Cries in the Desert book. This poorly written true crime book concerning suspected serial killer David Parker Ray isn't scary because of his crimes. Yes, those crimes are horrific. I have no words for how horrific, but Glatt tries his best (insert sarcasm) to give you every, single, horrifying detail. Ray was eventually, at age 63 in 2001, convicted of the rape, kidnapping, and torture of 2 women who lived.

In the fall of 1999, a twenty-two-year-old woman was discovered naked and bleeding on the streets of a small New Mexico town south of Albuquerque. She was chained to a padlocked metal collar. The tale she told authorties--of being beaten, raped, and tortured with electric shock--was unthinkable. Until she led them to 59-year-old David Ray Parker, his 39-year-old financee Cindy Hendy--and the lakeside trailer they called their "toy box". What the FBI uncovered was unprecedented in the annals of serial crime: restraining devices, elaborate implements of torture, books on human anatomy, medical equipment, scalpels, and a gynecologist's examination table. But these horrors were only part of the shocking story that would unfold in a stunning trial...

This author introduces FAR too many characters per page and then not once does he attempt to reorient his readers later in the book. By that I mean he never again reminds you who the multitudes of people he's introduced are, leaving you to thumb back through the book constantly to try to remember where that person fits into the story. It's a huge glaring deficiency in his story telling and a good author would make more of an attempt. I'm actually surprised by the quality of proof reading because this is such a rookie mistake on their part as well. This should have been pointed out in the rough draft.

He also skips around in time a LOT and again NEVER reoriented the reader leaving you to try to figure out what year he is talking about. Ugh bro tedious!!!

To introduce sometimes five characters in two pages then do so with another five several pages later and never remind the reader who each person is throughout the book makes the reading quite tedious. It feels like a text book for which you have to take notes as you go along rather than a well told captivating story. It's hard to read and follow the story line. Especially when he introduces three people then immediately uses "he" to refer to someone leaving the reader to wonder WHICH He is being spoken about.

I finished it out of obligation but won't be reading this author ever again. It's a waste of time and money especially with so many great authors.

This author seems to be rushing to pump out stories but he's just not a good story teller.

Sorry but I won't recommend this to anyone and am sorry I paid money for it.

The story is gruesome and strangely riveting, but the author puts no personal touch on the story. I could have just googled this murderer and read all this stuff online. The author must be churning these books out once a week, because he doesn't seem too invested in this story and it reads a little more like a newspaper. When the author does add a bit of his own spin, it's a little judgmental and homophobic. I've moved on.

I'm a New Mexico native and this story was obviously huge news here. The trial was moved to Torrance County and held in the courtroom in Estancia where a friend of mine sat on the jury. Many of the more gruesome details of the sexual assaults were left out of the book, perhaps for the better, but it accurately portrayed this evil man's sociopathology. Unfortunately he died of heart trouble before he spent much time in prison, I would have liked for him to suffer longer.

Reading about David Ray and his obsession for torturing, I wanted to read about if his victims recovered. This book told us all about Ray's life of abduction, rape, torture. Also included were accounts of all the police officers on the case, FBI, the trial, and sentencing. Not an enjoyable read like a novel, but an informative read.

What a sad yet very interesting book to read. The author not only gave a lot of thorough information regarding the characters but he also provided history of the locations, etc. that allowed you to picture in your head what and where things were going on. He kept things engaging throughout the entire book. Great book for sure.

This is a dull, weirdly written book. It reads like a third grade story, except of course for the content. There's no style at all, so you may as well go back and read articles about the crimes. Many of them are written more skilfully anyway.

If you want sensational true crime, here it is. A competently written book, made riveting by the real life events therein. I thought the organization of the story was a little strange, but what is related was hair raising enough to distract from that and the book is quite readable.
I read a lot of these books and this one is very average. Bought based on the reviews and subject matter. This book could have been great the story has everything from sex, murder and mystery to family involvement (very creepy). That said the book is boring and has very little detail or info you can not get from the web. Ok but very sub-par if you ask me.
