At last, the seemingly impossible case to solve had answers no one ever considered.On Christmas Day three years ago, two grandparents, their son, his wife, their two small boys, their daughter, and her boyfriend gathered to celebrate the holiday. For reasons that are still almost impossible to contemplate, the sister and her boyfriend shot and killed everyone in the room.In these chilling true stories, Ann Rule reveals the dark underside of the American family unit—together and torn apart.

    I love Ann Rule books. She gets right to the heart of the matter, narrates the unfolding of a crime and presents an interesting scenario. I liked this book, and have read almost everything Ms. Rule has written. I am less fond of the format of including several stories in one book. It's picky, and a personal taste. This book is definitely worth the read.
