Psychotherapist Dr. Robi Ludwig and journalist Matt Birkbeck examine the causes and implications of marital homicide. They team up to explore the "underlying darkness inherent in so many marriages" and offer in-depth descriptions of the 10 personality characteristics that may lead to killer spouses, including poor impulse control, controlling behavior, explosive rage, feelings of victimization/rejection, and pathologically idealizing the partner. Narrator Ellen Archer's voice is earnest and objective as she reads chilling examples from the high-profile cases of Clara Harris, Betty Broderick, Scott Peterson, and Rabbi Fred Neulander. Archer deftly handles the authors' explanations of the motivations behind the murders. Her clear reading provides unflinching insights for listeners.
