Publisher Comments:

AN AMERICAN HERO.

By the age of twenty-four, Air Force Staff Sergeant Mike Severance had already survived a series of missions in Afghanistan and Iraq. But his life back at home, in Texas, would prove a lot more dangerous…

A WOMAN WITH A DEADLY PLAN.

In the winter of 2005, Mikes wife, a veterinarian named Wendi Mae Davidson, reported him missing. Wendi told police that Mike had been acting erratically—visiting local clubs, staying out late, sometimes not coming home at all. She filed for divorce the very next day.

A CASE THAT SHOCKED THE NATION.

Eventually Mikes body turned up in a stock pond on a private ranch. Investigators described a corpse that was weighted down with two cinder blocks, a rock, a boat anchor, and other equipment. It had also been stabbed forty-one times with a knife. But an autopsy report told a different story: That the cause of death was exposure to pentobarbital and phenobarbital, drugs commonly used in veterinary medicine. All the evidence pointed to Wendi…and soon she would  be found guilty of murder in the first degree.

Synopsis:

Fanning recounts the story of Wendi Mae Davidson, a 28-year-old veterinarian who drugs her husband, stabs him 41 times, and leaves his body in a pond near their San Angelo, Texas, home--all to keep custody of the baby that her departing husband had wanted to raise. Original.
