Publisher's Summary

Twisted Triangle is the first complete narrative thriller about the sensational story of Margo Bennett, a married FBI agent who had a love affair with best-selling author Patricia Cornwell and whose jealous husband, Gene Bennet, a superstar FBI undercover agent, kidnapped and attempted to murder her. When the case first came to trial, it was reported in Vanity Fair, Newsweek, People, The Washington Post, and The New York Times.Almost every profile of Cornwell, written in the United States and abroad every time she releases a book, mentions this case and her relationship with Bennett. Margo was also the inspiration for the heroine in Hostage Negotiator, a 2001 TV movie.Opening up for the first time, Bennett has given Caitlin Rother complete personal access, sitting for interviews and turning over photographs, documents, records, and private papers. Twisted Triangle includes the crazy dynamics of Margo and Gene Bennett's family; the brilliant FBI undercover career of Margo's husband, Gene; the lesbian affair with celebrity author Pat Cornwell; Gene's reactive kidnapping and attempt to kill Margo; Gene's insanity defense; the trial that validates Margo's story and shows she was telling the truth all along; and a happy ending to her tale of survival.

Gripping and soul-searching

This book is very well read and provides a vivid insight into a family in a downward spiral and the amazing fortitude of a mother, who gives body and soul to save her children. There are many lessons here and it will be, in my opinion, a book that will live with you for a long time.

Truth is stranger than fiction!

I thought this story had many unexpected twists and turns -- and takes you inside the mind of a husband spurned. But not just any husband! A cunning husband with FBI training and the power to carry out multiple murder attempts.

If you thought your divorce was messy -- wait until you read this! It was a true crime roller coaster ride that kept me on the edge of my seat. I've read a lot of true crime and this is one of the more fascinating stories I'd read in a long time.

Great book

Good story line, good narrater, good author! Would definitely recommend. Having been slightly disappointed with my last two audiobooks, I was really happy to find one I could really get into. Finished this book within 2 days as I felt my self wanted to listen to it at any chance I got.
