Publisher's Summary

On March 16, 1992, Elizabeth DeCaro, a 28 year-old mother of four, was found dead in her own home, murdered execution-style with two bullets to the head. Her husband, Rick, was immediately a suspect, having previously struck her "accidentally" with the family van after taking out a $100,000 life insurance policy on her. A Killer Among Us presents the true shocking story of Elizabeth's family and their search for justice against the man who continued to play father to the children whose mother he had killed.
This real-life case has fascinating legal elements - three trials, a death penalty conviction, and a dramatic reversal in federal court - and has received extensive local and national coverage.
Charles Bosworth Jr. is the author of the New York Times best sellers Previous Victims and Silent Witness.

I am not sure why, but true crime has a hold on me. I am constantly baffled by the events which take place within the pages of these stories. I want to understand how lives can spiral so far out of control, while the world moves on.

This book captivated me from the first. I had a hard time putting it down, so I did so only to sleep. As I listened to Kevin Pierce, I felt the the frustration, the agonizing helplessness of all the people who were swept up in this tragedy. Understood that there is never a "winning" side, even if justice is achieved.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes this type of book. It is cleverly written, and Kevin Pierce has an amazing way of telling the tale. Oddly, he has become one of my favorite narrators.

Well Written and a good listen!

What did you love best about A Killer Among Us?

I loved how both sides are somewhat written about. It should be titled Justice of Elizabeth.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Compelling I could not put this one down either. I felt irritated when the phone would ring or I had an appt. I just wanted to keep on listening, please do not interrupt.

Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I do not believe I have. But his performance is excellent in this read.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried with the family and felt their grief as though it were my own.

Any additional comments?

Written in the same great style as Ann Rule books. Worth the credit.
