The Demon In Disguise

The Demon in Disguise: Murder, Kidnapping, and the Banty Rooster by [Ashley Elliott]

The Demon In Disguise, by Ashley Elliot, is the captivating true story of Ashley’s lengthy journey to obtain justice for the murder of her father. On May 18th, 2002, Carter Elliot and Timmy Wayne were the first double-homicide in the history of Conway, Arkansas. With no evidence, DNA, witnesses, or fingerprints this case goes on for years. Not only is Ashley fighting for justice for her father during this time, she’s then dealt another blow when her mother is kidnapped.

Author Ashley Elliott does an excellent job recounting her turbulent journey. Detailed and cerebral, the author’s way of writing makes the reader feel like they are living the story with her. By being written in first person, we feel the emotions Ashley feels throughout this book. The manner in which it is written is clear and direct which helps make the chapters containing legal matters and criminal investigation easier for the average person to understand, and more engaging because we can connect on a human level rather than being taken through dry legal procedures.

This is an eye-opening murder mystery that is heart wrenching at times and intriguing when you’re able to overcome the emotional obstacles inherent in this harrowing story. While I was reading, I felt angry, mainly by how her family treated her, and the reality of how criminal law works.

The Demon In Disguise is a riveting true crime story that is emotionally turbulent and persistently intriguing. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy emotional and gripping crime stories. The insight into criminal law alone is enough of a reason to read this book. The Demon In Disguise was such a mysterious case and the story does a great job of slowly unraveling that mystery to readers. This is a crime thriller that I got lost in and had to keep reminding myself that the narrator really had this happen to them; so chilling.
