Hardback. The setting is upscale San Fernando Valley, California, home to movie stars, agents, lawyers, politicians, and doctors. It was here that a hired killer, a masked motorcyclist, stalked Anita Green when she drove to her office, fatally shooting her in broad daylight, execution style, in the back of the head. Anita Green was the president of her temple and a pillar of the community. Why would anyone want to murder her? The book tells of a one-million-dollar temple building fund spent without a single brick to show for it and a big-money divorce suit involving millions of dollars' worth of community property. As a member of this community and a friend of Anita Green's, the author discovered a story that went beyond even what she had ever imagined, revealing a world obsessed with power and money, where a husband has his wife murdered while the religious community tries desperately to hide their leader's transgression. There were signs that Anita Green was in grave danger. The community encouraged the silence, and accepted the corruption, rule-breaking and indecency. The author describes a husband's descent into a personal hell. Jealousy consumed him, first devouring his soul and then his judgement. In the end he saw himself losing everything he held dear: his wife, his home, his freedom, perhaps even his faith. Illus. 341pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in vg+ dw. which has the non-sticky residue of a price label on fr. cover. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage.
