“Phelps’s writing reads like a mystery novel.” —Suspense Magazine The crime stunned quiet Mineral Wells, Texas: 49-year-old Bob Dow shot execution-style in his own bed, his invalid mother locked in the next room—and a cache of homemade porn starring the town’s underage girls.

William Phelps exposes a gripping tale of sexploitation, lust, and betrayal, while questioning the court’s fateful verdict in a tantalizing forensic puzzle. Were both girls equally guilty of murder? Or was one merely a pawn in the other’s dainty, blood-stained hands?
