The Final Affair
Richard Overton, a brilliant doctor of psychology, had admitted once before to lacing his first wife’s coffee with Drano. He was also accused of poisoning her mother. And his recent diaries exposed an obsessively vindictive man who suspected Janet, his third wife, of an infidelity he vowed to avenge. Incredibly, when her autopsy revealed traces of cyanide, the coroner’s findings were dismissed, the official ruling was death by natural causes, and her husband, a pillar of the community, was never even questioned. One year later, Detective Tim Carney accidentally stumbled across the cold case and decided to engage the good doctor in a game of cat-and-mouse. It would explode into a landmark trial that would eventually expose one of the country’s most distinguished men as one of its most heartless monsters.
