Battle Creek, Michigan, is famous as the birthplace of breakfast cereal, and the nearby suburb of Marshall is as wholesome as shredded wheat. On a frigid night in February of 1991, newscaster Diane Newton King was stepping out of her car, her children strapped into the backseat, when a sniper's bullet cut her down. The police assumed that the killer was her stalker - a crazed fan who had been terrorizing King for weeks. But as their investigation ground to a standstill, the police turned to another suspect - one much closer to home. Journalist Lowell Cauffiel recreates the atmosphere of terror that marked King's last days, giving us a story of celebrity, obsession, and what it means to kill.

I am a mid male. That is mid-western, middle class, middling sized, and middle road...as in politically Independent.
Someone called this gripping...I wanted to grip the author's neck and beg him to stop writing. Don't waste your time and money on this crap. The newspaper article was likely more compelling. Add that to the terribly arranged story. The boring people involved...the people the made up this story could have been replaced by potted palms.
Something better I sincerely hope
It was narrated by a guy who sounded like an undertaker on sedatives.If he didn't like the book he should not have narrated it
Everything after the title
I have wasted enough time on this.
Love books, listen to 3-4 books a week, thriller and true crimes favorite.
I prefer Rule or Olsen for True Crime, the way this was written seemed fake. The narrator didn't help with some of his accents, which got annoying. I'm returning this book.
