Summary: At 9:00 on the morning of March 6, 1963, in the quiet neighborhood of Highland Park, Mrs. Fritz Pearson glanced out her window and saw something almost unimaginable: slumped on the front steps of the home across the street was a woman, partially clothed in a blue bathrobe and bloodied beyond recognition. The woman, Mrs. Pearson would come to learn, was her beloved neighbor Carol Thompson, wife and mother of four. nbsp; Earlier that morning, T. Eugene Thompson, known to friends as "Cotton," dropped his son off at school and headed to the office, where he worked as a criminal attorney.nbsp; At 8:25 am, he phoned home, later telling police that he did so to confirm evening plans with Carol.nbsp; Mr. Thompson lied. nbsp; Through police records, court transcripts, family papers, and extensive interviews, William Swanson has recreated Middle America's "crime of the century," the deadly plot by a husband that made headlines around the world. But Dial M: The Murder of Carol Thompson also tracks the lives of the Thompsons' children. Their journey from disbelief to acceptance culminates in a private family trial where they decide whether their father truly was responsible for the violent act that crushed their childhood and forever altered their views of the world.nbsp; nbsp;
