Fans of psychology and true crime will thoroughly enjoy this book. Die My Love tells the story of how one woman’s obsession would lead to murder and the destruction of an entire family.

There’s no time to catch your breath in this latest true-crime page turner from Kathryn Casey. With her unique voice style, the author paints a vivid portrait of Piper Rountree…petite, beautiful, attorney and murderer? Although those closest to the family were painfully aware of Piper’s irrational, eradicate behavior, only her sister Tina truly understood the darkness that had enveloped her every thought.

Using her sister’s identification for plane tickets and hotel reservations, Piper flew from Texas to Virginia, where she gunned down her estranged husband in the driveway of his home, as their three children slept in their beds mere yards away. Despite the sister’s best efforts to concoct an air tight alibi and dispose of evidence, it was just a matter of time before justice came calling.

Extensive research takes the reader behind the well manicured facade that had been painstakingly constructed to protect the all important image Piper cultivated. With lyrical prose, Casey skillfully traces the Jablin-Rountree story – from their early days to Piper’s strange, irrational behavior, to the series of events that would lead to the destruction of an already flawed marriage. Weaving a complex narrative of a family who, lived in a beautiful home, surrounded by friends and family but lingered in the shadow of dysfunction, Casey reassembles their shattered lives in the years and months before Fred’s death, intimately describing what led this petite, educated, Texas lawyer to murder her ex-husband and the father of her children.

Filled with the most complete case facts available, Die My Love offers an unparalleled look at one of the most captivating murder cases in recent years told by one of the most prolific crime writers of our time! I recommend this book to all who enjoy true crime novels, as well as, thriller and mystery lovers! I anxiously await Kathryn Casey’s next novel!

 Happy Reading!

    Anne,
    Thank you for stopping by & for sharing your very insightful thoughts! It seems these days you can’t turn on the news or pick up a newspaper without scanning a story about a woman accused of a violent crime…it’s an alarming trend. I’m glad you enjoyed the book – Kathryn Casey is definitely one of the best within the true crime genre and I am looking forward to reading her work for many years to come.

    Very interesting read. It is quite incredible to see just how many women have descended into madness thus becoming extremely dangerous to the citizenry at large.
    Piper is only one troubling case, but because of K.C special writing skill, the reader’s passions are awakened. You learn from Kathryn’s books that something is not always nice and sweet and that women can be vicious, malevolent and deadly.
    Kathryn Casey is climbing to the top of the true crime genre. I have all her books to date.
