Hardback. In October 2002, Susan Polk, a housewife and mother of three, was arrested for the murder of her husband, Felix. The arrest in her sleepy northern California town kicked off what would become one of the most captivating murder trials in recent memory, as police, local attorneys, and the national media sought to unravel the complex web of events that sent this seemingly devoted housewife over the edge. Now, with exclusive access and in-depth reporting the author turns an analytical eye to the story of Susan Polk, delving into her past and examining how over 20yrs of marriage culminated in murder. The author reconstructs the tumultuous chronology of the Polk family, telling the story of how Susan and Felix struggled to control their rambunctious sons and their disintegrating marriage in the years and months leading up to Felix's death. But the history of the Polk family is only half the story. The author also elucidates the methodical police work of the murder investigation, revealing never-before-seen photos and writings from the case file. In addition, she carefully scrutinises the many twists and turns of the remarkable trial, exploring Susan's struggles with her defence attorneys and her shocking decision to represent herself. Illus. in colour and b/w, Epilogue, Appendix and Index. 354pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw.
