A Stranger in the Family: A True Story of Murder, Madness, and Unconditional Love

by ,

In the late 1980s, residents of Georgia and South Carolina were terrorized by a vicious serial rapist and murderer. Unlike most serial killers, who are usually anti-social loners, this killer turned out to be Richard Daniel Starrett, a popular and well-respected "golden boy" from a perfect Southern family. Naifeh and Smith not only give harrowing details of this serial criminal, but also offer troubling insight into the psychology of the American family. Hide synopsis

Told from a mother's point of view, Gerry Starrett

by fungirl503 on Apr 1, 2007

Told from a mother's point of view, Gerry Starrett thought she had the perfect family and the perfect son. I can't believe that a mother in this story won't open her eyes and be so blind to what her son is truely. I as a mother would probaly try to be there for my son But I would hope my eyes would be open. As for Danny I real believe he did what he did and I don't think he has a SPLIT PERSONALITY. I think he was trying to see if he said all that he wouldn't get the death penalty. This book was not the best crime book I have read so far. I think I feel this way is because I didn't like the way Danny treat every one.
