Couldn't seem to put this book down for long. It even surpassed, Fire and Fury which is so popular right now. It's amazing the woman this married guy who murdered his wife was a man at one time. Everyone laughed about it. Being a true story, have a hard time believing someone would give up their wife for someone like this man/woman sex chg. He was very deceiving and most thought of him as a wonderful, giving man at one time. He is a typical sociopath, in that he is a con-artist, like most. Too bad his wife didn't get away from him earlier and could have saved her life.

This is a well written, true crime book. It tells the story of a self absorbed, sociopathic personality. It is the story of a married man, Dan Willoughby, who, during a mid-life crisis, decided he wanted to marry the sexy, wanton, and amoral Yesenia Patino with whom he had been cheating on his wife. Instead of simply divorcing his wife, Trish, the mother of his children, he decided to kill her, motivated soley by greed.

Masquerading as a hard working, devout mormon, family man for many years, Dan Willoughby was nothing more than a con man, gulling all those whom he knew. The ensuing investigation of the murder revealed Willoughby to be a real bottom feeder. A liar, a cheat, a thief, and, ultimately, a murderer, Willoughby would not escape the long arm of the law, as his dead wife's family would not let the matter rest in their pursuit for justice.

Dan arranged to commit the brutal murder in Mexico and planned an elaborate charade that included using his children in his murder scenario. He ensured that they would be the ones to find their dead, blood soaked mother. He went to all this trouble so that he could get some insurance money, his wife's share of a thriving business, and the freedom to marry the person with whom he had become obsessed, Yesenio Patino. Little did he know that his wife would have the last laugh from the grave, as the police investigation revealed that Ms. Patino was a transsexual who had once been a man and had had a sex change operation! It was a fact that Ms. Patino had conveniently neglected to tell Willoughby.

The author paints a compelling portrait of the personalities involved in this matter. It persuasively lays out the details of the events that propelled Willoughby to the consummate finale. The police investigation and courtroom drama is succintly summarized. The book is neither a police nor courtroom procedural. What the author attempts to do is provide a portrait of those who were in some way involved in this matter. In that, it certainly succeeds. Persuasively written, the book leaves the reader with little doubt as to the guilt of Dan Willoughby and his accomplice, Yesenio Patino.

The book provides sixteen pages of photographs of the parties involved in this tragedy. It is a compelling and absorbing read that will keep the reader turning the pages. Those who enjoy reading well written books in the true crime genre will enjoy this one. It will certainly appeal to fans of Ann Rule and Jack Olsen.

This book is well organized and intelligently written. There's no sensationalism or distasteful details and the story is thoroughly reported so that it's easily followed from beginning to end. A truly interesting book.

I have always done a lot of reading and enjoy TRUE STORIES especially. So far I have found that most of the True Crime writers are a group of their own and all of them are very good at what they do. The books at Amazon are very good books and most of them are quick reads.

Still reading, but so far, so good

It's been a while since I've read this book, but I did read it two or three times. I thought it was well-written in describing the greed and deceit of Dan Willoughby. But it was very depressing in that these children lost their mother, and two people were involved in her murder, neither of whom had consciences. I laughed out loud when I read that Dan was not aware that Yesenia used to be a man! What an idiot.

It looks like the victim's family really got into reviewing and having interest in this book...more so than I have seen in other TC books. That being said, clearly, I am only getting Jim Henderson's take and that of the TV show "Snapped" where I saw Yesenia's story portrayed. I do like how the author does not make the victim seem perfect (the so called "Ann Rule effect"). The author seemed pretty even handed towards all parties so I am not sure why "A Customer" was seeing the book as just some kind of prosecutorial love letter. I enjoyed the story on TV, I enjoyed the book, and yes, I grieve for the victim and her family. It is the same story we TC readers see over and over; a spouse who would rather murder than imagine their life divorced from the victim. They just wish the whole thing had never happened and think by committing murder they can make it all go away and get rich in the process. The twist here of course is the "Crying Game" angle and I think the author handled that topic well.
