At any cost : a father's betrayal, a wife's murder, and a ten-year war for justice

Summary

Summary: "At Any Cost unravels the twisted story of Rod Covlin, whose unrepentant greed drove him to an unspeakable act of murder and betrayal that rocked New York City. Wealthy, beautiful, and brilliant, Shele Danishefsky had it all. After climbing Wall Street's corporate ladder to the top, she was eager to build a family with her much younger husband, a handsome Ivy League grad named Rod Covlin. But when Rod's hidden vices, from online gambling to rampant affairs, began to break through the surface, marital bliss soon gave way to a volatile divorce battle. Covlin was entirely supported by Shele's successful career, and her threats to cut him out of her will-and cut him off from the millions their two children would inherit-would destroy his lavish lifestyle. In late December 2009, Shele made arrangements to meet with her lawyer and change her will. She would never make it to the meeting. Two days later, on New Year's Eve, Shele was found dead in the bathtub of her Upper West Side apartment. Police ruled it an accident, and Shele's deeply Orthodox Jewish family quickly buried their loved one without an autopsy. But her death was only the first obstacle in Covlin's ruthless pursuit of her fortune. As the two families waged war over custody of Shele's children-and their inheritance- Covlin concocted a series of increasingly unhinged schemes, even plotting to kill his own parents, to get his hands on his wife's money. And as investigators closed in on Covlin, he decided in a final, desperate act to frame his own daughter for her mother's death. Journalists Rebecca Rosenberg and Selim Algar reconstruct the ten years that passed between the day Shele was found dead and the day her killer was finally brought to justice in this chilling portrait of how one man's irrepressible greed devolved into obsession, manipulation, and murder"--
