"If I'm ever late for work, call the police!"
That's what Albuquerque, New Mexico, bank teller Girly Chew, 36, told her boss. The Malaysian-born beauty lived in mortal fear of her pathologically deranged husband and had taken out a restraining order against him. She was late for work for the first - and last - time on September 10, 1999. Her bloodstained clothes were found near a lonely stretch of desert highway. Chew's estranged spouse was an unrepentant scam artist with a terrifying violent streak. Born Armando Chavez, Jr., in Texas, he changed his name to Diazien Hossencofft and said he was from Switzerland. Claiming to be a surgeon and DNA expert with an antiaging formula, he conned a woman dying of cancer out of nearly a half million dollars. While married, he conducted numerous affairs - even managing to wrangle sole custody of the infant son he fathered with one of his mistresses. Nursing a sick obsession with his wife while exerting Manson-like control over his girlfriend/accomplice, UFO fanatic Linda Henning, 47, Hossencofft set the stage for Girly Chew's murder and followed through on his plan with sadistic enthusiasm.

This is a very confusing case...author made it more confusing by jumping from one subject to another & introducing new characters without explaining their connection! Chronology would have helped!
