On late evening in June of 1959 gunshots echoed through southills neighborhood of West Covina, California. Dr. R. Bernard Finch had murdered his wife, Barbara Jean. His accomplice was his 18 year old paramour, Carole Tregoff. The only witness; the young au pare from Sweden, Marie Anne Lidholm. Three years and three trials followed, during which the defendants' testimony resulted in two hung juries. The book tells the story of the crime and the court dramas that ensued. And in doing so studies the greed, deceit, jealousy, resentment, and fear of the human nature. It also portrays the bravery and courage of the au pare, Lidholm, who was almost killed by Finch and, undaunted, proceeded to testify at all the trials with remarkable consistency. She is interviewed in the book and has written the introduction. This paperback edition has many photographs.
