The facts are brutally straightforward. On December 6, 1991, the naked, bound and gagged bodies of four girls - each one shot in the head - were found in an I Can't Believe It's Yogurt! shop in Austin, Texas. Grief, shock, and horror spread out from their families and friends to overtake the city itself. Though all branches of law enforcement were brought to bear, the investigation was often misdirected, and after eight years only two men (then teenagers) were tried. Moreover, their subsequent convictions were eventually overturned, and Austin PD detectives are still working on what is now a very cold case.
Over the decades the story has grown to include DNA technology, false confessions, and other developments facing crime and punishment in contemporary life. But this story belongs to the scores of people involved, and from them Lowry has fashioned a riveting saga that sounds like a Russian novel - comprehensive and thoroughly engrossing.

Good story ruined by terrible narration
This is such a heartbreaking, tragic story. It was difficult to get beyond the narrator. She is monotone and sounds like a computerized voice. It was like nails on a chalkboard.

I wanted to like this book
I am part of true crime book club. We are all very interested in the case of the yogurt shop murders. But the book chases so many extraneous details without explaining why they were even included, that I was lost most of the time. I already knew some of the basics about the case and was lost, so I would only recommend someone who is a complete YSM expert to listen to this book. I am moving on to Murdered Innocents. The sample of it sounds 10x more promising.
