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 husband was REALLY a cold-blooded killer! Great true crime!!
By, 1998, Jill and Jeff Cahill's marriage was already over. With a divorce pending, his life was in shambles. Then, a pre-dawn argument between them came to an end when Jeff crushed her skull with a baseball bat. Fearing her testimony in an assault trial, he slipped unnoticed into her hospital room and have her a deadly dose of cyanide, killing her instantly. It took the jury only 5 hours to find him guilty.
Excellent author, she keeps your attention from the first to last page.
If you love crime stories, you will love this. A story of greed
He tryed to murder her once and when he failed he found his way to her hospital bed to finish the job. Good Book
Very interesting book, kept me page turning.
good book but very sad though
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????
