This is the first book I've read by this author, and I loved it! It was a real page turner for me. What started out as a typical murder trial, turned into a unique yet gripping defense strategy. A great read.
I found this story to be fascinating, well-written & I could barely put it down. I don't want to give away the ending but the court room scenes were true to life. It's the story of a society woman accused of killing her Senator husband with a lethal injection of insulin. From the beginning, she insists she's innocent yet only she & her huband were in the bedroom together...or were they? Some very true & interesting facts come out in the trial. I was so intrigued that I looked them up on line & found them to be accurate. This is a very interesting murder mystery & I highy recommend it.
This is an absolutely fascinating story. I thought it took a long time to get to the meat of the story, but upon more reflection I think most of it was necessary to set the stage for the stunning conclusion. I too have done some internet searching because I had never heard of such a thing and apparently it's real. Anyway, it's a very interesting and readable book.
