With extraordinary detail, Crier dissects the dangerous relationship between husband and wife, exposing their psychological motivations and the painful impact those motivations had on their sons, Adam, Eli, and Gabriel. Drawing on sources from all sides of the case, Crier masterfully reconstructs the tumultuous chronology of the Polk family, telling the story of how Susan and Felix struggled to control their rambunctious sons and their disintegrating marriage in the years and months leading up to Felix's death.
But the history of the Polk family is only half the story. Here Crier also elucidates the methodical police work of the murder investigation, revealing never-before-seen photos and writings from the case file. In addition, she carefully scrutinizes the many twists and turns of the remarkable trial, exploring Susan's struggles with her defense attorneys and her shocking decision to represent herself.
Dark, psychological, and terrifying, Final Analysis is a harrowing look at the recesses of the human mind and the trauma that reveals them.
"Definitive...[Crier's investigation] yielded information that never made it to the jury." (USA Today)

but its not something I would purchase again. It's a good story but its missing something. Maybe its just the voice of the reader. It would have been much better if more passion was used in the telling of the story.

just plain bad...
I rarely write these reviews, but I listen to a LOT of audiobooks, and this one was pretty baad! Just the story itself was stilted, the dialog sounds fake, and the narrator is not easy to listen to. I didn't even finish listening.
