Publisher's Summary

From a New York Times - bestselling journalist: The story of the murder of a California attorney at the hands of the lethally cunning wife he never doubted.

A wealthy and well-connected legal ace and the proud owner of a champion show horse, Larry McNabney had every reason to love his life. But when he disappeared in September 2001, his wife, Elisa, claimed he joined a cult.

When Larry's body was found in a shallow grave three months later, Elisa was already gone. In a red convertible Jaguar, her brown hair dyed blond, Mrs. McNabney was speeding toward a new life in Florida - and a brand new identity.

Who was Elisa McNabney? Beautiful, seductive, and ruthless, she had thirty-eight aliases and a rap sheet a mile long. Carlton Smith, coauthor of the true crime classic The Search for the Green River Killer, reveals one shocking surprise after another in this harrowing tale of broken vows and deadly betrayal.

too much repetition

The whole story could have been told in an hour. But every scenario was told from 5 or 6 people's pt of view, and they are all the same!!!

a decent audiobook for middle of the road

A little long in the tooth I feel it could shorten to an extent very middle of the road in my opinion on some of the points made by the Author The story clearly outlines a tale of stupid people with too much money and too many chemical substances in their body to make sound judgments

Interesting story bland performance

The story was really interesting, the victim and perpetrators are really fleshed out. Making them both sympathetic and despicable. The narration bugged me, it was like having a book read by the old movie-phone guy.

Man or machine?

Worst narrator ever. Sounds like a machine. Didn't make it through 10 minutes before I knew it was going to continue to be horrid.
