Prolific true crime author Lasseter and retired L.A. County prosecutor Bowers (You'll Never Find My Body) team up again to tell the sordid tale of an innocent man and the woman who plotted his murder. In December 1995, at a swap meet near Pasadena, Calif., successful, single 40-something Bruce Cleland meets beautiful Rebecca Salcedo, and her smile changes his life forever. Rebecca insists he support her lavishly, orchestrates a wedding, then demands a divorce, hoping to take Bruce's wealth. When Bruce refuses to pay spousal support, promiscuous, scheming Rebecca arranges for her husband's death. Lasseter and Bowers provide readers with a highly detailed depiction of events leading up to and following the gruesome murder of Bruce Cleland. True crime aficionados will savor this riveting read.
