Well, first of all, this man is not a writer so don't expect a well organized or properly laid-out book. It's from his own words and nothing has been edited. Therefore it's all over the place, yet still quite interesting. It really made me feel for James to know his background and to learn about the seriousness of the mind control experiments being inhumanely performed on inmates. If this information is true, and I suspect much of it probably is, then something needs to be done. I don't understand how people take this information so lightly. Most of this book is decently well-written and raw considering the source! Sure it's unorganized and veers away from the book's title. For example, when watching the Investigation Discovery "Wicked Attraction" series (episode "the Folsom Wolf")they talk about how James had sex with his own mother when he was an adolescent (she seduced him and shot him up with drugs). I don't remember James even touching on this subject, almost like it never happened, even though the book cover mentions sexual abuse. I also wish he would've delved deeper into the psychological reasons he teamed up with his co-killer Cynthia Coffman, instead of just superficially describing the situation and referring to her as "the most horrible person he ever met in his life." To me, it does seem that he puts the blame on Cynthia for the deaths of the two young women. He repeatedly says he's sorry to the victim's families, but mostly maintains his innocence. But who knows, he could be telling the truth. When he said he purposely disposed of the victim's and his/Cynthia's identification to where it would be found and get them caught, this could be true. Either that, or he made a serious mistake when throwing out this evidence near a dumpster (this is what the I.D. series indicates). I suspect, however, that the truth lies somewhere in between, and we'll never get the full story out of him, or know how much involvement he truly had in the murders. I have a weird feeling that there might be more women that James and Cynthia killed. According to the series mentioned above, Cynthia was caught with a single earring that she kept as a trophy from one of the victims. But police found three mismatched earrings in her purse, which looks to me like for all we know, those other two earrings belonged to victims we may never know about. Even though he is a killer, my heart still goes out to him and I wish this man the best. If God can forgive even the most abominable man, so can we, right? Or we can at least try to. He life has sounded literally like hell on earth.
