"truly intriguing book"
In the title case an affluent Southern heart surgeon strikes up a doomed affair with his much younger nurse, Stephanie Stephens, only to wind up dead after their walk down the aisle. Other cases include the infamous 1930s "legs" murder mystery, in which a wealthy widow was butchered by her own doting daughter, Ouida Keeton, and the tragic murder of Avis Banks, a daycare worker whose death led back to her cheating fiancé and his murderous lover.
