Having moved to the Tampa area after this happened I still found it very fascinating. That a person could have screamed and the neighbors did nothing at all. The author did a wonderful job on writing this book. You also have to feel for the families and friends of Karen Gregory. This is one of those books that once you start you do not want to put it down until it is completed.
Publishers Weekly, 1991-03-15 While no murder is inconsequential, readers have reason to expect that a book devoted to a killing will highlight some aspect that sets that crime apart, yet this account by St. Petersburg Times reporter French makes no such claim. Karen Gregory, a 36-year-old graphic artist from Gulfport, Fla,, was slain in 1984 as she was moving into the house she was to share with her lover. Stabbed 20 times, her one scream was ignored by neighbors; but French's suggestion of an analogy with the infamous 1964 Kitty Genovese case in New York City is tenuous. The police work was undistinguished; the sergeant who solved the case appears to have been doggedly persistent rather than brilliant. In 1987 local firefighter George Lewis was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment. French's compassion for the family and friends of the victim is the most notable element here.
