The true story of the Milo Murder. Dea Milo was a phenomenally sucessful business man who had built a tiny family business into a $50 million a year corporation. Along the way he had established a lengthly list of enemies that began with his immediate family. On August 11, 1980, Milo was found dead in his luxurious home, shot twice in the head. A blank telegram form lay nearby.

I always find Carlton Stowers' writing clear and easy to follow and this was no exception. The combo of first-hand information from private detective, Wm. Dear, who solved the case, and Stowers clarity made a very satisfying read. While the case is less than fascinating for motivation - which was simply family jealousy - it has dozens of twists and turns. There is an almost Keystone Kops flavor to the many attempts to secure a hit man and get this poor victim wiped out. It is hard to imagine how many dozen conversations took place in how many dozen seedy bars before a genuine bad guy took advantage of this opportunity to make a few bucks and wipe out an unsuspecting victim. It's a pretty good read for true crime buffs.
