Norman was more of the follower of the three and did as his older brothers said. Bruce, as the eldest, was in charge for the most part. I always thought David was the smartest and most certainly the most ruthless.
Do you think the movie is accurate? The movie is accurate in parts but it is most definitely Hollywoodized. Some of the scenes are composite accounts of several incidents and some of the scenes never took place. Also, Bruce Johnston Jr.

Jailing the Johnston Gang: Bringing Serial Murderers to Justice - eBook
This book was not written by Ann Rule, and that's a pity. The case is really interesting, but the telling isn't that interesting. Sometimes even when there is a detail that should be tantalizing and it just gets dropped. I believe some of that is writing skill, and some of that is a chip on the shoulder of the various sources about how law enforcement isn't appreciated and how getting different groups city, county, feds, prosecutors to work together is usually really hard but not with them, and This book was not written by Ann Rule, and that's a pity.
I believe some of that is writing skill, and some of that is a chip on the shoulder of the various sources about how law enforcement isn't appreciated and how getting different groups city, county, feds, prosecutors to work together is usually really hard but not with them, and how much that movie sucked!
Yes, the case that inspired the book also inspired a movie, At Close Range, which the law side hated, feeling that it glorified the criminals. I disagree that it glorified them, but nonetheless, I think of a writer like Rule and how she talked to victims, perpetrators, and law enforcement and wove such rich and educational books, and feel the loss here. Especially, it feels like a big part of the issues is that Mowday simply isn't that interested in the humanity of the criminals, but he doesn't create really human portraits of the law enforcement side either, so maybe it's him.
Feb 21, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: true-crime , pennsylvania-books. A little less journalism and a little more story telling and this would have been a great book. It's obvious that the author wanted to get all the facts straight, but almost any reader would get a little bit lost in this book.

A few years back I saw a movie loosely based on the Johnston Gang murders and I become curious about the real story behind the case. Mowday is determined to basically list everyone who was interviewed about the gang along with where they live and mention every police officer involved in the case by name. The book A few years back I saw a movie loosely based on the Johnston Gang murders and I become curious about the real story behind the case.
The book is extremely repetitive and does not tell the story in a way that someone with no knowledge of the case could follow. I found the book so difficult to read that I gave up without finishing it. Good history of the Family and area of the crimes.
