Publisher's Summary

A suburban housewife's picture-perfect life is shattered in this riveting true crime book from the author of Evil Next Door.

When Nancy Cooper moved from Canada to Cary, North Carolina, with her new husband Brad, their future was bright. Living in one of the most picturesque towns in the United States, the couple mingled with neighbors, attended parties, and raised two daughters.

Then, on July 14, 2008, the façade came crashing down when Nancy's strangled body was found in a storm pond.

Nancy's husband claimed that she had gone for a jog and never come back. But as the police investigation deepened, and as Brad was brought to trial for murdering his wife, a complex web of affairs and lies was uncovered involving multiple residents of Cary's idyllic neighborhoods. At the heart of it stood the Coopers' soured marriage, Nancy's threat to leave with the children, and her own cold-blooded murder. It would take a mountain of damning evidence before justice was served.

Good Story

This is a good story. It's narrated beautifully. The only thing I didn't like is the repetitive nature of the information.

Good story

Good book, great narration. Probably longer than need be. The beginning of the book went on so long I began to wonder if we'd proceed to be middle and end. Still, I'd recommend it to those who enjoy true crime.

Courtroom repetitive story

I was really enjoying the book until they got to the courtroom and lawyers questioning witnesses, got to be repetitive and lost my interest. If you like courtroom logistics then this is for you. Very slow book.

The definition of redundant

This book could have been 6 hours shorter by only eliminating repetition. If the writer told you something once, they told you another 7-10 times-no joke. Look up the story on Google and save a credit.

Repetitive

Absolutely loved the narration, She used different voices and accents! The story line was very good and had my attention but so much repetition. I don’t have to be told 20 times that when she returned from her vacation that there were dirty dishes In the kitchen and ants all over! Overall, it was good,

Knowing the end before the beginning

Author sets up a good narrative in first chapters but repeats, repeats and continues to repeat same characterizations of major individuals of story line. I was ready for a different interpretation of murder as the book went along however the first facts set forth never change. It’s a sad event and you know the villain from the get go but never how the victim was killed. Not suggested reading because it is not well written. In addition the narrator C. Cannon didn’t help with her tone of voice. - sorry to say.

Great book but a little biased

I enjoyed listening to the book but I believe author was a little to biased on this one. This should have focused on the facts and not given into confirmation bias like the police did otherwise great boom.
