"Perfection Is Murder has a total of 280 pages which are papers from writer 'Rebecca C. Long, P. g. Mccormack'. Lauren Fulghum studied at Harvard University to become a pediatrician. She could have made a living as a model with her willowy figure, shoulder-length blonde hair, long shapely legs, and blue eyes the color of a robin's egg. Education was the center of her life. After graduation, she accepted a job with Massachusetts General Hospital. She worked tirelessly for two years trying to forget a devastating relationship while in college. Finally Lauren decided to get back into the real world again. One day she drove over to Harvard Square Commons to mingle with the students. That was the day her whole life changed. She met a handsome student named, Jack Harper. They dated steadily for four months and then got married. Lauren didn't have a clue that it was Jack's plan to find a wealthy woman to help support him through college. She knew very little about him and had thrown caution to the wind. Lauren was thirty-one and she longed to have a family. A family was the last thing Jack wanted. He was obsessed with having things perfect. His real personality emerged as being self-centered, greedy, abusive, and a womanizer. He discovered she had a $500,000 insurance policy and began to think of ways to kill Lauren. In the process of his plans, Lisa, a very rich girl friend from his past and a widower, gets in touch with him. Greed consumes Jack. In the end, it is Jack that dies when he falls from a cliff high up in the mountains and Lauren is accused of murder. Rebecca C.
