Murder In The Family (English Edition) Kindle版
Barer wrote, produced, and often voiced, national radio and television spots for such performing artists as Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, Billy Joel, Carly Simon, Eric Clapton, Moody Blues, Fleetwood Mac, Liza Minelli, Temptations, Four Tops, and many more. Barer also created and produced national radio and/or television campaigns for Warner/Electra/Atlantic, Media One, Management III, and Seattle Pacific Industries. Other national/regional clients have included Penzoil, Safeway, Superlube, Black Angus Restaurants, the Aladdin Theater for the Performing Arts, and the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas.
While Barer contributed his media savvy to numerous publications and projects over the years, it was his internationally acclaimed 442 page critical/biographical study of Leslie Charteris' enduringly different Robin Hood of Modern Crime, Simon Templar, which earned him the highest honor from the Mystery Writers of America -- The 1994 Edgar Allen Poe Award. The Saint: A Complete History in Print, Radio, Television, and Film not only received the Edgar, but also an Anthony Award nomination from the World Mystery Convention.
Contracted by the estate of Leslie Charteris to pen a minimum of three new novels in the popular Saint series, Barer completed Capture the Saint, the first original Saint novel in thirteen years. Film rights to the previous 52 Saint books were acquired by producer Robert Evans. Paramount Pictures released the Saint, starring Val Kilmer, in 1997. Barer's novelization of the film's screenplay, THE SAINT, published by Simon and Schuster Pocketbooks, has sold over 100,000 copies in English, and has been translated into French, Japanese, Hebrew, Chinese, and German.
At the request of Warner Brothers, Barer accompanied Mel Gibson, James Garner, and Jodie Foster on the set of the hit film Maverick, writing the colorful companion book to that rollicking, uproarious western. Man Overboard: The Counterfeit Resurrection of Phil Champagne (1995), a wry and humorous genre-bending true crime adventure earned a nomination for the coveted Anthony Award by the World Mystery Convention as Best True Crime Book of the Year.

I found the book worthy of five stars. I did not know the story so this made it even more interesting. I have no hesitation in recommending this book but beware that you will be shocked and outraged at this person’s acts and his deluded belief that he is above the law and able to escape the consequences of his extreme behaviour.
This was my first book by this author, and I will be reading my way through all of his books as I very much enjoy his writing style. He gives enough detail of the crime to allow readers to understand the gravity of what occurred, he then follows along with the catching of the presumed guilty party, as well as a good look at their life, both as a child, and as they mature to give a good overview of everything. Then of course the trial, and this was written at least a 1/3 of the book I’d say. I happen to like books spaced out like this, so for me it’s perfect, of course not all his books may be like this one, time will tell ..
I’ll end my feedback with my thoughts combined with a quote from the book...
The term Predator absolutely sums up Kirby Anthoney . . . A tragic combination of defective nature and perverted nurture created a monster.
They gave detailed accounts of not only how the murderer was captured, but the whole process including how the authorities have changed and improved up to the crime.
The story was written in a way that was very interesting and tho it could have been very confusing.. They simplified it for the reader to understand.
This was a horrendous crime and hard to fathom how an other person could do this, not only to one being but three! Two of which were very young children.
I enjoyed this book and recommend it to those of you who are true crime buffs!
Thank you for the opportunity to read a great book!
