The Good Son: A True Story of Greed, Manipulation, and Cold-Blooded Murder by Stella Sands

Rick and Suzanna Wamsley were well-loved in their Mansfield, Texas, community. Former high-school sweethearts, they provided their two children with every comfort. But their twenty-year-old son, Andrew, had a bitter, rebellious streak...and resented his parents for making him go to college, for not giving him the title to the sports car he wanted, and for their disapproval of his teenage girlfriend, Chelsea Richardson. She was from the other side of the tracks—and she had a deadly plan in store for the Wamsleys...

On the night of December 11, 2003, Chelsea and two accomplices entered the Wamsley home. Carrying guns and knives, they killed Suzanna instantly. Rick fought his attackers tooth and nail…but couldn't save himself. Later, DNA evidence would link Chelsea's best friend, Susana Toledano, to the crime scene. Then authorities learned that a fourth suspect provided the murder weapon. It was only a matter of time before investigators closed in on the last perpetrator—the one person who stood to inherit almost two million dollars in the event of the Wamsleys' deaths: Andrew, The good SON.

This book starts off slow and gets even worse. The book is MAINLY court scripts and interviews with neighbors. Personally, I found it to be so boring that I couldn't make myself read the trials of the others involved in this horrendous crime.
