Fatal Vows: 11/21/08
Thirteen months ago Stacy Peterson vanished from her home in the Chicago suburbs. She left behind her husband and children. Stacy's disappearance ultimately lead to the reopening of the investigation into the death of Drew Peterson's second wife, Kathleen. Fatal Vows by Joseph Hosey of the Chicago's Herald News sums up the circumstances of the investigations.
Fatal Vows is well written and easy to read. If you are interested in this particular case or enjoy true crime, you'll enjoy this book. Personally, I found the timing of the book distasteful especially since the Stacy Peterson investigation is still on going.
On a side note, the mysterious death of Kathleen Savio in 2004 reminds me of a CSI episode: "Last Laugh" i (April 2003) in which a woman's accidental death in a bathtub is later discovered to have been a murder. When I was reading the book I thought the show had used the case as a starting point. Now though on comparing dates, I see that's not possible. It's just an interesting coincidence.
Having now read two true crime books in close succession, I'm ready for a break.
