Synopsis

The night she was attacked in her Florida home, Karen Gregory let out a scream so piercing that it carried for several blocks. More than a dozen neighbors heard her, but none called the police. By the time her body was discovered, thirty one hours later, the trail was already cold. The detective assigned to solve the murder ran down one blind alley after another, eliminating one suspect after another, until finally the evidence led him to the front door of one of his best friends -- a friend whose wedding ceremony he had officiated over just a few months before. At first the detective didn't want to believe it. But as the mystery deepened, he found himself studying his friend's hands, trying to tell if they were the same size as the bloody handprints left on Karen's leg.

    Thorough & Well-Written

    This is one of the most thoroughly written true crime books I've read in recent years. While it seemed to bog down in some places, the way the information was presented also enhanced my understanding of the frustrating nature of the legal system and of the outrageous antics that some attorneys are willing to adopt in their zeal to win. Well done!

    Unanswered cries

    Sad story but hard to understand how an entire neighborhood did nothing to help. Shame on them. Hope I never act that way.

    Actual murder and trial

    This is an in depth look at the workings of the law and perhaps justice in the US. A well written and researched dissertation that leaves you wondering if justice was truly served and an appropriate sentence imposed.

    Fantastic!

    Very well written and not a boring paragraph in the entire book. Although a very sad ending for the victim and family, I felt like the jurors did an excellent job in coming to a correct decision.
