On June 25, 1989, the naked corpse of schoolteacher Susan Reinert was found wedged into her hatchback car in a hotel parking lot near Philadelphia's "Main Line."nbsp;nbsp;Her two children had vanished.nbsp;nbsp;The Main Line Murder Case burst upon the headlines--and wasn't resolved for seven years.nbsp;nbsp;Now, master crime writer Joseph Wambaugh reconstructs the case from its roots, recounting the details, drama, players and pawns in this bizarre crime that shocked the nation and tore apart a respectable suburban town.nbsp;nbsp;The massive FBI and state police investigation ultimately centered on two men.nbsp;nbsp;Dr. Jay C. Smith--By day he was principal of Upper Merion High School where Susan Reinert taught.nbsp;nbsp;At night he was a sadist who indulged in porno, drugs, and weapons.nbsp;nbsp;William Bradfield--He was a bearded and charismatic English teacher and classics scholar, but his real genius was for juggling women--three at a time.nbsp;nbsp;One of those women was Susan Reinert.nbsp;nbsp;How these two men are connected, how the brilliant murder was carried off, and how the investigators closed this astounding case makes for Wambaugh's most compelling book yet.
