  • It was clear from the beginning that the author cared about the victims He knew them from childhood, especially George Ann and did not want them to be forgotten If there was a separate rating for this I would give this book 5 stars Why I decided on 3 stars was the way the information was presented At times there seemed to be too much detail that had no bearing on the story I grew up around the same time and knew the references he made The first few were fun but after that it felt like filler th [...]


  • The Devil started out as an interesting look at one of the first well publicized random killings of the 1960s and the differences between now and then, both in society and law enforcement But it becomes bogged down in tedium interview after interview is recorded, but no real attempt is made to tie them together In many cases, the author s thoughts are impossible to differentiate from logical conclusions A map would also have been helpful It s difficult to call a true crime novel boring, but Bens [...]


  • Riveting account of the 1966 double murder of two teenage girls outside Rochester, NY I read the book twice in a row to see if I could figure out whodunit sad to know the crime was never solved Nice photo insert but I wish a map of the neighborhood had been enclosed so much was described and important to the story but it was hard to keep straight I would definitely read by this author


  • Benson has talents for making a tragic murder about himself, and not much else Benson did a good job of pulling together a lot of information about the murders, though most of it was via interviews There was too much information at times, focusing on unrelated murders and local criminals for seemingly no reason There are certainly too many interviews, with a diminishing return of information across the whole book This wouldn t be so bad if the author tried whatsoever to draw any meaning from the [...]


  • A fascinating read with myriad local Rochester references about an unsolved double murder of two teenage girls in Chili s Ballantyne neighborhood in 1966 that I had never heard about before this book Although it can be difficult at times to keep track of all the creepy personalities in this story, Michael Benson who grew up in Ballantyne pieces together a compelling account of this incident and its context in an attempt to find answers and closure If you came of age in the Rochester area in the [...]


  • A true crime book that reads like a memoir The author, Benson, sets out to find out who killed two young girls in his small town outside Rochester NY back in the early 1960 s One of the girls mother has wanted to know facts about the case for years but no one would tell her, trying to protect her from the gruesome aspects of the murder I find that so demeaning to this woman That men thought women couldn t handle the factsess it s better to imagine the worse for 40 years I have to say not one st [...]


  • Good foundation for a story dealing with the 1966 murders of two teenage girls in Chili, NY, just outside of Rochester, unfortunately it loses its whodunnit momentum by getting bogged down in details of the investigation There was the initial investigation by different law enforcement agencies and a good description of the setting and solid biographical backgrounds, then the author revisits the crime forty years later It is the second part where it becomes a bewildering labyrinth of speculation, [...]


  • As a lifelong Rochester resident, wanted to learn about this crime, which I did not recollect I m familiar with Michael benson due to his appearances on ID I found the material interesting but was ultimately disappointed to complete the book with so many unanswered questions Not even sure Benson really made any conclusions.


  • What made this book interesting was the fact it happened in an area with which I am familiar I also found it interesting that so any crazy people lived in this small rural area It was obvious the author did his research thoroughly I suppose I am not a murder mystery fan.



  • Excellent account of a double murder in my hometown in 1966 I couldn t stop reading it I knew both of the victims and many of the people cited in the book.



  • Never in my life have I read about so many weirdos all in one place Yikes, remind me not to go to that town in New York
