Now a major television movie, this is the gripping, true-life story of the murder of Megan Kalajzich.

Two shots through the head at point blank range and Megan Kalajzich bleeds to death in her bed. Lying just inches away, her millionaire husband miraculously escapes the hitman's bullets.

A chilling, true-life tale of greed, money and passion, My Husband, My Killer follows a tangled murder plot, hatched by Megan's husband Andrew in the opulence of the Manly Pacific International Hotel and clinched in the seedy alleyways of Kings Cross where the killer was hired.

But why would anyone want to murder Megan, and who pulled the trigger?

'.all the ingredients and pace of a Hollywood thriller. From the opening sentences, the reader is hooked. Simpson and Harvey's narrative is filled with suspense. - WHO Weekly

'Each page bristles with detail and the main players are described in gritty but colourful minutiae. In describing the bizarre and bumbling manner in which the [murder] contract was executed, Simpson and Harvey are at their strongest.' - Sydney Morning Herald
