Murder in Little Egypt

Darcy O'Brien, Author Onyx Books $4.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-451-40167-0
In what PW called a ``riveting true-crime account,'' we read about John Dale Cavaness, a native son who practiced medicine in ``Little Egypt,'' the southern triangle of Illinois. For a time one of the most beloved men in the area, Cavaness led a secret life--he abused his family, squandered his considerable income on drink and drugs, and eventually killed two of his sons, presumably to collect the insurance.
