Not a bad book. It is well organized, but it's redundant sometimes. I liked that this book took the time to humanize the victims. There was a nice mix of story telling, investigative writing and insight into the mind of Sowell and the lives of his victims. I wonder if all of the quotes are authentic because it seems that lawyers, coroners, reporters and law enforcement officials are as eloquent as prisoners and crackheads. It was interesting to see how racism, drug abuse and destroyed social structures allowed Sowell to kill so many for so long a period of time.
