Reviews - What do customers think about Faces of Evil?

Couldn't Put it down..  Jul 10, 2008
I picked up this paperback and couldn't put it down. I even had my wife read it just so she would know the slime that was out there. I'm not someone that wants to draw, I couldn't draw a matchstick person, but I read a lot of true crime and Lois put together a large amount of infomation in that area. She told it in a great manner. I highly recommend this book. Mick Addington
I couldn't read it fast enough!  Apr 23, 2008
I found "Faces of Evil" one of the best books I've ever read. I just couldn't read it fast enough. I had the honor of seeing Ms. Gibson, the Author at a conference in my city. Her story inspired me to purchase the book and I'm glad I did.
Faces of Evil  Feb 17, 2008
I know the author personally and have witnessed the astonishing things she accomplishes with an artist's touch. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys seeing evil take a back seat to the artisan who works in tandum with law enforcement to put a face on predators.
An Interesting Insight of a Forensic Portrait Artist!  Dec 30, 2007
If you ever had the talent to draw people, you could be a great portrait artist. Lois Gibson writes about her traumatic rape as a young woman in Los Angeles but also her aspirations to be an artist. She just didn't decide one day to be a forensic artist for the Houston Police Department. She had to convince them that her forensic art was necessary to track down and find horrendous criminals who were guilty of rape and murder. She opens the book about the case of LaShondra, a young girl who was badly beaten and decomposed. Ironically, she gets the case on September 11, 2001. She writes about how she uses her own experience to help the traumatized and argues that Elizabeth Smart could have been found sooner if they had used the portrait developed by her sister, Mary Catherine, months before she was actually found. Rather than going by instinct of an actual witness, the police felt it was not in their best interest to use the drawing even though it's not Lois' but another forensic artists. In cases where the fugitives are dangerous criminals to society, forensic artistry can be a necessity in order to catch him. This book is a great argument for the use of forensic artists in major police departments around the country. I encourage those with the talent of drawing people and faces offer their talents to even the smaller town and city departments. It's tough enough getting a job like that as Lois will tell you because it just didn't happen overnight. She had to fight for the reason of having a forensic artist on the Houston Police Force. But Lois writes about how witnesses provide the necessary information in order to apprehend dangerous criminals. This book is a great read for true crime buffs like me. Lois does use her personal experience to help with traumatized victims with a great touch of comfort and respect.
I just can't help wonder why she wasn't contacted for the BTK case.
