More Than You'll Ever Know
In 1985, Lore Rivera married Andres Russo in Mexico City while already married to Fabian Rivera in Laredo, Texas. She remained married to both men, alternating time between Laredo and Mexico through her career as an international banker — until the truth came out, and one husband murdered the other.
In 2017, Cassie Bowman, an aspiring true crime writer, discovers Lore's story. Cassie convinces Lore to let her write a book about Lore's double life. But the more Cassie talks to Lore, the more she finds herself questioning the facts of the murder. And it’s her relentless determination to uncover the truth that threatens to expose the secrets both women are hiding.
Told through the alternating timelines of Cassie and Lore, More Than You'll Ever Know is a beautiful examination of marriage, motherhood and victimhood that forces the reader to reckon with the moral ambiguities of true crime and the responsibility writers have towards their subjects.
