Summary Of The Book Sandra "Sandy" Bowman's 16 year old body was discovered by her husband, Tom Bowman on December 17, 1968 on the bed laying in a pool of her own blood, wrists bound (deep grooves indicating it was tied tightly), and her clothing almost entirely ripped off from her body--in addition, she had been sexually assaulted. Despite all the suspects that could've murdered Sandy, not one of them matched the fingerprints nor bypassed the polygraph test and so her case was on hold. Two weeks later, following her death was the mysterious disappearance of Mary Annabelle Bjornson, 21 years, and three weeks after that, Lynne Tuski, 20 years. The suspect was a man named John Canaday who had been caught with the release of the captive, Connie Stanton. His methods were strangulation, stabbing, and rape. He revealed the location and how Mary Annabelle and Lynne Tuski had been murdered and a total of 36 years past before DNA testing allowed Sandy's murderer to be found: John Canaday.

1969 Timeline Leading To Resolve Of Sandy Bowman Case Opinion The author's message was very clear and the seriousness of the case got me engaged quickly. The only fact that had gotten me confused would be the sentencing for John Canaday because the book followed the United States laws and not the Canadian law.
I love this book because, although the laws featured in the book was not Canadian law, the other cases are equally as interesting
This is the type of book that I would recommend to others because even if it's not the genre that they would regularly read, the intensity will enslave you into continuing. Thank you for viewing
