    1. True CrimeThis is an especially good book. The author handles the controversial aspects of this case well. The criminal has either committed murder or not. He covers all the angles and then gives the deposition of the case. It is told very well .

    2. An interesting readI had trouble putting this book down. Well written. Even handed. Gave me new insights into the tea radical pro-life movement.

    3. Excellent bookAlthough this was an excellent book it was frightening to see the depth of one's beliefs and the actions those beliefs can come to.

    4. Although a very in-depth look at James Kopp and the timeline behind his crimes, I felt this book was a bit too plodding and dense to be worth the read. I finished it out of sheer stubbornness.

    5. James Kopp is a representation of everything that is wrong with the world today - regardless of whether you believe in God, Allah, the Flying Spaghetti Monster or a giant floating banana in the sky only you can see no one should force their religious views (or lack thereof) on to others whether through lobbying, legislation or violence.James Kopp took it upon himself to shoot 5 Doctors who performed abortions under the guise that this would "save" unborn children, the final shooting resulting in [...]

    6. Interesting read about a man who takes his beliefs to the highest possible level. Wells does a good job of explaining James Kopp and his possible motives with a balanced perspective so the reader can make their own decision. Excellent job on the investigative side of things as well. Overall an entertaining and informative read.

    7. Well researched and written, but I didn't care for it as much as some of his earlier ones. I'm drawn to his books because of local history, and there wasn't a whole lot of that in here.
