Item description for Shots in the Dark: The Sniper, the Suburbs, and the Things We Value Most by Mark Ward, Sr....

In the early weeks of October, 2002, the Washington, DC area was terrorized by a sniper who took the lives of eleven civilians. What made the shootings most frightening was the indiscriminate targeting of the victims; no one felt safe from the threat. It seemed as though the sniper was targeting victims at places representative of valued American ideals--convenience, mobility, autonomy, leisure, abundance, and the opportunity of choice. Through this book, we have the opportunity to examine our lives and re-examine what we value. We should pause and consider what God's Word says about our priorities.

Publishers Description
A new kind of domestic terrorism compels us to ask how could it happen? Mark Ward, a native Washingtonian who has deep personal connections to most of the shooting sites, ask What does it all mean? and gives a searching examination of our suburban values.

Reviews - What do customers think about Shots in the Dark?

okay  Oct 3, 2003
This is the most unsual of the DC Sniper books. It's not a defense like Chief Moose's book, nor is it sensational like the two other books by reporters. In Mr. Ward's book he tells the story of each shooting, and because he is a native of the area he describes as only a native can what the scene of each crime looks like today and how it looked when he was a boy. Ward also explains why these killings so horrified 4 million people who lived in the sniper's range. Each killing took place while the victims were doing normal, everyday suburban things. The killers attacked the old, the young, white, black and latino.
When Ward is discussing the crimes his book is quite good but when he gets to the heart of the book--the religious discussion he's not as good. He doesn't take any really strong stands. His comments are mild enough to offend no-one but they won't inspire anyone either. I found that a bit frustrating.
