Description

At 08:03 on the morning of Valentine's Day 2013, news broke that Oscar Pistorius, the Paralympic superstar known as the "Blade Runner," had shot and killed his girlfriend at his luxury home in Pretoria, South Africa. Within minutes, the story reverberated around the world as banners flashed across television screens broadcasting global news networks. At first glance, it appeared to be a heart-wrenching, tragic accident. The athlete had mistaken beautiful Reeva Steenkamp for an intruder. But as the morning unfolded, a second version of events began to reveal itself, indicating that the country's celebrated icon, its "Golden Boy," may have murdered his model girlfriend in a fit of rage.

In this vivid and insightful narrative, South African journalists Mandy Wiener and Barry Bateman reveal the true story of Oscar Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp, from that horrific night to the announcement of the shocking verdict. Drawing on evidence from the trial as well as on-the-ground interviews with family and friends of Oscar and Reeva, this is the authoritative account of one of the most high-profile trials of the 21st century, from the night of the killings to the controversial verdict. .

Description
"At 8:03 on the morning of Valentine's Day 2013, news broke that the Paralympic superstar had shot and killed his girlfriend at his home in a housing estate in Pretoria. Within minutes, the story reverberated around the world as banners flashed across television screens broadcasting global news networks. At first glance, it appeared to be a heart-wrenching, tragic accident. Pistorius had mistaken Reeva Steenkamp for an intruder, reminiscent of a similar incident involving a retired rugby player who had shot his daughter a decade earlier. This resonated with an empathetic South African society rattled by a pervasive fear of violent crime. But as the morning unfolded, a second version of events began to reveal itself, indicating that the country's celebrated icon, its 'Golden Boy', may have murdered his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in a fit of rage."-- From publisher's description.
