Publisher's Summary

In 2007, Dr. Martin MacNeill - a doctor, lawyer, and Mormon bishop - discovered his wife of 30 years dead in the bathtub of their Pleasant Grove, Utah, home, her face bearing the scars of a facelift he had persuaded her to undergo just a week prior. At first the death of 50-year-old Michele MacNeill, a former beauty queen and mother of eight, appeared natural. But days after the funeral, when Dr. MacNeill moved his much younger mistress into the family home, his children grew suspicious.
Conducting their own investigation into their mother's death, the MacNeill daughters uncovered their father's multiple marital affairs, past criminal record, and falsified college transcripts he used to con his way into medical school. It would take six long years to solve the mystery of Michele's murder and secure a first-degree murder conviction against the once prominent doctor.
New York Times best-selling author Shanna Hogan delves into the high-profile case, unmasking the monster beneath the doctor's carefully concocted facade.

The story of a true psychopath

I always listen to audiobooks while cleaning the house and I found myself looking for extra chores to do so that I could continue listening to this story. From start to finish this book had so many shocking , unbelievable parts that it seems impossible it could be non-fiction. But it is !
If you enjoy shows such as Dateline and 48hours you will thoroughly enjoy this author's in depth telling of this tale .

Unfortunately This is True!

This was a VERY interesting true crime book. I personally had never heard of this prior to reading reviews. A novelist could not have come up with a better plot. It is terrifying to know this story exists. The key to this story was the red flags that the wife ignored even before marrying. As well, the husband was a very smart man. Too bad he used his genius for evil. I wonder if a move was ever made. After reading this, I Googled all the family members and some of their outcomes were so tragic. The saga this man created is like a curse. Very sad!
