I love true crime books but this has to be the most boring true crime book I have ever read in my life. It was very badly formatted for Kindle and it was just all facts and quotes really. There was no real story and to be honest the ending summed up the entire book in like 2 pages which could have just saved me a lot of time if I just read that.

Alas if the verdict appeased the families I guess that's good enough for me. My heart goes to the families robbed of such beautiful women and to the poor children that had to be put through ...more
Very fast read - a story of a successful dentist who murders his wife, in the same way that he murdered his girlfriend while in dental school fourteen years previously. The old murder was classified as a suicide, and he thought he could get way with it a second time. After he killed his wife, which no one believed was a suicide, the original murder was brought into light, and he was convicted of both murders.
