Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Though readers might pick up this title hoping to find out more about the private life of bestselling novelist Patricia Cornwell, the real protagonist is FBI agent Margo Bennett, who struck up a brief affair with Cornwell in 1992 after the author visited the training center where Bennett worked. When Margo's husband, also a Bureau agent, finds out about his wife's liaisons, he exacts a horrifying, meticulously plotted revenge, covering his tracks with lies and working the system against her. Though covered in the press, journalist and author Rother (Naked Addiction) presents the full story from Bennett's perspective for the first time. The narrative is engaging if a little slow to start (covering the early years of her marriage), and Rother is a fine interviewer, able to penetrate some of Bennett's most traumatic memories. Rother's prose is not the most graceful, and recreated dialogue can feel forced, but Bennett's tale is gripping, and should appeal to those who want to see a different, darker and more personal side of the lives of FBI agents.

    Almost too unbelievable!

    Caitlin Rother does an excellent job portraying Margo Bennett's plight. To think that this actually happens is frightening. Patricia Cornwell, admittedly one of my favorite authors, is not portrayed too favorably but can't say that I am surprised as I had always heard bits and pieces about her personal life. Still look forward to every new book she releases.

    Articulate story - impartial viewpoints

    Unless you have been in an abusive relationship it is truly hard to comprehend what a person must do to survive. ¿Twisted Triangle¿ by Caitlin Rother has shown how devastating that type of life can be. I applaud not only Margo Bennett¿s determination to survive an abusive husband and coming to terms with her sexual orientation but her willingness to share her story in the hopes of giving other the courage to do the same. Caitlin Rother has written a articulate story of Margo Bennett¿s struggles and given the impartial view point of each and everyone involved in the disturbing situation. With Rother¿s 20 year tenure as an investigative reporter and her newly developed skill as a thriller author, she has all the talent necessary to research all the facts of any non-fiction story and mold them into an intriguing and very readable novel

    I Also Recommend:

    The Best thing about this book? Is the cover....

    I was disappointed... A very poor piece of writing with a victim I wanted to feel sympathy for but found her not very likeable.
