Overview

In a luxury Boston hotel on April 14, 2009, police discovered the body of a beautiful young woman—her head battered, a bullet through her heart. Within hours, the story exploded, making headlines across the nation. The victim, a masseuse named Julissa Brisman, had advertised her erotic services on popular classified ads Web site Craigslist. A twenty-two-year-old medical student named Philip Markoff was her last-known client…

The Boston Police Homicide Unit followed a digital trail that led to Markoff's home, where investigators found a gun, prepaid cell phones, plastic handcuffs, and other evidence linking Markoff to Brisman. They also uncovered a stash of  women’s undergarments, raising even more questions about their suspect: How many other women did Markoff meet before Brisman? And what happened to them? This is the true story of one woman’s DATE WITH DEATH.

    Save your money

    Not that impressed. The author repeated herself a lot and spent too much time talking about politics and unrelated matters I believe just to fill space in what would otherwise have been a very short book. I mean who cares if Barack Obama got a lot of parking tickets when he lived in Massachusetts??? What does that have anything to with the Philip Markoff case? I also think this book was written a bit prematurely and perhaps should have been written after the trial. Take my advice and save your money...

    A Good Read...

    I enjoyed this book, however, I felt the author told way to much info about the people in office and the reputation of the cops.... I wanted to really get to know the mind of the criminal. The book was very repetitive. I just expected more.

    Not impressed

    The author went on so many rambles it was hard to keep up. The story itself was facinating but this book would have been better if the outcome of the case was known before it was written. Over-all I am disappointed.

    True Crime at its best

    Michelle McPhee is a great true crime reporter. She knows Boston politics ... extremely interesting stuff. I have A DATE WITH DEATH on my eReader, on my nightstand, and all my friends are getting it for Christmas this year.
