Small Sacrifices -Ann Rule True story of Diane Downs, mother who claims to have been hi-jacked and her children shot. One died, one crippled and the other emotionally disturbed. Adopted by the prosecuter and his wife.

Susan McFarland was a vivacious, successful mother of three young sons. On November 25, 2002, she disappeared. Three days later, her car was found, keys in the ignition. Later that day, her husband reported her missing--and a desperate search began.

Her friends and family hoped against hope that Susan was not gone forever. But investigators became increasingly suspicious of Richard McFarland. When the charred, decomposed body of Susan McFarland was finally discovered at an overgrown farmstead outside of San Antonio, a new hunt began--for justice.

McFarland maintained his innocence, and investigators only had circumstantial evidence against him. While headlines screamed out new details in the case, and police tried to gather more evidence, a blockbuster trial was about to begin. Then, Richard McFarland finally spoke...and a terrifying, chilling truth came out...


Reviews about Gone Forever: A True Story of Marriage, Betrayal, and Murder (True Crime (St. Martin's Paperbacks)) (7):
Felolv
This was a very sad and yet painful read. How does Sue keep a guy like that around? Richard could not keep a job, let alone want one, when he is given the time and space just to shop and spend money. Seeing he was home and not working he could not take the time to clean, cook, watch the kids instead he took the time to get further into debt, and to figure out just how to kill the only person willing to keep him around. It's a pathetic way to live, in a way nether had the backbone to say goodbye through a lawyer, no let's have a bonfire instead. Richard never wanted those boys, there was nothing telling me that he loved any of them. Thank goodness he has lost his parental rights, the children will be so much better off. The only one the children should miss was Sue, she did love those kids. Such a sad story.

I remember this case very well. This book told details of the story that I had always wondered about, since no trial was held. While it's easy to look back, with all of the information in this book,--the accounts of neighbors,friends, family and acquaintances, and wonder why Sue McFarland stayed in this relationship as long as she did, hind sight is 20/20. I read this book in 2 days, but the events happened over several years. I'm sure there were some good times in between that caused her to stay longer. As for the names of the boys being changed in the book, and the photo of the grave stone showing the real names also shown, I wondered why that was done as well. (as another reviewer did) I didn't know the publisher had the final say. You would think publisher wouldn't have done that, after the author had gone to the trouble of concealing their real names.

I like Diane Fanning and have read most of her books, reviewed a few, but I have to say this book is not up to her usual standards. To begin with, the victim in this true crime was called by 2 different names in the first 1/4 of the book and I believe this sort of shoddy editing is just bad news. The victim is first called 'Susan Burris Smith' (her correct name) then a mere 40 pages later is named 'Susan Burns Smith'. How could Fanning have let this happen? Does she not read her finished manuscript? Then there's the problem with the 'lead-in' for this book. It states the killer will speak (which I thought meant at the very least he would tell us something about why he had done what he did) but that's not what happened at all. In fact, in the courtroom, the killer didn't even have to tell the court why and how he murdered his wife. To me that's just inexcusable. Fanning should not have made that claim. We true crime readers really do want to know the 'why and how' of a murder and she promised us this! Then she didn't deliver, telling us later in the epilogue that the killer's family was simply not willing to cooperate with her and let her in on his upbringing. This is cheating, as far as I am concerned. I used to like Fanning. Now I'm not so sure I will read her again. This was, at best, a superficial book, written mostly from transcripts. Not much bang for the buck, if you ask me.

This is a really great book! It has very little (though some) filler, that I just skimmed over. The story is a very sad one that leaves two families completely torn apart. Diane Fanning does a great job telling all the parts of the story in an interesting and easy to understand way. Everything moved quickly and always left me wanting to hurry and get back to it. It was hard to put down! I would definitely recommend it to other true crime buffs!

Although the story is fascinating, the author tells the story in a rather disconnected manner, in my opinion. I am about half way through the book and I am struggling with finishing it because the information is almost written piece-meal, perhaps more like newspaper article, rather than a book. I would like to know the characters more personally and intimately, and read their story rather than be described bits and pieces and snipits of their lives. Conversations are more heresay and typically incomplete dialogs. Although some background is offered, it is more factual as a sequence of events. The author failed to identify the art of telling a story, and instead chose to offer a reporting of their lives. Frankly, if this book was fiction, I would probably not finish it, as I am frustrated by the way it is written. By contrast, "Such Good Boys" by Tina Dirmann was an incredible story, and equally if not more so, incredibly well written. I felt like I personally knew the boys or was living in the moment with them. I almost was wanting them to get a lesser murder charge for the empathy I developed by learning so much about these characters. Tina Dirmann wrote in a manner to get you emotionally connected to the characters. Unfortunately, I think Diane Fanning has completely missed it in her writing. Perhaps she should be reporting for the NY Times instead of writing books. Even Readers Digest adds more interest and drama in writting its stories!

This book is a real page turner!! I could not put it down. Though several reviewers complained about the official transcriptions being used, I felt they added to the story. It was surprising to me that that the children were not kept together after their father was put in jail. It seems to me they had many loving relatives who could step up to the plate. Also, I would like to read more about this case concerning Richard Clemmer. I watched a television program on this case and it was revealed that Mr. Clemmer was a suspect at one time. Why did the deceased think ill of him? Also, does anyone know what happened to Sally the dog and the two cats, Ana and Marvin?
