Just finished ~Afraid of the Dark~ by Henderson.  I must have seen this crime on Dateline or 48 Hours and I thought the book was really well written.  It's about Mark Unger and his wife Flo who died falling off a boat dock while they were on vacation. .  The author went into a lot of detail about their lives and that's what I want in a good true crime book.

Thanks Nicki for recommending this book. I have it in my TBR pile and really want to read it. This crime occurred in my state and I followed the trial. Another book that may interest you is Limb from Limb by Melissa Presley. That crime took place in my county and was quite the story around here for many months. I read A Slaying in the Suburbs about the crime and now want to read this one.

I have Limb from Limb on my wish list but it hasn't shown up yet.  I recently read ~Slaying in the Suburbs~and it was a good book.  I saw one of the crime tv programs about that crime also.

I also recently read A Slaying In The Suburbs. It was very good.
