Publisher's Summary

Laurie Show was as compassionate as she was hardworking. The outgoing high-school junior worked part-time to pay for the home she and her divorced mother shared. Yet she always had time to tutor friends struggling in school. And she befriended a dejected classmate after his traumatic breakup with his pregnant long-time girlfriend Michelle Lambert. But soon things spiraled into jealous obsession, stalking, and a brutal attack that left Laurie murdered in her own bedroom. And once Michelle started telling one lie too many, the ensuing investigation shattered a peaceful community. Noted crime writer Lyn Riddle also brings you the latest updates on Michelle Lambert, her accomplices, and those involved in this unforgettable case.

    "Better then I expected.."

    Sometimes with true crime books, they will sound very interesting in terms of the details regarding the particular crime. However, because the " who ,what where , when, why " are usually known prior to reading the book, it takes a good author to make it interesting enough to want to read ( or listen) to the book in its entirety, at least without getting bored.
    Unfortunately, there are not enough that fall in that category; this book however, is one of the few.
    I felt that the author stuck to the facts, and didn't overdue it on the backgrounds of the persons involved; which was the problem for me with the last true crime book I read "Pure Murder" by Corey Mitchell.
    I thought the testimony was interesting and didn't feel like trudging through slush to get through it.
    Overall, true crime buffs will enjoy it mand I would recommend this one.

    "Truth is Stranger Than Fiction"

    This book already had me hooked before a twist after the trials. Interesting read, and very good.

    "BORING."

    I don't think I have ever read a book that drags as much as this one . I just spent three hours listening to a ponderous description of where characters went to school, from Pre-K through high school. I might not mind it hottibly-- but the narration is also annoying. I'm so sorry.
