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
Very well-written book with excellent narration
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.
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.
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.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the
author, narrator, or publisher.
