I can't wait for the sequel!
Will there be more books? This one was fantastic!
Loved this book so much because of LaDonna’s passion. Justice!!!
Great summer read. Recommend!
I've heard some negativity surrounding the book so I decided to check it out. Well-written, informative account of an unsolved murder. Ladonna's passion for this case is palpable. this book is a must read especially if you are from fort smith, arkansas like I am. this case has haunted me and so many others. I believe ladonna Humphrey will find justice for Melissa.
I like it. I love it! I want some more of it!!
Kept me wanting more!
Exciting read. LaDonna takes you on a journey to find a killer. It is one hell of a journey, too! I never know what to expect with a new author but LaDonna did not disappoint. She's an author I will be watching! She's seeking justice and I damn sure hope she gets it. JUSTICE FOR MELISSA WITT.
Incredible experience as a reader. LaDonna painted an imagery that made me feel like I was there with her hunting a killer. Must read!
Fantastic book and not just because I knew the author in college. It's well-written, passionate, and page turner. Grab a glass of wine and prepare to have your mind blown. It gave me that same feeling I get when I listen to "Run" by Snow Patrol. Seriously, I hope everyone reads this book to find out what I have always known: you are talented, wonderful and a fighter. #justiceformelissawitt
Fucking A, man. Fucking A!!
Better than gravy!!
My new favorite book! I want to meet LaDonna Humphrey!
This book covers to many angles! Story of a murdered girl. Story of LaDonna's journey to find her killer. Story of two detectives dedicated to solving this case. This book is so well done. I read it one sitting. I could not put it down. This is a must-read for anyone who loves true crime.
GD! Cliffhangers are so 1980's. I need resolution!
Is there another book coming? I hope so!
Really good book! Couldn't put it down!
Very interesting book.
Great book! Bravo!
Could not put it down! Can’t give it 5 stars because I found a typo and because LaDonna didn’t include a way to contact her. She’s going to get Justice!!
I purchased the book without high expectations but found it was hard to put down. It was a well written easy read. LaDonna Humphrey has become one of the authors that I will flag looking for her next book.
From the UK and the book gave me a fright about what the US allows with pornography laws. I hope Horrorman was found and prosecuted.
Good read. What happened with the Vermillion Strangler?
I just finished the book. Fantastic. I want to stand up and applaud LaDonna Humphrey for her writing skills, her courage, and her determination. What I need to know is when the next book comes out. I need it RIGHT NOW!
This book is fucking brilliant. It left me wanting more.
Just finished it. Well-written and intriguing!
Two words: hot damn! Is there going to be more? Please say yes!
The Girl I Never Knew: Who Killed Melissa Witt? is a work of non-fiction in the true crime and thriller subgenres by LaDonna Humphrey. As the title suggests, the work focuses on the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of Melissa Witt, and the answers to her untimely death seem to lie within the Ozark National Forest, Arkansas. Humphrey’s vested interest in unmasking Melissa’s killer is impressive for her sheer determination and attention to detail, but also remarkable considering that she never actually met the victim in person. So begins a real-life thriller of cracking the case and the strange twists in life that following Witt’s killer have given the author.
I am an avid fan of true crime and trying to unpick and understand why vicious people do vicious things, so I was sucked into the exciting premise offered by LaDonna Humphrey from the start. That is not to say this is a gory tale, because Humphrey is enormously respectful of the tragic fate that befell Melissa Witt, and the circumstances of her death are never glamourized or used to gratuitous effect. Moreover, it is the dogged tenacity and powerful sense of justice that Humphrey possesses that rockets this work of non-fiction into action and will certainly keep readers flipping pages to see what clue is uncovered next and how these experiences have shaped the author as a person. The Girl I Never Knew is a superb work of true crime narration that no fan should be without.
Well written. Hope she writes more.
Good read. I got it for Mother’s Day.
So good! It's a genre bender! The scientist in me enjoyed how thorough the author's research was into the suspects and noir topics.
I'm obsessed. The girl I never knew is the girl EVERYONE needs to know. Read this book yesterday!
This book is a page turner! So many angles to consider! As a transgendered woman, I appreciate LaDonna stepping up to advocate for someone who cannot advocate for themselves. All women deserve a fierce ally like LaDonna.
I knew the case wasn't solved when I started this book (spoiler) but that ending! My mind is blown! Tell me there is more coming because I need to know who the Vermillion Strangler is and what path that took Humphrey down. I want to know. I NEED to know. This book is spine tingling GOOD!
I’m Holly P’s partner. I agree that Humphrey is the next McNamara. I have read the book twice and I highly recommend. I’m very picky about my true crime and this definitely tickled my fancy!
The title and cover intrigued me so I purchased a copy. And holy mother of God! First, LaDonna Humphrey is brave. She really put herself out there in this book and the story is fascinating. I can’t recommend this enough. Read this book! I’m telling all of my people to order it right now. LaDonna is the best Michelle McNAmara. Wow!
I devoured this book in two days. I need more!
Wow! Just wow! Excellent book.
Couldn’t put it down!
The book was very well written. I know the author and don't particularly like her, but the book was really good. I hope she finds justice for Melissa.
Worth reading. Melissa Witt was murdered!!
This was a good book written by an obscure author in the hills of Arkansas. I can’t wait to watch her career. Go LaDonna. Get Justice!
Fantastic read. It will not give you hemorrhoids but it will give you chills. Well done and with reading.
I read this book in one day! So mysterious. I need to know more! I want this case solved! #justiceformelissawitt
The definitive book for the Missy Witt case. I couldn't put it down. Superb!
True crime at it's best.
Really great read. I want to see justice for Melissa!
This book had me from the first chapter. Absolutely gripping. Well-written. I could not put it down. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I loved this book so much! The passion! The twists and turns! And the chapter about HORRORMAN! I can't give this book enough stars. Fantastic. Well-written. Entertaining. I just know the author will crack the case!
I could not put this book down! Humphrey's resolve to solve the Witt murder captivated me. This is a MUST read!
This book is extraordinary a must read you can truly feel the amount of passion the author put into this book as if you were actually involved in the case yourself I myself definitely feel it's a 5 star book and I'm excited to read more books from this author
