I was given a copy of this book for my frank and honest review. When I read the description, I thought this sounds interesting. Well let me tell you this is one of the best and saddest books I've read. It is a well written account of the Todd family's fight to find out the truth behind their son's Todd's death in Singapore. It is a true story, which is what makes it sad. But honestly, it is one of the best detective stories too. It keeps you riveted, wanting to know the truth all the way through. ( )

What a sad story - absolutely chilling.

The family of Shane Todd, who died in mysterious circumstances in Singapore, outline their battle to prove that their son's death was not suicide, but murder. Despite convincing evidence, at every turn their efforts to prove this are blocked - it would seem that police departments and governments have something to hide and that international relations and commerce are more important to them than justice.

I received a copy directly from the publisher. I had heard about this case by watching 48 Hours covering the mysterious death of Dr. Shane Todd who was working abroad in Singapore. This book is written by his mother, Mary Todd and co-written by his cousins Christina Villegas. This is not easy material to read because it is a true story, I feel for his parents and all that they have endured. This book presents compelling evidence by showing Dr. Shane did not commit suicide as per the investigators who investigated his death in Singapore. There are too many inconsistencies that are validated by scientific data and the authors do a great job in proving them as false. The way evidence was handled and destroyed is sickening, I would think twice before seeking work in another country. I really hope that the truth will come out for this case and give his parents some kind of closure to let Dr. Shane Todd rest in peace. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"On June 24, 2012, Dr. Shane Truman Todd, a young American engineer, was found hanging in his Singapore apartment, just a week before his scheduled return to the United States. Although Shane had repeatedly expressed apprehension about his work with a Chinese company and fear his life was being threatened, authorities immediately ruled his death a suicide. His family initially didn't know what to believe. However, upon arriving in Singapore, they realized the evidence suggested not suicide, but murder."-- [p. 4] of cover.… (more)
