They Were The Perfect Family....

For twenty years, Ken and Kristine Fitzhugh and their two sons had lived lives of comfortable middle-class normality in the university town of Palo Alto, California. Then came the shocking news that Kristine Fitzhugh was dead, the victim of a terrible accident.... By the time the Palo Alto Police Department looked closer at the death of Kristine Fitzhugh, there could be only one conclusion. Someone had murdered Kristine in her own home, inflicting a series of horrific blows to the back of her head, and then cleaned up the mess to make it look like an accident. Who would do such a thing? Protesting his innocence, Kenneth Fitzhugh was arrested and tried for the murder of his wife. And as the case progressed, one by one, the hidden secrets of the Fitzhugh family came spilling out....

I did appreciate the story however at times keeping everyone straight was a bit confusing. Its a tragic event and all because of greed and selfishness! I will never understand why some think it's better to murder than share!

Slow Paced

I love true crime books. This audio book, however; was slow-paced, repetitive, and at times excruciatingly boring. So much background info on the defendant's family members, and just an enormous amount of unnecessary details that add nothing to the story line. I would pass on this one.
