A Spotlight from The 131 Preview Review
Description:‘ROAD RAGE’ is what all the news shows and newspaper’s called it. To me, that sounded like a disease, an affliction that can make you kill. A sorry excuse to take the claw end of a hammer and pound it repeatedly into the skull of another human being.
In April of 1999, my younger brother, David, passed away. Doesn't passed away sound so gentle, even normal? David’s death was neither, it was brutal murder.
This book is the true story of the random murder of my brother. The youngest of five. I am the oldest. We were the book ends.
You will meet and fall in love with David, the victim. He was a handsome soft spoken gentle giant with a great musical talent. He was also a husband and Daddy.
The reader will agonize with the family as they spend seventy-two-hours in the intensive care unit watching Dave slip away. They prayed for miracles and discussed organ donation while still trying to figure out exactly what happened that night.
The family will take you along on their frustrating journey navigating the justice system and learning to deal with the media.
You will become infuriated with the judge, the evil skirt and sneaker wearing district attorney who was only interested in winning an election, the defense lawyers and the murderer’s families lack of empathy or compassion.
The reader will agonize with the author as she struggles to share her story of grief, depression and defeat.
A painfully gripping, honest detail that will leave readers inspired to hug everyone they love and sadly; forever looking in the rear view mirror.
