"In one of the more bizarre and ironic twists to ever occur in the world of books, Carlton Stowers - who for several years has made his living as an award-winning writer of true crime, investigating the effects of senseless violence on families and victims - was himself thrust into a true-crime nightmare. Anson, Carlton's eldest son, was arrested for the murder of his twenty-five-year-old wife."--BOOK JACKET. "Here is the wrenching story of a father and a son: Carlton, a single father who raised his boys while making a reputation for himself as a Dallas journalist, doing his best to protect his sons from the emotional pain of divorce, and trying to ingrain in them his own powerful sense of right and wrong; and Anson, a boy who seemed to always take the wrong path. From his teenage years on, Anson's life was a string of anger, violence, and criminal activity: drugs, forgery, auto theft, and, finally, murder."--BOOK JACKET. "What goes wrong in a family to create such terror? And how does a father deal with the pain, anger, and guilt that comes with a child going bad? In Sins of the Son, we are given the painful and cathartic answer. Here is a crime writer and a father, grappling with the darkest truth that a parent could possibly have to face."--BOOK JACKET.
