This was a good book. It had a nice pace, kept me interested, and flowed through to its conclusion. Very interesting look at a case with such slim circumstantial evidence, some mistakes, and yet there is an obvious belief that the suspect guilty. Enjoyable for a true-crime buff.

On February 9, 1991 - outside her Marshall, Michigan home - a popular television newscaster was shot to death in front of her two young children. At the time of her murder, Diane Newton King had been working for the Battle Creek television station, WOTV, for two years as the morning news anchor. To everyone who watched her on television, it appeared that Diane Newton King was living an idyllic life. She had a fulfilling career, a beautiful family, and a devoted ex-cop husband who simply adored her.

However, Diane's fame also brought with it an equal amount of terror into her life. She began receiving anonymous phone calls and mysterious notes - at first fawning, then insistent...then threatening. Finally, on a winter's day in 1991, the pretty, personable broadcast journalist was gunned down in her own driveway, as her children sat buckled in their carseats.

Diane Newton King was dead - the apparent victim of an obsessed fan-turned-stalker's twisted infatuation. But the investigation that followed soon revealed a shocking truth the police feared they could never prove: the real killer was waiting for her at home...as close to Diane as 'Till Death do we Part'.

I must say that I'd never heard of Diane Newton King's murder, although I also read Family Affairs - another book by Andy Hoffman - last month. One element of Andy Hoffman's writing that I really appreciate, is that he writes about the crime and subsequent court case very simply. He doesn't become enmeshed with the various peripheral issues of a case. I give this book an A+!
