McMillan Palgrave

Martin MacNeill-a doctor, lawyer, and Mormon bishop-discovered his wife of thirty years dead in the bathtub of their home in Pleasant Grove, Utah, her face bearing the scars of a face-lift he'd persuaded her to have the week before. At first sight, the death of fifty-year-old Michele MacNeill, a formel model and mother of eight, appeared natural. But days after the funeral, when Dr. MacNeill moved his much-younger mistress into the family home, his children grew suspicious...

A DECEPTIVE HUSBAND WHO WOULD KILL TO HAVE HIS WAY...
Soon the MacNeill daughters conducted their own investigation into their mother's death-only to uncover their father's multiple marital affairs, past criminal record, and falsified college transcripts he used to con his way into medical school. It would take six long years to solve the mystery of Michele MacNeill's death and secure a first-degree murder conviction. This is the shocking story about how one family unmasked a monster in their very own home-and lived to tell.

Martin was very accomplished, at destroying people's lives, that is. Text book sociopath. My heart goes out to the family that was victimized. The author was quite thorough in her research, making for an interesting court case.

Rule of thumb - if you're going to murder your wife and make it look like an accident, especially if you're a doctor, never bring the much young girlfriend you had on the side to live with your family just days after the funeral. And never molest your own children either. Sooner or later, someone will start to ask questions.
