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.

Barbara Kogan leaves you with a dreaded sick feeling in your...more
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.

This is the story of a rich man who was murdered by a hit man his wife hired.
