Perfect husband : the true story of the trusting bride who discovered her husband was a coldblooded killer by Gary Provost( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 626 libraries worldwide
Lisa Fotopoulos could not have asked for a more loving, caring, and affectionate spouse than Kosta. Her parents adored him; he was the nice young man that they had always dreamed Lisa would marry. But behind Kosta's innocent face and seductive charm, he was anything but the perfect husband. The sun-drenched shores of Daytona Beach, Florida, provided a model setting for their marriage. A wealthy and respected businesswoman, Lisa had always been outspoken when it came to keeping the criminal element clear of the boardwalk where her family owned and operated the Joyland Amusement Center. Now her husband wanted to open up a pool hall, the kind of place that attracted lowlifes. But Kosta insisted that Top Shots would be different, and put Lisa's mind at ease with his usual gentle persuasion. But Top Shots soon became a haven for runaways, prostitutes and smalltime hoodlums--with Kosta as their ringleader. He ran a counterfeiting ring, dealt in drugs, arms, stolen cars...and had an affair with Deidre Hunt, an attractive, bikini-clad Top Shots waitress who harassed customers for tips. Abused as a child, Deidre was a drifter, sexually voracious and reckless. Kosta and Deidre were a match made in hell, an amoral couple whose appetite for ultimate sensation took them over the edge. One night, in the seclusion of nearby woods, Deidre shot a teenage boy to death--a hideous execution captured by Kosta on videotape. Their murderous spree had just begun. Meanwhile, strange things started happening to Lisa. Within several weeks she was in two near-fatal car crashes and was accosted at gunpoint in her office. Her devoted husband joked about her driving and gave her a gun to protect herself. Shortly before sunrise on November 4, 1989, while Lisa and Kosta slept peacefully, a stranger entered their bedroom and drew a gun. The intruder's bullet brought their storybook marriage to a shattering end, revealing a tangled web of greed and depravity that shook the city of Daytona Beach to its core.--From dust jacket
