Wealthy Men Only

Stella Sands

Nanette Johnston’s personal ad made it clear: “I know how to take care of my man if he knows how to take care of me.” Newport Beach millionaire Bill MacLaughlin made the fatal mistake of responding.

Within months, the gorgeous 28-year-old moved in with the middle-aged entrepreneur. Three years later, she began seeing another man on the side, a former NFL linebacker who took a job at a nearby nightclub. Three weeks later, MacLaughin would be dead.

He was found lying on the kitchen floor in a pool of blood. Nannette had an alibi—and a million-dollar life insurance policy on the victim. Police discovered she’d embezzled a small fortune from MacLaughlin’s business—but didn’t have enough evidence to charge her with murder. For years, the crime went unsolved—until new evidence brought the golddigger and her boyfriend back to the courtoom—in a sordid case of lust, betrayal, greed, and murder…

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Stella Sand and her true crime books…

THE DATING GAME KILLER

“Stella Sands’ true-crime The Dating Game Killer recounts in detail the horrific torture-murders of Rodney James Alcala, one of our nation’s most coldblooded serial killers. Ms. Sands presents the crimes and evidence with professional skill and objectivity, using the actual prosecutors and courtroom testimony to ‘make the case.’ But it is the real life voices of the victims’ many family members and their untold story (until now) of how they were forced to experience Justice delayed and Justice denied that truly chills us to the bone. A must read!” —Steve Hodel, New York Times bestselling author of Black Dahlia Avenger: A Genius for Murder, Detective Supervisor, LAPD Hollywood Homicide Division (ret.)

THE GOOD SON

“A truly heartbreaking saga…that ended in two brutal murders.” —Crime Magazine

MURDER AT YALE

 

“The book your won’t want to put down.” —Cosmopolitan

“If only it were fiction, this book would be one heck of a thriller… Sands covers the crime and investigation adeptly, but— even more intriguingly— she also captures the media frenzy that this case sparked.” —Crime Magazine

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

 

Balboa Coves

 

 

The Newport Beach area of Southern California isn’t for everyone. Curmudgeons and sourpusses will find paltry little to enjoy. But aside from devotees of those two marginal groups, most people agree that Newport Beach is about as close to paradise as it gets—regardless of how you choose to define “paradise.”

If it’s surf, sand, and sunbathing you’re after, the area is pure bliss. With ten miles of perhaps the cleanest beaches in the United States, it boasts the Pacific Ocean’s best breaks, especially between Newport Pier and the Santa Ana River. With mountain-size waves, the Wedge, at the extreme eastern end of Balboa Peninsula, offers some of the most breathtakingly unpredictable and insane bodysurfing and bodyboarding to be found anywhere in the world.

If it’s perfect weather you crave, the Mediterranean climate warms the soul as it mocks the rest of the country’s winter doldrums and cold-weather blues.

Hiking and bird-watching—indeed. Crystal Cove offers a must-walk wooded wilderness, while the estuary on Back Bay beckons birders from all over to observe ospreys, endangered brown pelicans, grebes, and egrets.

With their stunning views, eighteen-hole championship golf courses lure even the most golf-averse putters.

As if all that weren’t enough. Newport Beach has museums, farmers’ markets, trendy shops and restaurants, and lively nightlife. It’s a postcard-perfect playground by the sea.

And if you happen to be lucky enough to own a piece of this paradise, Balboa Coves is the place to be. An affluent community of charming bay-front homes, its sixty or so residences radiate luxury. Although they vary in layout, not one is size challenged and some boast over forty-five hundred square feet. A typical Balboa Coves property might include four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, one hundred–plus feet of azure-water frontage, a luxurious patio overlooking the bay, a private dock, and an oversized three-car garage. These houses are more than homes; each one is someone’s dream come true.

Like many upscale Newport Beach communities, Balboa Coves is gated. No one walks or drives into the neighborhood without a gate key or security card. This gives the residents a feeling of extra privacy and safety. But in an area where the crime rate is so low, one might wonder if such a precaution was really necessary.

And it wasn’t. Tranquility and uninterrupted peace reigned each and every day in this secluded enclave—well, at least it did until December 15, 1994.

    Hard to put down

    Well written and hard to put down. I skipped through some of the trial pages since it was mainly repeating but overall loved it.

    This is a very well written book, no dull moments and is not drawn out like some books .. Nanette most of all deserves what she got !! Shes evil, greedy etc. I cant stand her !! Her lover is just stupid and deserves what he got, heck anyone who associates with her should be locked up !! .. my heart goes to victim and family, it broke my heart n brought tears when i read what happened to Kevin (victims son) he had his whole life ahead and dreams, i could go on n on but dont want to give to much to readers, you wont be disappointed ....
