I am thrilled to welcome best-selling true crime author Caitlin Rother back to Colloquium today. Her tenth book, Then No One Can Have Her, has just been published and is earning high praise from both reviewers and readers, including me. (You can read my review here.) It is the true story of the murder of Carol Kennedy, a mother of two girls, who had finally become empowered enough to extricate herself from her codependent, dysfunctional marriage to Steven DeMocker, a charming, manipulative womanizer. Even though the divorce left her drowning in debt, Carol was establishing a new life on her own terms. Savagely murdered in her own outside Prescott, Arizona, the killer attempted to make the crime scene appear as though Carol had fallen and sustained fatal injuries. Despite numerous flaws in the homicide investigation and years of unfathomable legal complications, DeMocker was finally convicted and is serving a life sentence plus twenty-one years.
