Description:

Battle Creek, Michigan, is famous as the birthplace of breakfast cereal, and the nearby suburb of Marshall is as wholesome as shredded wheat. On a frigid night in February of 1991, newscaster Diane Newton King was stepping out of her car, her children strapped into the backseat, when a sniper's bullet cut her down. The police assumed that the killer was her stalker-a crazed fan who had been terrorizing King for weeks. But as their investigation ground to a standstill, the police turned to another suspect-one much closer to home. Journalist Lowell Cauffiel re-creates the atmosphere of terror that marked King's last days, giving us a story of celebrity, obsession, and what it means to kill.

Quotes:

...what interests Cauffiel most is unraveling the personality of [the husband], who is portrayed as resentful of living in the shadow of a celebrity wife and a dominating woman., Publishers Weekly

This is both a taut police procedural and a fascinating psychological study of a nonrepentant murderer. For substantial true crime collections., Library Journal

Using police records, court reports, and stories from witnesses, Cauffiel virtually gives a class in criminal justice as the story unfolds. The reader learns the ins and outs of evidence discovery, interrogations, gathering and preparing witnesses, court behavior, and all the other elements of a homicide investigation and trial...an interesting, detailed account of an almost perfect murder., Booklist
