Release Date September 3 2013 Genre True CrimeI have read many of this authors true crime books in the past and enjoyed most of them However this one was uite bad Had the author written the story in about 300 pages it would have worked better This is for a few reasons First it was HIGHLY repetitive Phelps could have easily iven us the details in way less than 500 pages had he not constantly repeated what happened I am so serious It was every single chapter The same stuff over and over again Whoever edited the book should have noticed this because it was unnecessary and uite frankly took away from everything It sort of felt like Phelps was trying to convince US about the First Steps to Wealth guilt or innocence of these twoirls and that is NOT how a true crime book works All the author should be doing is Adventures in Fetishland giving us the details in a neutral way Secondly Phelps was NOT neutral in this book It was pretty clear from early on and even mentions so in the forward that he doesn t believe that Bobbi Joe wasuilty at all However the jury CONVICTED her These are people who are also neutral those who were iven details of the case in order to make their determination So I didn t like this that much either Finally many of Phelps previous book ive background information on the victims and perpetrators so we can sort of Rko get to know them Much of this was conveniently left out e Eh Definitely not one of this author s better ones Thought it would never end I was tempted to rate this as the worst book I have EVER read Phelps redeems himself in Murder in the Heartland but Bad Girls is loaded with atrocious slang Phelps can barelyo a page without a sentence emulating Texan drawl We seen em come in the front but they done went out the back And worse Murder is substituted with whacked and offensive street talk of that ilkThe protagonist Bobbi Jo who Phelps believes is wrongfully accused and convicted of murder is not a very sympathetic character One can easily walk away from the book not remotely caring that an innocent lesbian nymphomaniac drug user is languishing away falsely accused of murder by her former irlf.

For as many times as the author chose to repeat petty details he never did answer major uestions Something as simple as printing the statute that Bobbi Jo was convicted under might have Edwin (The Northumbrian Thrones gone a long way to proving her claims of innocence As it stands right now I believe she did not pull the trigger but she wasuilty of being an accessory after the fact and at least in my state you are judged just as severely for that as you are pulling the trigger Other ways to improve this story would have been to reprint the news interview that Jennifer The Phoenix Project gave that was referenced over and over and over and over again so that the reader could see for themselves how far fetched it was not just have to take the author s opinion An open letter from Bobbi Jo to the reader would also haveone a long way towards proving her innocence and making the book entertaining As it stands right now I feel like the author felt very strongly that Bobbi Jo had been railroaded and just wasn t able to explain his reasoning well and sort of just resorted to a well it just is attitude with the book This is a book that makes you think Bobbie Jo Smith is no angel but does that make her uilty of murder Phelps is not known for championing the side of the convicted It is because he usually oes after those convicted armed with facts and evidence that makes him one of my favorite true crime authors I can t think of another example of his work where he advocates for the innocence of the convicted individual He really doesn t think Bobbie Jo Smith was Finding a Dream (Conquest, guilty in the murder of Dow He makes a compelling argument I only read up through page 200 I have read several other books by Phelps and have always enjoyed them but I couldn t bring myself to finish this one The writing was horrible and convoluted He keeps jumping from Bobbi s story to Jen s version to Kathy s version It would have been better if he told the whole story from one point of view then from the nest point of view then from the third He repeatedly talks about the drugs and the sex Weet it already These people live for drugs and sex Very disappointed in this book.

Riend Unless the reason Bobbi Jo was put away was because she was targeted as lesbian which Phelps seems to believe there are far sympathetic innocent people than Bobbi Jo wasting away in prison Not one of his bestIve read most of Phelps books and usually appreciate his command of the English language and his ability to create a clear well connected narrative This book does neither I finished the book because I wanted to ive the author a chance to redeem himself but that never happened It s almost as if he wrote this book in two or three days without bothering to read through it himself If I hadn t read Phelps before this I would be highly skeptical about the author s ability to deliver a well rounded study of a situation This book is an anomaly for this author Pretty rough I had to buckle down just to finish this one This book was 500 pages and should have been 200 or less I can see why the author thought he had a winner here as not only was he able to et one of the the murderers directly corresponding with him along with her family the case itself had murder sex and depravity and a Thelma Louise style cross country escape However the story was highly repetitive hideously drawn out and the nuts and bolts of the story held no I have enjoyed a number of Phelps TC books but this one didn t do it for me I just couldn t care about the 2 womenor anyone else for that matter This book was bad like really really boring and bad which is hard to justify when it s allegedly a true crime novel which I can always usually find interesting I have read many other reviews on that say that the author changed up his style of writing for this book and maybe that s what the problem is First of all the book is just too long it s repetitive and about half way through I started to feel like the author must be Porterhouse Blue (Porterhouse Blue, getting paid by the word because he kept saying the same thing over and over again especially pointless details like the fact Bobbi Jo had a chain wallet It doesn t offer anything to the story the details of the crime nor does it prove her innocence so why the heck was it mentioned repeatedly.
