This is an excellent book. It is well researched and well written. The story of a man who had most everything in life, and who had a child born with multiple handicaps. He seemed to deal with it really well and then something went terribly wrong. Such a powerful story and the author is a wonderful writer. I'm sure that anyone would enjoy this book.
This book was a true account of a man who took the lives of his family, 3 children and wife, and got away with it only to remarry and live on to have another child. He claimed he was mentally ill, he was also an upstanding man of the community, a lawyer, so he was not stupid by no means, you will need to read and decide for yourself if this was a well layed out plan for some time in his mind, or was he really mentally ill when he did this? I am still thinking on this conclusion & will not spoil the soup by telling you which way i am leaning. It was very well written and quite a page turner.
