I've seen this author's name crop up from time to time as true crime is my favourite genre to read but this is the first I've read by her.
It was very well told, I thought, with none of the jumping around of the timeline you often get in these books. I don't really "get" why some authors do that and don't just tell the story from the beginning and keep it going that way.
Spookily, as I finished reading this this afternoon it's the ninth anniversary of the crime itself.
Piper's a real piece of work who it seems always got her own way and was never told no often enough in her life. She seemed pretty sure she'd never get caught, it seemed to me, because she was a lawyer and an intelligent woman. A pity she didn't keep up with the current advances in technology...
There really seemed no depths she'd not sink to in getting her own way.
All credit to the police and their investigators who caught up with her pretty fast although she managed to give them the runaround for a few days longer than should have been allowed due to their hands being tied by the prosecutor's office. This probably filled her with extra confidence that she was going to get away with her crime.
I have to applaud the author for using the word poring correctly !! That alone is priceless !
I did come across apostrophe errors and words inserted in odd places in sentences a couple of times, thereby making them nonsensical. Then pedal was spelt peddle-a big ouch !! I did find the description of a person mentioned quite odd as it begins with "A single mom with a long neck"....quite bizarre.
I think I'd have titled this book "For The Children" seeing as it was the familiar refrain throughout.

No matter how enthralling a story may be, editing is still essential. Too much detail, too much repetition. Needed a glossary of characters and a judicial use of appendicies would have made a much better book of it.

I have read several Kathryn Casey books and find them all to be over long and a bit cold to be honest. This book is meticulously researched, but could have been written in half as much detail. And the author just doesn't seem to have the same connection with the victim or their family and friends as say, Anne Rule or M Wiiliam Phelps. Not sure I'd read another one of hers.

Brilliant book. Kathryn Casey is an amazing author. Gives in depth character history and brings the people and places to life. Piper was a manipulative, scheming woman who couldn't handle the fact that Fred had custody of their children and who wanted them all to herself. She was very selfish and obviously had serious mental health issues. A riveting story.

When I here Kathryn Casey was the author, I jumped @ the chance just read her book. She is usually a great author, alongside the graet ann rule, perhaps that why expected a little more from this true crime. However it is still a good read, just as the above authors write so well, they have to keep upping there game!

Well written. For this woman with an alcoholic father who abused her, in the end mental problems eventually surface. In spite of a caring husband, she could not hold down a job for any length of time, her life spiralled out of control and he paid the ultimate price.

I have been an ardent fan of Anne Rule for a number of years and by chance saw her recommendation to read Kathryn Casey's works. This was a really intriguing read and one that has encouraged me to read more of her work.

Brilliantly written book, even though you know the outcome the deviousness and planning was transparent, and make you wonder why the killer thought they'd get away with it.
