Overview

Limb from Limb by George Hunter, Melissa Ann Preddy

He Used A Hand Saw. . .

On Valentine's Day 2007, in a suburb of Detroit, stay-at-home dad Stephen Grant filed a missing person's report with the local sheriff. Grant's wife Tara had disappeared five days earlier. He'd been searching for her ever since--or so he claimed.

He Started With Her Hands. . .

Over the next two weeks, police questioned Grant. He lashed out, accusing them of harassment, pleading his innocence in television interviews. He swore that his wife, a successful businesswoman, had abandoned him and their children. Then the police made a gruesome discovery. . .

He Kept Her Torso In The Garage.

After his arrest, Grant confessed to strangling his wife and cutting her body into fourteen pieces while the children slept. Detroit News reporter George Hunter interviewed Grant several times, learning shocking details of his relationship with Tara. This chilling account goes inside the twisted mind of a husband who snapped--and a marriage that ended in bloody carnage.

This book is well researched and well written. I could not give it 5 stars because the story ventures into too much " filler fluff". It chases rabbit trails like telling the background of each character. It tells stuff about other murder cases that, I feel, have nothing to do with the story. This made reading the book a chore. I am not disappointed that I bought it, but I definitely won't be retreading it any time soon. However, you will enjoy the read if you can stay focused.

Having lived near Detroit I followed this case closely. This author captured the true evil of Tara Grants husband. Worth the time and money. Highly recommend to all who read true crime.
