Publisher's Summary

Dixie Shanahan had a terribly troubled and abusive marriage in the sleepy little town of Defiance, Iowa. Then one summer day in 2002, Dixie's mean and wicked husband was gone. Some of the local residents presumed that Scott packed his bags and left town. But others were skeptical. After all, Scott's brown Ford pick-up truck was still parked in his driveway. The disappearance mystified Defiance for more than a year. Then in late October, 2003, the truth emerged - or did it?
"This fascinating story will leave you asking yourself one question, was the punishment that Dixie received in her case justified? Highly recommended for all true crime readers." (RJ Parker, best-selling true crime author)

Hard to Follow

What would have made Dixie's Last Stand better?

It would have been nice to have some background info on Dixie and Scott before going into
there marriage.

Has Dixie's Last Stand turned you off from other books in this genre?


What three words best describe Dave Wright’s performance?

He has a great voice. Need work on his female voice or best not to try accents.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really

Any additional comments?

This book was just boring. It needed something to get your attention from the start and keep it. Also the little alarms when starting a new chapter could just be one small ding.

Could have been SO much better!

First, while the narrator had a pleasant voice, his "redneck" accents were terrible and ruined the dialog he was saying.

Second, the electronic sounding alert songs at chapter, subject, or dramatic pauses was NOT a good choice. Just plain annoying.

Third, this is actually an interesting story, or would have been. It felt like no research at all had been put into discovering the main characters backstory. Or if it was, it was pretty much left out. This is a very short book, it would have been fine to add more/some backstory in without making it too long.

Fourth, in general I don't know if I learned anymore than what could easily have been detained in court transcripts or newspaper articles. This story lacked the depth it could have had. Felt like a summary, not an informative in depth look into the crime.

I don't mean add more gory details, more information. And telling us the police and medical examiner were grossed out was just immature sounding. The way it was done made them sound like kids, not professionals doing a horrible job.
