As boys, Robert and Andrew Kissel competed and excelled. As men, they made millions—Robert in the Asian markets and Andrew in real estate. But a darkness was chasing the brothers down. In November 2003, Robert was murdered in his posh Hong Kong apartment. Two-and-a-half years later, Andrew was found stabbed to death in his Greenwich Connecticut mansion.
Nancy Kissel was charged with murdering her husband Robert, after serving him a milkshake laced with sedatives and then beating him to death with a blunt object. But what happened to Andrew? His marriage was failing, and he faced prison for real estate fraud. Was his death a murder—or suicide? A Family Cursed tells the riveting true story of the different paths the Kissel brothers took toward the same fate.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Extremely boring. Written in a very factual, step by step way. No storytelling, no visualizations, absolutely nothing to draw you in. Took two interesting cases and made them very blah. This is something to pass on.
