Betrayal In Blood

ISBN: 078601766X
Pinnacle, New York, 2006. reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: photographs. reprint. Mommy won't be with us anymore." That's what attorney Kevin C. Bryant, 45, told his two young sons in the spring of 2003. At the time, blonde, pretty, 26-year-old Tabatha Bryant was alive and well in an upscale suburb of Rochester, New York. But that was about to change - because Bryant knew his wife was cheating - and he intended to end the affair by ending her life. On June 14, 2003, he called 911 to report Tabatha slain by an unknown intruder who'd shot her in the eye with a.22 and repeatedly stabbed her in the neck and upper body. A drug bust led to Cassidy Green's confession that she'd driven the getaway car. She fingered boyfriend Cyril Winebrenner as the killer. He and Kevin Bryant were buddies who'd regularly gone on cocaine-fuelled sex binges with hookers. Astoundingly, Winebrenner was also Tabatha's half-brother - but Bryant's $5,000 had convinced him that money is thicker than blood. In a trial that shook "Country Club Row," prosecutors would present evidence and testimonies that revealed ever more sordid details, leading to final justice for the lawyer who tried to get away with murder. – rear panel blurb the book has been slightly over opened between pages 248 and 249 there is no other damage to describe.
