From back cover:

"Billionairess Susan Cummings was very rich, even by the exalted standards of Virginia horse country. Shy and single, she used just two rooms of her huge mansion and slept with a .357 Magnum under her pillow. Some called her haughty. Others said she was strangely obsessive, eccentric, and emotionless, with a strong distrust of people.

Her lover, Roberto, and Argentinean polo player with an eye for wealthy women, was undoubledly handsome and possessive... and he was also cheating on her. But police, answering a mysterious 911 call, saw him only as a bullet-riddled corpse. Telling of escalating abuse, Susan displayed the blood running freely from knife wounds on her arm, and said she shoot him in self defense. Yet police had their doubts: claiming that Roberto had been dead so long, the pool of his blood looked like sticky red Jell-O...

Now, in a harrowing true tale of secrets, obsession and betrayal, top crime writer Lisa Pulitzer reveals the uncensored truth about a privileged world where ordinary rules don't apply... where a shocking crime rattled the sprawling playground of the wealthy elite... and where money can buy almost everything..."

5 out of 10

This was an okay true crime story. I didn't really like the writer's style and found it a bit distracting. It seemed like every person had an adjective attached to them. "Slender woman", "the tousled, unfashionable woman", etc. I found myself not really feeling for the victim, or the murderer for that matter. I think the most shocking aspect of the story is the sentence Susan Cummings received.
