Read Fuhrman's book and you'll realize that something went wrong here.

This report appeared in Michael Schiavo's book and is the official and legal refutation of Fuhrman, proving that he did not physically abuse his wife.

Format: Hardcover
To paraphrase this book's author, "This case isn't about the right to die peacefully, or about euthanasia." Retired detective Fuhrman takes the position that this case is about a man wanting to free himself from a marriage, and doing so at any cost as long as someone else is making payment.

I have two criticisms of Mr. Fuhrman's work. First, it should not have been written before the autopsy results for Terri Schiavo became available. They would, I believe, have altered some of his assumptions and therefore some of his conclusions. Second, he repeats material not once but several times; not for emphasis, but (in my opinion) to extend the word count sufficiently to make it book length, and publishable as such. With those things said, though, I found myself thinking about the Schiavo tragedy from different angles than before I read Mr. Fuhrman's book. Like a good detective, he accepts nothing at face value; and his understanding of human nature, at its best as well as at its worst, illuminates much that never made sense to me before.

Worth reading, although the repetition makes even this sad yet riveting story bog down at times.

I always go in with a open mind, I too followed the story of Terri Schiavo and was leaning alot towards Michael Schiavo but after reading the book and putting 1+1=2 together I have my own personal views on the way she died. Mark Furhman gave a clear written view of the book explaining each and every point from the start of the book to the end. I thank him for writing the book at a laymen's level for all to read. I do give this book five stars and look forward to a follow up when they give a full report of her autopsy. Mark Fuhrman was an experienced detective long before he became a writer. Many authors have little or no law enforcement training. Mark Fuhrman is an author who tells it like it is, and has brought the life of Terri Schiavo for all to see and understand what Terri and her family have gone through. I will continue to read any book written by Mark Fuhrman.

Format: Hardcover
I've read previous books by Fuhrman and for the most part have been impressed. Because of that and the promise on the dust cover to answer questions such as what was Terri and Michael Schiavo's marriage really like, what happened the day Terri collapsed, what will the autopsy say, and so on, I bought the book. After this, I doubt that I will ever buy another book by Furhman again.

This book offered no insight into the person that Terri was, nor her marriage with Michael. It answered no questions whatsoever, nor did it provide any insight into any of the key people involved in this story. The first 100 pages are a quasi technical write-up on various medical issues, some known to not even be associated with Terri's condition such as asphyxia and heart attacks. It's just verbiage to fill up the space.

Any major event in the story is repeated at least once, sometimes more often. This is another method to fill up space to try to cover the fact that there's nothing substantial in this book. This book really doesn't offer anything except Furhrman's speculations (six of them to be exact).

Furhman gets to the point of the book on page 223 (out of a total of 226 pages) when he says "Only Michael Schiavo knows the answer to these questions." Save your money, I just told you the bottom line of the book. That is really all he has to offer.

A lot of people are upset that Mr. Furhman wrote this book. I am glad. There are details in this book and in Mr. Gibbs book (Fighting for Dear Life) that did not come out in the press at the time that Michael was pushing for his first wife to be killed so he could marry his second wife. (Question: The honorable thing for Michael to do, if he wanted to move on with his life, would have been to divorce Terri. Why didn't he do this? It's fishy. All of his behavior was fishy.)

Based on the facts in these two books, I believe Terri was murdered. By her husband. In the bedroom. Though Mr. Furhman does not mention the possibility, I believe that she was murdered by someone giving her a large dose of diabetic medicine or insulin for diabetes. She was not a diabetic. A large dose of insulin would have caused Terri to develop severe hypoglycemia and go into a fatal diabetic coma. She was resuscitated the EMTs but suffered permanent brain damage but not brain death. Reliable descriptions of her before she was starved to death by her husband suggest she had the mental capabilities of a baby between the ages of 4 months to 8 months. Since Terri and her family, the Schindlers, were devout Catholics, she and they would never have chosen cremation. Catholics, especially devout Catholics, do not believe in cremation. I believe her husband chose cremation and has hidden the location of the ashes so that no additional analysis of her body could not take place later when future scientific advances might be able to identify the true cause of her collapse. There is no statute of limitations on murder.

Do not accuse me of being a wacko Catholic or wacko Christian. I am an atheist/agnostic. I am a humanist.
