If You Really Loved Me

S to life But in the wake of Cinnamon's murder conviction thanks in part to two determined lawmen the twisted private world of David Brown himself unfolded with astonishing clarity revealing a trail of perverse love twisted secrets and evil mind games A complex and often dangerous investigation suggested a horrifying scenario Was the seemingly bland David. David Brown is one of the most sadistic evil characters I have ever read about As mentioned in the book he was worse than well known killers like Manson because he looked so normal yet wielded so much power The story begins simply enough Police are called to a house and discover a woman shot in her bedroom Her name is Linda Brown she is married to David Brown They live with David s daughter Cinnamon Linda s sister Patti and their baby Linda and David s Krystal David was out at the time of the shooting Patti in shock and Cinnamon has vanished Later found hiding in a dog house after a failed suicide attempt Cinnamon is brought in to the police station where she confesses to killing her stepmother She is eventually convicted and sent to a juvenile prison End of story or so it would seem But something does not ring true and two determined investigators begin digging deeper They find some disturbing things As the story unravels the true David Brown is revealed Not the charming man successful businessman loving father but a manipulative cold calculating man who will turn in anyone in order to save himself Even locked behind bars David proves to be a dangerous man plotting to destroy those who were after him but in the end it turns out to be his down fall A truly chilling tale Even with the afterward at the end I still wonder about how the young girls in David s life have managed to survive if they received counselling or therapy for what they were put through and if they were ever able to pick up the pieces of their lives and live normally again The fact that he continues to reach out to one of the girls from prison tells me they might not have But throughout the story despite the evil twisted world of David Brown we see there is human kindness and some good people even in the most unusual places Included are the tireless investigators and DA a career criminal member of a biker gang who turned out to be charming and compassionate and one of the most beloved people to come out of this story It s a long read but worth it to make sure that justice is truly served in the end But I feel I will always be left wondering about the lives of the three young girls most affected by this man and his crimes Cinnamon Patti and Krystal

There was only one way to please her father Murder his wife David Brown was the consummate entrepreneur a computer wizard and millionaire by age thirty two When his beautiful young wife was shot to death as she slept Brown's fourteen year old daughter Cinnamon confessed to killing her stepmother The California courts sentenced her harshly twenty four year. This is one of my favorite true crime books by Ann Rule even though it doesn t sound right to say favorite about a true life crime The crimes that were committed were so heinous and unbelievable that you wanted to believe it was a bad fiction murder story The story is so captivating I couldn t put the book down for long I had to know of this murderous creature I don t even want to call him a man He ruined so many lives and to all those involved the dastardly deeds were all done in the name of love What a pathetic animal he was and is if he s still alive I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys true crime books or anyone who wants to see how vulnerable children can be to an obscene predator who manipulated their young minds by telling them how much he loved them when they didn t have a proper male role model in their lives to fill the void in their heartsThis book is so well written and draws you into the world of a devious monster that appeared so normal to the people on the outside
