This was a truly fascinating, chilling read. The story of Travis Alexander and Jodi Arias has intrigued me from the beginning but I didn't know all the details till reading this book. The jury without a doubt made the right call and although I wish she was sitting on death row right now, I find comfort knowing she is locked up for life and can never hurt anyone else with her rage, lies, and manipulation. Travis was not a perfect man, as none of us are, but he was a good person who deserved to live a complete life, as we all do. I pray his family and friends can find peace in knowing his killer is put away for good, and he is in Heaven smiling down on them... I've also read Shanna Hogan's other book, Dancing With Death, and I have to say, she is emerging as a talented true crime author. If you enjoyed this book, definitely check it out.

I bought this book in store three days before the official release date (after reading JVM's book) and read it in two days. In my opinion, this book is much better written than JVM's book, and has more facts and less opinion. I followed the trial very closely and this book still contained information that was new to me.

I followed this trial and there was a lot of background information that was new to me. Very easy to read. The author stuck to the facts but I did enoy the last chapter where the author finally allows for some of her opinions on the events leading up to the murder. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about this case.

No fluff, no speculation, no sensationalization - just honest reporting of the facts.  Shanna's writing style is honest and easy to read.  Although I watched every minute of the trial by live feed, I still found myself eagerly turning pages.  For the reader who knows little about the trail, this will be a real page-turner.  I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Love love love this Book!  This was not written like Janes book,or others. This was written very objectively ,to the point. Very detailed information! Wonderful author!!

This has everything you need to know about the case, even though it has obvious errors of language like the "corroded" artery (as opposed to the rust-free ones), and "stifling" instead of "stippling,"

Great breakdown of the whole story I followed the case religiously but there were a few things included in the book that I was not aware of! Very good read!

Loved this book. I watched the trial from start to finish and was surprised that I could learn so much more about the lives of Travis and Jodi and their troubled and tragic relationship. Great read! I definitely recommend this book.  After the retrial, I hope Shanna Hogan writes the sequel before Jane Velez-Mitchell can steal her thunder... again.

Interesting facts, awkward organization. I'm glad I read it but also glad I borrowed it from the library instead of buying it.

This is THE book on Jodi Arias to read! Believe me, I researched and researched and was pleased with it.

While the book may be an interesting read for those who did not follow the trial, those who did will find it dull. There were no revelations or insights. The book was definitely written by a reporter in the same style as a newspaper column:( Who/What/Where/When ) and just as colorful . I didn't think anyone could make this tale so dull, but Ms. Hogan did just that. Would not recommend

Shanna Hogan's writing really gets into the personalities of the main characters. You get to know Travis Alexander as a real person, not a saint, but not the perverted pedophile that his killer wants you to believe he was. Even though I watched the whole trial on TV and read other articles I felt like I got a more complete picture when I read this book. She also gives insights into Jodi Arias's motivation to slaughter Travis. I can't wait for her next book!

Engrossing, well written account of the sleazy relationship between two unlikable people that ends with a vicious murder.

Thought this book was an exceptionally well written. I watched the trial and through reading this book found answers to what actually happened before during and after the case.

This was a very well written book. I couldn't put it down. Now with that being said. I don't see signs of an physically abusive relationship. I've been in bad relationships, and this is not what it looks like.

Well written, but having watched the trial and read JVM's book (another rehash) I didn't find much new. There has to be more information or red flags that no one seems to provide, as to how this monster was created.

I enjoyed this book. I didn't see a lot of the trial on TV, so much of the information was new to me. It was nice to read all the background information about Travis. My one complaint was that there were too many misspellings and typos - the book should have been proofread better. But on the whole, it is a very good and thorough account of the murder and the trial, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the case.
