On the night of 11-9-94, as an unsuspecting Farah stepped out of her car, a man wearing a black ski mask emerged from the backyard and pumped 2 lethal bullets into her head. Her estranged husband is accused, but he has an alibi...or does he?
Everyone who knew them thought stunning Farah Fratta and her husband Robert, a firefighter and public safety officer, had it all-a solid nine year marriage,three beautiful children, and a comfortable house in a middle class Houston suburb.But behind closed doors,Robert's deviant sexual appetites trapped Farrah in a world of sick perversit,until she filed for divorce in 1992..........very good book!!!
This was a very good book, hard to put down. Bill Cox is a very good author
Interesting and sad case.
This guy was a sick pervert.
I read this book twenty plus years after this incident occurred upon learning that my daughter and grandchildren lived in the same neighborhood as the Frattas. It is hard to imagine a more disgusting individual than Bob Fratta and in addition, he was a pompous, self-absorbed know-it-all. The things he forced his wife to do in order to spice up his sex life are beyond sickening. I feel so much sorrow for Farah Fratta, her children and her parents. She truly had no safe place and certainly did not deserve to die. I discovered one bright spot in this sad, sordid event. Upon googling Robert Fratta I found that 12 years into his prison sentence and while awaiting execution he committed suicide. The reason? Inmates were holding him down and defecating on him - the very same action he forced his wife to perform and the reason she divorced him. Justice was served.
The one place a person should be safe is in their own home. No so for Farah Fratta! Because she wouldn't continue to submit to her husband's bazaar sexual demands, she had filed for divorce and custody of their three children. During the divorce proceedings, Farah had to described to a judge just what those bazaar sexual demands of her husband were. In doing so, Farah sealed her fate. Robert, her husband, was determined to silence her...permanently!!! Of course, he wanted someone else to do the 'dirty' work so he could have an alibi for the critical time frame. But that didn't stop the Harris County Texas investigative team from determining the truth! An excellent read!
