    This is a great book about a crime so heinous it will make you want to cry while making you angry while you are sitting at the edge of your seat...It still baffles me to this day how many evil people are out there with sweet faces. The author makes you feel the absolute terror this woman must have experienced before she was violated and mutilated. Then to feel The helplessness of the family as they await the fate of a newborn they have never even laid eyes on but loved so much. Narrator was great.
