"Journalists Pulitzer and Thompson zero in on Joran van der Sloot, a wealthy young man suspected of killing two young women within five years to the day of each other... This true-crime account delivers excellent and gripping reporting of the crimes and the manhunt."--"Booklist"

"A thorough, journalistic recounting of two crimes, five years apart, linked by the same alleged perpetrator...A worthwhile read for true-crime fans and followers of the case.""--Kirkus Reviews"
