"All the elements of a compelling murder mystery—money, social position, passion and intrigue." —The New York Times Book Review

“An astounding tale of multileveled duplicity. . . . A masterful study of human nature. . . . [Taylor’s] reporting is prodigious, detailed and scrupulous; the writing graceful, insightful and sharp.” –News & Observer

“It’ll keep you mulling over the mystery long after you’ve closed the book.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Combine your favorite Gothic tale with the popular board game Clue and you’ll come close to realizing what a fascinating story John Taylor spins.” —Orlando Sentinel

“A classic whodunit, a tale of ‘did she or didn’t she?’. . . . This though, is nonfiction.” –Washington Post

“Taylor manages to navigate an extremely complicated case with humor and color to spare.” —New York Daily News

“A gripping story of a suspicious death and the mysteries that surround it even a trial, a conviction, and a decade later. . . . Taylor gives enough information to allow each reader to form his one-person jury.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch
