AN Unfinished Canvas: A True Story of Love, Family, and Murder in Nashville

by Michael Glasgow, Phyllis Gobbell

Paperback(Mass Market Paperback)



Janet March had a picture-perfect life-until she disappeared...

No body, no cause of death, no physical evidence-and yet, after ten years, a murder conviction...

Janet March, the strikingly attractive artist and wife of corporate lawyer Perry March, had it all: two children she adored, a burgeoning career in the arts, supportive parents, and a dream house. What no one knew was that her husband led a destructive double life of secrets and lies. On August 16, 1996, Janet would finally file for divorce. But she never made it to that appointment-because on August 15, she vanished...

Janet's disappearance incited a massive search and media frenzy, revealing Perry's true nature to the world. For ten years, her parents and Perry battled each other through the court system in what would become and international custody battle. Meanwhile, the Nashville Police Department investigated the case from every possible angle, with the eventual help of a shocking surprise witness. Though they couldn't find the body, determine the cause of death, or even reconstruct exactly what happened that fateful night, her parents and Nashville's first Cold Case Squad remained certain of one thing-they would find justice for Janet

I followed the disappearance of Janet March very close from the beginning in 1996 and watched most of Perry March trials. Even though I had as expansive knowledge of the case as any ordinary citizen could, I found this book riveting and hard to put down. It painted a clear picture of the events, while being sensitive to the victims of this terrible tragedy. I would recommend it as a must read true story of deceit, greed, murder and the people that never gave up on justice for Janet.

This book was so poorly written I cannot understand how it got to a publisher. I skimmed it and shouldn't have bothered. It seems the authors did very little research and repeated and repeated AND repeated. I read true crime to try to understand murderous personalities, but this was a bloated newspaper article.

It started out as an okay read but the last quarter or more was spent describing the trials, i pretty much ened up scimming through it, which i never want to do after commiting to reading a book. Fascinating true story which could have been presented in a more interesting manner.
