Description

The true story of heiress Sunny von Bulow's coma and the attempted-murder trial of her husband, Clausthe case that inspired the film Reversal of Fortune. On December 21, 1980, millionaire socialite Sunny Von Bulow was found unconscious on her bathroom floor. She would remain in a coma for twenty-seven years. Although her condition appeared to be the result of hypoglycemia, Sunny's children suspected their stepfather, the debonair Claus Von Bulow, of attempting to murder his wife and abscond with her fortune. Claus went on trial for attempted murder in 1982, initiating a legal circus that would last for years. In the greatest society trial of the twentieth century, the opulence of Newport and New York provides a backdrop for one of the most intriguing family feuds of all time. In this comprehensive account of the trial and its aftermath, Wright draws on court transcripts and interviews with those involved to present an unparalleled behind-the-scenes look into the legal proceedings as well as the Von Bulows' private lives.
