Editor reviews

In Who Killed My Daughter?, acclaimed young adult author Lois Duncan recounts the harrowing story of her own daughter’s tragically unsolved murder, and her personal quest to find and bring a killer to justice.

Teri Clark Linden performs this raw and affecting memoir, her calm, even voice bringing some balance to the emotional turmoil evident throughout this intense audiobook. Who Killed My Daughter? is a poignant and elegiac recollection of personal grief and grit in the face of immeasurable horror, and Duncan’s journey through shock to rage and eventually uneasy acceptance is gripping, and not to be missed.

Summary

The best-selling young adult novelist recounts her daughter's mysterious shooting death and her own investigation into the crime, describing her use of a psychic to contact her dead child and expose the truth.

Not a True Crime Novel in the traditional sense

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The Narrator has a very odd speaking pattern that became increasingly intolerable for me. She reads almost every sentence as an interrogative sentence. Her voice goes up at the end of each sentence as if she is asking a question even when she is reading a fact. So, possibly, I may have enjoyed this book slightly more if it had been read by another narrator.

Has Who Killed My Daughter? turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Who Killed My Daughter??

All scenes having to do with psychic readings should have been ommitted. As the genre implies, a true crime novel should be made up of known facts. The endless droning on about the numerous psychic readings the author attended was nonsensical and did not add to the story in any way at all. There is not one "fact" that was offered during any psychic reading that aided the author in finding the answer to her question "Who Killed My Daughter". The readings of these transcripts from the psychic were boring and pointless to this listener and detracted from the story.

Sad story. Horrible narration.

I was familiar with the story and the author. There is a personal connection to this family. However, the narration was absolutely horrible. Never again will I listen to any book she reads. please have someone else read this!!! You are doing a great disservice to Lois and the family.

Robotic

The narrator seems almost like a text to speech voice. Which is fine, but a bit odd.

True Story

I enjoy reading nonfiction. However, this story (even though there is a sequel) suffers from the number one issue with true stories, it is unresolved. So it is fascinating to read about the family, the case, and all the possible solutions. But you have to be okay without those answers.

Sad, compelling story but needs to be updated

Uses culturally inappropriate words like "oriental" to describe Asian people. The narrator is terrible at accents, her Mexican, Norwegian, and Vietnamese accents all sound vaguely Asian.

Draws you in

Although there is not a definitive ending to this story (and no answer to the titular question), the author takes the listener on a journey both incredulous and everyday. The story told is a melding of true crime and memoir and reveals how "ordinary people" with "ordinary lives" are impacted by extra ordinary events.

Sooooo Repetitive

This story has the potential to be a great one, but I was so frustrated and bored by the continuous repetition of details. And I can’t even describe how it made me want to scream!
I’m sorry the family went through this tragedy, but the book should be much more concise.
