Category:  Nonfiction: True Crime

Details what happened when family man Danny Starrett was arrested for kidnapping and rape. Explains why his parents were shocked in spite of his odd behavior, and provides entries from Starrett's journal that show how he hid the mental illness that had plagued him since childhood.

This was an interesting and well documented case, satisfactorily described by Naifeh and Smith. Some of the journal entries got a little tedious, but overall, there was adequate detail. Unfortunately, we never learned what really happened in the bathroom.
