Publisher's Summary

A gut-wrenching true-crime account of a couple on a twisted killing spree in the American South.
Evil has a way of finding itself. How else could you explain the bond between Alvin and Judith Ann Neelley, who consecrated their marriage in blood? Before the killings started, they restricted themselves to simple mischief: prank calls, vandalism, firing guns at strangers’ houses. Gradually their ambition grew, until one day at the Riverbend Mall in Rome, Georgia, they spotted Lisa Ann Millican.
Three days after Lisa Ann disappeared, the 13-year-old girl was found shot and pumped full of liquid drain cleaner. In between her abduction and her death, she was subjected to innumerable horrors. And she was only the first to die.
Drawing on police records and extensive interviews, Thomas H. Cook recounts the story of Judith Ann Neelley, who at 19 became the youngest woman ever sentenced to death row.

Tedious and ponderous

The story is reads like a police report, full of tedious details. The narrator seems to only have three voices: one an overly deep and dramatic pompous voice, a high pitched southern drawl and a low pitched variation southern drawl. All sound ponderous and overly theatrical, but it's hard to tell who's speaking when the entire story is limited to only these voices. I couldn't finish it.
