Truly a wonderful book, it held my interest from page one to the end. You felt for Kathleen's family and their determination to find the killer. The book was well written and I am looking forward to reading more of Irence Pence's books.

Bill ALMOST got away with murder. One of the reviews of this book (May 14, 2002) is OBVIOUSLY posted by one of Bill's family members or, perhaps, his SECOND ex-wife. Kathleen's family DID NOT abandon her children since the arrest of their father -- they hired an investigator and SOLVED the murder of their mother for them -- Bill's family profited from Kathleen's death -- a place to live, a luxury boat and then they allowed the kids to live with them while living on the kids' social security income. Kathleen's family spent about $60,000 for the sake of the children -- let's ask Bill's family what they spent FOR THE KIDS! Kathleen's children didn't even have enough money to go to college when they could have had nearly $500,000 between the two of them. Why? Bill's family spent it on themselves! Greedy -- just like their son!!!! The story doesn't "belong" to anyone -- BUT the public DOES deserve to see what kind of monsters are walking among them. I hope that Bill continues to serve in jail for his RAPE, SODOMY AND STRANGULATION DEATH OF HIS OWN CHILDREN'S MOTHER. Talk about a Monster!!!! The thought of a movie probably sickens you because you would hate to see yourself protraying in such a negative light -- read the other reviews and get a heart! You don't have to like the style of the book or even the writer, but leave Kathleen and her family alone -- they've lost enough.

I could not put this book down. It was really good. I work as a PI and was glad to see the hard work the Investigators put into this case to bring Lipscomb to justice. It was a very tragic story I feel so bad for the children.
I like the way the author does not just focus on the trial thru the whole book. So many truecrime authors will just focus on the trial,which I find very boring. This book gives you a real inside look at a sister and mothers fight for justice.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a member of Kathleen's family, I found the story to be extremely accurate as to what i've been told by other members of my family. Readers who read the book may think that our family seems to have abandoned Kathleen's children, but that is not the case at all. There are other details that are not revealed in the book, seeing as they are personal issues. Irene Pence defenately did justice to the death of cousin Kathleen.

I was one of Bill Lipscomb's students at the MTI school just before the murder. Irene Pence did a great job changing the names to protect the innocent... but I knew or knew of just about every one of the folks involved. I could not put the book down! I ran into Bill while he was preparing to move back to VA on his 'humanitarian reassignment'... and expressed my condolences. What a manipulator he was!!! Was glad to see he was finally brought to justice. Only wish more had been punished in the WAPS test scandal. Great book!!!

Anyone who is so grotesquely repulsed by a book of this nature should maybe think twice before reading it. It obviously caught their attention for the simple fact that they read the book. I on the other hand found it a fascinating read!!

Irene Pence shows us one family's struggle to bring a killer to justice when the sheriff's office botches the investigation. I was put right in the middle of the family's desperation and determination. Clearly the author has done her homework. The riveting details throughout the book could only come from the parties involved: the victim's family, the investigators and the murderer himself. The story held me spellbound. I couldn't put the book down until I discovered how the charismatic Bill Lipscomb with his distinguished military career had slipped up and was caught.
