The Susan Polk murder trial-in which Polk, acting as her own attorney, was tried and convicted of the murder of her husband and former therapist, Felix Polk - is one of the most sensational true crime cases of recent years. And one of the leading journalists working on the case is Carol Pogash. Writing for both the "New York Times" and the "Los Angeles Times", Carol has delved deeply into the back stories of all the protagonists; now, in "Seduced by Madness", she offers the richest and most textured recreation of this twisted story.
