In Creekstone, Texas, a small, quiet suburb of Houston, football was king . . . and David Temple was a prince. A former high school and college gridiron star-turned-coach, he had a fairy-tale marriage to bright, vivacious Belinda Lucas, a teacher at the local high school who was so warm and popular her colleagues called her 'The Sunshine Girl.'The fairy tale ended savagely on January 11, 1999, when Belinda's lifeless body was discovered in a closet. Her skull had been shattered by a shotgun blast at close range. She was eight months pregnant.There was no damning evidence directly linking the brutal murder to husband David, who stood by emotionless and dry-eyed as police searched the crime scene. But a dogged eight-year investigation would expose a shocking history of cruelty and domination, infidelity and rage-ultimately resulting in an epic courtroom battle for the ages-as the scandalous truth was revealed about love betrayed and innocent lives . . . shattered.

I got really caught up in this book. Good story telling of a sad situation! The narrator did a very good job, I never felt like I had to listen over again to see who was talking. I recommend this book.

Very sad story! Unfortunately, I think theses kind of controlling relationships are way too common. Belinda sounded like a wonderful person and it’s a shame she wasn’t able to experience life and so many others were robbed of knowing her. David is an extreme example of way too many athletes that think the world revolves around them and rules don’t apply! Glad he finally got what he deserved.

Very sad story and a must listen! I enjoyed the book, but feel some details were left out. The narrator was a bit annoying at times sounding nasally like she had a cold, but not so bad that it stopped me from listening to the story.
