    As a resident of the Lewiston/Clarkston valley, I find Don Davis' book, A Father's Rage, to be absolutely enraging! OF course, I do not condone the acts of Ken Arrasmith, but the defense was right in asking, "What would you do in the same situation?" And as far as Cynthia staying with the murdered couple, think about the fact that she was almost constantly high on methamphetamines and being sexually, physically, and emotionally abused. Anyone who has been abused also will sympathize with the young, confused, and drugged girl. I can say that I would also take steps to make sure that my daughter was safe, and that anyone who abused or attempted to would pay the price... especially if the police were shelving the investigation! Read this book, and understand that if you are not a resident, you will not fully understand Ken Arrasmith's actions. Please contact me if you would like to know more about living in this area and what is really going on here!

    Back cover said eight pages of photos were inside, and there were none. No pages had been ripped out either, so was this some sort of promotional copy or something? Otherwise, a solid piece of journalism wrapped in a pulpy tabloid cover.

    Davis doesn't pretend that Ron and Luella Bingham were innocent. He goes to great lengths to describe in graphic and riveting detail their multitude of crimes against vulnerable young women and girls, including their eleven-year-old niece. One of those crimes landed Ron a (too short) term in prison. Very little of this information was allowed to be heard at the trial of Ken Arrasmith, who killed them after learning they'd sexually assaulted and fed drugs to his fifteen-year-old daughter. The depiction of said trial is where Davis's fairness comes to a halt. Sure, there were serious problems with Arrasmith's background and testimony, but I'm still surprised that Davis was even able to write what he must have considered a balanced account of the trial knowing how many lives the Binghams ruined. This couple were monsters out of every parent's worst nightmare, yet Davis can't relate to the outrage of Arrasmith's supporters, refers to audiences at the talk shows on which Cynthia Arrasmith appeared "idiotic," and points out that the judge, who was obviously biased in favor of the prosecution, made the right decisions. The book even includes photos of Luella with her mother and Ron surrounded by rabbits he bred. It's as if the author or his publisher wanted to see which way the wind was blowing during the trial, and it turned out that the prosecution seemed to have the upper hand, so that side ended up with more of Davis's sympathy. Sorry, they didn't have mine.

    This actually happened in my town and I knew some of the people who were involved. Not a great retelling of the facts.

    Because I live in the community that this is written about, it was a great read. The author did a great job of stating the facts and it was with both horror and fasination that I read the book. It is like driving past a car wreck and not wanting to look but you have too.

    "A Father's Rage", by Don Davis is a good try at an even handed telling of an explosive true tale of child abuse, dysfunctional families, drug abuse, and explosive violence. While the defense paints the father's murder of the Binghams as justified vengeance, the prosecution calls it cold blooded murder, pure and simple, with some speed induced paranoia as an additional element. Pre-trial publicity is widespread and the controversy is heated. The author covers the events in a detailed and conscientious manner, and the trial is wonderful true-life drama. All in all, a very adequate telling of a true story of our time.
