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.

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 Jurers - 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. It isn't like hearing it while you are trying to tell your children to stop fighting, cooking dinner, or half listening while on a phone call - this book takes you into the head of a mother who had no care where her daughter was for thirty one days. It brings you into the FBI searching for evidence on her computer, how to kill someone, with both chemicals and instruments. It points out the lies, and the joy Casey was having with her boyfriend and imaginary friends. At times I was baffled by the Justice in our country when so much was up front - and the Jury in my eyes, one sided. It makes you wonder how any mother can be dancing up a storm while lying to her parents about the where abouts of her daughter and their only granddaughter. It makes you want to change the system, open the eyes of those who were chosen to judge the murder case of Casey Antohony. There has never been a better concept in my view of any other real life murder trail then that of Claudette Walker and her daughter Matrix Filia. Witha sixth sense alone, and the insight of being a mother and grandmother my intuition has made its way to a conclusion. Now, don't let this outstanding, well written, and widely known case slip through your fingers - I know once you start reading, getting into the nitty gritty of the life of Casey Anthony, you too won't be able to place the book down. Congratulations on a book which should be read by families all across this land of ours. You never trust anyone - even your own daughter when a mother believes she is lying. Read it today,. Nancy

Claudette Walker has no insight into this trial. This book reads like a book report at best. Another so called author trying to make money off the death of a child. No matter what spin or stance she takes in this book this was done solely to put some money in her pocket. From someone who has seen every second of the trial I do not advise reading this. Claudette was writing a screen play also to be made into a movie with Altman and Altman and the Film maker have since backed out. When questioned about the book Claudette became rude and deleted questions and comments from her Facebook page. She is hostile and says apparently it is no ones business what she does with the proceeds of this book (when asked if the $$ was going to charity). My rating would be No stars on this.

I cannot believe how many people (I will not dignify them by calling them authors) have profited from this girls death. I feel very shamed that I bought the book that was written by the prosecutor in the case. If I had to do it over again I WOULD NOT BUY IT. I will sum up all the books in one sentence, Casey Anthony is monster #1 and Cindy Anthony is monster #2!

Isnt an editorial supposed to be by some one from an accredited organization in which people who may or may not buy this book based on your obviously biased opinion. At least try to change your name and initials from the editorial to the comment!

Boycott anything about this Tot Murdering Mom. No one should profit from the murder of this sweet little girl!!!! Barnes and Noble should be ashamed of themselves for carrying anything about this case!!!!
