I managed to read this book in only 2 days because it was absolutely fascinating and I couldn't put it down. Ellen Harris managed to capture this intriguing case in a well-written manner.

Grim, sad story set during the 1980s MBA Avalanche, about an amazingly cold man who married a woman higher up in the financial heirarchy than he was, then killed her for her money.

Usually the cover of a book says "shocking photos!" and you open it to find smiling studio portraits of all the judges and attorneys involved, plus baby pictures of the killer. You won't have that experience with this book.

I read this a long long time ago- when I worked at the Endicott Library as a teenager. I read it like a morality tale and took it to heart. I credit it with ensuring I will always be a feminist and teaching me I am better off alone then with the wrong man. Sadly, Ms. Miller Bulloch's husband was found guilty of killing her but his sentence was shockingly lenient.

This was a hard book to read due to the subject. Good true crime book but so heartbreaking.

Very good true crime story about a vulnerable woman and the egotistical narcsisist she fell in love with.
