    It started off okay, but then lost steam about halfway through. I gave up before I even finished the whole thing, as I found that I had lost interest.

    I briefly remember following this story as it happened in my home state. Such a tragic loss. It is amazing the lengths that people will go through to gain wealth. As I kept reading this book, the further and further I got the scarier and more intrigued I became with Harold. It was interesting to read how he reacted to both of his wives' deaths (in the moment and afterwards). Example is Harold talking to a family friend and photographer about Toni's death. He was calm and did not shed any tears. I briefly remember following this story as it happened in my home state. Such a tragic loss.

It was interesting to read how he reacted to both of his wives' deaths (in the moment and afterwards). Example is Harold talking to a family friend and photographer about Toni's death. He was calm and did not shed any tears. This was barely after the fall. Then, Harold had put together a video but all of the photos featured were of Harold only. You have to be cold hearted to push a jeep off a jack and watch as it crushed your wife. The fact that he would not help her and grabbed a dirty plastic bag to put under her head, showed no remorse. Author, Michael Fleeman did a great job telling this story again. True crime readers will thoroughly enjoy reading this book. It was a nice balance from start, middle to end.

    When a woman 'falls' to her death in Rocky Mountain National Park, authorities are suspicious of the surviving husband, particularly after they receive word that this is the second wife he's lost under unusual circumstances. Contains some minor errors, but it remains a solid account by the reliable Michael Fleeman.

    I just finished this intense true story of a man who only cared about money. Toni and Lynn had no chance with this crazy so called Christian man named Harold. I felt sad because the child has to go through life forever trying to remember a mother who did nothing wrong. Justice was served for the families and I was glad. Reading this book would make you mad, angry and sad but overall, it was a good read

    This book was okay, but I think I picked it up based on a long-form article I'd read (possibly by the same author of the book?). The article would have sufficed for me instead of reading this book, actually, as it detailed the two murders pretty completely. The thing this book has that the article didn't though is the trial, which seemed like the author merely condensed the transcript.

There wasn't a lot of original writing in this book at all - it is about 70% quotes from interviews and the direct trial transcript and evidence reports. Being a law clerk for a judge and having just sat through a two week trial a couple months ago, I felt the monotony of trial all over again throughout the second half of this book. Some people might love this kind of writing, but it wasn't great for me.

    The story is focused on the 'accidental' death of an eye doctor. She was a smart, devout christian woman who married a man who deceived her and others. The cruel truth was that her husband had already murdered his previous wife to collect life insurance. He murdered her so that he could collect 4.5 million dollars in life insurance. The book is well written although at times it focuses a lot on details of the crime and it is repetitive.

    A complex case that was overall an enjoyable read. At times, however, the writing style and presentation of facts became overwhelming. Constant run on sentences and seemingly irrelevant tangents made parts of the investigation difficult to follow. The most interesting pieces of writing came from court testimony; particularly the opening and closing statements. Would recommend for those interested in true crime novels.

    This book is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. I feel that the author really tried to drag out the word count and there were a lot of “filler” paragraphs and sentences. The story is a very depressing one and involves what I would call child abuse. If that bothers you, steer clear. There are also two very gruesome murders explained in detail. I’m glad I read this book but it did make my heart hurt.

    As far as true crime goes, this book flows formula. You get to know about the crime, timeline, victim, suspect, trial and aftermath. But what sets this book apart is the perpetrator. With great detail you get to go inside this marriage from hell.

    This book tells the tragic story of 2 beautiful women that marry a monster. And how life insurance money can make someone do the unthinkable. The 2 stories are intertwined and interesting. But the way the book is written, it is very repetitive. Drags on and on.. and my interest started to wane.
