Laura Jean Ackerson was murdered and dismembered in 2011. She was the mother of Grant Hayes' sons and he wanted her completely out of the picture. Apparently, his wife Amanda Hayes, wanted the same. So they made it happen, and tried to make it look like they had nothing to do with it. They had made life extremely difficult in the past years, so of course, they made this new plan difficult, and extremely heinous as well. This book was well-written and well researched. I felt it was balanced between all of the focuses, but never lost sight of the actual victim, Laura Jean Ackerson. I enjoyed this book and recommend it to all who read true crime. ( )
