Attn: fans of local true crime. What drove Amanda Stott-Smith to throw her two children into the Willamette River almost a decade ago? Nancy Rommelmann combs through stacks of public records and conducts hours of interviews to get to the bottom of this unimaginable story of infanticide that ultimately led to the death of one child and 35 years in prison for the mother. Nick Flynn, author of Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, called the book a "tour-de-force of both journalism and compassion, in the lineage of such masterpieces as In Cold Blood and The Executioner's Song." That's high praise from another of the master of the genre.
