Haunting story about a pretty young lady who was shot & killed by a stoned "Scarface" wannabe lawyer in California who dumped her body like trash to try and save his neck. Tells about his capture and trial.

The coincidences and bizarre list of characters you would expect it to be nothing but a work of fiction. The victim seems to have been unlucky enough to purely have been in the wrong place at the wrong time as it could have been one of number of women given the circumstances.

Not the type of book I would usually perhaps pick up and read but this was a charity shop purchase.
