Publisher's Summary

Murder In The Yoga Store is the true story of the brutal killing of a beautiful young woman at a chic Lululemon yoga-wear shop. The grisly murder was committed on a pleasant Friday night in upscale Bethesda, Maryland, a leafy suburb of Washington, D.C. In this riveting narrative by veteran journalist Peter Ross Range, the author for the first time brings together the tale of what really happened in the yoga store murder. He portrays the personalities of both victim and murderer, along with the strange and convoluted circumstances of the crime and its cover-up. Range meticulously exposes layer upon layer of deceit and confusion. His account builds the tension of the police investigation until the real story, so odd and creepy, takes your breath away. The drama of the murder trial is a moving emotional roller coaster built around the prosecutors, the detectives and the family of the victim.

A former White House correspondent for U.S. News & World Report and foreign correspondent for Time, Range has covered politics, international affairs and war.

Straightforward, and, in the end, unnecessary.

Not sure why I decided to listen to this - I'm too susceptible to late night Daily Deal emails. This is a more-or-less straightforward telling of the investigation of a horrific crime. It's a strange length - not long enough to be really detailed about anything, and with no deep investigation or analysis beyond what one could garner from some quick web-browsing. The additional detail that IS there is kind of strange - long and stereotyped descriptions of Bathesda, of Apple as a soulless hawker of "baubles" (though one can later understand why someone might might misplace some anger towards Apple), and other such generalities. But where there seems to be opportunity to explore the personalities involved more deeply, we get very little. So... if you really want to hear about this crime, and haven't read anything else (even brief news reports) about it, it's OK to listen to while running or washing the dishes. But five minutes on the web will get you at least as much satisfaction and sense of what happened.

Short and not even remotely sweet

While the narration was a bit grating, this true story about an almost fictitiously horrific crime was gripping. I had to listen all the way through, start to finish, just to find out how it all ended.
