The Edge of Malice
The Marie Grossman Story
Marie seems to have it all: a devoted husband, two wonderful children, and a professional career. But all of that changes when she drives her car into the darkened parking lot of a fast food restaurant. After she lowers her car window to place an order at the drive-thru, a man suddenly appears and places a gun at her temple. What follows is every woman's worst nightmare. The Edge of Malice is a true story about struggle, determination, and a quest for justice. The author, an attorney, places the reader into the swirling currents of the courtroom where no outcome is ever certain. But the story does not conclude when the legal battle is over. The reader follows Marie as she struggles to resolve the unrelenting anger that the legal system has been unable to extinguish. In the end, Marie's journey to find inner peace is as improbable as it is transformative.
A touching true story
I loved the tone of this book. I’m a true crime junkie, and the writing style of this author is unique - it’s not too heavy or dense. Miraldi took me on a journey through the events, but doesn’t get hung up on inconsequential details. It reads like a fiction book, but is a touching true story. The story itself is incredible and gives a fresh look at how the criminal and civil justice systems can intertwine. And who can resist a charged story that finds some redemption in the midst of imperfection? Love it.
