“OBSCURITY is the 6th and final narrative in the Jodi Arias series examining a crime that rattled America and the world. True Crime maestro Lisa Wilson and freelance photojournalist Nick van der Leek are back one last time with their conclusions to this crazy yet heart-wrenching case.
In the first five narratives the authors emphasized several themes that played into the undercurrents of Jodi Arias. There was audacity, there was brazen mendacity, a lack of authenticity, vanity and the obscenities of a chameleon coming into her own. But the real root of this murder is a battle for significance. Jodi, dying on the inside, is not prepared to just fade away. Travis, although outwardly confident with his friends, on the inside is also plagued with feelings of inadequacy and questioning his own worth. The essence of this narrative, make no mistake, is ‘social death.’ When faced with OBSCURITY one is forced to make a decision: step out or step back. Thrive or die. On June 4th, 2008 Jodi made that decision for the both of them.
Hold onto your hats because in OBSCURITY the authors boldly tackle the Law of Attraction along with the central role it played in both Jodi’s and Travis’ life and death struggle. What did it give them, what did it get them and eventually what did it take from them? More than any of us imagined! ” -Amazon.com
