Publisher's Summary

In October 2007, 23-year-old Stacy Peterson vanished from the Chicago suburb of Bolingbrook, leaving behind her husband and children. Retired Police Sergeant Drew Peterson, 30 years Stacy's senior, steadfastly asserted his innocence and maintained that his wife had simply fled their tumultuous marriage and run off with another man.

Then came a startling development in February 2008. After a second autopsy, the unusual death of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, was ruled a homicide. Three and a half years earlier, Savio had been found dead in the bathtub of their home, but in light of Stacy's curious disappearance, Kathleen's body was exhumed and the case was reopened.

Drawing upon exclusive interviews with Stacy's friends and family and even Drew himself, Chicago-area reporter Joseph Hosey presents the most researched account of the Stacy Peterson case yet. Still, as the charges against Drew Peterson mount, one haunting question remains: Where on earth is Stacy?

Drew Peterson wife killer~ better than expected~

plot: Drew Peterson Police Sgt has the skills to intimidate and even kill his 2 wives.

Drew Peterson in this book is a very charming and funny man but he also has psychopathic behaviors. He is married 3 times. Wife #2 mysteriously is found in a dry bathtub dead from a fall. Wife #3 *disappears* mysteriously and he claims has run away with another man but left her children. Too many loose ends and sudden disappearances of a blue barrel from the garage the day Stacy comes up missing lead to suspicions of murder. Police exhume the body of Wife #2 and find it was murder. Drew becomes the prime suspect for the murder of one wife and the suspect in wife #3. This is very good it goes over his back ground his mistakes and his clever ploys to intimidate and bully all his wives and girlfriends into doing what he wants. Better than expected. I give it 4 stars for reality based story of how they finally caught and convicted the clever killer Drew Peterson. While in the federal Prison in Terre Haute Indiana he planned to have a contract murder of two people ...including the DA who helped convicted him. He second trial pretty much guarantees he will spend the rest of his life in prison.

ok

It is a pretty basic account. No new insights. Needs to be updated with new information.

Pretty good

Interesting story. The author is preoccupied with Greta Van Susteren. It was a little dry, but overall, I learned a lot about how narcissistic Peterson is

Fascinating Story but same info given over & over.

I did struggle to finish and it seemed to reveal nothing new. It was very repetitive of the same info throughout. Narrator was OK, not the greatest. Very interesting story though. Thank you.

Could not put it down

If you could sum up Fatal Vows in three words, what would they be?

What a sociopath. This guy was unbelievable. The balls on him! Makes me wonder what kind of childhood he had. He is sick.
