Publishers Weekly has reviewed this book, saying that Mara Leveritt,
"... who makes a strong argument that the convictions were a miscarriage of
justice, also suggests an alternative suspect: one victim's stepfather, who
had a history of domestic violence, yet was seemingly shielded by
authorities because he was a drug informant for local investigators. Sure to
be locally controversial, Leveritt's carefully researched book offers a
riveting portrait of a down-at-the-heels, socially conservative rural town
with more than its share of corruption and violence."
This book takes a position opposite to that of the documentary videos and other books. It attempts to prove that the WM3 were guilty.
"A startling insight into one of the most talked about murder cases in American history, Abomination: Devil Worship and Deception in the West Memphis Three Murders reveals the truth about the murders of three children in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993. By analyzing original police transcripts and court documents, William Ramsey effectively proves that witchcraft and devil worship were involved in the heinous murders, and that a continuing wall of deception has prevented the public from realizing the awful truth about the West Memphis Three child killings."
"Voracious reader," reviewed the book on the Amazon web site and wrote:
"An excellent book. I'm very familiar with this case and the controversy surrounding the outcome of the case. After having been bombarded with the fairytale opinions of vocal and famous supporters (some who call themselves journalists), I found it refreshing that Mr. Ramsey did his research and presented the TRUTH of this horrific crime. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know why three teenagers were rightfully convicted of murder. As we approach the 20-year anniversary of the deaths of Chris, Mike and Stevie, it's still important to honor their young lives with an honest and fact-based account of how those young lives ended."
This is another book that promotes the guilt of the WM3.
Amazon customer Zack Fish reviewed the book, gave it 2 stars out of 5, and wrote:
"... another book. "Devil's Knot" is a superior account in almost every way. However, all of this is not to say that "The Blood of Innocents" is not worth reading at all. It can be seen as a supplement to the other book; it does contain some useful background and interesting descriptions of the towns involved, and it describes early leads and police interrogations of other initial suspects that went nowhere. But for a detailed, accurate, insightful account of how this case unfolded, you have to look elsewhere."
An Amazon.com reviewer described the Last Pentacle as:
"...a compelling mix
of fiction and non-fiction, with all money going to the West Memphis Three
Defense Fund." Another reviewer wrote: "Given the theme and tone of most
of The Last Pentacle of the Sun, it's surprising that it is not simply a dark
and depressing read with no positive qualities to recommend it. There is,
instead, sense of hope throughout that the tables will eventually turn and the
Three will be vindicated. Still, this is not a book that should be devoured in
one sitting. I would recommend, instead, grazing a few pieces at a time. This
will give the reader a chance to savor each piece on its own merits, and will
help to avoid injustice overload."
