Softcover. On April 19, 1985, Christopher Kevin Hatfield was murdered in the lounge room of his Sydney home. He was shot four times in the temple and once in the chest with a silenced .22 calibre weapon, while his wife Irena and her two daughters slept upstairs. Fifteen years later, Irena's estranged lover went to the police with the allegation that she had confessed her guilt to him. Irena Hatfield was charged with first-degree murder. After a high-profile trial that saw her villified by the media, a jury of Irena's peers declared her innocent. The identity of the murderer and the reasons behind the crime remain a mystery. From the moment she discovered her murdered husband's body to the revelation that someone she had loved was determined to destroy her; to the indignities of prison and the humiliation of notoriety, Irena Hatfield has clung to her sanity. Irena has spent her whole life battling the scars of a damaged childhood while yearning for the solace of true love. Her story is filled with lust, betrayal, injustice and an inclination for choosing the wrong men. Who is Irena Hatfield? Sex kitten? Self-made woman? A victim, or a survivor? Illus. in colour and b/w. 303pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
