It was planned to look like a suicide--but even in the best-laid plans, evidence is left behind. Jocelyn Branham Earnest was found dead on the floor of her living room in Forest, Virginia. By her side was a gun and a suicide note--typed, lacking a signature, and with one fingerprint on it, a fingerprint apparently belonging to Jocelyn's estranged husband. Wesley Earnest was a respected high school administrator, poised to restart his life in a new community. Parents entrusted their children to his care and believed he was above reproach. But the investigation into the life the couple once shared would reveal adultery, troubled finances, and shattered dreams--enough for one man with murder on his mind to travel hundreds of miles, under cover of the night.--From publisher description.

The first half the book was great. A lot more of this story has been written about in this book than what was on the TV shows. The second half of the book was all word for word trial coverage. Found myself skipping through that its all boring and redundant. Why do crime writers do this? I would rather read about another case in the same book.
