Books Info:

Christie free pdf On the morning of 7 November 2011, Tracey Marceau lived every mother's worst nightmare - a young man entered her family home, pushing Tracey to the side before kicking and repeatedly stabbing her daughter, Christie. Emergency services arrived within minutes, but were too late - Christie died in her mother's arms. Making this unbearable situation yet worse, Christie's killer, Akshay Chand, had been released on bail just two weeks earlier for charges relating to kidnapping Christie, during which he threatened to rape and kill her. Christie had begged the courts to keep him in custody, fearing for her life. Christie is her story. We learn of her happy family life and teenage years, the events leading up to her murder (including Chand's growing infatuation and the kidnapping), as well as hear in previously untold, often harrowing detail what happened that day. We hear how Tracey and the family pulled together amid unthinkable tragedy and got their lives back on track. Importantly, this book questions how a calculating, cold-blooded killer could be found not guilty on grounds of insanity, and how our country's bail laws could let an ordinary family down so disastrously. Raw, moving and thought-provoking, Christie is ultimately a personal and loving memoir, written in tribute to a daughter taken too soon.

About Tracey Marceau

Tracey Marceau was born in Kent, England, and moved to Auckland with her parents at a young age. She worked for many years as an office manager for a civil engineering company on Auckland's North Shore, where she and her husband, Brian, raised their daughters Heather and Christie. In 2011, Tracey was thrust into the media spotlight when Christie was killed in their family home by a teenager who was free on bail. Two months earlier, he had kidnapped Christie and threatened her with a knife. After Christie died, Tracey spearheaded a campaign aimed at strengthening bail laws and preventing further deaths. Tracey and Brian now live in Australia, with Christie's dog Chief.
