Default Strange Piece of Paradise

I'm not planning on reading this any time soon, but I am interested to know that it happened. Despite rather good prose in the excerpts, the subject matter I'd just as soon not think about. *gulp*

True story of a brutal attack in 1977 on two young women bike tourers camped at Cline Falls State Park near Redmond, OR, by one of the victims. While many in Redmond suspected who did it, no one was ever arrested or charged. The man was later convicted of other charges while Jentz watched from the courtroom. The author spoke eloquently with Melissa Block in an interview on NPR in 2006.
