Veteran news reporter Robyn Walensky reports her firsthand observations in vivid detail directly from the courtroom in Orlando, Florida as we are introduced to the various players: the judge, the jurors, the Anthony family, and later to Anthony's jailhouse "friends." They all disclose a side of Anthony from their own unique perspective.
Walensky's spellbinding, insightful observations of Anthony's narcissistic nature are woven throughout the book. Each chapter centers on a unique piece of the investigation, evidence, trial or post trial events. The book begins with unsettling details of the evidence along with details of the technical processes developed and employed to reveal the truth. Each chapter unfolds through quotes from investigators, technicians, lawyers, witnesses to behavior and reporters.
In the short chapter about her attorney, Jose Baez, Walensky notes that Anthony is communicating to him in a way that only a woman in a "real or imagined" relationship would do. This is in the same vein as her cluttered, misdirected and cavalier perception of the world which is evident in her actions before, during and after her crimes. The portrayal of her animated behavior in this chapter, titled "Her Knight in Shining Armor," seems to serve as a lens for her vision of life's most crucial relationships. This includes her baby daughter she shows little emotion towards throughout her life and in the aftermath of her death.Read more ›
