This book deals with a man that hates his wife and involves a mistress that helps find a hitman to deal with the problem. Kicker is that her ex-lover gets killed too in the hit.

This was an ok true crime novel, although I'm probably not the best judge of that as I don't read a lot of true crime books in general. I was very disappointed by the 9 pages of "stunning" photos that were included, finding them quite dull. I did find it interesting to see how the trial played out though.

I'd have to call this a must read for any real true crime fan. I read this a lot of years ago and I still remember details about this man and his mistress.
