    1. I didn t review this right away like I should have but I have notes from the reading and I remember some things I remember being concerned that the author wouldn t be as impartial as I wanted him to be since the victim was his daughter Ironically enough, I had nothing to worry about If anything he wasn t harsh enough on the p.o.s who murdered his daughter Don t get me wrong he s probably on par with most people but I take a harder stance against monsters like this one There are so many aspects o [...]

    2. I thought Lardner maintained a very calm, dispassionate tone in this book, which is surprising given that it s about his own daughter s murder Or perhaps not so surprising, once you learn that Lardner is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist In any case, this was is a very tragic story of a gifted young artist who was killed right in the prime of her life, and a troubled and violent young man who, given his background, never really had much of a chance.In this book Lardner exposed the criminal jus [...]

    3. What can I father do when his daughter has already perished from the hands of a brutal murderer Fight the ghost of someone who s long gone Fight the parents of this ghost No He must fight the system that failed him, that failed countless others and that if it isn t changed would continue to fail until one day you and I find ourselves in the same inescapable situation loosing our children due to the negligence of those who are getting paid to protect us This is a truly sad book It recounts the st [...]

    4. All superlatives Combines beautiful writing with merciless honesty This is a _Washington Post_ reporter s investigation of the murder of his own daughter by an ex boyfriend He does a remarkable job of keeping his own feelings out of the story as he lays out for the reader the many, many times and many ways the system failed Kristin until she was finally killed He describes the passing of the National Stalker and Violence Reduction Act, and Kristin s law in Massachusetts, with relief, but with th [...]

    5. It was honestly really dry I had to force myself to read it, no matter what part of the book I was reading It seemed to drag on and on There were a lot of good insights, but I felt like he was trying really hard to stick to his journalism roots and be impartial on a subject he had no shot at being impartial about.Not a book I particularly enjoyed, although there was a fair amount of good information in here I d recommend if people were looking to read a book on the subject that they try to find [...]

    6. This is the true story of a promising young woman who was killed by a jealous ex boyfriend written by her devastated father Prior to writing the novel, the author won a Pulitzer Prize for a series of Washington Post articles about the same topic The tone of the book is not surprisingly angry, but the book jumped from topic to topic ranging from the poor structure of the legal system when dealing with domestic violence and the disturbing upbringing of the murderer with no real consistency Though [...]

    7. In 1992, the author s 21 year old daughter was shot to death by her ex boyfriend who had been stalking her At the time, she was an art student in college and had everything going for her Her father starts to question the domestic violence laws and as a result, he starts to work towards reforming them In the end, a bill called Kristin s Law is established which forces judges to recognize domestic violence as a crimminal act rather than as a civil matter This was a heartbreaking story to read and [...]

    8. Such a tragic story Lardner is an excellent writer that has taken the time to share his daughters tragedy with the world Hopefully it will reach young women and educate them about the warning signs of abusers and the way that these criminals can ruin, or end, innocent lives.

    9. Book read for law school about the author s 21 year old daughter who was stalked and murdered by her ex boyfriend in college Great read for any who seek to understand stalking, abuse, and the problems for battered women within our legal system.

    10. Depressing story of a real life incident The father poured out his angst in too many pages profiling the incompetency of the Boston Police Department as well as the legal system as a whole.

    11. It was a little too long, could have had less talk and repetitive information If this author writes any books of this nature, he may want to get some tips from Ann Rule.
