From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Stranger Beside Me comes a true crime story of a serial killer who was sentenced to die--yet lived to murder again....and again....

Overall not as good as some of Ann Rule's books but the first half or three quarters were great, and the narrator was great throughout (audiobook). The last few chapters on "was he or wasn't he" insane got a little overbearing, and could have been summed up a little quicker instead of questioning each little thing that the killer said, but as an expose I guess all that questioning of each sentence was needed. It just didn't translate into a great audiobook. Still, the author is great at delivering true crime books and 3/4 of the book was superb. Overall, recommend for true crime lovers. ( )

I usually love any book by Ann Rule, this one not so much. It was just a plain true story. Nothing like any of her other books. ( )

An interesting read. The story is well-balanced with personal facts about the killer and the victims and makes the problems with the justice system clear without being preachy. ( )

Ann Rule is very fair to both victim and villian in her writing. This story focuses around a young, innocent girl, Kathy Miller, and her mother's premonition of her fate. The result is heartbreaking and suspenseful. ( )

It starts with the heartbreaking murder of Kathy Sue Miller, then follows the police investigation as her killer commits more crimes, until his arrest and conviction. Written in a straightforward, unflinching style, Rule lets the horror of the crimes speak for itself. Very readable and gripping. ( )

This book is dedicated to the Families and Friends of Missing Persons and Violent Crime Victims, Seattle, Washington - with the author's deepest respect for those who have coped with disaster and changed it into hope. And to Gwen Burton, who had the courage to testify in open court against Harvey Louis Carignan. Without Gwen's testimony, there might have been no convictions.

Prologue: Mary Miller had a terrible nightmare in the late summer of 1957, a dream so real that she woke terror in the humid heat of that New York City August night, a dream so full of the portent of evil yet to come that it clung tenaciously to the cobwebby places of the mind where conscious thought rarely surfaces.
Harvey Louis Carignan's birthday was in May - just as Kathy Miller's was, possibly the only thing they shared in common.
