The unimaginable crime of filicide takes on the cast of tragic inevitability in this haunting true tale of violence, greed, revenge, and death. Fusing the narrative power of an award-winning novelist and the detailed research of an experienced investigator, Darcy O'Brien unfolds the story of Dr. John Dale Cavaness, the southern Illinois physician and surgeon who in December 1984 was charged with the murder of his son Sean. Outraged by the arrest of the skilled medical practitioner who selflessly attended to their needs, the people of Little Egypt rose to his defense. In the trial, however, a radically different, disquieting portrait of Dr. Cavaness would emerge. For throughout the three decades that he enjoyed the admiration and respect of his community, Cavaness was privately terrorizing his family, abusing his employees, and making disastrous financial investments as well as brawling and womanizing. What was not revealed in the trial, however, was that seven years earlier, in a homicide that had never been solved, the body of Cavanesss firstborn son, Mark, had been found shot dead in the woods of Little Egypt. In addition to a compelling chronicle that uncovers the truth behind two ghastly crimes and lays bare the Jekyll Hyde psyche of their perpetrator, Murder in Little Egypt brings into stark Midwestern light the hidden, gothic underside of an America bred on violence and bathed in blood. Stunning material, Nobel Prize-winner Seamus Heaney A meticulous account ... an implicit indictment of a culture that condones and encourages violent behavior in men.

    When I still lived in the states, the little town where this happened was only 40 miles from our home.. I remember when this happened, one of our car clubs was based in Eldorado....
    Pretty scary, huh? You never know who your neighbors are. :)
