Sadly all of the above is probably true.
UPDATE: My two stars has become one star. I have finished the book, and I am recommending that you skip this one. The writing is what I would expect from a lazy middle-schooler. The errors throughout are an insult to readers. The price for this book is criminal. Ten bucks for drivel. Glad I didn't pay for it (thanks, Kindle Unlimited). Don't reward such poor writing by buying this book. You surely won't give a hoot about the people in it unless you're related to them.
After my first review, the author responded and apologized for the errors. She should have apologized for the whole book. I find it hard to believe she is an "international bestselling author". Sorry for being harsh, but a published author should have more respect for the art of writing, and for the people that buy their books. Invest in an editor. Please.
1. Poorly written. Wrought with poor grammar, incorrect punctuation, misspellings, etc. Any PROFESSIONAL author would hire an editor to review and revise to make it into a professional product. I guess the authors' own PROFIT outweighed any quest for professionalism.
2. Only partly factual and a large part fiction. This claims to be a true story, and yet, in just the first 5 chapters that you can read in the excerpt above, I found MANY inaccuracies (and I am in a position to know, having grown up in Whitewater; having an intimate connection to the family; and having vast personal knowledge of the crime). How could these authors POSSIBLY know what Kathy and her father's conversation was in their living room earlier on the night Kathy was killed when both of them are gone and neither could have told the authors what the conversation was? Too many liberties taken!
3. I have not finished the whole book yet, so I don't know how the authors attempt to make a link between Kathy's murder and the city of Whitewater allegedly being haunted by witches, but I can tell you as a person with intimate and personal knowledge of the crime that Kathy's murder had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with witchcraft. But, anything to sell a book and make some money, right authors?
and MOST IMPORTANTLY ...
4. I think it is absolutely REPREHENSIBLE, DISGUSTING AND GREEDY of these 3 women to seek to profit from this poor family's horrendous tragedy, especially without their input or authorization to write this book (which I personally know for a FACT they did not have). To: 1) open this wound again for that poor family; 2) portray Kathy in such a poor light based on "rumors" by others and without her being able to present her side of the story; 3) use a "legend" (of witches & hauntings) as a justification to make this very private matter public (I know it is PARTIALLY based on public records, but that is a moot point - most people would not go get those records to read); and 4) to PROFIT from someone else's tragedy is absolutely DESPICABLE!!!
These 3 authors/women should be ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!!! They all live in a town just a few miles from where some of Kathy's family still live. Have you women (the "authors") have NO humanity or humility at all??? SHAME ON YOU!!!
The main body of the story is about the investigation that followed, the leads, the interviews, the suspects, the forensic evidence.
If I had proofread this book, I would have made 82 corrections.
