On Christmas Day 1977, Jerry Davies led Madison, Wisconsin police to a snowbank concealing the corpse of Harry Berge. By the day after Easter, Davies lay dead in his bathtub, an apparent suicide. The link between the two was their shared love for Barbara Hoffman, a former honor student and massage parlor queen who had enlisted Davies's aid in removing Berge's body from her apartment. In recounting the complexities of the case, which riveted the community for two and a half years, Harter reveals an eye for the gruesome detail and ironic twist, but when the verdicts are in, Hoffman, and the mens' deaths, seem destined to remain mysteries. Recommended for large true crime collections and libraries serving areas where media coverage was intense.
