  • this is one of those stories that will stick with you for a lot longer than you would like. It's such a terrible story of what happened , and yet had to be told. Denise was just a person trying to live, so she does what most people do on a daily basic. She is taken against her will , somehow gets her hands on the phone of the kidnapper ,calls 911 hoping she can get help, does she? NO! The system fails her terribly , this is her only chance to save herself, all she finds is she is going to be killed. Was she afraid , no one will ever know how much, you have to be there to feel it. No one ever wants to be there. The only good that came out of that night was that Eddie Pope found the green camero that they were looking for, and he got to arrest Michael Lee King. The court case followed, with way to much information, some of it just turned your stomach. I passed by most of it. The bottom line Nate Lee filed a lawsuit against CCSO for the botched 911 call, Then the CCSO told Nate they were not responsible for Denise's life, wait a minute, than why have the 911 system. This is where you say, REALLY! That's what 911 is! So sorry for all of her family, they lost a really great and brave woman.

  • The story of this senseless murder and the sadness you feel for the victim and her family would seemingly make for a great true crime book. The author, however, seems to be rewriting the trail transcript instead. I don't need to have every day of the trial recapped. I wanted to stop reading but I cared so much about the victim I felt she deserved to have the book finished. I have read 1000s of true crime and this one is so bad because of the minutia conveyed about each witness and each day of the trial. There are few personal details about the victim and her family and no background story so we could get to know her and her loved ones. If you want to read true crime that goes into the background of the victim and her life before it was taken, this book does not do it. We only know her by her husband's recollections which the author repeats from other sources such as TV interviews. Not only was the murder of Denise Amber Lee an avoidable and senseless crime, but this book makes it sadder because we don't get to know her as a person. Senseless crime. Senseless book.

  • There are some books that you just can't put down. They are told in such a way, that you find yourself not wanting to turn off the lights to go to sleep. Helter Skelter comes to mind as being one of those books. A Killer's Touch, should have been one those books. It is the horrifying story of a young mother who is kidnapped out of her home in broad daylight and forced to leave behind her two small children. On the road, many people have heard Denise Amber Lee's cry for help but many do nothing - except for one woman who calls 911 to report what she believes, is a small child in the back seat of a car in distress, and crying out for help. She then gives the location and model of the car, and keeps the killer in sight for as long as she can however, while the police are out there searching for Denise, the crucial information that may have saved her life is not getting to them due to nothing more then incompetence! Sad, sad, sad! Denise is smart enough to leave clues behind and one cannot help but be sickened by what this poor woman must have been going through. We learn that Denise had a loving husband and family and she was a good mother, but we learn little about the killer - who he is and why did he do it? The second part of the book which is more then half the book, is all courtroom information and it gets a bit tedious since there was really no suspense here. There is enough evidence that Michael King is the killer and to make matters worse, the bum is still sitting on death row eating, drinking and breathing. True crime fans may want to skip this one....sorry.

  • I live about 2 hours from where this crime happened. I remember it vaguely, but this book has certainly refreshed my memory. I now feel like it happened yesterday. The book gives a moment by moment account of what happened on January 17, 2008 to Denise and how the 911 center & Harold failed to save her. It sickens me that so much was offered to save this woman, but all of it was in vain. The 2nd part of the book goes through each day of the court proceedings. I couldn't read all of this because it was reiterating a lot of what was written in the first part of the book, just written in a more legal language & overly redundant. Overall, I would recommend this book just to help make people aware of what happened, and help to find ways to improve any antiquated processes we may still have in place 4 years later.

  • Even though the book was written well, it was tedious to read. I could not finish it. The book was primarily about the police investigation and court trial. The book had very little depth in terms of the killer and the victim and her family. It read like a court transcript, in fact, I think it probably was a court transcript.

  • I love reading true crime - but not this time.
    The majority of the story is in-depth details of the court case, and to a lesser degree, the 911 phone call made by a passerby who witnessed the abduction.
    I don't know why the blurb mentions neighbours reporting the offender throwing acid in their pool, and slashing their tyres, as it was obviously of no relevance to the story, as it covered 2 sentences in the book, and was never mentioned again.
    The killer doesn't confess, so the details of the actual crime are sketchy at best.
    I kept reading, and reading, and reading, waiting for something to grab my interest, but it just didn't happen.

  • My heart broke for Denise Lee an her family when I saw their story on dateline. I'm so glad Michael Benson came out with this book because I wanted to know more details n he provided all of that!! May Denise rest in peace. She is an amazing woman who had done so much by the age of 21 her family should be proud

  • This was such a sad story. A senseless taking of life of a young mother who had so much to live for. Well told, easy fast read. Captivated me from the beginning. Every now and then I like to read a true crime story and this one did not disappoint. Good but sad...
