This is by far one of the best true crime books I've read in a while. I didn't have insanely high expectations for this book because I'd already seen a one-hour special about the crime. I figured I pretty much knew what the story would be about. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book delves much deeper into the story of Rod Covlin and the murder of his wife, Shele. There were so many unbelievable moments in this story - so much so that you wouldn't believe it was possible if it was in a fictional story. I won't delve too much into the actual case because I think it's better to go in without a ton of knowledge about the details. But Rosenberg and Algar did a crazy amount of research - and it shows in their highly-detailed and insightful breakdown of the case. I sincerely hope that these two authors go on to write more true crime books - I would definitely read more about twisty, fascinating cases like this one!
