This impeccably written and absolutely chillling true-crime drama details the horrific murder of Betsy Faria in 2011, and the harrowing and twisty rode to justice that followed.

Co-authored by the criminal defense attorney assigned to the case, the story is packed with details straight from the case file – details that are as tragic as they are just plain outrageous.

Betsy, a young mother living with terminal cancer, was horrifically murdered on Dec 27, 2011 in a small suburb of St. Louis Missouri. Not familiar with the case, I was careful not to read any background, so I could experience the story first-hand. And what a story it is!

Without giving the plot away, (no spoilers here), this is clearly a story that begs to be told, if for nothing else than to ensure that the perpetuators behind this appalling crime, and those involved in it’s mishandling, receive their just dues.

Hard to put down, I read this book almost straight through, following detail after detail that eventually became almost outlandish in their very evilness. (Not surprisingly, I had no trouble at all understanding the publicity that has followed, including coverage on Dateline, a podcast, and now a tv mini-series).

Well worth the read, this is a densely factual inside-look at a terrible crime and it’s brutal consequences, an engrossing and valuable addition to any true-crime lovers library.

A great big thank you to NetGalley, the publisher and the authors for an ARC of this book. All thoughts presented are my own.
