In 2008, the world was captivated by the bizarre behavior displayed by Casey Anthony. The then-22-year-old single mother from Orlando, Florida, was revealed to have spun a web of lies to cover up for the disappearance of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, that summer; the Facebook photos of her partying around town and a dearth of emotion in interviews fueling the charges of first-degree murder before Caylee's body was discovered later that year.

However, there would be no closure for those outraged by a mother's neglect of her child, as Casey escaped conviction in 2011, while the questions of who killed her young daughter and why were never resolved.

If Casey Anthony put her two-year-old daughter's body in a forest a quarter-mile from the Anthony home, why did it take five months to find her?

The second narrative in this book unpacks the astonishing two week aftermath following Casey Anthony's arrest in crystal clear chronological detail.

It interrogates Caylee Anthony's mysterious paternity in the most persuasive analysis yet

Through this book, the author also introduces a brand new and fascinating concept to the true-crime genre - Criminal Intertextuality. The efficacy of this tool to plumb the murky family dynamics of this case is what sets this narrative apart.
