    A perfect life. A perfect lie.
    
    When Nancy Cooper moved from Canada to Cary, North Carolina with her new husband Brad, their future was bright: living in one of the most picturesque towns in the US, the couple mingled with neighbors, attended parties, and raised two daughters.
    
    Then, on July 14th, 2008, the façade came crashing down when Nancy’s strangled body was found in a storm pond.
    
    Nancy’s husband claimed that she had gone for a jog and never come back. But as the police investigation deepened, and as Brad was brought to trial for murdering his wife, a complex web of affairs and lies was uncovered involving multiple residents of Cary’s idyllic neighborhoods. At the heart of it stood the Coopers’ soured marriage, Nancy’s threat to leave with the children, and her own cold-blooded murder. It would take a mountain of damning evidence before justice was served.

    This is the never-before-told story of the great Chicago crime family called The Outfit, the secretive organized crime cartel that began its reign in prohibition-era Chicago before becoming the real puppet master of Hollywood, Las Vegas, and Washington D.C. Moving with purpose and panache, The Outfit blended effortlessly with upperworld corporate leaders, Hollywood moguls, and national political icons. It was only after a fifty-year run that their world started to crumble in the 1970s. With extensive research including recently released FBI files, first-ever access to the voluminous working papers of the Kefauver Committee, original interviews with Outfit associates and members of the Fourth Estate, and first-time access to the journals of Outfit chieftain Murray Humphreys' long-in-hiding widow, Russo uncovers sixty years of corruption and influence, and examines the disconcerting shadow history of the United States.
