In Who Killed My Daughter?, acclaimed young adult author Lois Duncan recounts the harrowing story of her own daughter’s tragically unsolved murder, and her personal quest to find and bring a killer to justice.
Teri Clark Linden performs this raw and affecting memoir, her calm, even voice bringing some balance to the emotional turmoil evident throughout this intense audiobook. Who Killed My Daughter? is a poignant and elegiac recollection of personal grief and grit in the face of immeasurable horror, and Duncan’s journey through shock to rage and eventually uneasy acceptance is gripping, and not to be missed.
The best-selling young adult novelist recounts her daughter's mysterious shooting death and her own investigation into the crime, describing her use of a psychic to contact her dead child and expose the truth.

The Narrator has a very odd speaking pattern that became increasingly intolerable for me. She reads almost every sentence as an interrogative sentence. Her voice goes up at the end of each sentence as if she is asking a question even when she is reading a fact. So, possibly, I may have enjoyed this book slightly more if it had been read by another narrator.
All scenes having to do with psychic readings should have been ommitted. As the genre implies, a true crime novel should be made up of known facts. The endless droning on about the numerous psychic readings the author attended was nonsensical and did not add to the story in any way at all. There is not one "fact" that was offered during any psychic reading that aided the author in finding the answer to her question "Who Killed My Daughter". The readings of these transcripts from the psychic were boring and pointless to this listener and detracted from the story.
I enjoy reading nonfiction. However, this story (even though there is a sequel) suffers from the number one issue with true stories, it is unresolved. So it is fascinating to read about the family, the case, and all the possible solutions. But you have to be okay without those answers.
