A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs

Description

Edgar Award Finalist: The “sensational” true story of two desperate housewives and the killing that shocked a Texas community (Los Angeles Times Book Review).
 
Candy Montgomery and Betty Gore had a lot in common: They sang together in the Methodist church choir, their daughters were best friends, and their husbands had good jobs working for technology companies in the north Dallas suburbs known as Silicon Prairie. But beneath the placid surface of their seemingly perfect lives, both women simmered with unspoken frustrations and unanswered desires.

On a hot summer day in 1980, the secret passions and jealousies that linked Candy and Betty exploded into murderous rage. What happened next is usually the stuff of fiction. But the bizarre and terrible act of violence that occurred in Betty’s utility room that morning was all too real.

Based on exclusive interviews with the  Montgomery and Gore families, Evidence of Love is the riveting account of a gruesome tragedy and the trial that made national headlines when the defendant entered the most unexpected of pleas: not guilty by reason of self-defense.

Adapted into the Emmy and Golden Globe Award–winning television movie A Killing in a Small Town, this chilling tale of sin and savagery will “fascinate true crime aficionados” (Kirkus Reviews).

“A bizarre story well-researched and superbly written and told with just enough suspense to keep the reader turning pages.” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram
 
“An extraordinary book . . . As compelling as the best fiction and as thorough as the best history.” —Dallas Times Herald
 
“Gripping as true crime drama, the book is also distinguished by its social and psychological insights.” —Library Journal

“Carefully researched . . . this middle-American tragedy should fascinate true-crime aficionados.” —Kirkus Reviews
