The true story of a psychopath who had his friend kill his unsuspecting parents and sister in order to inherit their wealth. He evaded prosecution for about seven years, but eventually got what he deserved, life in prison. What a scumbag.

Apparently I work with a woman who is middle-distantly related to this family. Now I have to read it. :)
