Hardback. One day after she'd been accosted and followed home by a bearded man in biker garb, blond, gentle 24yr. old Debbie Groseclose, the mother of two small children, is reported missing. Five days later, in a deserted parking lot near where she worked as a medical receptionist, Debbie's mutilated and decomposed body is found stuffed into the trunk of her car. Besieged by a rash of nurse murders, police in Memphis immediately suspect the stranger and begin a nationwide search. However, Debbie's mother, aunt and sister suspect someone much closer to home - Bill, Debbie's charming naval recruiter husband. When the police arrest two men, the accused call it a "murder for hire" and blame Bill. In court, the horrible truth comes out about Debbie's last day and the callous killers who without conscience condemned her for $200. Finally, the family goes home to heal. But the killers exploit every avenue of the law to gain their freedom and avoid the electric chair. For 20yrs, mother, aunt and sister fight to see justice done, only to find out in late 1996 that their nightmare has only begun. Illus. + Appendix. 340pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in f. dw.
