When Vonlee "Nicole" Titlow and her aunt, Billie Jean Rogers, came home from a night of gambling in a casino near Detroit, they told police they found Billie's husband unconscious on the floor of the Rogers' mansion. Just another of his alcoholic benders, they assumed. But this time, Donald Rogers didn't wake up.
The investigation would reveal the sordid story behind the death of a self-made millionaire - including transgender adventures in Chicago and Denver, a tangled web of dueling addictions, a mind-boggling history of out-of-control spending, and how a sex change operation may have fueled a motive for murder. Renowned investigative journalist M. William Phelps exposes the riveting details behind one of the most astonishing real-life thrillers to date.

Great book about the death of Don Rogers
Great book about the murder of Don Rogers by Billie Jean Rogers, aided by Vonlee Nicole Titlow. This case was anything but "normal". Very intense story, with the 3 main characters as different from each other as night and day. Phelps researched this very well and was able to convey all the necessary facts in a way for readers to understand what happened and the mind of one of the participants. I was sucked in really quick, from beginning to end, feeling emotionally attached to Vonlee Titlow. This book has become one of my favorites from Phelps and I am sure it will stay with me for a while. M. William Phelps has a way to draw you into the story he is trying to convey. He brings the characters to life. I loved this book.
