This is an interesting account of the murder of dentist John Yelenic. The author does a great job of delving into all aspects of the victim's life and the state trooper situation...but he left me wishing for much more when it came to the dentist's estranged wife, Michele.
Carlton Smith is one of my favorite true crime authors, but I felt he wasn't as objective here as he usually is in his storytelling. And he is guilty of lots of repetition. But overall, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.
As for the reviewers complaining about the denouement being revealed early..this isn't a whodunit..it's a true crime novel..very few of which keep you guessing til the end.
