Requirements: .ePUB reader, 692 KB
Overview: Was Jason the monster who bludgeoned his beautiful wife to death, leaving his toddler alone for hours to walk through her blood? If so-would he get away with it?
To the outside world, Jason and Michelle Young lived a storybook life-an attractive couple with great jobs, a beautiful home, a precocious two-year-old daughter, and a baby boy on the way.
Soon after the 29-year-old pregnant mother’s brutally beaten body was discovered on their bedroom floor, a very different
picture emerged. Of a marriage crumbling at its foundation. Of a meddlesome New York mother-in-law whose running
critique left Jason frustrated and angry. Of a 32-year-old man who behaved like a frat boy rebelling against adult responsibilities.
MURDER ON BIRCHLEAF DRIVE documents the gripping tale of a family’s marathon quest for justice, confounding crime scene evidence, persistence of law enforcement officers, and riveting courtroom combat.
“A compelling and accurate description of a fascinating murder case, from the initial investigation through the twists and turns of two trials, and all the strategic decisions in between. One of the best true crime books I have read. Very entertaining.”
-David S. Rudolf, defense attorney for Michael Peterson, featured in the Netflix series The Staircase
“Psychological thriller meets true crime story at its best! MURDER ON BIRCHLEAF DRIVE is a riveting account of what, at first blush, appears to be a boy-meets-girl romance but ends in bloody horror. Epstein brilliantly details the unraveling of the couple’s relationship and eloquently captures the legal details, making the most complicated aspects of the murder case completely understandable. Prepare yourself for an intense, heart-pounding read!”
