I don't even remember, where my fascination with true crime began or why, but it must have started somewhere over a decade ago. When others listen to calming music I put on tv shows like "Forensic Files" to sooth me to sleep. I have seen it all, the good but mostly the bad and the really, really ugly. True crime often is sensationalized and exploiting. More often than not there are true crime writers who act as commentators in documentaries, who seem to have forgotten, that they aren't talking about fictional crimes and characters in some novel. That's why I tried to become more careful about what/who I read or watch when it comes to true crime in the past couple of years and as Gillian Flynn wrote in her introduction to this book, it was inevitable that I would find Michelle. Her has a sensitivity and carefulness, that so many true crime writers lack. She doesn't shy away from the ugly truths, the M.O., the violence and trauma, but she never forgets the people affected by the horrendous crimes she wrote about. The first half of the book is impeccable, whereas the second half reads a bit fragmented due to the fact, that unfortunately Michelle couldn't finish this book herself. There's a shift in tone, when the editor's notes start to appear, stating that certain parts were pieced together from Michelle?s notes and drafts. I'm mentioning this as an observation rather than as a critique, because I think her lead researcher Paul Haynes and investigative journalist Billy Jensen did a fantastic job sorting out this jigsaw puzzle in her name.
