He was Robert Blake, former child actor, acclaimed star of In Cold Blood , an iconic '70's TV detective in Baretta. By the late '90's, he was a troubled has-been coasting on the fumes of past success. She was Bonny Lee Bakley, a Hollywood parasite and con artist known for elaborate Internet sex scams and a shameless pursuit of money and fame. She settled for Blake. It was a doomed relationship that came to a dead end on May 4, 2001, when Bonny was shot to death in a parked car on a dark Hollywood side street. Eleven months later, Blake was charged with the murder of his wife, the mother of their child-a crime that would reveal the sordid secrets of their marriage.

Bestselling journalist Dennis McDougal and senior TV Guide correspondent Mary Murphy uncover the lives of two violently dysfunctional lovers who crashed head-on in a squalid soap opera of sexual and physical abuse, alcohol and drugs, desperate betrayals between husband and wife, and rumours of incest, death threats, and murder for hire.
