Hardback. On the surface, Christa Worthington's life had the appearance of privilege and comfort. She was a descendant of prominent New Yorkers. Her sparkling journalism earned the fashion world's respect. But she had turned her back on a glamorous career and begun living in the remote Cape Cod town where she had summered as a child. When she was found murdered in Truro, Massachusetts, just after New Year's Day in 2002, her toddler daughter clinging to her side, her violent death brought to the surface the many unspoken mysteries of her life. This is the deeply felt story of a career woman's attempt to start over and reinvent her life away from the fashion circles of New York and Paris, only to have an out-of-wedlock child with a local fisherman, forge a life as a single mother, and meet a violent end. The author portrays Christa's hunger for belonging and her struggle for survival as a first-time mother, and searingly evokes her search for a safe haven, her many tumultuous relationships, and the evidence linking family, strangers, lovers, suspects and innocents to the tragedy that both shocked a seaside town on Cape Cod and horrified the nation. The author intricately maps Christa's charged life before her death and follows the first year of the murder investigation with the help of the district attorney who is in an election battle even as he searches for the killer. An edgy and compelling portrait of a woman's tragic journey. With Epilogue and References. 406pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw.
