Victoria Day, 1992. Police responding to a 911 call in one of Vancouver’s wealthiest neighborhoods confront a bloody murder scene. A woman riddled with stab wounds lies dying on the kitchen floor. They immediately arrest her husband. When Larry O’Grady is charged with the murder of his wife of 32 years, there is doubt about his guilt. Friends are disbelieving. Family is shocked. What police don’t know is that there is another suspect for the crime, a suspect close to the couple that Larry refuses to acknowledge throughout the legal ordeal to follow. More than twenty years later, author Susan Riley has uncovered a collection of her Uncle Larry’s writing that sheds light on the mystery of what happened that night. Armed with personal knowledge, newspapers, trial transcripts, war records, interviews, stories and letters, the former journalist and lawyer unravels the tragedy of a family grappling with mental illness, and the bittersweet choice that became Larry’s last resort.
