A LIFE OF LIES

Devoted wife, loving mother, family-business owner—Barbara George seemed to have it all. But little did she know that her husband, Michael, was harboring a secret that would someday tear her family, and her whole world, apart…

A COLD-BLOODED CRIME

Barbara and Michael ran a Detroit-area comic book shop, where Renee Kotula was an employee—and Michael’s lover. Their torrid affair took a shocking turn when one night Barbara was found dead at the shop, a bullet through her skull. Did Michael kill his wife so that he could collect her life insurance policy…and run off with Renee?

A MURDER MYSTERY

With no weapon or witnesses, the police weren’t able to arrest Michael…until, eighteen years later, a new district attorney reopened the case and found overlooked evidence that placed him at the scene of the crime. Michael was finally arrested. But after a jury found him guilty of murder, the judge overturned his case. Why? As Michael awaits a second trial, many are left to wonder if justice will ever be served for the woman who is DEAD BUT NOT FORGOTTEN.

The bulk of this book is fillled with trial transcripts even in a "Day 1", "Day 2", et cetera, style You will find yourself skipping at least 100 pages. You really don't feel like you know the players and not sure if author actually interviewwed anyone personally. My book ended at page 258. WOW! If that is where the author actually ended the book and not a technical problem on the download, it is really awful and getting a refund. Actualljy I believe it was the end. The index onlu lists the 38 chapters. Trye crime fans, I eiuld pass on this one!

The story flows along well and keeps the reader's interest, until the last chapter or so. The fact that the book ends without a clear conclusion court case keeps me from rating it any higher than 3 stars. In the end, the Author, Forgot Barbara George; that for me is deplorable. It would have been better to hold off on publishing this book, instead of creating an awkward cliff hanger.

I found the story fascinating, well-written and compelling. Amber Hunt is a gifted writer and is definitely one to watch. I was left wanting to know more details, and I found it difficult to put the book down. The key people were brought to life for me in a way which explained their behavior. It's clear why Dateline chose to feature this crime story in one of their 2 hour episodes. I appreciate Amber Hunt's insightful and comprehensive coverage of this tragedy.
