Die, My Love: A True Story of Revenge, Murder, and Two Texas Sisters | [Kathryn Casey]

Die, My Love: A True Story of Revenge, Murder, and Two Texas Sisters

The day before Halloween 2004 was the last day on Earth for respected, well-liked college professor Fred Jablin. That morning, a neighbor discovered his body lying in a pool of blood in the driveway of Jablin's Virginia home. Police immediately turned their attentions to the victim's ex-wife, Piper, a petite, pretty Texas lawyer who had lost a bitter custody battle and would do anything to get her kids back. But Piper was in Houston, 1,000 miles away, at the time of the slaying and couldn't possibly have been the killer...could she?

Publisher's Summary

The day before Halloween 2004 was the last day on Earth for respected, well-liked college professor Fred Jablin. That morning, a neighbor discovered his body lying in a pool of blood in the driveway of Jablin's Virginia home. Police immediately turned their attentions to the victim's ex-wife, Piper, a petite, pretty Texas lawyer who had lost a bitter custody battle and would do anything to get her kids back. But Piper was in Houston, 1,000 miles away, at the time of the slaying and couldn't possibly have been the killer...could she?

So began an investigation into one of the most bizarre cases Virginia and Texas law enforcement agencies had ever encountered: a twisted conspiracy of lies, rage, paranoia, manipulation, and savage murder that would ensnare an entire family - including two lethally close look-alike sisters - and reveal the shocking depravities possible when a dangerously disordered mind slips into madness.

    Story
    "this story could have been a lot better."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    yes, i would develop relationships better. eg: more detail on how piper began some of her affairs started, why, and how she interacted with these lovers.

    i would also like to hear less about tina since what i heard told me basically nothing about the two of them.

    the book went on and on and i was getting tired of listening to it.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kathryn Casey before, how does this one compare?

    yes i liked her reading of shattered but then, that was a better story.

    i found her performance lacking here but i did not like the book and this DOES affect how i look at the narrator sometimes (not always).


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    her voice was for some reason not easy to listen to in this book, this i did feel right from the beginning.

    i had felt the same way when i started reading another book with another reader (dolores clayborne) but i LOVED that book and got to like the reader.


    Could you see Die, My Love being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    yes. it would make a good movie i bet.

    Story
    "Horrid narration."
    What disappointed you about Die, My Love?

    The narration has turned me off very early on. I cannot continue. The reader's faking of the so-called southern accent (ah for I, etc) and her inflections in the verbiage that goes along with the bad accent, well, it's just more than I can stand a minute longer. I have tried overlooking this and just concentrating on the story, being a lover of the author, but it is impossible.


    Has Die, My Love turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but the narrator has turned me off from any other books she has read.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Moe Rock?

    Scott Brick is one of my favorites, but just about anyone who would read this book straight out, instead of so badly trying to play the parts, would have been fine with me. I don't require a lot of dramatization. After all, these are not screen plays, they are BOOKS TO BE READ, mainly the old-fashioned way, to one's self. I think a narrator has to be darn close to an educated, experienced actor to do justice when reading audiobooks because they were generally not written for live acting.


    Any additional comments?

    I wonder if whoever chooses narrators for these audiobooks realizes how important the choice is to the sales. They have just lost the sale of one book, as I return this. And it took a lot, because I like the author a lot and am a nut for true crime. But this one is way overboard as far as what I can stand! I am very disappointed. Usually I can will myself to disregard annoying things like this, but not this time.

    "Good read!"
    If you could sum up Die, My Love in three words, what would they be?

    I love reading true stories! It gives a reminder of what "different people" are out there!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry. It is a shame that there is murder!


    Any additional comments?

    Kathryn Casey is a good author!

    "Horrible! Bleeding from the ears!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love true crime and if I didn't like it. I can't imagine who would.


    Any additional comments?

    Really tried but the book is horrible as is the narrator. Waste of time, money, bleeding from the ears. Couldn't even finish it. :(

    "Overacted"

    Story was OK. I wanted the narrator to calm down - the story wasn't THAT interesting, and overacting did not make it more so.
