Twisted Triangle is the first complete narrative thriller about the sensational story of Margo Bennett, a married FBI agent who had a love affair with bestselling author Patricia Cornwell and whose jealous husband, Gene Bennet, a superstar FBI undercover agent, kidnapped and attempted to murder her. When the case first came to trial, it was reported in Vanity Fair, Newsweek, People, the Washington Post, and the New York Times. Almost every profile of Cornwell, written in the United States and abroad every time she releases a book, mentions this case and her relationship with Margo. Margo also was the inspiration for the heroine in Hostage Negotiator, a TV movie that came out in 2001. Opening up for the first time, Margo Bennett has given Caitlin Rother complete personal access, sitting for interviews and turning over photographs, documents, records, and private papers. Twisted Triangle includes the crazy dynamics of Margo and Gene Bennett's family; the brilliant FBI undercover career of Margo's husband, Gene; the lesbian affair with celebrity author Pat Cornwell; Gene's reactive kidnapping and attempt to kill Margo; Gene's insanity defense; the trial that validates Margo's story and shows she was telling the truth all along; and a happy ending to her tale of survival.

From the Inside Flap:

Twisted Triangle

Twisted Triangle tells the compelling true story of Margo Bennett, a married FBI agent whose jealous, vengeful husband, Gene Bennett, a former undercover FBI agent, kidnapped and attempted to murder her after she had?a secret love affair with best-selling crime novelist Patricia Cornwell.

This series of bizarre events caused a sensation when it made national news a decade ago, but the whole incredible story has never before been told. Only now have Margo Bennett, her friends, and family granted investigative journalist Caitlin Rother exclusive access to personal interviews, previously sealed court records, diaries, letters, and other formerly confidential material. The book details the crazy dynamics of Margo and Gene Bennett's marriage and family, the rise and fall of their FBI careers, and Margo's clandestine lesbian affair with celebrity author Patricia Cornwell. Stranger than fiction, this story describes the makings of Gene's complex plan, his insanity defense, and the trial that ultimately vindicated Margo and sent Gene to prison, where he remains today.

Margo Bennett lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she is a captain of the University of California, Berkeley, campus police department. Gene Bennett is incarcerated in Virginia, not far from the Washington DC area, where the events of this fascinating true crime narrative took place.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Twisted Triangle

"This book will haunt you. It will move you to look at some of the harsh realities of life in a new way. A powerful story—and masterfully written."
Aphrodite Jones, best-selling author, All She Wanted and Cruel Sacrifice

"A harrowing tale of one woman's struggle to maintain a balance between being a mother, an FBI agent, and dealing with a corrupt husband also an FBI agent. A must-read."
Joseph D. Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco

"Hitchcock wishes he'd dreamed it up. Capote wishes he'd written it. Rother's mesmerizing narrative chronicles a wife's heroic struggle against great odds to survive her psychopathic husband's elaborate scheme to make her murder the perfect crime. This spellbinding tale offers an added treat—it's true."
Marcus Stern, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and author, The Wrong Stuff: The Extraordinary Saga of Randy "Duke" Cunningham, the Most Corrupt Congressman Ever Caught
