oPhelps is the Harlan Coben of real-life thrillers.o -Allison Brennan
a
Iowa housewife Tracey Pittman Roberts seemed to have it all- natural beauty, three loving children, and a fairy tale second marriage to a wealthy, handsome businessman. But beneath the happy fapade was a woman who used lies, manipulation, sex, ugly allegations, blackmail-and even murder-to serve her own selfish ends.
a
On December 12, 2001, police rushed to Tracey's home after a shooting left her vulnerable young neighbor dead. Tracey claimed it was an act of self-defense. Nine gunshot wounds-and a decades-long trail of extortion, fabrication, fraud, and intimidation-said otherwise. Ten years after the crime, Tracey's case finally went to trial in an explosive courtroom showdown. In a searing exploration of the criminal mind, bestselling investigative journalist M. William Phelps traces the saga of a psychopath who hid in plain sight-until her wicked ways caught up with her.
