In October 2002, Susan Polk, a California housewife and mother of three, was arrested for the brutal murder of her husband, Felix. More than twenty years her senior, Felix was teenage Susan's psychologist when their unorthodox romantic entanglement began, eventually leading to a difficult marriage, disturbing allegations of abuse from both sides, and Felix's gruesome murder. What followed was an extraordinary trial that captivated a nation—as police, attorneys, and the media tried to understand what pushed a seemingly devoted homemaker over the edge.

Catherine Crier, author, attorney, legal analyst, and host of Court TV's "Catherine Crier Live," gives an expert reading of her investigation into the Susan Polk murder case. In 2002, Polk stabbed her husband of over twenty years 27 times, then washed and put away the knife, and went to bed. Crier exposes the couple's twisted interactions, beginning with Susan's molestation by Felix when she was a teen and he was her therapist, and continuing through his abuses within their marriage. This abridgment cuts away much of the tedium necessary in careful police work and reduces monotonous trial procedures to a minimum. Remaining are the more immediate case chronology and highlights of a human drama sure to engage the listener. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
