When Vonlee "Nicole" Titlow and her aunt, Billie Jean Rogers, came home from a night of gambling in a casino near Detroit, they told police they found Billie's husband unconscious on the floor of the Rogers' mansion. Just another of his alcoholic benders, they assumed. But this time, Donald Rogers didn't wake up.

The investigation would reveal the sordid story behind the death of a self-made millionaire--including transgender adventures in Chicago and Denver, a tangled web of dueling addictions, a mind-boggling history of out-of-control spending, and how a sex change operation may have fueled a motive for murder. Renowned investigative journalist M. William Phelps exposes the riveting details behind one of the most astonishing real-life thrillers to date.

M. William Phelps writes true crime with precision and care. He gives readers an honest look at the crimes through the victims and their families eyes, riveting us all the way through. Anytime he writes something I am sure to pick it up because I know the quality of work will be great and I know I will become glued to the pages until the very end. This one in particular is really great. Having never heard of this crime before, I was glad to dive right in and I wasn’t disappointed at all. I felt like I really got to know all of the lives that were affected by the crime and I felt like I was there with the detectives as they were putting together the puzzle of what happened. With that being said, I highly recommend this book (and others by the author) for those who enjoy reading true crime novels. In all honestly, this one was riveting, interesting, and it captured me all the way through.
