Publisher's Summary

In Washington Township, Michigan, on Valentine's Day, 2007, Stephen Grant filed a missing persons report on his beloved wife, Tara. The stay-at-home father of two was beside himself with despair. Why would Tara abandon him and their family? Was she involved with another man?

Stephen's frantic, emotional search for Tara made national headlines, and the case was featured on Dateline among other television shows and news outlets. But key elements in Stephen's story still weren't adding up: Why did he wait five days to go to police? What was the nature of his relationship with his children's beautiful, 19-year-old babysitter? Why did Stephen have cuts on his hands, and random bruises? Then, the police made a gruesome discovery.

Parts of Tara Grant's body started turning up around the woods near their home. The truth was finally coming to light...and, after a two-day manhunt, Stephen admitted to having killed Tara―first strangling her, then cutting her body into 14 pieces before burying them. This is the shocking true story about a bitter, cheating husband whose crimes were revealed by the Blood in the Snow.

Mortifying!

I couldn't believe this story was true until I looked online and found out it truly was. I couldn't put this book down at all.

Good true crime writer

Tom Henderson is one of the better true crime writers around, close in quality to the two Olsens, Ann Rule etc. Here he does justice to the story of yet another psychopath who shatters the world of everyone he touches. His crime is truly heinous, and his bug-eyed facade of crocodile tears fools no one into believing that he actually has a shred of compassion anywhere in his being. This case is literally one for the books, and is taught in criminal justice classes.

Audible fan

This is a good book, to read especially the court room scene's. The only thing I would like to add, is that the Author, should have let the readers, know more about the main people in this book, their lives leading up to what occurred, but it's still a good true crime book. So Tragic, and disgusting!!! the husband, and so much sorrow for the children and that's a understatement..... LB Blair.

Who cares about the detectives high school life

This book bored me because it went off on so many tangents. No one cares where the detective went to prom or worked in high school. Too much information. Just tell the story

Character Development Flat

Disappointed in story. Didn't really get to "know" the victim and the timeline was drawn out in a strange, anti-climatic style.

Long winded with lots of tangents

The story is very interesting. I Just started listening to true crime and this one’s pretty good. I did not, however, like how long winded the author was. He often told back stories of characters that seemed unnecessary and long-winded. As an audiobook that I listen to while I was driving I found myself questioning who and how these stories related to the main story. I continually had to rewind a couple minutes to figure out who was being talked about and why it was necessary to dive so deeply into their backstory.
If you really like to get into the details this book may be for you. If you want a high fly over with some mystery and twists Find another book.

Wicked

How could anyone do this to another living being...especially one he had loved & gave him children. Is our society warped or do we watch too many violent movies?

Really good, but disturbing

The warning signs were there, but no one anticipated what the warning was about. Sad for the mother. but the children were also victims.

Better than I expected

Overall, a great listen/story however a little slow to start/get into at the beginning but eventually I couldn't wait until my next opportunity to hear more. As for performance, I have to adjust to any voice that isn't Kevin Pearce but quickly got used to this narrator.

Great but tragic story

Author does a great job of presenting facts, background, descriptions. Solidly narrated. If you’re a true crime buff, you will like this.

Recommend this book,an exceptional author.

This story is so well put to paper, an excellent break down of a violent, narcissist, who's sickening murder of his wife, leaving his children with a loving mother. And the arrogance,he displays without regard for his children and all the peoples lives he has torn apart,makes the book all the more saddened.

Tedious Listen

The story itself could be a good one but the amount of un-necessary information and repetition would put you to sleep ! If we were told once amount the sap on the maple trees we were told a thousand times ! I just drift in and out of the book and find it quite boring I'm sorry to say.

Interesting story but bad execution.

The story of this murder is interesting enough, while horrifying, but this book is badly written and not narrated particularly well, either. I was disgusted to hear some blatant misgendering from the author also, referring to a transgender woman as a ‘transsexual man’. Regardless of context, this is not okay. If you are interested in this crime I would recommend simply reading articles on the murder online rather than listening to this book.

Genuinely heatbreaking

As a true crime buff, I've listened to and read many stories about terrible things, but this story really got to me. I just can't comprehend the actions of a husband against his wife and mother of his children
I also loved how this book was written, I'll be checking out the author for anymore of his works
Fantastic narration too
