Another interesting true crime. After 20 years of investigation, money gone, and health deterioration, a plea bargain finally captures the wife. The actual shooter was never caught. So much more interesting too me than fiction
Cathy Scott's The Millionaire's Wife is a true story of George Kogan death and his betrayal of his wife, Barbara Kogan. This investigation went on for more than 20 years. A exciting read that lets you into the minds of many who were involved. Barbara Kogan, still has no remorse in how her husband died. The devastating hurt that was left on both sides of the family for all those years of unsettled emotions is still very raw to this day. Barbara Kogan leaves you with a dreaded sick feeling in your ...more

Starts off okay, but ends up getting fragmented and disjointed.
The usual story of money, greed, and sex. However, it took a long time to come to trial so the wife early got away with it.
I almost gave it 5 stars, but something held me back. It was really well written and shared a lot of facts. I just wish it wouldn't have glamourized Kogan's affair so much and his mistress. But it was a pretty fair portrayal to both parties.
This is the story of a rich man who was murdered by a hit man his wife hired.
