On facebook someone mentioned a book called The Cadet Murder case by AW Gray. The title vaguely sounded familiar so I looked it up and discovered i was right. I had read a book about the so called cadet murder but searching my shelves on Goodreads I did not get any result. So I went back to bookcrossing where I registered my books before GR and bingo. I had read it.

This is my what childish review. Bare with me please :)

David Graham was my best friend in elementary school. It blew my mind when I heard about this years later, although my mom had always said something wasn't right about him. Anyway I wrote him in prison and he responded. He said this book was the most accurate book written about their story.

I totally watched the lifetime movie with Holly Marie Combs and just HAD to read the true-crime book. Very typical crime book, but just a very sad story.

I do wish this would have included the trial, so we knew the outcome of this story, Thankfully I was able to look it up on the Internet.

I have seen the "made for television movie" countless times, mostly on the Lifetime network, so I knew the story pretty well. The book claimed that the movie got it wrong, and this presented the truth. I hate to break it to the author, but the movie was relatively accurate, only changing a few details around for dramatic purposes.
What happened is this...on a December night in 1995, high schooler David Graham and his fiancee Diane Zamora lured 16 year old Adrianne Jones into David's car, took her

This book was interesting it tells about the murder of a 16 year old girl by two teenages. The one thing I really disliked about this book is the author tended to repeat things over and over. Another problem is he tried to fit so much in a book with less then 300 pages that sometimes it was hard to get through all the excessive stuff. I saw no reason for the pages full of bits and pieces from different magazines, newspapers, and interviews.

After trying to commit suicide and failing, Diave tells David he must kill Adrianne to absolve him of his crime against their relationship. In Bilnd ...more

I remember following this story in the news and seeing the tv movie. I absolutely loved the movie for it's drama.

The author's prologue put a damper on the whole book because I finished the book disappointed. The author states up front in the book that the movie didnt get it right. I dont see many differences between the movie and what is known to have really happened. IMHO the movie was for entertainment and told a story....it was not a documentary and didn't say it was a documentary.

Interesting who done it. One of the most mixed-up love affair.

About love obsessed teens that killed a person that was a "rival" between them. The guilt tore them up and brought them down.
