Summary "In 2012 Kate Ranta and her father used their combined strength to brace themselves against the front door of her home, as her estranged husband, an Air Force Major, tried to force his way inside. For years he had been verbally and emotionally abusive, but never caused physical harm. Until the unthinkable happened. In a rage he fired bullets through the door from a 9mm Beretta, shooting Kate and her father. Their 4-year-old son stood paralyzed as he witnessed the horrific event. Reading like a real-life horror-thriller, Killing Kate details episodes of her husband's deranged mind games and twisted actions which threaten her sanity and safety. It serves as a cautionary flag critical of the ways the police and legal system failed to protect her--including the court's denial of three restraining order requests before the shooting. And, it serves as a rallying cry for women to come together, support each other in knowing the danger signs, exit potentially violent and abusive relationships, and avoid entering into them in the first place. Kate's story and book are essential reading in the fight against domestic and gun violence." -- Page 4 of cover.
