About this title


Beyond the grisly details of a case that horrified and galvanized a community previously innocent of senseless violence, Sanders renders in a gripping narrative the investigative, legal, and emotional processes that were spurred by this crime--the first murder in the little town's long history.

From Library Journal:

In April 1987 tiny Granite, Oklahoma, was still a town of open people and open doors. Then, on a blustery night, the realities of the modern world crept through one of those unlocked doors, and a respected ex-schoolteacher was raped and murdered in her bed. This is the story of the investigation into the killing of 73-year-old Esther Steele, the apprehension of two suspects, and the trial of one of them. It is also a tale of dubious justice as, seven years after the crime, the question of which of the pair actually killed Steele remains unanswered. It is, finally, the story of a town's loss of innocence, of the further passing of a kinder, gentler way of life. The telling is competently, if not compellingly, done. Recommended for larger true crime collections.
