or less The also has an annoying habit of commenting on the story instead of just writing the story and letting the reader judge for himself I m not sure what this author was thinking but there are far better true crime writers out there than this guy This one just didn t hold my interest due to its slow pace read on my nookI M A Fan Of True Crime Fare And Since M a fan of true crime fare and since M Phelps is a Connecticut author this seemed like a doubly good choice for me The crime one I had seen featured on 48 Hours is an interesting case involving the high profile murder of 45 ear old Jan Roseboro who was found dead in the deep end of her swimming pool Her husband Michael Roseboro a respected member of this tight knit community located in the heart of Amish country seems a bit off to detectives who initially show up at the scene Michael a funeral director is the person who finds his wife and the one who calls 911 to report her drowning He seems cold distant shows little emotion at what one would think is a horrific and devastating event It s hard to say exactly what made this just so so for me It seemed a bit too much of he said she said he did this she did that but not like in the good investigative senseM William Phelps is the author of the critically acclaimed Nathan Hale the life and death of America s fist spy and also The Devil s Rooming House the true story of America s deadliest female America s fist spy and also The Devil s Rooming House the true story of America s deadliest female killer about Amy Archer Gilligan proprietor Archer Home for Elderly People and Chronic Invalid in Windsor CT the inspiration for Arsenic and Old Lace I think I should try one of these I read this book with a friend it was a uick read only because I was able to skim uite a bit I suggested we read this book since M William Phelps has been on plenty of the shows I enjoy Investigation Discovery so I thought that he would be a good writer I think I will stay away from all his other books from now on This book went on and on about the same thing it was extremely repetitive went on for too long I did enjoy being advised I could go hear the 911 call online which I did He did portray the bad guy as just that but I will pick an Ann Ssman and member of a prominent family showed no emotion as he learned of her death But the next day an autopsy revealed Jan had been savagely beaten and strangled before being tossed in the water to drown Soon Michael's secret lover pregnant with his child stepped into the medi.Pages Or Less The
Review Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ï M. William PhelpsUle book even one I read before before picking up another of his another great true up another of his Another great true book by M William Phelps that I set aside when it arrived and just discovered again What starts out looking like an accidental drowning of the wife of a wealthy undertaker who discovered her in the bottom of their new swimming pool one night in Pennsylvania turns out to be a very twisted murder story It s soon discovered that although she drowned she was beaten to death first and the investigation expands from there The twists and turns are pretty crazy and kept me very involved in this one right to the finish Good investigation and trial information as is usual with Phelps very thorough reporting all around Short Review This is a good book about a murder and it s trial told through the voice of M William Phelps Having always liked his books his writing style and the time he puts into fact checking etc are top notch I was excited to read this one because I did watch a show on the case a while back and I wasn t disappointed However as with many of his books there were a lot of parts that dragged on and on Repeating the same facts over and over again alienates readers just
much as it a jury and I found myself wanting to skip over sections because of it For instance the love letters between the killer and the woman he was having of it For instance the love letters between the killer and the woman he was having affair with was redundant cheesy and overdone I would have gotten the point in 5 pages rather than reading upwards of 50 of them Other than this the book is eye opening interesting well written I recommend his books for those who enjoy true crime novels and shows on Investigation Discovery the ID channel I agree with Patricia s review I just found it repetitive and did not finish This was a DNF for meI also think I am getting burnt out on True Crime It s an unsettling book and there isn t anything wrong with it I did read uite a bit of it before deciding to stop but the repitition and slow pace kept me from wanting to read the whole thingI do think if one is a real lover of true crime they may like this I am an occasional reader of the genre and have been reading less and less of it lately so thi s book was just not for A spotlight And a horrifying true story of illicit passion deadly deceit and cold blooded murder unfolded Praise for M William Phelps One of America's finest true crime writers Vincent Bugliosi Phelps creates a vivid portrait Publishers Weeklyy Includes 16 Pages Of Shocking Phot. ,As Much As It
M William Phelphs is always great and this book is no exception to the rule I love how he adds a of his own witty personality while no exception to the rule I love how adds a little of his own Witty Personality While The Story As It personality while the story as it revealed to him these books normally take me 2 days to read this took me almost a weekslow story wealthy man sex addict mistress love child sees no other way out murders the wife of 20 For Fear of Little Men years and stages it as an accidental drowningawn seen it before nothing new or juicy to it typically i love this author this one was not that great i dont think anyone could have made this story interesting i think the most surprising thing of this whole book was the fact that the prosecutor got a conviction i m not sure i would have voted for conviction had i sat in on this case This is a true crime story about a mortician of all things who murdered his wife for several reasons he had been a serial adulterer and was afraid his wife was going to find out about his most recent affair his mistress was pregnant she was also married and he had promised to marry her This man Michael Rose is one of the worst narcissists I have ever read about and instead of divorcing his wife of 19 Twig the Fairy and the Goblin Masquerade (Twig the Fairy years he decides to brutally murder her It can t get much worse than that This case took place in Pennsylvania in Lancaster County where a lot of Amish and Mennonite people live which makes it all the surreal in my opinion The author did a good job of getting into the heads of the family members principals and also the law enforcement personnel involved in the case I have just one word to sum this book up unbelievable I ve read a lot of true crime in my life and this particular book is one of the worst I have ever read The author does not dig beneath the surface and try to understand who the people are in the story at all He gives no background information on how they met or how they got to the point where a husband kills his wife Instead the author chooses to focus ad nauseum on the mistress and the sordid relationship these two adultrous people have pages and pages and pages and most of them add nothing of relevance to the story The 500 pages primarily center around the murder and theear after the murder and could certa.
