The Delphi Murders. The shocking murders of best friends, Ashley Williams and Libby German, by an unknown assailant not far from home. Thanks to Libby's intuition, the police had video proof of the assailant as well as a snippet of his voice. The police would release these items to the public in hopes that they would recognize the man's walk, talk, or demeanor. This book tells us not only about the crime but also about the girls, their families, and how police finally arrested their alleged killer.

The Delphi murders broke everyone's heart when they heard about it. What monster would take the lives of two innocent young girls? This story allows us access to the girls' lives and what they were like. We also learn about the families search for the missing girls and the moment they knew that they'd never come home. The police investigation is well-explained and the emotion that the police felt while looking for the girl's killer was palpable. There are also chapters where Hendricks talks to leading specialists in the world of true crime to answer pressing questions regarding the arrest and what could happen at trial. This book answers a lot of questions that people were wondering about. Hopefully, there will be an updated edition at the end of the trial.
