Editorial Reviews

Review

“In the field of true crime you never know what you’ll get – a badly written clip job or thoughtful reportage that goes beyond the crime scene to the impact of crime on people and society.  This book lines up on the latter side. It was one of the best written and researched true crime books I’ve read in quite a while.” –Michael Connelly, Bestselling author

“[Morse] brings a journalist’s instincts to this moment-by-moment chronicle. He’s done impressive research, interviewing more than 150 people, poring over reams of transcripts and documentary records, and even wading through Norwood’s text messages — all 11,000 of them. The legwork pays off … Morse’s book asks all the right questions.”—Washington Post

“A true-crime tour de force, with all of the features that make a whodunit great: a suspenseful, intricately constructed plot; a taut prose style that wastes no words; memorable characters brought to vivid life in a few deft strokes; and of course a dogged murder investigation that leads to a stunning revelation. Readers will tear through the book—as I did—to learn the solution to the dark mystery at its core.”—Harold Schechter, author of Psycho USA: Famous American Killers You Never Heard of and The Mad Sculptor: The Maniac, the Model, and the Murder that Shook a Nation

“Dan Morse has written a true-crime thriller that reads like a rip-snorting novel. With a storyteller's flare for the cinematic and a keen eye for detail he has honed as a crime reporter, Morse unveils the fast-paced investigation into a killing that captured the nation's attention. The murder was as brutal as its setting was unexpected: behind the closed doors of a hip retailer in the wealthiest and safest of suburbs.”—Del Quentin Wilber, bestselling author of Rawhide Down, the Near Assassination of Ronald Reagan

“With its riveting narrative and precise, unflinching rendering of a murder that isn't what it seems, Dan Morse's The Yoga Store Murder rises to the level of the finest crime novels. Except that it's all true.”—Bryan Gruley, Edgar-nominated author of the Starvation Lake trilogy

“Cerebral and thoroughly frightening, The Yoga Store Murder takes the reader on a moment-by-moment hunt with a group of wily detectives as they sort through a tangle of lies and bloody sneaker prints. It will keep you up way past your bedtime.”—Michael E. Ruane, coauthor of Sniper: Inside the Hunt for the Killers who Terrorized the Nation

An addictive read. Morse provides a stunning view deep inside the lives of the detectives, the victim and the accused murderer in this gripping and exciting book.”—Greg Jaffe, Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter and co-author of The Fourth Star: Four Generals and the Epic Struggle for the Future of the United States Army

I read a lot of true crime and I think this is an excellent book. There is so much badly written stuff by hacks it is a pleasure to find something so intelligent and well-written. It is the best true crime I've read this year, by far.
This book is gripping and suspenseful--could not put it down, and I knew a lot about the case.
The author must have had good access to police files and interviews. he is very focused on the investigation and the interrogations, providing a lot of details I did not know. How they focused on the suspect and how they pursued her is riveting!
This book is a character study of a psychopath I found very convincing (not that I needed to be.)
I appreciate how the author dealt with the actual murder. It conveys the full horror of the crime without any sense of exploitation or titillation. It is horrific, but it did happen and the story needs to be told. You are left with a strong sense of her life and what her family has been through. Tragic and horrifying.
This is how true crime should be written.

This is one of the better new TC finds of late. One of the strangest crimes and criminals I have read about in a long time. I think women will be especially interested in this story because of the setting in lululemon athletica. As other reviewers have written, you will want to read it in one or two sittings. It moves along with a great deal of suspense as Jayna goes back into the yoga store with Brittany after close. This is such a sad case but the author did a wonderful and sensitive job with reporting it. Highly recommended.

I was captivated from the very first page. If I didn't know this horrific murder actually happened I would think I was reading a quality crime thriller - more proof that truth is stranger than fiction. The author clearly spent a lot of time researching and understanding the details around the crime and the people involved and impacted.

I read about the murder when it happened (DC area native) but this book has great details about the detective work but you also get to know about the two families affected by this horrible crime.

This is an excellent, well-written examination of a horrific crime. Like many DC-area residents, I closely followed this case from the beginning. Dan Morse clearly has done his homework.

I try and read a lot of books a year, ideally between 60-100 and, sadly, not many of them stay with me. Part of it is because I have a crappy memory, part of it is because a lot of them aren't that good.

I say all that because I don't think I'll ever forget this one. It was so skillfully written, and told the story so compassionately but objectively, that I grew more and more impressed as I read it. I can't imagine what it took to write, or how deep the author must have gone. But his work is the highest tribute there can be to the men, women and families involved with this case, and to all those similarly affected by homicides.

This is one of the better true crime novels I have read. The author did not follow the normal "formula" of most other writers. It was an account of the crime written by a true investigative journalist, not just a story teller. Unlike a lot of true crime writers, he did not rely heavily on court transcripts. I found I did not skip any parts of the book, and couldn't put it down until I finished. The author is a journalist and is part of that local community. He was present at the crime scene from the beginning, following the case and trial to the end. He studied numerous documents and conducted interviews, then presented them in a clear and concise way. I will look forward to any other cases he writes about.

A great job of both reporting and storytelling. This was an absolutely horrible event but a thoughtful telling and analysis of it was important to do. Mr Morse did that in a completely engaging way. Couldn't put it down.
