Letters from Christopher

Tragic Confessions of the Watts Family Murders

Cheryln Cadle

In the early morning hours of August 13, 2018, in the small, quiet Colorado town of Frederick, after murdering his family, Chris Watts calculatingly and coldly put his girls in oil battery tanks and buried his pregnant wife in a shallow grave, then returned to work like nothing happened.

Chris ultimately pled guilty to the murders, and he is currently serving multiple life sentences. While in prison, Chris receives tons of mail—from family and friends but also fans. Author Cheryln Cadle decided that, after a calling from God, she would write to Chris and ask him if she could write a book about his story. Surprisingly, he wrote back.

After a few back-and-forth letters, Chris sent the paperwork to Cheryln to be put on the visitors’ list. She then visited him and they talked about her writing a book. After visiting him, he told Cheryln he wanted to tell her his confessions in writing because he felt their conversations were being recorded. He has revealed things to her that no one else knows, not even the FBI. Some of these details will be completely shocking for you to hear.

Letters from Christopher is a true crime story with important information to put the pieces of the puzzle together for inquiring minds. Read herein the completely truthful account of what happened to Shanann, Bella, Celeste, and Nico Watts.

    Waste of money!

    I did not read any new information that the author had promised during her many interviews! Also how insulting that she couldnt even spell Shannann's parents laat name correctly! The book is all over the place. At times i didnt know if they were Chris' thoughts or hers! Waste of money!

    Book did not provide any new information that wasn’t already in the media. Horrible and confusing timeline. Poorly written.

    Excellent Read!

    Kept me flipping the pages, even though I knew all the details of the case. Good job at condensing the information and not trying to sway the reader or allow any excuses to be made.

    I think the author did a great job with this book. I did have some grammar issues but besides that its very good. I literally could not pur this book down. The story of the Watts murders has intrigued me. With Christopher Watts himself telling his story to the author is what truly compelled me to buy this book. I look forward to Ms Cadle's next book

    I hate myself for buying this book

    Posted by Ruth-Anne on Oct 17th 2019

    I bought this book thinking that it would have new information, as I had listened to an interview with the Author. It does not. It is scrambled and poorly written in my opinion.
