A dogged but poor effort by Salerno (TNS: The Newest Profession, 1985) to pump melodrama into the slaying of Price Daniel, Jr. Scion of Texas governor and US Senator Price Daniel, S. young Price shocked family and community first by failing in politics, then by divorcing his thoroughbred wife and marrying a local Dairy Queen waitress: a choice that proved fatal.

Steve Salerno is an American nonfiction author, essayist and educator best known for his 2005 critique of the self-help movement, SHAM: How the Self-help Movement Made American helpless. In the book, Salerno argues that far from being a merely an innocuous fad, self-help in recent decades has done significant damage to the American social fabric.

ALTERED STATE was the formation in which vocalist Norman Kiersznowski, known in the metal world as Ski, were active after his retirement from the US legend DEADLY BLESSING. Six demo songs plus four rehearsals from the early 1990s are included on this masterpiece, which was released years ago on CD under the title 'Winter Warlock'.

I live and deliver mail in this community and had now idea this all happened. It was mentioned in community newspaper and decided to have it. I like history.

Excellent book. As a result of reading this book, I later got to meet State District Court Judge Leonard Giblin of Beaumont, Texas, who was imported to Liberty, Texas to ultimately try Vicki Daniel for murder.
By coincidence the grandparents of my best friend lived in Liberty when all this happened. They, like most people there, don't believe Vicki's allegations about Price Daniel Jr's abuse of her. A lot of people there did not like this book nor the ABC-TV movie that later aired that was based on the book. They believe that both were based on lies and Deceptions.

Price Daniel was the son of the former US Senator and Texas Gov Price Daniel Sr.
The younger Daniel divorced wife #1 and married wife #2 who was evidently the gal who served him his melloream soft serve cones at the local DQ. Is there anything more Texan than meeting your wife at the DQ? Evidently it was too far to drive to Baby Dolls or the nearest local Sugar's cabaret. Then again, cruising locales like that is best left to big name national Democratic politicians like Clinton or the late Senator Kennedy.
I spoze had this nimrod been a bit more selective he could have easily carried on the dynasty to become the Lone Star equivalent of the Kennedys.
Vickie Daniel's testimony about the dead man's sexcapades and fetishes were of course not rebutted by the deceased. She was an intensely sympathetic character in the era before either Gennifer Flowers, Paula Corbin-Jones or Jessica Hahn. Her defense attorney's skill rivaled that of OJ's. And unlike OJ I believe the former Mrs Daniel went on to live the rest of her life out of the limelight and out of jail.

I personally found this book to be a good documentation of the death of Price Daniel Jr. and the subsequent events that followed. Vickie Daniel,the wife of Price Daniel Jr. was charged with murdering her husband Price Daniel Jr. Ganiel had been a State Representative and had also served as the Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives. He was defeated by Mark White in a race for Attorney General. His father had served as Governor of Texas. Vickie was put on trial for the murder of her husband. She was represented by the Haines firm. This was a spectacular trial that eventually wound up with Vickie's acquittal. She was next taken to court by the Daniels family over her children.She was once again represented by the Haines fir, The Daniels family were represented by J.K. Zeke Zbranek(who now serves as a District Judge in Liberty County). Once again Vickie Daniels emerged victorious. This is a very interesting book that you can really get into. Read it.

I vaguely remember hearing of the junior Price Daniel (son of former Texas Governor Price Daniel Sr.) being shot and killed by his wife in 1981. I live a couple of hundred miles north of Liberty, but I am in East Texas nonetheless. A TV movie about Price and Vickie Daniel prompted me to read this book and I found it to be an easy, interesting read.

I'm glad that Vickie Daniel had secret sympathizers who wanted to help her beat the "good ole boy" system that was firmly behind the prominent Daniel family. Price, Jr., was obviously a spoiled, abusive jerk who would have been painted as a saint if his sister, father et al had had their way. Thankfully, Houston big shot attorney Racehorse Haynes was brought in to level the karma.

I'm not saying Price Daniel, Jr. deserved to be shot and killed. But Vickie Daniel did not deserve to be railroaded if the shooting was truly an accident. And how stupid was it of the Daniel family to try and get custody of Vickie's kids before she had even been tried for murder? Maybe the words for that is stupid arrogance.

This story can be read on several levels. On its face, it is a top-notch example of the true-crime genre, from an era when true crime was still king in nonfiction. But it also has its points to make about men, ambition, and the singular Texas mindset. I wanted more in spots (more context, it sometimes had a bit of a condensed feel to it) but even as it is, I can certainly see how this got made into a TV movie: 1992's Deadly Blessing. Just a classic story line. Highly recommended to anyone who likes a great read!

A bit fragmented. It was hard to keep up with the characters. There seemed to be lapse in information in many instances. Relevant as historical documentation.
