Synopses & Reviews
THE STORY OF ONE OF THE MOST BIZARRE MASS MURDERS EVER RECORDED. AND THE GIRL WHO ESCAPED WITH HER LIFE.
In the fall of 2010, in the all-American town of Apple Valley, Ohio, four people disappeared without a trace: Stephanie Sprang; her friend, Tina Maynard; and Tinaandrsquo;s two children, thirteen-year-old Sarah and eleven-year-old Kody. Investigators began scouring the area, yet despite an extensive search, no signs of the missing people were discovered.
On the fourth day of the search, evidence trickled in about neighborhood andldquo;weirdoandrdquo; Matthew Hoffman. A police SWAT team raided his home and found an extremely disturbing sight: every square inch of the place was filled with leaves and a terrified Sarah Maynard was bound up in the middle of it like some sort of perverted autumn tableau. But there was no trace of the others.
Then came Hoffmanandrsquo;s confession to an unspeakable crime that went beyond murder and defied all reason. His tale of evil would make Sarahandrsquo;s survival and rescue all the more astonishingandmdash;a compelling tribute to a young girlandrsquo;s resilience and courage and to her fierce determination to reclaim her life in the wake of unimaginable wickedness.
Tells the story of Robert Spangler who, after killing his first wife and teenage children, set the stage to frame his wife for the brutal murder, and then proceeded to murder his next two wives.
From the bestselling author of "Rope Burns" comes the twisted true story of a Colorado man who murdered his wife and children in cold blood so he could remarry--then killed his third wife to avoid a costly divorce. photos. Original.
