Publisher's Summary

On any Sunday morning in the Florida Redlands, Dee Casteel might have served you pancakes at the IHOP.
She was a hard-working, cheerful waitress, one of the nicest people you'd ever want to know. She was also a three-bottle-a-day alcoholic, hopelessly in love with the IHOP's manager, Allen Bryant. Bryant wanted his live-in lover, IHOP owner Art Venecia, dead. And Dee Casteel helped him to arrange it.
After Venecia's murder, Dee and Bryant moved into his house, forged checks, spent his money, and embezzled from the IHOP to buy gifts for Bryant's boyfriends. But there was an even more gruesome killing to come.
Without Mercy is an engrossing, bizarre true story that traces the twisted path to a loathsome crime. But it is also the story of middle-class citizens gone wrong, of an almost-perfect murder, the traumas of alcoholism, and a legal system that can be deadly in itself. Dee Casteel was an ordinary woman - who now stands convicted of one of the most cold-blooded crimes of this century.

GREAT book within the True Crime genre

Without Mercy is one of the best True Crime stories I've listened to in awhile.

It was very intresting to hear how a seemingly everyday blue collar woman found herself wrapped up in such a bizzare murder plot.

One of my favorite parts of the book was the AMAZING narration from Kevin Pierce. He nails it every time!

I would recommend this book for any fan of the True Crime genre!

Very well-written book with excellent narration

What did you love best about Without Mercy?

This was a very interesting book that gave good details to allow the reader/listener to get an inside look at how Dee got herself sucked right into these murders.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Pierce – was your favorite?

This was not a book that required Kevin to perform characters. However, Kevin was an excellent narrator for this book. I would definitely listen to other books narrated by him.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Several times I got angry at Dee, rolled my eyes at her, shook my head etc. and could not believe she was doing all the crazy things she did.

Any additional comments?
