Review Text

    We are not big reviewers, but we are big readers--and big fans of Stella Sands, who is a talented true crime writer in an often lackluster true crime world.In this post, however, I'd like to put aside the writing of the book for a moment and focus on the reviews themselves. IT SHOCKS AND DISHEARTENS ME THAT AMAZON IS ALLOWING SUCH FALLACIOUS, UNJUSTIFIED REVIEWS TO REPRESENT THIS BOOK. A vast number of these reviews are self-admittedly from friends of Annie Le. Readers: book reviews are not personality contests. Nor are they forums in which unsettled feelings should be vetted. They are places to discuss the book, and the book only. The very thought that people are offending and threatening Stella Sands makes me question this entire system. Call me old-fashioned, but we've wandered so far from what a virtual book group is about that it makes me sick to my stomach.That said, as far as I can see, Stella Sands has no personal vendetta here. She offering the full story of Annie Le--pure and simple. She did her research. The book is clear and well-structured and BASED ON FACT. Nothing is hateful or spiteful about it. She is not profiting off of anything any more than journalists profit from hard news stories. P.S. Why is everyone so sure that she is not donating the money as the victim's family so wished? Does someone have some insider knowledge here? If so, this is not the place to present it!We enjoyed it greatly. If you're a true crime reader, a sympathetic ear and a lover of good prose, you will too.Finally, we hope that Amazon will take note of the horrible way these reviews have gone. And, more importantly, we hope that readers will not be deterred from reading Stella Sands' work and this book in particular because of it. This is a heartbreaking, important story and one that deserves a Sunday on the couch with this. To Annie Le's family and friends because they seem to be present here: what a terrible terrible loss. We are so very sorry.Thank you,Herb and Ellen

    Honestly, if you haven't read the book, DON'T write a review. We don't care what you think -- It's a crime to take your anger out on Stella Sands who is just trying to portray the truth about what happened.As you may or may not know, Sands has written several true crime books - that's her specialty - and she's great at what she does. She isn't trying to make a profit on someones death. She's a writer, just like the newspapers and magazines write about murders all the time.I'm pretty sure the people who are grieving should not be writing reviews about this book. You people are one-sided and out of control. We're sorry for your loss, but taking it out on an innocent person is horrible.YOU should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Living in the area my whole life..this author got the set up of New Haven geographically and the racial makeup perfect.Her knowledge by asking questions of the right people allowed her to understand alot of inner feelings on every sideof the background. She must be a quick study as they say. I knew many of the lawyers that she interviewed and personallyfound that informative as some I never knew made any comments on the case. I can tell you this is the first case of a personmissing only 24 hours that got so much activity going immediately. Never do I remember the 4 major police departmentsbeing called in immediately..in fact before it was even established that a crime was committed. It was still thought be shetook off someplace. The FBI? Immediately? Unheard of.there was no slight evidence she was kidnapped. But they arelocated a couple of blocks down the street and New Haven is a very small city in area so that might explain their quick interest andhelp.I don't know why anyone is criticizing her repeating what Larry King said or some ABC queen or anyone else..she gave thecredit where it was due. Most books written know about famous events are begotten from writing other history books and thengiving them credit. Her repeating the rumors that were being tossed about might have seemed offensive to her family or friendsbut she only was repeating what was being said or wondered about. She got the tone perfect. She was of course sympathetic tothe poor girl and explained the killer's background perfectly....the fact that so many people who knew him couldn't believe hedid it..had to be explained. Well he has never explained it. He has a monster living in him and at times he allows the monsterto take over.The only offensive comment in the book came from Clark's father who proclaimed that he was proud that his son came forwardand admitted what he did and took responsibility.That was sickening..seeing as Raymond Clark did horrendous things to her during the murderous event...threw her lifeless bodyinto a wall like a piece of garbage and then proceeded to do everything in his will to cover up the scene. Including but not limitedto lying to police the next day about her schedule and where she was last. He hid all of the bloody objects and clothing andhad a jolly good time playing baseball a few days later. It was only when there was so much DNA and card swipe evidence andvideo and(his change of clothing that day) more proof than even his lawyer could care to deal with that a plea deal was eventually asked for.No dad..your son was a sexual predator..murdering monster.. his second rape or attempted rape. Dad you should have justapologized and left it at that. Before he was charged you and your entire family acted very arrogant. To this day mostpeople believe that his girlfriend and his sister were involved in covering up the crime. I don't know. I remember however theirbehavior.He was lucky..I would have gone to trial and given him the death sentence..but Ct loves to save the court money...so with goodbehavior he'll be out before anyone can believe it.Of course the author should have waited for the trail and the plea..it would have improved the ending ..one I already knew wheni read it..
