This was an interesting story. However I felt it was poorly organized. It takes the reader forward and backward repeatedly.

In 1988 Jill and Jeffs Cahills marrage was over, a divorce was pending and he felt as if his life was in shambles.
A pre dawn argument between them ended with an aluminum baseball. He feared that since he surived the blow, that once she testified against him in an assault trial, he would be ruined for life. So he decided to sneak into her hospital room and ended her life with potassium cyanide, killing her instantly.
This was one of the most passionate and furious debates about the death penalty in New Yorks History, leaving Jills family grief stricken family and surviors to wonder.

This is a well written book and I enjoyed it very much. It goes into the depth of the circumstances and I always enjoy that. Do people actually "break" or are they just psycho-paths with an excuse.......
I recommend it!!

I am a fan of the true crime genre, and in that sense liked the book but the writing is a bit scattered and some of the information was confusing, i.e. a name would pop up in the book without any explanation of who it was.

He like to killed her twice in front of their two kids and admits the crime, is free on bail, goes to court, gets the death penalty, then there is an appeal....stay tuned to see what happens in this astonishing tale...he tries to kill her twice?....he is free on bail??? He escapes the death penalty, or does he????
