Type: Non-Fiction, True Crime ~ My eBook
Rating: Really liked it ♥♡
Let’s be honest, I am a sucker for authors who become my friend on Facebook. It helps when the author is highly recommended by people whose opinions I value.
Although I really like a long book chock full of all the gory details, sometimes I just want to breeze through a book, when that happens a collection of short stories will do. These are all true accounts and in my cheeky Goodreads review all I said was this book was first rate. Most of the accounts of the shootings / murders are, just the facts ma’am, the most detail comes from the surviving victims stories.
Every chapter gives the survivors name and the name of the shooting, the focus is on the victims, I like this, so often the killers get all the press. Some of these events were familiar to me, some I had never heard about. Like the book before this, this book has added more books to my, I want to read this pile.
Some shootings: (listing the ones I already knew about) The McDonald’s Massacre in San Ysidro, California; The Luby’s Massacre in Killeen Texas; Tim Ursin and the Howard Johnson Sniper (I think I read this on Ron’s Facebook Page), New Orleans, Louisiana; the University of Texas Clock Tower shooter, Austin, Texas.
I definitely recommend this book.
