When they returned from their honeymoon, she was... More > a changed young woman. She had suffered severe side affects from Lariam, the anti-malarial drug. She never really recovered her mental health from that day. She had cyclical relapses of clinical depression, which began following the birth of her first baby.

He might have got away with it, they might have presumed suicide; except for the forensic evidence that convicted him: three long, weeping, vertical gouges in his right cheek, where she clawed him with her fingernails in a desperate fight for her life.
