Overview

From sidebars to sideshows, this is "The Casey Anthony Murder Trial.� The book is a comprehensive look at the media, judge, jury, defendant, lawyers, witnesses, and evidence, written with eyes wide open. This is what most people never see: the events that occur during a murder trial. With all the elements of an American tragedy, complete with the elevation of the mother to celebrity status, Casey Anthony stood accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter. Caylee was last seen with her mother, and the toddler�s disappearance went unreported for 31 days. A massive worldwide search ensued, before the discovery of Caylee�s remains in a murky Florida swamp six months later. In the trial, both the lawyers and witnesses seemed to cross the lines between fact and fiction during this spectacle of horrors. The media covered the arrest of the mother, and for the first time an American jury selection was televised live, from our home in Pinellas County, Florida. From jury selection to sentencing, this is a comprehensive interpretation of a first-degree murder trial and our American justice system, for good or bad. This is not a storybook, but the story of this trial, done in real time, including the observations and opinions of the two writers as the trial was ongoing.

This is the most complete real time readable trial transcript known. The book examines the murder of Caylee, the trial of her mother, and takes a hard look at the judicial system. This trial and the acquittal of her mother for the murder have resulted in strong opinions, from agreement with the verdict to venomous hatred of all involved in the case and even those who write about this trial. Read and judge for yourself.

No proceeds go to Casey Anthony/family or representatives. Although we have attempted to provide a reasonable interpretation of people and events as they happened, this book is the opinions of the authors and should be considered only as such.

Editorial Reviews

Perface book - David Siar
Very few of us have ever actually witnessed an entire murder trial. I believe you will get a representative look at what really occurs in and outside the courtroom by reading this book. Speaking as one who has been there, this book gives a real feel for the action both inside and outside the courtroom in the trial of a high-profile capital murder case.

A book judging our Justice System with High recommendations! Excellent Read.

"Imagine the concentration, hard work, and pondering both Mother and Daughter have written about this well-known murder trial. The pondering over testimony, even choosing the Jurors - made me want more and more. Although this case in some minds has ended, it will never end in a mother or daughter's mind. The more you read the deeper you fall into the story you thought you knew."

Postsscript Book - Laura Schultz
A BRILLIANT AUTHORS SHEDS A BRIGHT BEAM INTO THE CENTER OF THIS TRIAL : When asked to write the postscript for this book, I knew it was an important story. Reading it makes me realize how right I was about the importance of this book. I also became aware of how much I did not know about the horrific death of this child and the judicial process that was to try her mother for the death. I walked away from reading this book with an understanding of how unpredictable our justice/jury system can be.

This one intriguing book. I'm almost done reading it. Can't put it down once I start reading it. I might have been the only hold out. Really, hard to know once you hear the perspective of the Judge, the Prosecution and the sleazy Defense. Anyway, am almost finished, but Claudette you and your daughter did a fantastic job breaking things down for the lay people. Reading on, good night.

It was brilliant looking at this trial through the eyes of two individuals who we
