Yet something slowly began to happen to Rowe . . His deceased mother's voice started to reverberate in his head instructing him to murder his family; reality disintegrated and a new job was lost when it proved too overwhelming. Finally a short stay in a psychiatric hospital did nothing to quell his sudden volatility . . . In a horribly violent act, he killed his wife and children.
Seen through the eyes and thoughts of Rowe's friends and second wife (whom he married on release from the psychiatric hospital where he spent just a few years for the murder of his family), Salamon braids the story of a man's roller coaster life (from ideal family man to murderer to someone struggling for redemption) with the touching and heroic tales of the mothers who were left looking on in shock at the tragedy no one ever could have anticipated.

"Long winded and disappointing"
I really struggled with his one. Despite it being a true story and utterly tragic, it was also boring and monotonous. It didn't give me any real understanding of what happened or why, just that it did, and I want more from this type of book. I didn't quite make it to the end as it didn't seem to be going anywhere with an hour or so to go.
