When Kim married Anson "Buzz" Clinton, 28, a former male exotic dancer deemed an unsuitable guardian by the Carpenter family, Beth Ann became obsessed with the idea that only his death could ensure that she and her parents would get custody of the child.
On March 10, 1994, along a lonely stretch of road, Clinton was shot five times. His body was discovered by passing motorists.
Behind Clinton's death lay a bizarre murder-for-hire conspiracy that found privileged professionals and local misfits joined in a cold-blooded plot against an innocent man. This homicidal group included attorney Haiman Clein, 52. A husband, father, and successful businessman, Clein was Beth Ann Carpenter's boss - and also her sexually-obsessed, cocaine-snorting, murderously obedient lover. The paid killers were two buddies, organizer Joe Fremut and triggerman Mark Despres, who brought his 15-year-old son Christopher along for the hit.
The aftermath of this brutal crime would set investigators and prosecutors on a long and twisted path strewn with lies, treachery, and deceit that would cross the Atlantic Ocean before finally bringing justice home.

"A compelling narrative...entertaining and instructive." (Columbia Daily Tribune)
This would have been a good story, but it was all over the place in description of events and characters.
I have tried several of his performances. He is monotone.
I would have assembled the entire book differently.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
yes i would.
mark despres--not because he was likable. he was not. but he was such a rediculous person--especially as a parent i fond he held my interest.
buzz clinton was the person i LIKED best.
it was fine but the audio had some problems...that is not the narator's fault.
no but i did see the story on a tv show called "snapped" so i knew the story. this book goes in depth. despres made me groan with his rediculous ways.
i loved hearing so many towns in ct as i live there including my home town of greenwich, it is cool to hear so many towns in my state of which i am familiar with.
