Gail's parents had been thrilled to learn she was marrying Robert Bierenbaum. He seemed to be the perfect match for their daughter. He was from a well-to-do family, a medical student who spoke five languages fluently, a skier, and he even flew an airplane. But Gail would come to learn of her husband's dark side. On one occasion when Robert had tried to choke Gail because he caught her smoking, she filed a police report. She also alleged that he tried to kill her cat because he was jealous of it. For years, her sister pleaded with Gail to run for her life. Even her therapist warned his vulnerable patient that she could eventually die at the hands of the man she married.
Fifteen years after this unspeakable, unfathomable crime, a jury found Robert Bierenbaum guilty of murder - and stripped the mask off of this privileged professional to reveal a monster.

a very thorough book looking at the case of a doctor who might have murdered his wife.
the twists and turns in the story and the eventual outcome are intricately detailed and discussed. I found this true life story a very interesting one that leads to one conclusion in reality.

This is a horrendous story that I hadn't heard of in the news, although it's been awhile since it happened.
It's hard to believe that there are people among us like this. To be honest, I disliked both the victim and the person who was convicted. However, that doesn't take away from the tragedy
They couldn't prove he did it but I got the impression that he did, and the jury obviously did as well.. They had only circumstantial evidence but it was overwhelming damning.
It was almost the perfect murder...........
I felt the book was very well written but I didn't really care for the narrator. His voice sounded forced. I prefer Kevin Pierce to narrate true crime.
A good listen, overall. I hate to say that about an awful murder but I do like true crime. I wish it was all fiction though.

Can't get past the first 30 minutes
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The narration of this book makes it so I can't even listen.
Would you ever listen to anything by Kieran Crowley again?
With a different narrator
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I can't listen, too slow, raspy and hard to understand
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
