When I first picked up this book, I thought that I would find it fascinating. Not only does it take place on the western slope of Colorado (where I live), but the opening scene takes place in the ... Read full review
I did not read the book nor did I know Alan and his wife on a personal level. I was living in Denver at the time and wanted to move to this area. I was working for a large Mortgage Company in Denver. I sent my resume to Alan hoping to work for his company in Delta. I drove down three times. Each time with the intention on starting work for him. He gave me the impression I was hired. I ended up going to SOS Staffing Service and they sent me to Alan's Company as a temporary hire. I worked there for 2 month. I can honestly say that I never once saw his wife at the office during the time I worked there. As for Alan, he put fear in his employees. He was very controlling. When he was not in the office the girls would talk bad about him. So it makes sense to me that he would control his wife and have everything in his name including the bank account and giving her cash to buy petty things. It does not surprise me that he would make it sound like Miriam did not mind him doing this. That is exactly what a controller would say. Not that what she did was excusable, she must of been really insecure not to just pack up and leave him. Most women would of not put up with his controlling behavior.
