Book Review: Without Mercy by Gary Provost

This book is one that I have read a couple of times before. It always stayed with me. It is about the murders of Art Valencia and his mother Bessie. It follows Dee Casteel, a waitress at the IHOP in the Florida Redlands. She was in love with the gay manager, James Allen Bryant, who was the boyfriend of the owner, Art Valencia. Bryant wanted Valencia killed so he could be with his other boyfriend, and have Art’s money, too. He got Dee to arrange the both murders by plying her with alcohol (she was an alcoholic). This book was well-written and well researched. The author really humanizes Dee, and gives the face of a woman who made some very bad decisions, but does stand up and takes responsibility for her actions. I really enjoyed the book and will probably read it yet again!
