Summary

The fatal night
On a warm Florida evening, Karen Gregory saw a familiar face at her door. What the beautiful young woman could not know was that she was staring into the eyes of her killer - a savage monster who would rape her, stab her to death, and leave her battered body on the floor outside the bedroom.
The desperate search
Detectives frantically sifting through the evidence were tormented by one disturbing question after another: What did the strangely worded note from a friend mean? Why was the house so orderly, when it had been the scene of a frenzied struggle? Why were the bloody footprints on the carpet barefoot? What happened to the white lace teddy missing from Karen's drawer?
The shattering discovery
Police detective Larry Tosi stayed up nights watching the video of the grisly crime scene, looking for the one telltale clue that would lead him to Karen's killer - until slowly, and with growing horror, he realized that the maniac he was hunting was someone he knew...someone he called a friend.

real life courtroom procedure <br />

brilliantly read. I struggle with the repetition of some footage, but particularly at the early stage when one person said " this murder was not special only one person, noone special or famous...it makes US public look like life is cheap and murder is no big deal...a real insight. hope this is just the authors angle and not a general viewpoint!!

Great Writing

The great writing in this book pulled me right through it. Each step builds up to the next, with just enough context to tie it all together without bogging down. I felt like I was part of the investigation. The author revealed clues without clobbering me over the head with them, and when they reappeared later in the story I felt like I was solving the puzzle myself. After finishing the book I wasn't surprised to find out the author is an award-winning journalist.

I got this book cheap with a Whispersync deal so my expectations were low, but I really enjoyed it and would not have regretted spending a credit on it.

The narrator does a perfect job.
