In the summer of 1985, in his exclusive Manhattan apartment, Robert Bierenbaum, a reputable and widely respected surgeon, murdered his wife Gail. According to prosecutors, he then drove her body to an airstrip, and dumped it into the Atlantic Ocean from a single-engine private plane. The next day he reported her missing.Gail's parents had been thrilled to learn she was marrying Robert Bierenbaum. He seemed to be the perfect match for their daughter. He was from a well-to-do family, a medical student who spoke five languages fluently, a skier, and he even had a pilot's licence. But Gail soon came to learn of her husband's dark side. She filed a police report on one occasion, when Robert had tried to choke her because he caught her smoking. She also alleged that he had tried to kill her cat because he was jealous of it. For years, Gail's sister pleaded with her to run for her life. Even her therapist warned her that she could eventually die at the hands of the man she married.Fifteen years after this unspeakable, unfathomable crime, a jury found Robert Bierenbaum guilty of murder. This gripping account reveals the sinister hidden life of this privileged professional.
