Eric Naposki, her NFL linebacker lover, fulfilled Nanette's wilder cravings. Together they schemed to make her fiance's fortune their own. When McLaughlin was gunned down, authorities had suspicions--but no proof. Pulitzer-nominated writer Caitlin Rother explores this chilling story of a woman who seemed to have it all--until justice finally had its day.
My Book Review:
In her latest novel, I'll Take Care Of You, author Caitlin Rother takes the reader behind the scenes of a riveting true crime thriller for an in depth look at a highly publicized premeditated murder case set in Newport Beach, California.
On December 15, 1994, multi-millionaire entrepreneur Bill McLaughlin was fatally shot in his kitchen. His killer left behind several clues: a new key stuck in the front door and another on the doormat, and six 9-millimeter bullet casings littered the floor. Suspected of committing the murder was Bill's fiancee, Nanette Johnston and her secret boyfriend Eric Naposki, an ex-NFL linebacker/nightclub bouncer. This is a story of a fatal love triangle, and a couple's lethal greed and intricate web of lies, secrets, and deceptions that took seventeen years for the justice system to prevail.
I'll Take Care Of You is a riveting story that easily draws the reader in from the start, keeping them captivated as the author weaves a thoroughly intriguing and intricate recounting of a highly publicized murder case.
The author provides the reader with a fascinating and richly detailed and in depth look into the back stories and lives of each participant; an extensive research of the investigative, legal and financial aspects of the case; and a sixteen page photo insert.
You can't help but get drawn into the story, the intricate web of deceit by femme fatale Nanette Johnston and Eric Naposki is shocking, their ability to fly below the radar of the justice system for fifteen years is mindboggling, until it all came crashing down when the Orange County District Attorney's Office and the Newport Beach Police Department launched a review of the cold case and arrested them for murder in May 2009. After an extensive and determined investigation and pursuit of justice for the McLaughlin family, the reader follows a haunting tale of one woman's depth of greed and the senseless tragedy that ensued until her conviction and sentence of life in prison without the possibility of a parole in 2012.
I'll Take Care Of You is a gripping and chilling account of murder, greed, and deception that is a must read for all true crime fans.
