Betty eventually killed him and Linda his new wife of 6 months leading to 2 trials, 2 TV movies and to this day Betty has never expressed any remorse. This book shows the end of Betty’s marriage, how her friends abandoned her, Dan’s callous affair, the taunting triumphant mistress and Betty’s descent into despondency and obvious madness. The serious discord went on and on and on and nobody tried to stop it or call halt.
Did Betty premeditate the double murder? Did Dan’s conjured bonhomie conceal a dark side? Why did Linda stay with Dan who allegedly dumped a pitcher of bee over her in a bar? Why did Dan and Linda act in such cruel and taunting ways toward a woman they branded as mad? What is with the purse-mouthed obsession over Betty’s shipyard language? Why did people castigate Betty as irrational for being angry over being cheated on and abandoned? Read this and draw your own conclusions about the acts of 3 people and how it led to disaster for them.
