Book Description

From the moment 2-year-old Caylee Anthony of Orlando was reported missing by her grandmother in July 2008 till the shocking acquittal of her mother, Casey, on murder charges in July 2011, the story of the Anthony family tragedy has been a national sensation. This new book from the editors of PEOPLE magazine weaves the tale from beginning to end, taking the reader behind the scenes of the family’s turmoil, Casey’s web of lies and her father’s breakdown, offering portraits of the victorious defense lawyers and the thwarted prosecution, the public outrage and the media frenzy—all based on PEOPLE 's unparalleled access at key moments of the case. Author Steve Helling, a Florida-based staff writer for PEOPLE, covered the story from its beginning. Just days after little Caylee was reported missing, Helling spent time with the Anthony family inside their home, beginning an odyssey that would take him through the entire case's twists and turns. He sat through hours of court hearings, pored over thousands of pages of documents and interviewed both the prosecutors and the defense team exclusively for this book. All told, Helling conducted more than 200 interviews with people closely connected to the investigation of Caylee’s disappearance and Casey’s 2011 trial for her murder. His daily reports from the courtroom produced more than 100 stories about the case for PEOPLE magazine and With his deep knowledge of the Anthony saga, Helling offers riveting insights into all the players in one of the most controversial and unforgettable true-crime dramas of our time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing September 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Factually inaccurate. Lots of time and space wasted rehashing statements, etc. most of us have already heard and read a zillion times. Nothing new here except an inconsequential comment or two by Nancy Grace and Yuri Melich towards the end. So much left out. If I'd had the book in hand and been able to flip through it, I never would have bought it. -- Interesting how this just happened to be released the same day as the Dr. Phil interviews.

A brief summary of what has been previously published. No depth, noting new. I was really hoping for much more. Not worth the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect information! September 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have only read a few pages of the book and have already found several things that I know to be incorrect. The author states that Cindy came from a good family. If that means a family with money, he is incorrect. He also states that Casey eventually graduated from high school. My understanding was that she never completed the 1/2 a credit that she was shy and never graduated. I was hoping to get some truth, but it seems like the author is just making things up as he goes along. I would not recommend this book. It's not good.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This trash was nothing more then an almost verbatim of the book Diane Fanning wrote before the trial, with a few pages of what happened during the trial. Don't waste your money, nothing new here!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New Here September 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Save your money. Just a rehash. I won't buy it because I won't chance anyone making a buck on this. However, a friend sprung for it and said it was just like watching a rerun. Good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Caylee is not an income generator! September 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The ebook is supposedly a compilation of stories that were previously published in People magazine. Why would anyone want to buy it since everything in it has already been printed?? Isn't that a waste of money? Or does People need more income? Oh, that's right. Writers, publishers, magazines, 'experts' all have the attitude that Caylee Anthony was murdered for their benefit so that they can make a buck. That is just down right pitiful. Caylee is not an income generator for anyone and people, including People magazine, who seek to earn money from her murder are reprehensible. Caylee Anthony was murdered by her mother and Caylee's so-called 'family' has done nothing but lie and obstruct justice all along the way. As for Helling's 'riveting insights' into the 'players' in this 'controversial and unforgettable' case, I've heard it all before. There is nothing in this ebook that would benefit anyone, except the editors of People magazine and Steve Helling.

1.0 out of 5 stars LAME December 21, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is hardly a book....its the smallest paperback I've ever seen. It's only about 1/4 inch thick. Charging $8 for this is a rip off.

Worst book ever! Don't waste your money on this garbage. Author doesn't even know what kind of car she drove! Average trial watchers have more facts than this author does.

The book did not seem to finish, it skipped around quite a bit and left a lot of facts out of the case.

This book gathers the facts of this story and presents them all in an easy to understand fashion. If you watched this story unfold on TV and were angry, you will get angry again.

It's appalling to me that there are people out there continually trying to earn money on the back of a murdered child. Caylee is not an income generator for everyone who thinks that they know the 'true' story. We will never know the whole story of what happened to Caylee. Her mother murdered her... Read More

Crime writing / Not Blood Money
Of course you're absolutely right (see my comment in another discussion.) Ann Rule is a great example of a legitimate writer who makes money writing about crime & its victims. I think legitimate short-term outrage is outweighing rational thought at this point. If ,5 years from now, a book came... Read More
