Overview

Kill, Kirby, Kill

On March 15th, 1987, police in Anchorage, Alaska arrived at a horrific scene of carnage. In a modest downtown apartment, they found Nancy Newman's brutally beaten corpse sprawled across her bed. In another room were the bodies of her eight-year-old daughter, Melissa, and her three-year-old, Angie, whose throat was slit from ear to ear. Both Nancy and Melissa had been sexually assaulted.

Run, Kirby, Run

23-year-old Kirby Anthoney was a troubled drifter from Twin Falls, Idaho, who had turned to his uncle, John Newman, Nancy's husband. But little did John know that the nephew he took in was a murderous sociopath capable of slaughtering his beloved wife and children while he was away on business. But while police built their case, Kirby bolted for the Canadian border.

Lie, Kirby, Lie

First they hunted him down. Then, authorities began their long, bitter battle to convict him. But justice would not be done until Kirby Anthoney took the stand in his own defense—and showed the world the monster he truly was.

But not my last! Simply an outstanding read. A little too gruesome.... but then we are talking murder.

Burl Barer was already nominated for Best True Crime Book of the Year when he wrote Murder int the Family -- and this one is a real shocker! This is the true story of Kirby Anthoney who raped and murdered his aunt and her two little girls, and how he was brought to justice. It is a non-stop gut wrenching roller coaster of emotion -- you cant put this one down! Burl Barer is, I believe, the best true crime writer going -- and this book proves it. DONT MISS THIS ONE!

Edgar Award winner Burl Barer proves once again that he is one of America's best investigative crime writers in this shocking and compelling true story of Kirby Anthoney, the young psycopath who rapes his own aunt and kills her along with her two little girls. From the opening paragraph to the final sentence, this book is a gripping and factual account of one of the most disturbing crimes in recent times. The photo section is excellent, and Barer's comments at the book's conclusion give added insight into the mental state of sickos such as Kirby Anthoney.

Everything creepy, scary, awful, and unthinkable is REAL in this true crime thriller about Kirby Anthoney, a sicko from Idaho who goes to Anchorage with his girl friend, and then rapes and kills his own aunt and her two little girls -- and has the nerve to think he can get away with it by just saying 'it wasn't me.' As this was pre-DNA it was hard to prove it was him. He is a real twisted guy, and his poor girlfriend feared for her life too. When Jack Olsen praises Burl Barer, you know the book has got to be good. Barer is no doubt one of the best, and MURDER IN THE FAMILY is one of the best written and most unsettling true crime books you'll ever read.

A horrific murder story so well told you cannot put it down regardless of how heinous the crime.
