Who Killed My Daughter?


The most difficult book Lois Duncan ever had to write was non-fiction. Who Killed My Daughter? is the true story of her search for the truth behind the brutal murder of the youngest of her five children.  Although written for adults, this book was named a School Library Journal "Best Book Of the Year" and an American Library Association “Best Book For Young Adults.”

Kaitlyn Arquette, 18, was shot to death in her car in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1989.  Although police pronounced the murder a random-driveby-shooting, Kaitlyn’s family believes she was deliberately killed because she was preparing to blow the whistle on organized crime. The case is still unsolved, but the family’s personal investigation is on-going.  New information continues to surface. 


Who Killed My Daughter? was featured on such shows as “Good Morning, America,” “Larry King Live,” “Unsolved Mysteries,” “Inside Edition,” and “Sally Jessy Raphael.”  The book is now available in paperback.  If it’s not in your local library or neighborhood bookstore, it can be ordered at a discount from on-line bookstores like Barnes & Noble and
