Description

Informationen zum Autor Michael Benson is the author or coauthor of fifty books, including the Pinnacle true-crime books---Betrayal in Blood and Hooked up for Murder and Lethal Embrace (with Rober Mladinich)--as well as Inside Secret Societies, Who's Who in the JFK Assassination, and Complete Idiot's Guides to NASA, National Security, The CIA, Submarines, and Modern China. His other works include presidential biographies and true crime books for young readers. Originally from Rochester, N.Y., Benson is a graduate of Hofstra University and now resides in Brooklyn. Klappentext An incisive, unflinching account of the shocking, summer 2007 Connecticut crime that is still making national headlines, "Murder in Connecticut" examines what happened to Dr. William Petit, his wife Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and their two daughters, Hayley and Michaela, in the early morning hours of July 23 in the quiet town of Cheshire--and how their community rallied bravely around the sole survivor of this vicious home invasion. Who was the Petit family? How were they marked for murder by their killers, Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes? How could these men have dreamed up such a crime? And will these horrifying murders--with startling similarities to the case in Truman Capote's classic "In Cold Blood"--really be the impetus behind sweeping parole reform laws that will not only affect Connecticut, but all of America?
