Goodreads Review:  
A PLAYHOUSE OF TWISTED THRILLS AND TORTURE...
In the fall of 1999, a twenty-two-year-old-woman was discovered naked and bleeding on the streets of a small New Mexico town south of Albuquerque.  She was chained to a padlocked metal collar.  The tale she told authorities - of being beaten, raped, and tortured with electric shock - was unthinkable.  Until she led them to 59-year-old David Ray Parker, his 39-year-old fiancee Cindy Hendy and the lakeside trailer they called their 'toy box'.  What the FBI uncovered was unprecedented in the annals of serial crime: restraining devices, elaborate implements of torture, books on anatomy, medical equipment, scalpels, and a gynecologist's examination table.  But these horrors were only part of the shocking story that would unfold in a stunning trial...

My Review:
Without giving it all away, there is no way for me to truly write about this book.  All I can say is, obviously I've been living under a rock, because never in a million years would I think someone this sick and twisted actually existed. While reading this book, there were a few times I had to stop and close my eyes, to escape the creepy, crazy mess that was this book.  Honestly, if you want the pants scared off of you -- take a peek at this book...otherwise...keep to the cutesy, romantic tales...

Recommendation:  I guess the only people that I could recommend this to would be people like me -- interested in true crime, psychology lovers, and maybe just a handful of wacko's...

3 stars -- because it was creepy, and because it kinda dragged on forever and ever...

Happy Reading!
