Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roger and Penny Scaggs seemed a poster couple for family values. Evangelical Christians living in booming Austin, Texas, in the mid-1990s, they were respected leaders in their church and community. As Roger diligently worked his way up the high-tech corporate ladder, Penny kept a pristine home and coached similarly devout young women on how to be perfect wives. But on a windy March evening, this godly woman met the devil head-on. And when the police discovered her lifeless body—repeatedly bludgeoned with a lead pipe, then mutilated with a knife from her own spotless kitchen—they were shocked by the rage and savagery behind her slaying.

The Good Wife is a startling true story of greed, hatred, betrayal, and an unimaginable murder—a tale of the dark decay that can be hidden behind a facade of saintliness when a marriage seemingly made in heaven descends into hell.

Synopsis:

Penny Scaggs was deeply devoted to God, her husband, and their community in Austin, Texas. She was the perfect wife for Roger Scaggs, a respected businessman and church elder--until she was brutally murdered. This chronicle is a startling true story of greed, hatred, betrayal, and the tale of a marriage seemingly made in heaven that descends into hell. Original.

About the Author

This account of the murder of Penny Scaggs and the trial of her husband, Roger, is the ninth published nonfiction book written by Clint Richmond. His 1995 Selena!, the tragic story of the murder of the young Tejano music star, was #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. His 2005 collaboration, Red Star Rogue, was also a New York Times bestseller. Richmond, a former Dallas Times Herald news reporter, covered the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the trial of Jack Ruby for the murder of accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. He was assigned to federal and state courts and law enforcement beats in Dallas for a number of years. Later, as a freelance journalist, he covered the Rocky Mountain and West Coast regions for such publications as People magazine and has been a contributing writer to Time, Newsweek, and numerous other periodicals. The author lives with his wife, also a freelance writer, in Austin, Texas.
