Edith is a veteran reporter who personally witnessed most of the story that unfolds in this book, beginning the evening three children drowned in Clinton Lake. That means we’ve produced a book that’s rich in detail and important in its insights, a book that also raises fundamental questions about criminal justice–especially gender equality under the law.
If you’ve not read my earlier book, Reasonable Doubt, I invite you to check it out as well. In that case, I was the first-hand observer, beginning the night the bodies of a young mother and her three children were discovered in their beds, victims of an ax murderer.
And do be sure to explore this website. It contains a lot of video, audio, special interviews, documents and primary source material concerning the events we write about. Feel free to ask questions, trade opinions and offer suggestions. I’d love to hear from you!
