The Von Bülow Affair
Here is a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of the most publicized trial of the decade -- a trial that was not only front-page news but was televised in its entirety. In a wealth of material never before published, William Wright gives us the step-by-step story of the events that led to the conviction of Claus Von Bülow for the attempted murder of his wife, Sunny. It is all here: the results of interviews with Sunny's children, her mother, her close friends, and her maid, and a long, exclusive interview with Claus himself. We are given every aspect of the trial from testimony to public reaction. The Von Bülow Affair is a riveting portrayal of a case that captured everyone's imagination, and at the same time a dramatic picture of high society at its highest and lowest levels. - Jacket flap.
