Publisher's Summary

The sordid number-one New York Times best-selling true crime story of adultery, addiction, gambling debt, and murder in a privileged suburban town - from author and journalist Joe McGinniss.

The Marshalls were the model family of Tom’s River, New Jersey, living the American dream and seemingly in possession of all that money could buy. Rob Marshall, a successful insurance broker, was the big breadwinner, king of the country-club set. Maria Marshall was his stunningly beautiful wife and the perfect mom to their three great kids. 

Then one night, while the couple drove home from Atlantic City, Rob, his head bloodied, reported Maria had been brutally slain. Sympathy poured in - until disquieting facts began to surface...and the true story of adultery, gambling, drugs, and murder tore the mask off Rob Marshall and the blinders off the town that thought he could do no wrong.

©1989 Joe McGinniss (P)2019 Simon & Schuster

Mesmerizing

This book captured my attention in the first chapter. I listened during long intervals. To be truthful, the ending is readily apparent however, it’s the journey of twists, turns and details that was the most interesting.

What are the best true crime books ever

When I was able to physically read books long ago I read this. I was so happy that Oraville got this book so I could read it again. Well told story of a man who is obsessed with himself and his own needs he would Stop at nothing to get what he wanted for himself no matter who it hurts. I read this book in three days. I recommend this book for anybody who likes true crime.

Too much

I could not get into this book, even tried skipping chapters to get a gist. Too many characters to keep track of and the narrator goes a bit quick so I found it difficult to follow who was who. Great premise if you can keep up.

Blind Selfishish

Gibson Frazier did a 5 star read of this book. He changed his voice for the several male characters. This made this true story come to life. It is amazing what a person will do for their own desires above there children. Selfish to the core.

Too much dialogue

The dialogue, which I believe is what the author imagined it took place in real life, is served best in a fictional account based on a true story. I prefer my true crime to be simply facts.

Waiting and waiting and ........

I quit chapter 17. I waited for something more to happen and it never came. Slow all the way thru story. Just not interesting , felt more obligated than anything to finish cause I wasted a credit on it. 🙁

Cloying

The story telling is cloying .. I found the ‘characters’ too ‘goody goody’ .. the horror of the underlying actual event has not been relayed successfully. The narrator didn’t help with that either.
