From the Back Cover
THE FIRST FULL-LENGTH, IN-DEPTH ACCOUNT OF THE CAYLEE ANTHONY CASE
When news broke of three-year-old Caylee Anthony's disappearance from her home in Florida in July 2008, there was a huge outpouring of sympathy across the nation. The search for Caylee made front-page headlines. But there was one huge question mark hanging over the case: the girl's mother.
• Why did Casey Anthony wait one full month before reporting her daughter missing?
• Why were searches on chloroform and missing children found on her computer?
• Why did she go out partying with friends less than one week after Caylee disappeared?
As the investigation continued and suspicions mounted, Casey became the prime suspect. In October, based on new evidence against Casey―her erratic behavior and lies, her car that showed signs of human decomposition―a grand jury indicted the young single mother. Then, two months later, police found Caylee's remains a quarter of a mile away from the Anthony home. Casey pled not guilty to charges of murder in the first degree, and she continues to protest her innocence. Did she or didn't she kill Caylee? This is the story of one of the most shocking, confusing, and horrific crimes in modern American history.
* With 8 pages of alarming photographs *

This book is well written, concise, and was not the "shill" that many worried it would be.
It paints the Anthonys in a most unflattering pattern, but how else would an author portray a household that not only raised a killer, but a bizzare, lying, scheming, and cold blooded killer, who premeditated each detail for months, in order to have her revenge upon her own mother, as well as her freedom to party and live a lifestyle free from responsibilities.
The author is unafraid to describe the behavior of the grandmother, Cindy Anthony, The author did not fall for the "search" for this poor child, as Cindy Anthony portrayed it to the media, but as a homicide, right from the start.
The author lets us know that Cindy Anthnoy knew of the murder from the moment her own suspicions were realized: when she smelled decomposition in the trunk of her sociopathic daughter.
George, hapless husband, has been portrayed as the bumbling, gambling, impotent, follower, afraid to cross Cindy, who chastised him about telling the truth to the Grand Jury and to the FBI, to the point of suicide.
Casey sits in prison, unvisited by a family she apparently despises. She knows the money they are raking in, and that they no longer have to work, and the fame (infamy) Cindy has garnished for herself. In her quest to hurt her mother, Casey killed her own child, and the irony is that Cindy now lives the lifestyle that Casey wanted: no job, no responsibilities, fame and fortune.
The book is a fast read, well constructed, and an excellent overview of one of America's strangest murder cases.
