Ex-Marine and bodyguard Chris Coleman was a family man with a secret: He wanted to leave his wife for another woman, Tara Lintz. But as head of security for the world-famous Joyce Meyer Ministries—an evangelical organization that frowns on divorce—Coleman had to make other plans.
On May 5, 2009, Illinois police received a call from Coleman, who claimed he was unable to contact his family. When investigators arrived at his home, they found Coleman's wife and two sons strangled in bed. Across the walls, spray-painted in red, were various obscenities—the word punished among them.
TO LIFE—OR DEATH.
Who could have done something so sinister? As Coleman played the part of a grieving husband, forensic evidence at the crime scene told a different story. Key testimony from Lintz afforded yet more evidence of Coleman's guilt—and soon a jury would find him guilty of three counts of murder in the first degree.

this was a really good true-crime book, it was thoroughly researched, and despite knowing the verdict and perpetrator from the outset, it was still a fascinating examination of how a seemingly normal person can commit such a gruesome murder. want to know more about malignant narcissism? read this book.
One of the best true crime books I’ve ever read. So unbelievable and sad and horrifying to consider that there are people like that out there. Quick read
One last kiss
Unreal. Brings Sherri, Garrett and Gavin to life. After u are done reading u just want it to be a story and not the way it really ended. Great attention to detail without being monotonous.
