Not too bad as far as true crime goes, but I think that the author sort of waffled a bit...really building up with dramatic details the guilt of the suspect, then at the end of the book, he writes a sort of wishy washy "did he? or didn't he?" epilogue.

I read this book because I work in hospitals and I've met arrogant, completely socially inept doctors like the doctor who killed his wife in this book.
There are a lot of arrogant, narcissistic people out there and it only stands to reason that someone who feels they have dominion over life and death would eventually kill someone they could not control. Interesting personality study!

'They appeared to have the perfect marriage-But did it become the perfect crime?" A True Story Of Obsession, Rage, and murder. The biggest questions to me-first of all why and especially HOW? This book is a real page turner and holds onto you.
