The book, one is led to believe, is based on the story of David Mead who killed his wife Pamela in the couple's backyard fishpond. On the rear cover, readers are told how David Mead almost escaped justice by avoiding arrest for three years; yet, we see Mead's arrest within the first 100 pages!
The Meads' story IS in the book, but readers must wade through a lot of legal mumbo jumbo to find it; not to mention all the boasting by the author Howard Lemcke about himself, his colleagues, friends, secretarial assistant, etc. - anyone that Lemcke has, in my opinion, had interaction with during his life!
Don't waste your time with this one. It's horrible. And beware....this book was previously published under the title Death in a Fish Pond: A Perfect Husband, a Perfect Marriage, a Perfect Murder?

Writing is okay but not riveting. It being a local case added a mild interest. I do prefer the original "Death in a Fish Pond" title to "In Her Own Backyard".Published 12 months ago by Kay Argyle
This is a must read for true crime lovers. It shares not only the details of the murder but the prosecution as well. Read morePublished on January 20, 2013 by Michelle
I picked this book up in a local bookstore and was glad it was on the bargain table. This book was boring, impossible to follow and the punctuation was a joke. Read morePublished on October 1, 2011 by MaggieMae
