Description

Samuel Madison always wondered what Sandrine saw in him, he a meek, stuffy doctorate student and she a brilliant, beautiful bohemian with limitless talent and imagination. Yet on the surface their marriage seemed perfectly tranquil: jobs at a small liberal arts college, a precocious young daughter, a home filled with art and literature, and trips to some of the world's most beautiful places. Then one night Sandrine is found dead in their bed from a deadly overdose of pain medication and alcohol, and Samuel is accused of poisoning her.As the truth of their turbulent marriage comes to light, Samuel must face a town convinced of his guilt, a daughter whose faith in her father has been shaken to it's core, and the truth about his brilliant wife whose shattering secrets could set him free-or condemn him to death.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Brian Holsopple dishes out just the right recipe of pathos, irony, tenderness, and style in Cook's latest. A university professor is on trial for the murder of his wife, Sandrine, who was also a teacher at the same college. In this is story of rediscovered love--albeit too late--the listener is treated to 10 days of courtroom drama juxtaposed with deep revelations about the defendant, the alleged victim, and their daughter. Sometimes it's difficult to focus on the human side of the story in the face of all the legalisms. Nonetheless, Holsopple deftly switches from prosecutor to witness, and then to the defendant himself. His voices are distinctive and appropriate for the multiplicity of characters as you wonder if Sandrine's death was murder--or a suicide for the purpose of framing her husband? Stay with Holsopple for the verdict and the unusual ending. It will be worth it. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
