I just finished reading this book and found it very eye opening. You see I am Mike's oldest sister and I saw first hand what kind of snakes the justice system creates. Not only is my brother totally innocent the justice system failed him,my sister in law, and my niece. I cried my eyes out through out most of this book because it opened that wound that I have tried so hard to let heal. It has been very hard on my family and I to see what kind of awfull heart less people there is out there mainly Carl and Cindy Manning and DA Mike Bitney. I mean how could you do that to your own flesh and blood for one thing. I just hope that when it is there time to tell God why they did this to their daughter and grandaughter they have a really good explination. I come from a family that has values and stand behind you no matter what obviously Carl and Cindy don't know what that means. Congratulations Crystal for getting your story out there and making people really see what kind of goverment we have.

This was an absolutely amazing read. It broke my heart all over again. I followed this story from a distance as I no longer live in the Spooner area and I was appalled by the things I was reading in the media. Great job on putting this together guys!

I came across this book by an "author" that lives close to Spooner. Interesting reading but this Mike guy, in this "true" story is definitely a loser!. It is so sad how the little girl , the main person in this book, has been treated! I pray for this family, Especially for little Emma and the grandparents! I also feel sad for Emma's mom that maybe someday she can take her blinders off so she could see though all of this.

A compelling story of hope and tragedy. The need to protect the vulnerable confronts a justice system where convictions are ribbons won... more than truths found. An interesting read ending with the realization we are all at risk when politics and "good" intentions direct the outcome.
