I enjoy reading true crimes and a case here in Canada peeked my interest It's a easy to read true crime bookbut the ending has a lot to be desired Do l think Rene killed his wife Absolutely I think he would have gotten away with it had he kept his mouth shut I also think he was caught due to Esther's doctor wanting to know why she died because her case was a puzzle to him Lolly l don't think was as innocent as she tried to make herself out to be I think she had a pretty good idea what Rene was doing and kept her mouth shut to protect herself If you like true crime books this one will make a good for a long weekend or beach
