Prosecutor Thomas Capano was the "golden boy" of Delaware State politics. Anne Marie Fahey was the vivacious young secretary to the Governor. For two years Fahey was the perfect foil for the married Capano's obsessive manipulation. Then she finally ended their relationship -- and he killed her.

This riveting true account re-creates the Capano-Fahey affair -- from the first flirtation to the final, cold-blooded act of arrogance, when Capano dumped an ice chest containing Anne Marie's lifeless body into the Atlantic. And it takes us into the courtroom, behind prison walls -- and into the minds of the men and women who united in a brilliant campaign to bring a well-connected killer to justice.
