Publisher's Summary

In Washington Township, Michigan, on Valentine's Day, 2007, Stephen Grant filed a missing persons report on his beloved wife, Tara. The stay-at-home father of two was beside himself with despair. Why would Tara abandon him and their family? Was she involved with another man?

Stephen's frantic, emotional search for Tara made national headlines, and the case was featured on Dateline among other television shows and news outlets. But key elements in Stephen's story still weren't adding up: Why did he wait five days to go to police? What was the nature of his relationship with his children's beautiful, 19-year-old babysitter? Why did Stephen have cuts on his hands, and random bruises? Then, the police made a gruesome discovery.

Parts of Tara Grant's body started turning up around the woods near their home. The truth was finally coming to light...and, after a two-day manhunt, Stephen admitted to having killed Tara―first strangling her, then cutting her body into 14 pieces before burying them. This is the shocking true story about a bitter, cheating husband whose crimes were revealed by the Blood in the Snow.

Good true crime writer

Tom Henderson is one of the better true crime writers around, close in quality to the two Olsens, Ann Rule etc. Here he does justice to the story of yet another psychopath who shatters the world of everyone he touches. His crime is truly heinous, and his bug-eyed facade of crocodile tears fools no one into believing that he actually has a shred of compassion anywhere in his being. This case is literally one for the books, and is taught in criminal justice classes.

Mortifying!

I couldn't believe this story was true until I looked online and found out it truly was. I couldn't put this book down at all.

Who cares about the detectives high school life

This book bored me because it went off on so many tangents. No one cares where the detective went to prom or worked in high school. Too much information. Just tell the story

Character Development Flat<br />

Disappointed in story. Didn't really get to "know" the victim and the timeline was drawn out in a strange, anti-climatic style.

Audible fan

This is a good book, to read especially the court room scene's. The only thing I would like to add, is that the Author, should have let the readers, know more about the main people in this book, their lives leading up to what occurred, but it's still a good true crime book. So Tragic, and disgusting!!! the husband, and so much sorrow for the children and that's a understatement..... LB Blair.

GREAT Listen in True Crime

This true crime book was a very good read. I started reading it, thinking it might be run of the mill, but I have no complaints! I listened to this and am very impressed with the narrator, Paul Michael Garcia, as well as the author, Tom Henderson.

Narrator’s voice sucks, but story is good

The story is good. The author gives a lot of details, almost too many and I’m nosy and always have 20q’s. But we don’t need to know what the detective/officers were like in high school. Some of the details are just not necessary. The book really could have been shorter. The narrator’s voice is not pleasant to listen to but you adjust to it. And he’s horrible at impersonating a woman’s voice. Horrible. But overall I give it 4 stars because it’s a good yet sad/disturbing story.

Recommend this book,an exceptional author.

This story is so well put to paper, an excellent break down of a violent, narcissist, who's sickening murder of his wife, leaving his children with a loving mother. And the arrogance,he displays without regard for his children and all the peoples lives he has torn apart,makes the book all the more saddened.
