For Anyone Who Ever Doubted He Was Guilty, Read This Book

Perhaps I am a little too close to be objective. I love Linda Dulin almost as much as I loved my own mother. She was the greatest teacher to ever grace the halls of Gatesville High School. I owe her a lot that I will never be able to repay. She taught me more than I can...
Perhaps I am a little too close to be objective. I love Linda Dulin almost as much as I loved my own mother. She was the greatest teacher to ever grace the halls of Gatesville High School. I owe her a lot that I will never be able to repay. She taught me more than I can ever express. When her beautiful daughter, and my friend, Kari died I was shocked at the news. When Linda Dulin told me what she could about the case, I was shocked at the things she revealed to me. As I watched the trial I shed tears for my friend and my former teacher. Yes, I was convinced Matt Baker was guilty long before I read this book; however, it is my opinion that after reading this account even the doubters will believe.

It's a story that shows the tenacity of wanting to find the truth because of the love of two parents for their child and their grandchildren. The book gives details that some of us never knew, and lays the case out very well to prove, not just beyond a reasonable doubt, but beyond a shadow of a doubt that Matthew Dee Baker is a murderer and belongs behind bars for the rest of his life.

I like true crime books anyway. Carlton Stowers, Ann Rule and now Kathryn Casey are some of my favorite authors in this genre. This book is convincing, well written and thoroughly researched. I highly recommend it to anyone who knows the story and to those who do not. A must read.

    Excellent Research

    Read this with no previous knowledge of case. Casey does great in character development and organized story line. It is a page turner; found myself thinking of case even when not reading.
