From the back cover: "Nancy Lyon had everything to live for. Wealth, a prosperous career, a loving family. Suddenly her world was torn apart. Rushed to the hospital, she died days later in agony, a victim of arsenic poisoning.
Her husband, Richard, was convicted in a sensational murder trial that blew the lid off an explosive tale of incest, infidelity, drugs and titanic battles for money and power. But was he really guilty, or the victim of a colossal frame? In their zeal to nail Richard, police seemingly missed many details that might have exonerated him. Was it a bungled investigation-or did Nancy's father, the powerful William Dillard, Sr., shown thoughout Dallas as 'Big Daddy', use his infludence to pervert justice?
A shattering account that gives us a glimpse into the lifestyles and sins of the Texas rich and famous."
