A scandalous murder trial reaches the heart of high society
'An enthralling story' NEW YORK TIMES
The trial of Stephen Bellamy and Susan Ives, accused of murdering Bellamy's wife, lasts eight days. That's eight days of witnesses (some reliable, some not), eight days of cross-examination, and eight days of sensational courtroom theatrics lively enough to rouse the judge into frenzied calls for order. As each witness is brought to the stand, the mystery of the case only increases in all its sordid detail.
By the time the closing arguments are made, the verdict shocks the entire courtroom.
