Alienation of Affection

Robert Hardaway has put Denver's "Trial of the Century" on paper, delivering a true story so bizarre that the reader may refuse to believe it is not fictional. Gertrude Patterson lived with a rich man in a relationship that was strictly platonic. Later her abusive husband tried to use her to blackmail her rich friend. When she put an end to the blackmail and her husband's life, the press had a field day. Sex, scandal, obsession, betrayal, murder, even the fateful voyage of the Titanic makes this a must-read story.
