I read this so long ago that I can't remember much more than the basics. I bought this the other day and when I received it in the mail realized I'd already read it.
Glatt is one of the better true-crime writers out there IMO and this, while the story isn't the most outrageous, is very interesting.
The fact that this woman was a professional, intelligent woman, and still did what she did leads to some interesting questions.

ook Description
Greg DeVillers was a top biotech executive, and Kristen Rossum was embarking on a career in toxicology at the San Diego Medical Examiner's office. They seemed to be happily married, living the American dream. But only months shy of their second anniversary, Kristen found her handsome husband dead from a drug overdose-his corpse sprinkled with rose petals. By his side was their wedding photo. The scene was reminiscent of American Beauty, one of Kristen's favorite movies. Authorities deemed it a suicide.Until they discovered that the rare poison found in Greg's body was the same poison missing from Kristen's office. Until they discovered the truth about Kristen's lurid affair, about her own long-time drug addiction, and about the personal and professional secrets she would kill to keep hidden-secrets that would ultimately expose the beautiful blonde as the deadly beauty she really was....a Deadly American Beauty
