On Christmas Eve in 1985, a hunter found a young boy's body along an icy corn field in Nebraska. The residents of Chester, Nebraska, buried him as Little Boy Blue, unclaimed and unidentified - until a phone call from Ohio two years later led authorities to Eli Stutzman, the boy's father.

Eli Stutzman, the son of an Amish bishop, was by all appearances a dedicated farmer and family man in the country's strictest religious sect. But behind his quiet façade was a man involved with pornography, sadomasochism, and drugs. After the suspicious death of his pregnant wife, Stutzman took his preschool-age son, Danny, and hit the road on a sexual odyssey ending with his conviction for murder.

    " Incredibly disturbing and terribly sad, but very well written. "

    " While I really enjoyed the story itself, I did not care for the writing of this book. I think it could have been cut in half if the author had stuck to the story itself and not the underlying sexual relations of Eli Stutzman. This is the second book by this author I have read and I think his style is a bit all over the place. I think it'll be the last of his I read. "

    " This was my first Gregg Olsen true crime book, and I found it fascinating to follow the crimes of a former Amishman. In fact, it would not surprise me if he committed crimes that were never proven or discovered yet. Gregg is one of the top true crime writers of his generation. "

    " Very sad read. Eli Stutzman was an incredibly sick man and poor Danny must be one of God's very special angels now! "
