"Reads like a first-rate novel, but enlightens like a detective's
handbook."--Jack Levin, author of Serial Killers and Sadistic
Murderers: Up Close and Personal
Boyle has crafted a superb narrative that is going to memorialize the tenacity of investigators; the pain and suffering of the victims' families; as well as clear up many misconceptions about the victims.--Curt Brown "Standard-Times"
"In Shallow Graves [Boyle] boils down a complicated case, with more than a dozen storylines, into one grippingly cinematic tale. With many characters and storylines at play here, Boyle's masterful weaving of narrative culminates in a full tapestry of the true crime tale that's unputdownable."--Lauren Daley "Standard Times"
"Will keep you turning pages until the end."--Lauren Daley "Bourne Enterprise"
