First Line: ” ‘Hi, Mom.’ It was Scott Peterson on the line.

Michael Fleeman delves into the story of the Laci Peterson murder. In the short 250 pages the reader reads all the information that had already come out during the investigation itself. This book was a slight disappointment for myself. After reading Catherine Crier’s book, A Deadly Game and Sharon Rocha’s book, For Laci, this book was not up to par. There was no secret, hidden information like in Crier’s book. There was no heartrending, tear-jerking recollections like in Rocha’s book. This was just a straight repetition of the facts. It was dull in places, and never really grabbed my attention. For those who watched the events fold out on CourtTV and other stations, you already know everything in this book. It was just okay for me.
