Kathryn Casey is one of the best true crime writers today

Kathryn Casey is one of the best true crime writers today. Ann Rule With true crime classics like Descent into Hell and Die My Love, author Kathryn Casey has peered into the darkest corners of the Lone Star State, shedding a fascinating, chilling light on a series of notorious Texas murders. In Shattered, she explores in riveting detail an infamous Houston area crime: the brutal slaying of a young mother and her unborn child by the person closest to them.

Автор: Casey Kathryn Название: Shattered: The True Story of a Mother .

newSpecify the genre of the book on their own. Author: Kathryn Casey. Title: Shattered: The True Story of a Mother's Love, a Husband's Betrayal, and a Cold-­Blooded Texas Murder. But a dogged eight-­year investigation would expose a shocking history of cruelty and domination, infidelity and rage-ultimately resulting in an epic courtroom battle for the ages-as the scandalous truth was revealed about love betrayed and innocent lives.

Hero, Husband, Father . . . Monster?

In Creekstone, Texas, a small, quiet suburb of Houston, football was king . . . and David Temple was a prince. A former high school and college gridiron star-turned-coach, he had a fairy-tale marriage to bright, vivacious Belinda Lucas, a teacher at the local high school who was so warm and popular her colleagues called her "The Sunshine Girl."

The fairy tale ended savagely on January 11, 1999, when Belinda's lifeless body was discovered in a closet. Her skull had been shattered by a shotgun blast at close range. She was eight months pregnant.

There was no damning evidence directly linking the brutal murder to husband David, who stood by emotionless and dry-eyed as police searched the crime scene. But a dogged eight-year investigation would expose a shocking history of cruelty and domination, infidelity and rage—ultimately resulting in an epic courtroom battle for the ages—as the scandalous truth was revealed about love betrayed and innocent lives . . . shattered.

  • A Must Read................

    I watched a 48 Hours Show on Discovery ID a week ago about David Temple awaiting the Texas Court of Appeals decision on him receiving a new trial, with his new defense attorneys claiming Kelly Siegler, prosecutor in his first trial, withholding information from the original defense attorneys. Knowing absolutely nothing about his wife Belinda's murder, I found myself believing Temple should receive a new trial. After watching the program, I viewed the 48 Hours Facebook Page and began reading the comments. Although many felt the same as I did, I noticed a comment from one who noted that David Temple was guilty and that the proof is in a book, "Shattered," by Kathryn Casey. I immediately clicked the link to amazon.com, to read the synopsis and comments, then ordered the book for my Kindle.

    I read 75% of this book until I could no longer keep my eyes open and then finished it the next day! Wow, Kathryn Casey provides a thorough history of David Temple going back to when he was a youngster and continuing throughout his high school days, college, his marriage to Belinda Lucas, her murder and the trial and sentencing. There was no doubt in my mind that he murdered Belinda and that he got what he deserved. It's too bad, at the time he was charged, the law protecting the unborn, was not in effect in Texas yet. Otherwise, he would have been charged with double murder!

    At the same time, I was introduced to a True Crime Author by the name of Kathryn Casey who captivated me from the beginning of "Shattered," and didn't let me go even after I completed the book, as I wanted a thorough update of what has been happening with Belinda's family since the trial and the shenanigans of the Temple Clan to continue to deny, lie and protect David!! It was disgusting to read how they had a Pow Wow shutting out Belinda's friends from paying their respects, as they came up with a plan to provide a safety net for their beloved and guilty, son and brother! Belinda was adored by everyone who knew her, including the Temples and excluding David! Just when you think you've heard it all, Kathryn Casey unveils more about David Temple, the liar, cheater, manipulator and murderer! You will not be disappointed and I strongly recommend this book for all who love reading True Crime.

    Upon completion of the book, I ordered another book for my Kindle, by Kathryn Casey and 6 more books in paperback! With Ann Rule no longer with us, I've been craving an author who writes in a style which has me inhaling every single word until I'm satiated, yet grabbing for another helping because I can't get enough!

  • Like many others, I purchased this book after watching the "48 Hours" episode. To be perfectly honest, I had an unfavorable opinion of Kelly Siegler from watching "Cold Justice", specifically because I found her enthusiasm to move forward with sketchy cases to be incredible. However, at the same time I wasn't ready to accept "48 Hours" as a sound source of information, either. This same television show had previously trumpeted Ms. Siegler as a hero in another case, and the David Temple episode felt almost like knocking her off the pedestal they had built for her.

    Kathryn Casey fills in the background that the television show conveniently left out. We see Belinda as the tragic figure she was, trapped in a bad marriage but unable or unwilling to pull herself out of it. This is an all too common occurrence in abusive relationships. And David Temple is abusive. Aside from his family, and some of them waffle on it, almost no one who knew him saw him in a positive light. I have to wonder about the few, mostly fellow coaches, who did. That they could see a man who openly flaunted his cheating in front of them, a man who seemed constantly to be telling others to "control their wives", as incapable of harming his own wife, is beyond my capacity to comprehend. The David Temple presented in this book is a well documented bully. He was a bully in high school. He was a bully in college. He was a bully as an adult.

    Now, being a bully does not make you a killer, and if that was all there was to it, had I been on the jury I would have had a difficult time reaching a guilty verdict. But that's not all there is to it. Granted, the evidence is, by the nature of the crime, circumstantial. DNA evidence? It was his home, any DNA found would be useless. The same with fingerprints and other normal ways to identify a perpetrator. Kathryn Casey does a stellar job taking the reader through the evidence that does exist and the timeline. In the end, I picked up this book believing that David Temple, if not innocent, was not provably guilty, either. By a third of the way through the book I was beginning to think he was guilty, and by the end I was convinced.

  • This is an outstanding piece of writing by Kathryn Casey. I bought this book after watching the recent 48 Hours feature "Playing by the Rules?" and wondering if David Temple was being railroaded. I came away with a very different idea after reading Casey's book. It is well-researched and very detailed about David Temple's history of abusive relationships, his extremely self-obsessed ways and his arrogant, enabling family. It is also very detailed about the way Temple continually mistreated his wife Belinda and how he didn't want a daughter. His open, ongoing affair during the time when the murder takes place is also detailed and documented. The David Temple that is seen crying on 48 Hours about the loss of Belinda and his unborn daughter is not at all the David Temple revealed through numerous eyewitness accounts in the book. After reading the book, I was very disappointed in the way CBS presented this case for TV. They kind of twisted it for dramatic effect to draw more viewers in. I would encourage anyone interested in this case to get the book and read it.
