Connie Krauser Chaney had a troubled childhood that she hoped to escape by creating her own stable and caring family. Stability, however, was the last thing she found with her husband Wayne Chaney. Physically and sexually abusive, Wayne was an uncontrollable force in the life of Connie and their young beautiful son, Max. Acclaimed author Gera-Lind Kolarik investigates both sides of this fatally abusive relationship, which prompted one of the United States' first anti-stalking laws.
