Summary: Nancy Kissel had it all: glamour, wealth, and what a friend described as "the best marriage in the universe." That marriage--to Merrill Lynch investment banker Robert Kissel--ended abruptly one night in 2003 in their luxury apartment high above Hong Kong's glittering Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong prosecutors, who charged Nancy with murder, said she wanted to inherit Rob's millions and start a new life with a blue-collar lover. She said she'd killed while fighting for her life against an abusive, cocaine-addicted husband. Less than a year later, Rob's brother Andrew, a Connecticut real estate tycoon facing prison for fraud and embezzlement, was found stabbed in the back in the basement of his multimillion-dollar mansion. This is the harrowing true story of these two brothers, who grew up wanting to own the world but instead wound up murdered half a world apart; and of a modern American woman for whom having it all might not have been enough.--From publisher description.
