Publisher's Summary

Richard and Victoria Tinyes feared the worst when their thirteen year old daughter Kelly Ann vanished from their quiet suburban community of Valley Stream, New York, on March 3, 1999. But the nightmare to come was worse than they could ever imagine. Only five doors away, in the home of John and Elizabeth Golub, police found Kelly Ann's body stuffed in a plastic garbage bag. She'd been brutally beaten, stabbed, strangled, and mutilated. After weeks of intense investigation, police arrested the Golubs twenty-one-year-old son, Robert - a reclusive young man obsessed with bodybuilding and given to fits of rage. The sensational trial and subsequent conviction of Robert Golub shocked the nation and tore the once peaceful community apart. Neighbors took sides. So did the media. And no one who lived on Horton Road would ever be the same.

Note on audio book: Except for the beginning and end of the book, there is no longer any music.

~ Nightmare On Horton Road ~


This story had me riveted to the speakers! I don't know if this young killer actually thought he'd get away with murder...perhaps because the body *was* well hidden from view in the messy basement of what we call a "hoarder house" (jammed with STUFF) ? Who knows!

Not only was the crime itself quite horrendous, but the fact that the victim AND the killer lived on the SAME little neighborhood street, where everybody knows everybody, and just a few houses apart, made for QUITE the sub story! The hatred between the families that developed as the result of this murder, made daily life for everyone involved a living nightmare.

Even during the trial, the families, friends and neighbors couldn't refrain from constant outbursts of anger and threats towards each other. Obviously the victims family wanted the killers family to just leave their house, move far away and get out of their lives (and sight) forever - but they refused, believing their son was innocent. So the back and forth harassments went on and on. What a story! Held my attention every step of the way...even the trial portion. This was a great book! I will listen to this one again, yes indeed.

I really liked this narrator a LOT. His pitch and tone were perfectly matched for this case. Bravo!

Repetitive

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. It had a habit of constantly repeating the same things over and over and over. It could have been much better written. I felt the author concentrated more on the animosity between the two families than on the crime, victim and investigation.

What about Greg Lutz’s performance did you like?

Well read.

Did he do it?

Would you listen to Against Her Will again? Why?

OH yes I will, I could not get enough. I am passionate about true stores and this one ranks right up there with the best.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes it did, I guess there always has to be a first victim, but why her? Why did he do what he did? Was it the steroids. I have read about steroid concerns prior.

Which scene was your favorite?

The whole book was good

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

For a while I felt for the family and was extremely frustrated with how the family was treated by the neighbors. If I really think about it though, i would probably act the same way if my baby had been killed.

Deep sadness for a senseless act committed by a psychopath.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend this book. The narrator's reading style and voice are PERFECT for this particular book. I applaud the author on his excellent choice of narrator.

Brutal crime

True re story about a young girls murder or should I say vicious butchery... I normally like true crimes but this one was too detail oriented for me and the narrator did not capture my attention

You are there

A horrible true crime story, This audiobook describes in detail the events before and after the killing of Kelli Ann Tinyes. This book gathers details from the victim's family, the accused, and the friends of Kelli Ann. I would say that it is told from the police perspective. The story held my listening attention. The narrator Greg Lutz is crisp and precise.

Tragic....but I couldn't stop listening!

This unfortunately tragic and true story slices the soul. It is gripping and powerful. This book will stay on your mind long after it has been read to you. The narrator is excellent in his tonality.

Against Her Will

Very graphic story of the brutal murder of a young girl, and the devastation left behind for all involved. One of the most thorough true crime books I have read, and I have read many. No happiness here, but amazing interaction of personalities. Highly recommended.

LESS TRUE CRIME THAN IMMATURE PARENT BEHAVIORS

I've read a kazillion true crime books but this is hardly a really good one. This is less about the horrific murder of a young teen than it is an indictment of the family and friends on what is allegedly a bucolic Long Island neighborhood. The possible murderer takes a back seat to the uncivilized, animalistic actions of the victim's family in the wake of the crime and the people who lived on the street where the crime took place. As the wife of a murder victim, I can say first-hand that fighting among the families takes away from what a trial is all about: Justice For All. The adults' behavior was so outrageous that the listener completely forgot about the poor child who was murdered. Pass on this one.
