October, 1992. When Cindy Albrecht flew back to Indiana so she could be home in time for the finalisation of her divorce, she’d begun feeling anxious every time she thought about it. Her husband, Michael, also known as “Crabby” has still been trying to talk to her in an effort to get her to cave in and get back with him. But there’s no way she’s going back to that life. Nothing but being controlled and monitored all of the time and never having any fun, all while worrying about his explosive temper. No thanks. She’s got a great job as executive chef for the Penske – Marlboro Racing Team hospitality and things are going in a great direction finally for her with her work and her friends. She’s even started fallen for a great new guy and it looks like she’ll be moving to Florida soon to be with him.
A couple of days later, no one can reach Cindy at her place and she’s missed a meeting and more importantly, she missed showing up to sign her final divorce papers. After her friends compare notes two of her best friends and coworkers drive over to Cindy’s apartment to check on her. Her truck is there, but they get no answer at the door. They finally get in by climbing up to the balcony and going in thru the patio door and find her two cats wandering about and crying hungrily for food. The two women grabbed hands and went through each room, not finding their friend anywhere. After consulting with her new boyfriend by phone, they hang up and quickly called police and reported her missing.
I enjoyed this true crime book written by the prosecutor Larry Sells that covers the investigation, her body being found, and then the trial. The case seems fairly obvious, but there are lots of quirks to it, and it’s far from a slam dunk in court. You really want to see the killer get his due. For true crime fans and for racing fans as well. The victim was well liked by those in racing, and had just enjoyed an end of season Halloween party thrown by one of the well known racers and his wife that was just filled with famous racing names of the day. Advance electronic review copy was provided by NetGalley, authors Larry Sells & Margie Porter, and the publisher.
