"A gripping story of greed, violence, theft and public relations . . . a must for true-crime enthusiasts." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Revealing in what it shows about the criminal mind . . . [Huddy has] the perfect blend of skills and experience to tell the story of Vigoa."--Seattle Times

"A total page-turner . . . riveting from beginning to end." --Laura Ingraham, The O'Reilly Factor

"A thought-provoking, demented Horatio Alger story."--Entertainment Weekly
