Head Shot

Head Shot By Best Selling Author Burl Barer

Paul St. Pierre was an alcoholic driven by an urge to kill all the time. He bullied his younger brother, Chris, into committing unspeakable acts. His childhood friend, Andrew Webb, took drugs, talked to skulls, and dreamed about eating human flesh. It was only a matter of time before the trio terrorized a quiet neighbourhood near Tacoma, Washington, with the brutal murders of innocent victims caught in a storm of senseless rage. Then the twisted triad turned on each other – over money. Paul shot Andrew in the stomach. Chris called the cops. But with tortured individuals like these, justice opened the doors to more surprising revelations…


I like true crime books,and I like legal thrillers. This one is both. HEAD SHOT was, for me, a book I couldn't put down. The author kept me wondering what would happen next, and the story is gripping and scary. Barer did a good job giving the background of the main characters (killers) and the commentary by one of the killer's ex-wife,and his former sister-in-law is sometimes hysterically funny and sad at the same time. The ending,bringing us up to date on what has happened to these people since the crime in the 1980's was excellent. I am certainly going to buy this authors other books now that I have read HEAD SHOT.

I actually prefer documentaries over books, but this one you cannot put down. Burl B. is an investigating journalist who doesn't just slap down information off the AP. He digs, then he digs some more. An awesome read.

I never knew how bad Tacoma used to be. This was a well written story-even though the story itself was disturbing and interesting,Mr.Barer did a wonderful job.
I will be reading more of his work soon.
