Some people just need killing. Marlena Altizer Durst lives in her husband's shadow. He controls her every move-what she wears, the food she eats, and the friends she's allowed to make. If she disobeys, there are . . . consequences. And he has all the power. To outsiders, it seems that she leads a fairy-tale life. But nobody ever wonders if Cinderella was happy after she married the prince. Marlena has traded freedom and safety for luxurious imprisonment, and most days, that seems like a bad bargain. Death may be the only exit she's allowed. Just like his first wife. And his second. Unless she flips the script.
