Publisher's Summary

In 1991, flight attendant Nancy Ludwig checked in to an airport hotel near Detroit. The next morning she was found gagged, raped, and tortured - her throat slit with such rage that she was nearly decapitated. Her husband Arthur never gave up hope that the future would bring enough evidence to close the case. But it was the past that held the clue.

In 1985, 55-year-old Margarette Eby, a music professor, met the same grisly death at her cottage in Flint, Michigan. The case went cold - until six years later when the victim's son Mark came upon the story of Nancy Ludwig's slaying. With nothing to go on but intuition, he called authorities, certain that the same fiend committed both crimes.

A cunning sting operation yielded irrefutable DNA evidence, and authorities were led to the home of respected navy veteran Jeffrey Gorton living quietly with his wife and two children. But his cold-blooded secrets were only beginning to come to light, leaving fears that there were more victims yet to be found in a killing spree that had finally come to an end. Blood Justice shows veteran reporter and author Tom Henderson at the top of his game.

Wow !!! Nothing left out

This is by far the most detailing crime book that I have ever read. The writer’s research and explanation of these cases is outstanding and the best I have ever read/heard. A must listen for crime lovers and an excellent presentation of a horrible case.

Not for me

Slow, boring book that just doesn't go anywhere. Jumps around too much with too much emphasis on lengthy bios.

Boring

What would have made Blood Justice better?

The writer talks to much about everyone else rather than the killer and the victims, you get lost and can't follow. jumps around to much to confusing.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

narrator was fine.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Blood Justice?

take out the long descriptions of everyone but the main characters.

nonfiction or opinion?

the author confuses genres. mixes awesome written story with unexpected, infrequent, irritating mix in of strong personal opinion. Otherwise FANTASTIC writing and storytelling.

Adequate

The storyline was interesting, especially in the first 2/3rds but it hit a wall after that with too much unnecessary details on side issues.

I didn't finish it

I found the descriptions of the violence inflicted on these poor women and the details explaining the state their bodies were left in to be far too graphic, it felt very salacious and disrespectful to them and their families...I stopped listening and returned the audiobook.

I've enjoyed other Tom Henderson true crime books, and the narrator Paul Michael Garcia was good as usual... I just found the descriptions unnecessarily graphic and very distasteful.
