Description

On 1st December 1996, 25-year-old Lee Harvey was stabbed 42 times in a frenzied knife attack.

His girlfriend, Tracie Andrews, claimed he had been murdered in a road rage attack and, days later, appeared at a press conference making an emotional appeal for witnesses to the crime.

During the days following the attack, the horrific truth about what really happened that night became apparent; it was Tracie who had killed Lee and then tried to cover her tracks with a web of lies...Lee was a good-looking, happy young man with a bright future ahead of him.

Tracie Andrews appeared to be an attractive, lively blonde and, at first, their relationship seemed to be a happy one.

But soon, Tracie's true nature began to reveal itself and she became jealous, possessive and even violent.

Soon enough, the relationship became volatile and self-destructive.On that cold winter's night in 1996, Maureen Harvey heard the devastating news that every parent prays they will never have to hear - her child was dead. As events unfolded and the reality of what Tracie had done took hold, Maureen was forced to come to terms with the fact that the woman with whom she initially shared her grief was in fact the perpetrator of this horrific crime.

Tragic and heart-wrenching, this gripping account of a mother's tragic loss cannot fail to touch the emotions of any reader.

I remember watching Tracie Andrews on TV and thinking at the time that she had commited the attack. What a nasty woman. And how brave have been Lee's parents.

Some people think this is a page turner, well not to me. It was hard to read because of the way the mother wrote. her son was so good, and did nothing wrong and I do not believe that. Also she said she rather had it the way around. that he had murdered Tracey. Wondering if she would have been asking for the deaths sentence then. If she thinks that she should not hate Tracey's parents but of course she does. What annoyed me also was her negative attitude even towards people, her family that were helping them. it was too much, blablabla. She wanted peace.<br/>Another thing i noticed was that she let her daughter deal with a lot of the stuff while she ran away for it. Of course I feel for this mother, cause it is a moms worst nightmare, but if I'd known this book was written by a mother I would not have bought it. Too one sided.
