Sandrine’s Case by Thomas H. Cook

Sandrine's CaseSam Madison, a supercilious college professor, husband, and father, is on trial for murdering his beautiful wife, whom others thought to have committed suicide.

The story revolves around the trial, but more closely around the theme that Sam’s deceased wife Sandrine thought Sam to have been a kind and thoughtful man early in their relationship. She thought that he had become jaded and hardened over the years, losing a bit of his humanity.

Sam reflects often on their last days and months together, after Sandrine’s diagnosis of Lou Gerig’s disease.

Did Sam kill Sandrine? What does his daughter, Alexandria, think?

Only reading Cook’s thought provoking pages about intellectual life in a small college town will reveal the truth, and with interesting plots twists as well.
