    The trial of 25-year-old Casey Anthony for the death of her daughter, Caylee, was the most sensational case in America since O.J. Simpson’s. After being acquitted in July 2011, Ms. Anthony instantly became one of the most infamous women in the world. Dr. Keith Ablow distills tens of thousands of pages of documents he has obtained, his behind-the-camera, one-on one interviews, and his decades of experience in the world of forensic psychiatry to make sense of this troubled young woman.

    I attended the Casey Anthony trial last year and I can tell you this book was great - I thought I knew most everything since I have been following the case since it began but this book was great! A MUST listen!

    No one ever believes their dream vacation can instantly turn into a tragic nightmare...until it's too late. Some tourists vanish without a trace. Over 170 people have disappeared from cruise ships around the world since 1995, several under very suspicious circumstances. Others have their lives senselessly stolen, like the 8-year-old boy sucked into an unprotected pool drain at a major resort, leaving his mother crying out his name as security staff held her at gunpoint.

    Loni Ann, Cynthia, Lauren, Cheryl, and Sara seemed to have it all - beauty, wealth, children, and a husband who they believed to be this perfect man - Brad Cunningham. He was handsome, charismatic, and mysterious. They adored him and tried to give him all he wanted. But he wanted everything: sex, money, and it seemed, their very lives. How long would it take before he finally got what he deserved?

    Ann Rule did such a great job with this book - it was a captivating listen and I have listened to it more than once. How this guy could get 4 intelligent, successful, career-minded, educated, not to mention great mothers to their children to marry him and then proceed to run over them emotionally, mentally, FINANCIALLY and commit serious Parental Alienation with their children, is hard to believe - but he did. It was like a HUGE "Who The Bleep Did I Marry?" flashback! You must get this book!

    The story of Diane Downs, pre-Susan Smith, was told extremely well by Diane Fanning. I wish it was unabridged and longer, but loved it just the same. Great true crime.

    An in-depth story of the astronaut love triangle that shocked America. This captivating account casts light on Lisa Nowak's groundbreaking fall from grace. She was accomplished, successful, and heroic - one of the first astronauts to fly a space shuttle mission after the 2003 Columbia tragedy. Then a primitive attack of jealousy led to a fateful confrontation with her romantic rival that destroyed her reputation, ended her career and left a victim dazed and confused.

    Diane Fanning did a great job with this book - I am retired Navy and I was amazed at all I learned from her. To think this happened and how someone who was so intelligent, successful, highly respected and a great achiever could possibly lose all that over a guy. My heart breaks for every woman who has become so caught up in a relationship that they make decisions not thought through, that they never normally would carry out, over a guy. OMG do you know what it takes to graduate from the Naval Academy nevermind then become a NASA astronaut? Get this book!

    There's no doubt about it, breakups suck. But in the first few hours or days or weeks that follow, there's one important truth you need to recognize: Some things can't and shouldn't be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him.

    Based on five years of investigative reporting and research into forensic psychology and criminology, Erased presents an original profile of a widespread and previously unrecognized type of murder: not a hot-blooded, spur-of-the-moment crime of passion, as domestic homicide is commonly viewed, but a cold-blooded, carefully planned and methodically executed form of erasure.

    It was the trial that stunned America, the verdict that shocked us all. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?

    A great listen! I attended the Casey Anthony trial in Orlando and was able to listen to Jeff Ashton in person. This book is excellent and I highly recommend it. I hope to buy a copy and have him sign it. Only way to really understand the trial and verdict is to have been in the courtroom - he takes you there and then some! Great job Jeff!
