Hardback. The night of March 18, 1982, was chilly as Dianne Masters, the stunning blonde wife of well-to-do Chicago attorney Alan Masters, stepped into her sleek yellow-and-white Cadillac to drive home to her husband and 4yr old daughter. She was never seen again. Nine months later, scuba divers dredging a nearby canal discovered her sunken car beneath 25ft of frigid water. In the trunk was her badly decomposed body, pierced by two fatal bullets. From the moment he learned of her disappearance, Dianne's brother Randy Turner was convinced that his brother-in-law, Alan Masters, was involved. To the outside world, Dianne's life seemed picture perfect: an elegant home, glittering jewelry, influential friends. But her brother knew that her marriage had become a nightmare that she was determined to escape. Eleven years older than his beautiful wife, Alan Masters was consumed with jealousy when he uncovered evidence of Dianne's passionate affair with a lover who provided refuge from the physical and verbal abuse she suffered at her husband's hands. But there was an even more sinister reason for him to want his wife dead: Alan Masters' stock-in-trade was bribing police officers to fix cases, and his network of corruption extended deep into the Cook County system. When he refused Dianne's request for a divorce, she had threatened to expose him. Turner launched a crusade for justice, a crusade that would be constantly stymied by Alan's connections with the law. Finally Alan Masters was indicted as the head of a conspiracy to murder his wife. The sensational and highly publicised trial exposed a vast network of lies, conspiracy, and corruption. A fascinating portrait of a complex, beguiling woman trapped in a frightening marriage, and of a brother's determination to unmask a police cover-up of her brutal slaying.
