On October 4, 1983, when paramedics arrived at the home of Rozanne Gailiunas, the estranged wife of a prominent Dallas physician, they were not prepared for the grisly sight. While her preschool son played in another room, Rozanne's strangled, bullet-ridden body lay spreadeagled on a bed with the appendages methodically tied down. Although Rozanne's boyfriend, Larry Aylor, was questioned, no evidence linked him to the crime. The murder remained unsolved until an unlikely informant tipped detectives that Aylor's former wife, Joy, arranged for the killing. This meticulously detailed book follows the convoluted murder case and tracks the lengthy trial of the contract murderer. Joy Aylor fled to France, where she was eventually located and incarcerated. Too many names, events, and unnecessary details permeate this chronologically arranged account that rarely penetrates the personalities of the principal players. Nevertheless, those familiar with the case as well as true-crime junkies generally should relish Englade's evenhanded reporting.
