A true crime read...It's been a long time

Pretty Little Killers: The Truth Behind the Savage Murder of Skyler Neese

By: Daleen Berry

Genre:  Nonfiction/ True Crime

Pages: 352

Published: 2014

Read: September

3 out of 5

It’s hard to rate a nonfiction crime novel. The authors use a completely different writing style and format. This story is so horrific, it’s hard not to get engrossed; however it is very factual and often repeats these facts as more circumstantial evidence is discovered. I read this book after seeing a 20/20 special on the murder. Even though the summary and cover promise you more information on the case, there is very little that wasn’t covered in the special. The most disappointing part of the story, if you can call it that, is that the true reason of the murder is never revealed as promised. It’s still all speculation since the murderers won’t talk. My conclusion after reading the book is that the Star City Police Department did a poor job; it took them way too long to identify the silver car in the surveillance videos. I don’t understand why they didn’t at least look at Shelia’s silver car.
