Blind Justice: A Murder, a Scandal, and a Brother's Search to Avenge His Sister's Death

Ray Gibson, Author, Randall Turner, Author, Edie Gibson, With St. Martin's Press $21.95 (370p) ISBN 978-0-312-06306-1
Dianne Masters, wife of Chicago lawyer Alan Masters, disappeared in March 1982; her husband and police maintained that she had run off because she had a lover, planned to divorce Masters and remarry. Her brother, Turner, however, convinced that she had been killed, kept up pressure on local and county police. As the investigation revealed that Alan Masters was involved in questionable dealings and paid off lawyers and judges to fix court cases, the scope of a plot became clear, contend the authors: Masters evidently arranged to have his wife killed with the connivance of Michael Corbitt, police chief of Willow Springs, Ill., and James Keating, a lieutenant in the Cook County Sheriff's Police Department. All three were found guilty of various counts but not of murder. The book, by staffers of the Chicago Tribune , is remarkable mainly in its depiction of corruption in and around the Second City. And the cast of characters is so extensive that the lack of an index is sorely felt. Photos not seen by PW. (Nov.)
