Candy Montgomery and Betty Gore had a lot in common: They sang together in the Methodist church choir, their daughters were best friends, and their husbands had good jobs working for technology companies in the north Dallas suburbs known as Silicon Prairie. But beneath the placid surface of their seemingly perfect lives, both women simmered with unspoken frustrations and unanswered desires.

On a hot summer day in 1980, the secret passions and jealousies that linked Candy and Betty exploded into murderous rage. What happened next is usually the stuff of fiction. But the bizarre and terrible act of violence that occurred in Betty's utility room that morning was all too real.

Based on exclusive interviews with the Montgomery and Gore families, Evidence of Love is the riveting account of a gruesome tragedy and the trial that made national headlines when the defendant entered the most unexpected of pleas: not guilty by reason of self-defense (Fort Worth Star-Telegram).

Adapted into the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television movie A Killing in a Small Town, this chilling tale of sin and savagery will 'fascinate true crime aficionados' (Kirkus Reviews).

Its was a good book. I think I was expecting more drama from the characters.

Superbly written and well detailed account of a horrifying crime, what led up to it and its aftermath. The writing is amazingly good, going deep into the minds and hearts of these seemingly ordinary, good Christian people. An exploration of what makes some people snap into violence...really well done.

I think the book was well written and the narration was good, but whoa! I won't give away what happens but how do you kill someone with an ax, striking them 41 times and call it self defense? SMDH
