Against Her Will: Pinnacle True Crime | [Ronald J. Watkins]

Against Her Will: Pinnacle True Crime

Richard and Victoria Tinyes feared the worst when their thirteen year old daughter Kelly Ann vanished from their quiet suburban community of Valley Stream, New York, on March 3, 1999. But the nightmare to come was worse than they could ever imagine. Only five doors away, in the home of John and Elizabeth Golub, police found Kelly Ann's body stuffed in a plastic garbage bag. She'd been brutally beaten, stabbed, strangled, and mutilated. After weeks of intense investigation, police arrested the Golubs twenty-one-year-old son, Robert - a reclusive young man obsessed with bodybuilding and given to fits of rage. The sensational trial and subsequent conviction of Robert Golub shocked the nation and tore the once peaceful community apart. Neighbors took sides. So did the media. And no one who lived on Horton Road would ever be the same. Note on audio book: Except for the beginning and end of the book, there is no longer any music.

    "Well-written true-crime book"
    Where does Against Her Will rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Against Her Will is one of the best true crime books I've purchased on Audible.com


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was actually Kelly, though we hardly hear her voice.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The naming of the suspect by the cops.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Deep sadness for a senseless act committed by a psychopath.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this book. The narrator's reading style and voice are PERFECT for this particular book. I applaud the author on his excellent choice of narrator.

    "Did he do it?"
    Would you listen to Against Her Will again? Why?

    OH yes I will, I could not get enough. I am passionate about true stores and this one ranks right up there with the best.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it did, I guess there always has to be a first victim, but why her? Why did he do what he did? Was it the steroids. I have read about steroid concerns prior.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole book was good


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    For a while I felt for the family and was extremely frustrated with how the family was treated by the neighbors. If I really think about it though, i would probably act the same way if my baby had been killed.

    "Repetitive"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. It had a habit of constantly repeating the same things over and over and over. It could have been much better written. I felt the author concentrated more on the animosity between the two families than on the crime, victim and investigation.


    What about Greg Lutz’s performance did you like?

    Well read.

    "You are there"

    A horrible true crime story, This audiobook describes in detail the events before and after the killing of Kelli Ann Tinyes. This book gathers details from the victim's family, the accused, and the friends of Kelli Ann. I would say that it is told from the police perspective. The story held my listening attention. The narrator Greg Lutz is crisp and precise.

    "LESS TRUE CRIME THAN IMMATURE PARENT BEHAVIORS"

    I've read a kazillion true crime books but this is hardly a really good one. This is less about the horrific murder of a young teen than it is an indictment of the family and friends on what is allegedly a bucolic Long Island neighborhood. The possible murderer takes a back seat to the uncivilized, animalistic actions of the victim's family in the wake of the crime and the people who lived on the street where the crime took place. As the wife of a murder victim, I can say first-hand that fighting among the families takes away from what a trial is all about: Justice For All. The adults' behavior was so outrageous that the listener completely forgot about the poor child who was murdered. Pass on this one.
