This gang of serial killers did unthinkable crimes. It's hard to believe that their story is not a work of fiction. But it's not! Most serial killers work alone. Killing is usually a private crime, something that mass murderers are keen to keep hidden. But this is not always the case. During the 1990s, a small town in Australia witnessed first-hand how devastating, horrendous, and effective a gang of serial killers could be.

Kept my attention throughout the story, was easy to follow and well versed. This was a lot better then the movie and the other books I have read about this particular crime. Worth the read.

In this brave and moving memoir, Corey Feldman is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

I was so moved by this story, it was tragic, and inspirational to me. It gave me enormous insight to a life I've often coveted to be my own. Corey was honest and I believed his story and that of his best friend, Corey Haim, who met an untimely end too soon. It was sad, yet ended with hope. I loved this book, and it helped me believe that there is always hope, even in the darkest of times. A great listen, and a great story. I recommend this to everyone and anyone who has ever felt the weight of life, as it appeals to everyone, even if the story is about one man's journey through early stardom.
