It’s 1999 and American overseas student Rachel Souza is over the moon. She has finally met her Prince Charming at university in England: the handsome Neil Entwistle. The happy couple soon marry, have a baby and move to Hopkinton, Massachusetts to be with Rachel’s family. Life seems perfect. But behind the scenes, things aren’t so rosy. Neil has racked up massive debts and is living a secret online life of eBay scamming and hardcore pornography. Fearing exposure, he shoots Rachel and Lilian at the family home, and goes on the run. He is eventually caught in London and extradited back to the USA for trial, where he’s convicted and sentenced to life without parole for the brutal double murder.
