    35 starsThe author does a good job of raising uestions in the readers' minds On the surface this seems like a simple albeit horrific crime a family of five is suffocated and burned to death by their own son and brother One should feel nothing but sorrow and pity for the victims particularly Otis and Mary Coulson who adopted the killer and did everything they could to make him feel lovedOr did they? As the story goes on and holes are poked in the myth of the loving adoptive parents While not stereotypically abusive the Coulsons repeatedly rejected their adopted son to the point he wasn't allowed to drop by for visits without calling first and asking permission And why? Because he was a difficult teenager or he argued with his sister as a twenty something? The book isn't clear about why Mary disliked her son so much but the Coulsons avid church goers had a strict set of standards for their adopted children that none could live up to Either their marks weren't good enough or the girls got pregnant or they fell in love with the wrong men Their son was injured and received disability payments but the author makes it seem his parents believed he was faking his injuries So it became hard to blame Bob Coulson if he was a tad resentful and angry though of course nothing excuses his actionsOne of the most troubling mysteries is presented by the back cover copy But his actual motives were deeper and darker than anyone imagined Really? What were they? These mysterious motives were never presentedAn interesting uick read Even the trial component which I usually skip was kept brief and to the point and didn't drag

    This is a true crime book that is set somewhat close to where I live and the DA is well known so I felt like i knew some of the characters The book was good and suspenful I finishes it in a day and a half The thing is after I read it I looked the man up to see what had happened and was shocked by what I found It made me uestion if he was really guilty or not

  3. Sandy Sandy says:

    Mary Otis Coulson adopted 3 children Two Bobby Robbin were bio sister and brother Sarah was the youngest On Nov 13 1992 Bobby murdered the whole family which included his 6 mo pregnant sister Robin and her husband Rick Bobby did it for the money in their estate But lost that along with his life by lethal injection

  4. Trish Mann Trish Mann says:

    Terribly written Lacked the promise the blurbe suggested Full of assumptions and left the reader with so much unanswered uestions

  5. Don Jose Don Jose says:

    This was a good true crime story and is highly readable It had added significance for me as I knew Robert Coulson from playing youth sports together growing up As an adult he was what I saw as a kid a volatile angry and potentially violent person The book provides a lot of answers to uestions I had about Coulson mostly the “why” uestions but also many details about him his family and his actions that didn’t make it into evidence at trial all of which make absolutely clear he was guilty A uick and easy read about a disturbing and horrific crime

  6. Katrin Katrin says:

    Good book talked about a man that was narcissistic and was a sociopath Felt like he deserved the money and made sure he didn't have to share it with anyone in his family I didn't care for the trial part and they could have left the fbombs out of the book

  7. Samantha Osborne Samantha Osborne says:

    really very good book i think he did do it the way he was acting if he didn't he was evolved with what happened

  8. Suzanne Flohr Suzanne Flohr says:

    Very well written Easy to follow loved it made it very personable
