The Good Die Young

I'm not much of a true-crime reader these days but this book, like other TC books, brings real people into horrible and surreal settings, circumstances and actions. This is a sad story.Hermosa Beach, with it's small-townish feel: although in sprawling and over-developed Southern California, HB is cuddled along the South Bay. A small, innocuous community of people who knew each other. A laid-back slow pace with clean air, beaches, volleyball and good-looks. Linda Sobek was a person who worked hard at her job, modeling. She took assignments carefully. Getting good work before and after being a "Raidereutte." She went to the dried lake-bed desert area of El Mirage to do a Lexus shoot with a locally renown and eccentric photographer who had a frightening but well-concealed past. An eye for an eye is what he deserves. Read to find out the rest. A good true crime book about a sad story.

Good basic account

I've always been fascinated by the Linda Sobek story. This book gives a good basic account of what happened.All in all, its a good book.

Not a bad book......

I read alot of true crime and while this wasn't one of the best I've ever read, it was pretty good none the less.Linda Sobek was a pretty, hardworking model determined to make her name in the modeling industry. Charles Rathburn was a seedy photographer deteremined to take what he wants. Under the pretense of a photo shoot Charles asks Linda to take a ride with him. Unfortunately, Linda Sobek agrees to it. The fact that someone like Charles Rathburn has the privelege of waking up each day is sickening.

Nerad has written a wonderful book- about a very sad story.

After reading "Fatal Photographs", I felt personally involved with the principals; as though they were old acquaintances. Nerad introduced me to, and allowed me to get to know both the victim, and the man who committed this terrible crime. It was a very good read, about a very sad story.
