This book was written by an Assistant District Attorney from Salt Lake City Utah named Howard Lemcke aka Howie, it is about one of his most memorable case. David Mead was pretending to be the grieving widower in the drowning death of his wife Pamela but turns out David killed her not out of hate or anger but solely for the purpose of financial gain. He left in his path of destruction 3 families that were destroyed as well as several people that he used and tried to manipulate to cover his tracks ...more

I didn't read this, but my friend is dating David Mead. He has her convinced that the only reason he was convicted is because of a bad defense attorney. She goes and visits him 2-3 times a week. For her safety, I hope he stays in prison and dies there.

I got really bored and skipped to the end to see if the husband got arrested or not.

This book was informative about the whole process of trial law but I found it boring until the end.

To the stokes family I hope you have some sort of peace and justice although your loss was significant.

To David I hope in 2016 they laugh in your face throw u in a dark hole and let u rot for eternity because that is what you deserve. May the devil torture you for eternity and what's left of your soul if u ever had one be crushed underfoot.

Shelves: didn-t-finish
It was too uninteresting to finish. It just goes on and on and on - but since the author is a lawyer - that's the nature of the genre. I guess I was expecting it to be more eventful / exciting.
Maybe I'll start from where I left off - if I ever get really bored.

I read this book for book club this month as my friend works with the author of this book, Mr. Lemcke.

Shelves: shameful, yawn, own, true-crime
Somehow Howie Lemcke makes a scandalous murder and subsequent trial boring and tedious.

Some readers will like the law insight that's pertained in this book vs most true crime books.

I know the author and some of the characters through an old job--which made it interesting to me. I think it was well written.

I had a hard time getting into this book but once I got a couple chapters read it was easier to read. Very good book for true crime readers.

Yikes, I couldn't read this true crime book. It wasn't very well written and I quickly lost interest.
