    1. I read this book in the 90's was an interesting read because I knew many of the people involved.So many were depicted in such a harsh manners were done during the investigation that were questionable. But, many of these men, who participated in the trial, went on to spend their lives in public service, they helped so many people over the years.This death, and the trial that follow was a very sad period for Montgomery County. It was good that it wasn't followed by another death.

    2. I started high school in Conroe weeks after the murder of Cheryl Fergeson. I'm horrified by the details in this book, especially by the names of the men in power. This is a must read for anyone who thinks racism is dead in this country.

    3. Read this some time ago knowing people that worked the case. The author had limited access to anything, and seemed to put his own spin on it, and not be ultimately truthful which is disappointing. Like a previous reviewer said, showed them in a harsh light.

    4. This happened in my school Conroe High School. If anyone wants to know Yes it is supposedly haunted. I feel so bad for Cheryl. The cops were so racist
