A Killer's Touch by Michael Benson


Denise Amber Lee was a 21-year-old happily married mother of two little boys. She had her whole life ahead of her. . .until an intruder broke into her Florida home. Within a few short hours she was savagely terrorized, murdered, and buried naked in a shallow grave near a desolate swamp.


Michael King, a 38-year-old out-of-work plumber, was a ticking time bomb. For years, neighbors called the police on King, complaining that, among other things, he'd thrown battery acid in their pool and slashed their tires. Denise's fate was far worse. In a horrifying act of cruelty, King bound her with duct tape, raped her repeatedly, then shot her dead.


Incredibly, Denise managed to call 911 twice during her abduction. Eyewitnesses and her distraught husband also called, but a slow, inefficient system tragically failed her. As a result, Florida passed the Denise Lee Law, setting voluntary standards for 911 systems. King was sentenced to death. But for Denise and her loving family, it was too late.

As true crime goes, this story was one of the better ones. The opening chapters that describes the crinme was very well written, it moved fast and since I was not familiar with the crime it had suspense for me, certainly one more familiar with the crime would have known what was coming. The court proceeding portion of the book did not read exactly like the court transcript, which in my opinion is a good choice, too much technical and legal mumbo-jumbo always turns me off, then a quick epilogue to let you know what has been going on and with who ties the story up nicely. I felt this was a well written true crime novel and if you have an interest in reading that type of book you should read this one.

Was dissapointed in this book. I read a lot of true crime and for me this one was tough to get through. I foumd myself flipping through the last several pages. Too much of the trial and testimony by the experts. Was just too slow and boring for me. Definitely did not keep me interested.
