Publisher's Summary

"We gotta kill 'em. They know what we look like."
On a hot summer night in Houston, two teenage girls-bright, beautiful, success-bound friends took a shortcut home from a friend's apartment to make their curfew. They never reached their homes. The next morning, the families of the two girls began a frantic search, organizing friends and neighbors and posting thousands of fliers across the sprawling city. But not until an anonymous 911 call four days later were the bodies of Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena finally recovered. Their killers were soon rounded up - a brutal, unrepentant gang of teenage boys whose convictions should have put them behind bars for life. But in the halls of justice, nothing is ever a sure bet....

One of the most intense book EVER!

Any additional comments?

The teenaged rapists/killers in this true crime book are the most despicable, horrible and animalistic people I could have imagined existed in this world. Their total lack of remorse was disgusting and made me even angrier. They could have been stopped many times but they were always turned loose after car thefts, assault, robbery and other vicious crimes. Their parents did not stop them, the police did not stop them, and the court system/parole system did not stop them. As a result, two young innocent beautiful girls paid the ultimate price.

Read this if you dare - but the description of the horrific rape and murder of the girls may leave you beyond angry and sad. It lasted more than an hour and each minute of it is beyond understanding. This book is absolutely unforgettable. The writing is fast paced and interesting. The narrator is very good.

Too many jumps in story

If you like in depth detail on the actual trials of the killers this won't deliver. This book revolves more around the emotion of the families rather than the actual crime.
