Pete Simon's all-American life was everything he had ever wished for: a good home, a satisfying career, and a marriage still strong and loving after nearly twenty years. But in the days following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, everything was about to change. It begins with the appearance of a stranger at his door. The next day his wife Lily disappears, leaving a note behind begging Pete not to follow her. Now, with a business card from an antiques dealer in Barcelona as his only lead, he sets out to find his missing wife. But each door Pete opens leads him deeper into a painful and shocking past. A haunting parable of good and evil and all the shades of humanity in between, Turncoat is a rocket-paced roller-coaster ride with surprises at every turn.

After a comprehensive explanation of DNA and Mendelian genetics, Samantha Wienberg recounts the life and death of British scientist Helena Greenwood. In 1985, David Paul Frediani is arrested for the home invasion and sexual assault of Greenwood. Months later, Greenwood is murdered, strangled in her own garden. No evidence links prime suspect Frediani to the murder, but he is convicted of the assault. The murder case remains open, and Greenwood's bloody clothes and fingernail parings are stored. As advances in forensic DNA occur, the fifteen-year old murder is finally solved. Narrator Nadia May keeps the overly long tale absorbing. May handles Weinberg's interviews with Frediani, his family, Greenwood's family, and numerous genetic scientists with tact and taste. Her performance makes this carefully researched true-crime drama as fascinating as crime fiction. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
