The reader is treated to an extraordinary look inside a seemingly perfect marriage. Friends and family saw a "perfect couple". The husband considered himself a gentleman's gentleman". The author gives us an insightful, empathic description of a troubled husband whose failures felt so profound he was unable to share them with his successful wife. Sadly, he felt no way out. I couldn't put this book down!
"Dr. Fisher takes us on a journey into the madness behind a murder." The potentially dark side that is within all of us. I couldn't put the book down!
Great book that explains what was going on during this brutal killing. Well written and researched.
This was a fantastic book. It outlined the insidious burden of accumulative white lies in life and really got into the psychology of a seemingly normal, well educated man. Anyone looking for a great true crime should read this book!
Extremely disappointing. Shallow, superficial, poorly written and poorly edited. Author refers to himself in the third person. Seems to be very sympathetic (almost to the point of bias) to Mr. Wells; perhaps this was an attempt to tell the story from his point of view, but an ambitious undertaking such as that requires writing skill that was apparently not available. I kept waiting for the compelling insight other reviewers described, but finished the book unsatisfied and bewildered by the hype.
