    OkInteresting story about a serial wife murderer who is a despicable and evil degenerate but the book was a bit too long repeating some things over and over If the author had shortened the story and minimized the repeated story telling it would have been a enjoyable read It is scary to know that we have such vapid evil living in people who appear to be human but are just shells of a person but able to mimicking human beings while planning to do us tremendous harm

    Good ReadThis book covers the atrocious acts of a husband who murdered two wives for insurance money It gives enough detail to understand the case but does not get deep into the weeds It is an intriguing story that is plainly laid out

    A Well Told Story of a Life of CrimeCarlton Smith has put together a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle of a mans life his crimes and the trial that led to his conviction for two murders and lucrative insurance fraud His illegitimate birth to a chronically ill mother an abusive father and a life of poverty seemed to shape his development into a man with a deep seated hatred of women the habit of chronic lying to make himself appear tough even dangerous and a desire for the good life by deception and murderA psychiatrist could have a field day analyzing the root causes of Randy Roth's criminal behavior The author lays out a well researched picture of the hand Randy was dealt and how he chose to play it From his early life he portrayed himself as someone you would not want to crossHis relationships with women many women followed a pattern set early on To draw them in especially the four women he chose to marry he would play the charming romantic but after the wedding he turned cold critical and controlling Two of the wives divorced him and the other two as the marriages began the inevitable collapse met an accidental death With the large life insurance policies he had on them he was able to uickly end the unhappy marriage and profit by the wives' deathHis first victim a mother of a young girl was dispatched by pushing her off a cliff Ten years later a different method was used drowning her while her young boys sat on the shore He got lucky the first time and escaped the law but the bizarre drowning death and his emotionless reaction to it spurred the interest of two detectives whose amazing painstaking efforts were handed on to two dedicated lawyers who after a lengthy harrowing trial came away with a guilty verdict from the jury The coverage of the trial in the book was excellent reading The book was a little long with occasional repetition but the author painstakingly looked at each piece of the case and based on the remarkable work of the detectives and lawyers was able to present the readers with a coherent picture of a complex man and his cold calculated crimes At one point the author compares Randy's behavior to a predator in nature who uses deception to entice and entrap his victims The old poem with the line come into my parlor said the spider to the fly says it all about the chameleon like Randy Roth

    This book is about Randy Roth who apparently killed two of his four wives I say 'apparetly' because both wives died a decade apart in what at first appeared to be accidents If Roth had been a better actor he might never have been charged but his behavior and total lack of emotion immediately after the deaths led law enforcement to suspect these were not accidental deaths Without any physical evidence he was never actually charged with the murder of his first wife; but after the death of another wife a decade later he was finally charged in the death of the 2nd wife who died in an 'accident' Law enforcement in a different jurisdiction than the 1st 'accidental' death worked very hard to get enough information about Roth's personal and criminal background and interviewed enough people involved in both deaths to put together a compelling circumstantial case that the jury bought into; and so he was eventually convictedI like the way the book was laid out chronilogically It was well written and very easy to follow
