Overview

Justice for Bonnie: An Alaskan Teenager's Murder and Her Mother's Tireless Crusade for the Truth by Karen Foster, I.J. Schecter

When Karen Foster was told that something had happened to her eighteen-year-old daughter, Bonnie Craig, she knew what it meant. The Alaska State Troopers investigating the scene ruled it a hiking accident, but for Karen, the pieces didn’t add up. Bonnie would never have ditched class to go hiking. And she didn’t drive—so how would she have reached McHugh Creek, miles out of town, in the first place? Armed with little more than her own conviction, Karen set out to find the truth behind her daughter’s death.
 
After a long series of false leads and dead ends, it seemed the case would forever go unsolved. Then, after twelve years of public campaigning, private despair, and increasingly tense dealings with the detectives working the case, Karen received an e-mail that would change everything; the system, at long last, had produced a match for the unknown DNA in the case—from a man in a jail all the way across the country.
 
Here is the chilling tale of a mother’s unflagging fight to track down the monster who stole her daughter’s life—and the battle to ensure that he, and others like him, would no longer be able to evade justice.

This book is more about "Mom" than it is about Bonnie. The first few chapters read OK, but then it gets into all the "oh me, oh my" of Mom and then into all the efforts Mom puts into changing laws etc. While I can understand that Mom was terribly hurt by her daughters murder, I read true crime books because I want to know the story of the crime, not about Mom. She does a good job of patting herself on the back. She is listed as the co-author, but it is written as though she is the only author.
