Great book. Hard to imagine how a wife could so brutally murder someone she had loved at one time.
I'm still left wondering how anybody could be as stupid as this woman was. One thing to kill your husband as brutally as she did, another thing to be a terrible liar. Still shaking my head at this one.
I read true crime books for the attorney & courtroom action. I rated this book a 9 for entertainment value & a 7 for attorney & courtroom action.
Kind of disappointing - I was left with more questions than answers when I finished the book. Seems like the author rushed to be the first to profit from the crime.
A woman who after four years in an abusive marriage came unglued one night.
An intertesting read. The prosecution had a very strong case. Enjoyed the jurors conclusions on how they reached their unamous verdict.
It is sad that she couldn't find divorce a better alternative. Now her children have lost a father and mother as well.

WHO WAS SUSAN WRIGHT?
AND WHAT DID SHE DO ON
THAT VIOLENT WINTER NIGHT?
Susan Wright was a victim...who admitted to killing her
husband,Jeffery,in their Harrris County home in 2003, by
stabbing him to death in self-defense.She recounted a
harrowing tale of domestic abuse,one that the raging mother
of two finally brought to an end-HER way.
BUT PROSECUTORS HAD
A STORY OF THEIR OWN...
Susan Wright was a seductress...who set the mood for kinky
sex with her unsuspecting husband.After tying Jeffery to the
bed,Susan straddled him,stabbed him 193 times with a butcher
knife,then buried his body in a makeshift grave in their backyard.
JUSTICE WOULD NOT COME EASY.
THE FURY WAS JUST BEGINNING.
The bloodstained theatrics that unfolded in the Houston
courtroom would stun jurors,make national headlines,and
brand Susan Wright as both a desperate martyr on the edge
and a brutal killer who would be brought to justice.
A Great Book,read it in 1 day!!
I literally read this book in a few hours--could not put it down. Fascinating and disturbing.
An interesting true crime account of a murder and trial of a wife who stabbed her husband 193 times.
A fed up woman claims to have been abused. She kills her husband and claims self defense. I am having a hard time with this story. Me being a man is in no way taking up for the husband because this story co7uld have happened the way she said, or it may not have.... decisions decisions
Susan Wright admitted to killing her husband Jeffrey in their Harris County home in 2003. She claimed to have stabbed him to death in self
defense. Her claim was that she suffered long term domestic abuse.
Susan, the mother of two young children claimed to have not only been fearful for her life but for the lives of her children. Finally she decided that the abuse was going to end... her way.
It may seem that I myself am doubtful of her claims even after reading the book from front to back, maybe I am doubtful, its hard to determine wether or not she was telling the truth. That is just my opinion. This is a must read book. Your opinion may differ but we won't know until you read it.
She has the looks of an angel, the heat of a demon and the brains that god gave a wooden goose. This is a must read book
This is "The Book" of all true crime books.
Susan Wright claimed to be a victime of abuse,
it was never proven. She did u thinkable acts
to her husband, continuing to do so even after
he was dead. It is a great book
Once again, truth is much stranger.... A young mother goes totally berserke and stabs her supposedly abusive husband about 200 times. His body, discovered a week later in the back yard where she had buried it, still had ties around wrists and ankles showing he had been tied to the bed frame. The bloody mattress was also in the yard. After a week of sleeplessness and frenzied attempts to cover up the murder the wife breaks and seeks legal help. When she goes to trial, we're introduced to a fascinating prosecutor, a female attorney in the Houston, TX DA's office, who has been named one of the country's best lawyers. The writer does an excellent job of showing different points of view and possibilities as he presents this unbelievable case. The wife, who claimed long-time spousal abuse,is portrayed as a victim pushed off the edge of sanity. It was hard to put this book down.
This book kept me hooked - a real page turner. I recommend this book to any fan of true crime books!
The story of Susan Wright and a marriage that ended in murder
True crime, wife kills husband, was she really fearful for her life and the life of her children?
