Publisher's Summary

On March 14, 2012 Don McNeely sat next to his wife of 27 years, Linda, as she lay sleeping. After contemplating her fate for over two hours, he pulled his Ruger Blackhawk .41 magnum and shot her in the chest, killing her instantly. As police raced to the scene he called his children seeking their forgiveness. He told police that his wife suffered from terminal brain cancer and over the course of the previous months, on numerous occasions she had begged him to shoot her. As the case unfolded in the Seattle media, he was hailed a hero; a man brave enough to end the suffering of the love of his life. Death...with dignity. Within days, witnesses began to contact police doubting his claims that she wanted to be killed. The happy, loving couple portrayed in the news couldn't be further from truth.
Was it mercy? Or murder? Would justice be served?

The story was very well told and kept me interested the WHOLE time. I cannot praise the author enough for telling such a heart-wrenching story so well.

Tragic, true story! Excellently told!

Would you listen to For She Know Not What She Does again? Why?

No, not the kind of story that once its told, you need to hear again.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It was very interesting how it went from liking the husband-- to despising him.

Have you listened to any of Charles Ahl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When I realized that this-- well I don't want to spoil it!

Any additional comments?

This was a well researched and convincing argument that assisted suicide is not always what it seems. This was a great story and as a true-crime fan I absolutely loved it! The facts seem very clear in this story and no matter how you may feel about assited suicide-- this was NOT-- this was clearly murder!
