From critically acclaimed true crime writer Kathryn Casey comes the story of the brutal murders of a mother and child in a quiet suburb of Houston—at the hands of the one closest to them.

In Creekstone, Texas, a small, quiet suburb of Houston, football was king … and David Temple was a prince. A former high school and college gridiron star-turned-coach, he had a fairy-tale marriage to bright, vivacious Belinda Lucas, a teacher at the local high school who was so warm and popular her colleagues called her the “Sunshine Girl.”

The fairy tale ended savagely on January 11, 1999, when Belinda’s lifeless body was discovered in a closet. Her skull had been shattered by a shotgun blast at close range. She was eight months pregnant.

There was no damning evidence directly linking the brutal murder to husband David, who stood by emotionless and dry-eyed as police searched the crime scene. But a dogged eight-year investigation would expose a shocking history of cruelty, domination, infidelity, and rage—ultimately resulting in an epic courtroom battle for the ages—as the scandalous truth was revealed about love betrayed and innocent lives shattered.
