Travis Alexander was a handsome, hard-working, practicing Mormon who lived in Mesa, Arizona. His good looks and easygoing manner made him popular with everyone, especially the ladies. So when he was found with a bullet wound in the face and his throat slashed, the brutal murder sent shock waves throughout his community. Who could have done something so sinister?
But soon a suspect was singled out-Jodi Arias. A beautiful, aspiring photographer, Jodi had been in a long-distance relationship with Travis the year before. But Travis wasn't interested in a serious commitment; he was seeing several women during that time. When he broke up with her, that didn't stop Jodi from leaving California, moving to just a few miles away from Travis's home, and inserting herself into his daily life.
Investigators found one piece of startling evidence in Travis's home that implicated Jodi. But in a bizarre turn of events, Jodi would claim self-defense. Was she a victim - or a devious femme fatale?

Don't tease crazies
Well as this is true crime I can't say I liked anything best, however I did like this account better than HLN's Author Jane Mitchell.
Fifteen girlish okay
Nope, just think if Travis would have followed his own lead being as though he was a " mormon elder" and sex before marriage is a no go he would be alive today. Jody Arias was treated like trash and thrown away and being as though she was crazy this was the outcome.
I wish there was a detailed account of Arias's life for a better understanding of why she was so insane and more information on this case is general. This book is not nearly as bad as 50% of the reviews led me to believe, I followed the case and I think this book was pretty spot on, its the best book on this case out for now.
The book included much information not heard on HLN, a little more info on the neurosis of Travis and Jodi's craziness.
Most memorable was the beginning. explanations of how this craziness began.
The story is written as it played out in the media. Nothing was "news" for me however I noticed the book reports that Jodi attended Travis' funeral; when in fact she did not. She had only attended his memorial service. Second, I noticed Shannon Hogan referencing "the shower floor" when relating details of Travis' murder when in fact, "the bathroom floor" was accurate.
