New York: ReganBooks, 2005. First Edition. First Printing. 213, color illus. The author was given up for adoption in childhood, reestablished contact with her biological family--only to discover that her newfound brother was a killer. Soon after her birth in 1965, Anne was given up for adoption by her mother, Jackie Latham. Welcomed into the well-adjusted Grady family, she lived a happy life. Then, in the late 1990's, she came back into contact with her mother, now Jackie Peterson, and her family--including Jackie's son Scott Peterson and his wife, Laci. Anne was welcomedinto the family, and over the next several years she grew close to Scott and especially Laci. Anne and Laci became pregnant at roughly the same time, and the two became confidantes. Then, on Christmas Eve 2002, Laci Peterson went missing--and the happy facade of the Peterson family slowly began to crumble. Anne rushed to the family's aid, helping in the search for Laci, even allowing Scott to stay in her home while police tried to find his wife. Yet Scott's behavior grew increasingly bizarre during the search, and Anne grew suspicious that her brother knew more than he was telling, finally becoming convinced that her brother Scott Peterson had murdered his wife and unborn child in cold blood. Condition: very good, very good.
