Murder Survivor's Handbook: Real-life Stories, Tips & Resources

“Words are woefully insufficient to convey the extraordinary value of “Murder Survivor’s Handbook.”  Written for survivors, but exceptionally useful for the professionals and friends who want to assist them, this book is unparallelled in its information about and guidance through the unique experience of traumatic bereavement following a loved one’s murder.  Its focus ranges from the pragmatic (e.g., how to stay safe, what to include in a courtroom survival kit) to the emotional (e.g., tending to your grief, remembering).  Saindon’s “survivor tips” are worth their weight in gold, and make this superb resource a virtual roadmap for all who find themselves navigating the treacherous waters of life after murder.  Clearly written and easy to digest, this book is jam-packed with essential information and, without qualification, is now the go-to book for all homicide survivors and caregivers of all types who help them.  I cannot recommend it highly enough!”
