesbian relationship, and explain why more than one investigator believes that Skylar's murder was a thrill kill. Most important, Pretty Little Killers provides a satisfying answer to Skylar's final question: "Why?"

"I finally decided to get this....

"Because I had read reviews that were not so great, but I caved because there is nothing else on this case . I agree that it is generic info that doesn't tell the listener any new details and you will only be ingesting the Twitter and Facebook posts Already released .
This book felt so rushed and written so quickly after the tragedy that the book doesn't even include the pleas of the girls.
I hope a more thorough book is published with the answer to the fundamental question that this book did not answer, which is WHY? Why did they do this and "because we didn't like her isn't cutting it." Someone needs to delve deeper into what was going on in the minds of the girls".

Good writing, not convinced on the narrator

What did you love best about Pretty Little Killers?

I liked the in depth and intelligent way they approach the case.


What did you like best about this story?

I like how the writers with us, the reader, try to understand how something like this could happen.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I'm not sure Pam ward was the right choice for this. She is a good narrator, but I agree with some other people that she may be percieved as judging grandmother. To appeal to the age group that should listen to this book, I think it would be a good idea to choose someone with a "younger" voice.
