Publisher's Summary

Cherry Walker was a devoted, trusting, uncommonly innocent young woman who loved caring for a neighbor's little boy. But when she was asked to testify in court against his abusive mother, Cherry never got the chance. She couldn't lie if her life depended on it - and it did. Cherry's body was found on the side of a Texas road, after being doused with lighter fluid and set aflame.

Attractive, manipulative, and violent, mother of four Kim Cargill had a wealth of dirty secrets she'd do anything to keep hidden. This in-depth account by best-selling investigative journalist M. William Phelps takes you inside Cargill's shocking trial and into the mind of one of the most conniving female psychopaths in recent history.

    "Some narration issues"

    Overall, the book was okay. More drawn out and repetitive than neccesary to tell the story. The narrator has an annoying technique for letting the listener know it's quoted material; he makes his voice go higher, It works to alert the listener to the fact that it's a quote, but it became so annoying to me, I was cringing,dreading the next quote. Beyond that -- and maybe this was just annoying to me, personally -- he is a good narrator. Book was okay.

    "Wanted to finish. did Not like narrator"

    did not finish. did Not like the narrator. Might have been able to finish if narrated by better narrator, that makes all the difference in the world how the book is portrayed. 😕

    "Return to Classic Phelp's Style"
    What made the experience of listening to Don't Tell a Soul the most enjoyable?

    I was getting to where I was ready to stop reading Phelps. Most of what he's put out in the past few years did not live up to his earlier writings, but this one? This one is amazing!

    I love that Phelps does extensive research, he interviews as many people as he can. Phelps reports on the history of both the victim and the perpetrator. He does an full coverage of the trial, and the aftermath. He talks to family and friends of both women. This was a most satisfying read!!! Thank you Mr. Phelps for returning to your earlier style. I hung on every word so to speak.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who looks for case studies on women killers, or psychopathy in women.

    "Phelps takes another Gold medal!"

    I just love M. William Phelps. he's a great TV personality and even more so a great author. the subject perpetrator of this book is absolutely despicable and I was left hating her and cheering the DA on!
    Do yourself a favor and get this book. if you like a great true crime then this is your story!

    "Don't Tell a Soul"

    Love a good mystery but don't enjoy stories of child abuse. Didn't bother to finish and consider it a waste of a credit.

    "Good but..."

    The narration is awful. I would recommend that you buy the hard copy instead. It's painful to listen to, and read very slowly.

    "satisfying ending for sure"

    Tough to hear this story kit the ending made it OK. Rarely have I been so eager to see justice served with a criminal. Unbelievable evil.

    "Unmitigated Evil"

    This, as most true crime stories, was hard to take. The author did a fantastic job of portraying the two main characters as liar opposites of each other. I do not believe in the death penalty so I cannot agree with the jury's sentence but to be sure this woman should never see the light of freedom again. I feel so very sorry for Cherry and her family. EXCELLENT BOOK!
