This book has been on my shelf for years. Maybe a decade even.
I am reading it now and enjoying it.

Update: June 22 2012.
Finished it this morning and I must say I enjoyed reading this.

The writing style was one I liked. Maybe other people thought it was slow. It is a lot about how the cops were preparing for the trial, but I did not mind that at all. (The end was a bit of a let down but hey, not the author's fault) Other observations: I would have liked to know more about his friends, the ones that

This book takes sensationalism to a whole new level! It was downright repulsive. I felt like I was reading the Enquirer and needed a shower after every chapter. There was no sticking to the facts, no effort to remain balanced or unbiased, which I consider to be the hallmarks of proper true-crime writing. It was narrated in multiple first person voices, which made almost 90% of the material debatable in truth and at times seemed to delight in the poor young woman's tragic death at the hands of he ...more

Shocking Book!! From back cover: "Inside a beautiful house in Philadelphia's ritzy Main Line section lay the body of a young mother, dead of an apparent drowning in her bathtub. With no sign of a break-in, no history of marital problems, and the naive belief that these things sometimes just happen, Stefanie Rabinowitz's family prepared to bury the 29-year-old wife and mother. But at the eleventh hour, because Stefanie was so young, and because there were no witnesses to her death, an autopsy was ...more

Well...I learned if you're going to kill your wife and make it look like she drowned in the bathtub, you might want to take off her jewelry first. It's a lot easier than trying to convince police she always bathed wearing her watch. "Oh that old watch. It was a piece of junk. Of course she wore it in the tub." As for the rest of the story, it was OK. Murders on the Main Line always seem to get made into books. How else would Bruce Castor be so famous? I think this is the 7th book I've read where ...more

Evil Has Many Faces!

A well written true crime story which vividly captured what a wolf in sheep's clothing looks like. To have fooled so many people close to the killer without an ounce of him feeling any remorse boggles the mind. So sad for the child when she learns why her Mom was taken away by the hands of her father.
