Praise for Twisted Triangle

"This book will haunt you. It will move you to look at some of the harsh realities of life in a new way. A powerful story-and masterfully written."
-Aphrodite Jones

best-selling author, All She Wanted and Cruel Sacrifice

"A harrowing tale of one woman's struggle to maintain a balance between being a mother, an FBI agent, and dealing with a corrupt husband also an FBI agent. A must-read."
-Joseph D. Pistone

aka Donnie Brasco

"Hitchcock wishes he'd dreamed it up. Capote wishes he'd written it. Rother's mesmerizing narrative chronicles a wife's heroic struggle against great odds to survive her psychopathic husband's elaborate scheme to make her murder the perfect crime. This spellbinding tale offers an added treat-it's true."
-Marcus Stern

I loved this book. Couldn't tear myself away. Aphrodite Jones is a great author. She is thorough in content, some humor, but mostly fact and emotions that we all can relate to. Down to earth, easy to read, fun book.
