A Perfect Husband

A Perfect Husband
by Aphrodite Jones

Aphrodite Jones is a good reason that I don't read a lot of the kind of "true crime" that other people do. She's an awful writer who takes unforgivable liberties with her subjects (just because Truman Capote interjected thoughts into dead people doesn't mean you can. Truman Capote was a genius and you are not).

However, A Perfect Husband is still a good read to give you the other side of the story after you've watched the fantastic The Staircase. After doing both you'll be in a better place to judge for yourself the guilt or innocence of Michael Peterson. I'm not talking too much about it here, since I think the less you know about the case, the more you'll enjoy The Staircase. After you've watched it you can pick up this book.

Aphrodite Jones is beyond hackdom. This one isn't nearly as bad as DELLA'S WEB or THE EMBRACE, though.
