Excellent story! Sad but true.

From back cover:

"When high school sweethearts Karen and Richard Sharpe married, they shared an interest in medicine, a desire for family, and a dream for the future. For Karen, that dream became a nightmare. After years of abuse at the hands of her physician husband, she tried to end their 27-year marriage.

A sad tale indeed. Even though a victim of abuse myself I cannot see me killing anyone...sure when in a rage it pops into eveyone's head but to actually do it takes a very sick person indeed.

My prayers and sympthay to all family involved in this awful ordeal. And for Richard....Shame on you! You are where you belong with the rest of the scum on the planet...I hope your anal orifice is no longer intact.

This book had a local appeal for me, but no really worth the read. Yes the names and places were familiar, but the author gave very little description of people or places other than the Richard and Karen. The rest of the book read like a gossip magazine. A tragic story that was not given the book needed to tell the story.

A true crime book that was well written. I really don't have a whole lot to say about this book because all true crime books read about the same to me. I would def recommend reading this if you like these type of books though.

This is one of the strangest case I have ever read about. John Glatt did an excellent job in trying to put all of the pieces together.
