Cape May Court House

A Death in the Night

No one in Cape May Court House, New Jersey was surprised when Eric Thomas, a popular young local doctor, sued the Ford Motor Company for the wrongful death of his pregnant wife, Tracy. After all, the accident they were involved in was minor and they were driving a big, powerful Explorer. Nevertheless, Tracy died in the accident, leaving behind not just her husband, but also her cherished young daughter Alix.

Backed by the medical examiner's findings, the lawsuit claimed that the Explorer's air bag inflated improperly, causing injuries that resulted in Tracy's suffocation. But what starts out as a simple product-liability case rapidly evolves into something altogether different when Ford alleges that Tracy Thomas died not from a defective air bag, but as the result of manual strangulation. Before long, Ford becomes a de facto prosecutor and Eric Thomas stands accused of murdering his wife.

Investigative journalist Lawrence Schiller, bestselling author of American Tragedy and Perfect Murder, Perfect Town, exposes the tactics used by the attorneys on both sides of this civil suit, and uncovers the lie that eventually torpedoes one party's case.
