    This is the 2nd book I have read by this renowned prosecutor the first one being Precious Victims which was brilliant This was another rich procedural true life crime drama This case was very complicated but the professionals never gave up on bringing it to a conclusion The book brings us from the crime and right through the many investigations Weber writes his true crime like a novel and as he is at the heart of the action, the book is rich with detail He knows the family well and all the investigators so you never lose sight that this is a true story.

    Silent Witness is written by DA Don Weber who prosecuted in the Karla Brown trial.In 1978 Karla Brown body was found dead face down in a 10 gallon drum of water in the basement of her home Some experts say she was strangled but others maintain she died of drowning Police at the time suspected John Prantee who was friends with Karla s next door neighbour but no evidence was found It was not until 1983 that Karlas s body was exhumed and a bitemark was found Experts matched the bitemark to Prante s teeth During the trial Weber found an ex girlfriend who claimed Prante bit her shoulder, on the basis of this evidence Prante was sentenced to 75 years in prison.This year John Prante is eligible for parole in 2019 but still maintains he is innocent In the light of DNA testing John s lawyers are asking for the evidence to be tested again The most interesting part of this book was when the police contacted an FBI profiler who advised them on the best way to get the killer to confess.I enjoyed this book but it was definitely a bit to detailed Excellent narrating as always by Kevin Pierce.

    Sad story of two sickos who killed a harmless woman, apparently just for something to do It was good to read about how they were finally caught and prosecuted.

    It is amazing how computers were advanced enough in 1980 to solve this case Thank goodness it was advanced enough so everyone only had to wait for 2 years to be solved and one for a conviction.

    This book had all the makings of a 5 star book Why wasn t it Because Don Weber and Charles Bosworth spent as much time dwelling on the brilliance of Mr Weber as they did on the actual case When you re reading this book you get the idea that the justice system, nay, the entire judicial branch might collapse if this brilliant man wasn t there to shoulder the weight of seeing justice done It was an embarrassing display of ego stroking that would have caused most people to blush again and again if it were written about them Carla Brown, her family, her fiance, her friends deserved a memoir devoted to her They deserved this book to be a testament to her Instead it was like watching the peacocks at the zoo with their plumage fully displayed and vibrating to show the strength they want others to perceive about them I have purchased other books that were co authored by these two individuals I guess I hadn t noticed this need to display Weber so much then It made me sad I will go back and look at the others, if this is in fact the normal style I will skip any books written by them in the future If I want to listen to men brag about themselves and their accomplishments I m sure I could do so in any sports bar I normally take a moment to recommend a book to individuals that like a particular genre or authors, but in this case I just can t do it Honestly I am just to embarrassed for the authors, and to saddened for the victim s family to recommend this book to anyone.

    Too much Weber,,The murder of Karla was a horrible occurrence Unfortunately, too much of the story focused on the heroic personality of Weber Also, over and over was statements about the physical beauty of Karla and her sisters,,overkill,,it would make one wonder with the evidence in the basement, were there no hair or blood from the accused,,no foot or finger prints,,,most evidence was hearsay by other s, years later,after evidence had been in the news for awhile Not saying he didn t do it,but lots of its Also, the bite mark evidence was fifty fifty This was a story where I wouldn t have been convinced enough,if on the jury to have felt enough proof of a guilty vote.

    This was definitely an interesting book and I was hooked from the start It was amazing to learn how profiling got its start I tried to go into this blind so I could follow it like it was happening right now, but because of an assignment I had to do some research and I accidentally found out who the killer was before it was revealed in the book When I found out that Prante was on the USS Enterprise I was so mad because my dad served on it and Prante just kept coming back to his time in Vietnam when he was only in the navy for like a year I have a high respect for people who serve but he is a low life and doesn t deserve respect after committing a crime as bad as this However, overall this was a great read
