Summary

The sordid number-one New York Times best-selling true crime story of adultery, addiction, gambling debt, and murder in a privileged suburban town - from author and journalist Joe McGinniss.

The Marshalls were the model family of Tom’s River, New Jersey, living the American dream and seemingly in possession of all that money could buy. Rob Marshall, a successful insurance broker, was the big breadwinner, king of the country-club set. Maria Marshall was his stunningly beautiful wife and the perfect mom to their three great kids. 

Then one night, while the couple drove home from Atlantic City, Rob, his head bloodied, reported Maria had been brutally slain. Sympathy poured in - until disquieting facts began to surface...and the true story of adultery, gambling, drugs, and murder tore the mask off Rob Marshall and the blinders off the town that thought he could do no wrong.

Great listen

The writing and narration are both top notch. This book was hard to put down and the time flew by while listening!

Everything was well thought out.

The narration was fantastic and the story well told. Joe McGinniss has done it again!

What are the best true crime books ever

When I was able to physically read books long ago I read this. I was so happy that Oraville got this book so I could read it again. Well told story of a man who is obsessed with himself and his own needs he would Stop at nothing to get what he wanted for himself no matter who it hurts. I read this book in three days. I recommend this book for anybody who likes true crime.

Too much dialogue

The dialogue, which I believe is what the author imagined it took place in real life, is served best in a fictional account based on a true story. I prefer my true crime to be simply facts.

No twists. Just a predictable and uneventful plot line. Not worth getting this one. bummer.

Just not sure how I feel.

I have so loved Joe McGinniss but this one just sort of missed the mark. I will probably listen again to see if I lost focus.

fantastic book and great poor performance!

I will listen to anything written by Joe McGinnis. Ever since fatal vision, he has on my mind with his excellent writing an analysis of events. Anyting audible Scott beaudreau McGinnis I will read. And if you don't have some of his things, you should get everything that you don't have an audio in the record it.
