Summary

From the outside looking in, Jennifer Pan seemed like a model daughter living a perfect life. The ideal child, the one her immigrant parents saw, was studying to become a pharmacist at the University of Toronto. But there was a dark, deceptive side to the angelic young woman.

In reality, Jennifer spent her days in the arms of her high-school sweetheart, Daniel. In an attempt to lead the life she dreamed of, she would do almost anything: lie about her whereabouts, forge school documents, and invent fake jobs and a fictitious apartment. For many years she led this double life. But when her father discovered her web of lies, his ultimatum was severe. And so, too, was her revenge: a plan that culminated in cold-blooded murder. And it almost worked, except for one bad shot. The story of Jennifer Pan is one of all-consuming love and devious betrayal that led to a cold-hearted plan hatched by a group of youths who thought they could pull off the perfect crime.

Eurocentric and Bias

This author could not work out whether Jennifer's parents were ethnic Vietnamese or ethnic Chinese (born in Vietnam). It took me 5 minutes researching on the Chinese language Internet to discover that they are ethnic Chinese people living in Vietnam who spoke both Vietnamese and Cantonese (implying their Chinese ancestry is from hhe Guangdong area of Mainland China). They left Vietnam in 1979 because of the Border War between China and Vietnam which caused ethnic tension between the two ethnic groups. They wanted to eventually return to Vietnam and in no way supported the US invasion of that country. The author is wrong to imply that they left Vietnam to escape the Socialist government. Furthermore, just as the author cannot get the ethnicity of Jennifer's parents correct., he resorts to various stereotypical devices to fill the glaring holes in a book where none of the main four characters chose to collaborate with him!

Too much time spent on uninteresting statistics

I dont think its relevant where the parents came from and where they went to school or what type of car they drove. The history just goes on and on ! . not a great read. Very boring could have been so much shorter.

Good Story - Odd Formating

This really is a good true crime story. I just didn't care for the way the case was presented. I feel like this is a 4 hours story that's been stretched into 12 hours. Narration is serviceable.

Drones on!

I found this read to be exceptionally boring, not only does it skip around A LOT making it hard to follow, its full of boring, unimportant details. I had to quit listening around the 4tb chapter.. I kept listening w/the hopes of it getting better, grabbing my attention w/the next chapter, however, that was not the case.. maybe others will find it to their liking , I however, did not !!

Blah

Not a captivating story. I listened half way and couldn’t finish. I wish I could return it for my credit back.
