This book was horrifying. I can't comprehend the evil of some people. This book is truly heartbreaking. What they do to their victims is terrible. Read full review

As the Great Nephew of Claude Ballard (my G-paws little brother) I am deeply disappointed that through the whole book, he was only mentioned on one page (I believe page 117). That was pretty bad considering he was the Calaveras County Sheriff at the time! According to this book, San Francisco people "saved the day" from "small town country hicks"! I can testify to all the worry & stress (and sleepless nights) he had trying to extradite Ng from Canada! THANKS FOR NOTHING! The Chicago Tribune (half the country away) gave him more credit for his service!
