Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling true crime author investigates a shocking case of a wife, mother, and murder in the Iowa suburbs.
 
Iowa housewife Tracey Pittman Roberts seemed to have it all: natural beauty, three loving children, and a fairy tale second marriage to a wealthy businessman. But beneath the happy façade was a woman who used lies, manipulation, sex, ugly allegations, blackmail—and even murder—to serve her own selfish ends.
 
On December 13, 2001, police rushed to Tracey’s home after a shooting left her young neighbor dead. Tracey claimed it was an act of self-defense. Nine gunshot wounds—and a decades-long trail of extortion, fabrication, fraud, and intimidation—said otherwise. Ten years after the crime, Tracey’s case finally went to trial in an explosive courtroom showdown. In a searing exploration of the criminal mind, acclaimed investigative journalist M. William Phelps traces the saga of a psychopath who hid in plain sight—until her wicked ways caught up with her.

Excellent Book

What a great book on a vile and evil woman. This author has a great way of including the key aspects of a very detailed case in a way that flows beautifully. He also adds elements of the trial that are substantive without making the reader feel like they went through a trial. I admire the author for having the fortitude to bring this horrible story to light while the subject of the book is so dark and evil.
