Never Seen Again

A Ruthless Lawyer, His Beautiful Wife, and the Murder that Tore a Family Apart

Jeanne King

St. Martin's True Crime

Perry March was a brilliant attorney working for one of the top law firms in Nashville, Tennessee. When he married Janet Levine, a painter whose beauty was as striking as her art, he seemed to have it all. But their marriage began to deteriorate, and soon he and Janet did nothing but fight—often in front of their two young children. Janet decided to make an appointment with a divorce lawyer…

When Janet first went missing, Perry told family members and police that she had gone on vacation, then left him and the kids for good. Since there was no body to be found, and no evidence linking him to any crime, Perry was a free man. But as police kept digging for clues, shocking facts about Perry’s past came to the surface—infidelity, money trouble, sexual obsession. It would be ten years before authorities apprehended Perry, who had been living a double-life in Mexico. He would be extradited back to Nashville… and charged with his wife’s murder.

Chapter one

"I'm Not the Monster I've Been Made Out to Be"

Perry March walked awkwardly toward the Northwest Airlines departure gate at Los Angeles International Airport, a white terry- cloth towel thrown over his hands to disguise the handcuffs binding his wrists. He was slovenly dressed. He had not shaved in almost a week.

If Perry was embarrassed by his unusual circumstances, he tried hard not to show it to the other passengers in the terminal, who hardly gave the unkempt man a glance. As he neared the Jetway, he felt the chain belt around his waist tighten. That's when
