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.

This could have been much better.

The way this story is told is not to my likings and not a normal true crime typical narrative. It's almost told as a story, the author putting his own creative writing in the events. Events of the true story become a bit fictional almost, I wasn't sure I was reading a true crime at times.

The author isn't awful as a narrator, but I felt he was reading as if his audience was under 16, if not younger.

PS. my dominate true crime authors are, Olsen, Rule.

- Carol "Love books, listen to 3-4 books a week, thriller and true crimes favorite."


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.
