Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Smart, gorgeous redhead Beth Carpenter was a successful attorney in Connecticut's upscale coastal towns. Her brother-in-law, Anson "Buzz" Clinton, was a former exotic dancer--and, Beth decided, unsuitable to be her precious niece's guardian. On a cold spring night, when passing motorists discovered Clinton's bullet-riddled body along an interstate's exit ramp, detectives began to unravel a twisted trail of sex games, lies, greed, and family secrets. The investigation would cross the Atlantic Ocean before finally bringing justice home. With a revealing new update, this classic true-crime thriller is a gripping account of obsession, manipulation, and cold-blooded murder.

Recounts the true story of Connecticut real-estate lawyer Beth Carpenter, who, deeming her sister's new husband, Anson Clinton, unfit to care for her niece, convinced her sexually obsessed boss and lover to hire two hit men to kill Anson.
