Publisher's Summary

Iowa housewife Tracey Pittman Roberts seemed to have it all: natural beauty, three loving children, and a fairy-tale second marriage to a wealthy, handsome businessman. But beneath the happy façade was a woman who used lies, manipulation, sex, ugly allegations, blackmail - and even murder - to serve her own selfish ends.
On December 12, 2001, police rushed to Tracey's home after a shooting left her vulnerable young neighbor dead. Tracey claimed it was an act of self-defense. Nine gunshot wounds - and a decades-long trail of extortion, fabrication, fraud, and intimidation - said otherwise. Ten years after the crime, Tracey's case finally went to trial in an explosive courtroom showdown. In a searing exploration of the criminal mind, best-selling investigative journalist M. William Phelps traces the saga of a psychopath who hid in plain sight - until her wicked ways caught up with her.

Really bad book

No doubt the woman who is the subject of this book was guilty. The book itself, though, along with the narration, are terrible. It's more like a National Enquirer type story rather than an an in-depth telling of a terrible crime. The snide editorial comments, along with the vocal inflections of the narrator are genuinely disappointing. I suggest that, if you wish to read/listen to exceptional books about real crime stories that you look to the many outstanding ones written by Joe McGinnis.
