Publisher's Summary

Robert Peernock appeared to have the ideal life; working as a pyrotechnics engineer and computer expert and coming home to his wife and daughter, he projected the American dream. Even when he and his wife separated, it seemed amicable, just a small bump for the well-to-do family. But there was madness in his house: in private, Peernock was violent, subtly manipulative, and bordering on psychotic. But the horrifying details of his home life would only come to light after Peernock finally lost all control.
Peernock had come home, brutally beaten both his wife and daughter, force-fed them alcohol, and deliberately sent them to their deaths behind the wheel, staging it to look like a drunk driving accident. He didn't foresee that his daughter would survive, and even with years of abuse, her attempted murder, and horrendous injuries, he never anticipated that she would speak so powerfully against him.
Here, New York Times best-selling author Anthony Flacco chronicles the sensational trial and all the terror that preceded it, looking deep into the mind of a deranged killer whose American dream was a waking nightmare for those trapped within it.

The first part of the book details the crimes and the horror the murderer's daughter lived through. Then the author whisks us on a non-stop roller coaster ride wih police and lawyers fighting to get this man in prison. This author builds suspense so well I was glued to my Android until the end. No dry coutt ramblings....riveting.

The overall book was OK. He is a decent author, however my opinion is he is a terrible narrator. I would have preferred someone like Kevin Pearce being the narrator

99.9% of the time I "read" these types of books, this one wasn't one of my favorites. Not even in the top 10.

It was okay...it just felt like it lacked something. I kept having to rewind because I lost interest so many times.
