      I'm about 80 pages short of finishing this, but I'm going to go ahead and write my review - I'll add to it if my opinion changes by the end of the book. I must say that I haven't been able to muster even the smallest amount of sympathy for the victim, which I know sounds pretty harsh. But she knowingly put herself in harm's way by working as a call girl. Her reasons for doing so had nothing to do with any of the most common reasons that seem to draw girls into the world of prostitution - she was [...]

      SPOILER ALERT!And to think this book was on my wish list for many many years. I finally decided to buy it and now I have read itwhat a bore!First of all I also did not feel much sympathy for the victim. Not because she worked as a call girl but how she constantly wanted revenge on her boyfriend Todd, who had once cheated on her. She then decided to sleep with as many men as possible.I have never liked people who when something not so nice happens to them they have to get revenge. No matter who t [...]

      This true crime was better written than most, and the pace was great. No long, drawn-out trial sequence, probably because there wasn't a trial.But for some reason, the story didn't really move me. I'm not sure why. The writers seemed a little distant from their subject matter, is the best explanation I can come up with. Also, since they spend so much time talking about how much it hurt the victim's father when the media dragged his daughter's name through the mud, writing a book about the case a [...]

      Standard true-crime fareif it had a fault, it would be that it left the reader with more questions than answers, but sometimes that can't be helped. There was nothing shown in the victim's background that would have indicated she would be susceptible to being lured into the world of prostitutione had everything in the world going for her, a loving family, a good relationship, etc. Maybe that's why it's noteworthy's all the more tragic in that you would never see it coming with Tina Biggar. Her f [...]

      I don't read that much true crime, probably because it tends to be poorly written. Seriously, if authors don't know the difference between "compose" and "comprise", editors should. Anyway, I was interested enough to finish it, and it was easy/quick/trashy enough to read when I had a headache and couldn't process heavier stuff. A side note: even in '97 when this was published, no one used the words "coed" or "call girl" anymore, which suggests the target audience for the book was elderly. Interes [...]

      This book is not the best or worst paperback true crime novel I had ever read. The reason why I read this book was because some distant family members wanted me to be aware of the dangers of living in a big city. I was just entering high school when I was gifted this book so my mom took it away and said I could read it when I was older. We both forgot about it until another move occurred. While I didn't plan on entering the call girl life style, I did learn how easy it can be for people to get s [...]

      Solid true-crime narrative. A pretty college coed Tina Biggar goes missing in 1995 from Farmington Hills, Michigan. When the police begin dissecting her latest activities, they discover she was engaging in a lot of high-risk activity. What began as a college project studying call-girls and Aids, soon found Tina also working as a call girl named Crystal. There she came into contact with a loser-at-life who could not hold a job and lied with every breath. His name was Ken Tranchida and he became f [...]

      For a true crime novel this one was not at all gory. A young college student, Tina Biggar, becomes involved in an AIDS awareness project. From there she decides to launch her own project into the life of the call girl industry. She unfortunately mets up with an undesirable man and that relationship, ultimately led to her death. The devotion of her father who continually sought out and searched clues on his own, had difficulty confiding his innermost fears for his daughterOM BACK COVER: "Bright a [...]

      How did a college student become a call girl? We'll never know because she's dead. This true crime story about Tina Biggar in Michigan is a well-written emotional account of what happened to Tina and detectives' and her father's search for her and her killer, a good read
