Rating: Really liked it ♥♡♥
When Karen Gregory was attacked in her Florida home, she screamed. Her scream was heard by more than a dozen neighbors and if was audible for several blocks. Yet no one called the police. Her body was discovered thirty-one hours later and the trail was cold. There were things about this case that puzzled detectives. There was a note left on a car in the driveway, detectives wondered why the police were not called since there was blood and broken glass outside the front door. Also the evidence pointed to a violent struggle, but the house was neat and clean. There were bloody footprints and a white lace teddy was missing.
Some of these questions are answered and for others the detectives had to draw their own conclusions. Mr. French brings all these to our attention. He also chronicles the effect the murder had on Karen’s friends and relatives, showing how a murder affects more than just the person killed and therefore how cruel an act it is.
A very compelling book from start to finish.
