Christie: A Family's Tragic Loss and a Mother's Fi
by Tracey Marceau

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.
