Book Description

3 Nov 2008
At thirty-nine, Nancy Kissel had it all: glamour, wealth and the royal lifestyle of the expatriate wife. Not to mention three young children and what a friend described as "the best marriage in the universe" to Robert Kissel, a hugely successful investment banker. But that marriage ended abruptly one November night in 2003 in the bedroom of their luxury apartment high above Hong Kong's glittering Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong prosecutors, who charged Nancy with murder, said she wanted to inherit Robert's millions and start a new life with her lover. She said she'd killed her husband in self-defence while fighting for her life against a brutal, cocaine-addicted husband. Her trial in 2005 captured attention worldwide, and less than a year after the verdict Rob's brother Andrew, a real estate tycoon facing prison for fraud and embezzlement was also found dead - tied up and stabbed in the basement of his multi-million dollar home by person or persons unknown.Never Enough is the harrowing true story of Robert and Andrew Kissel, who wanted to own the world but instead wound up murdered half a world apart; and of Nancy Kissel, a riddle wrapped inside an enigma, for whom having it all might not have been enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY... 27 Jun 2009
I enjoy the genre of true crime, and this author is an excellent chronicler of the evil that men do. In this book, he focuses on the Kissel family, in which two wealthy, well-educated brothers are both murdered on different occasions and by different people. One was bludgeoned to death, and the other was stabbed to death. What are the chances of that?.

The book tells the story of two good-looking, well-educated, highly intelligent brothers, Robert and Andrew Kissel. Both grew up under the thumb of Bill Kissel, a wealthy entrepreneur, who was an extremely domineering and harsh father. Robert Kissel, the younger brother, grew up to be a brilliant and successful investment banker. He married Nancy Keeshin, a college dropout working as a waitress at the time that they met. Andrew, the older brother, grew up to be a real estate developer. He married Hayley Wolff, a well-educated stock analyst and former world class skier.

The book focuses primarily of Robert's story, with Andrew as the secondary story, which pretty much mirrors the way life treated them. Robert's story is the more interesting one, as it has many juicy elements, such as marital infidelity, a fascinating foreign city in which the murder took place, and the glamorous life style of wealthy ex-pats , all laid out against the backdrop of some gothic family drama. Andrew's story, on the other hand, is more pathetic. He simply turned to a life of crime, lived way beyond his means, and embezzled money from the cooperative apartment building in which he lived.

The author skillfully outlines the events that led to the murders. In Robert's case, his wife's infidelity and her obsession with Michael Del Priore, her blue-collar lover, prompted her to do the unspeakable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shopping anyone? 3 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very entertaining read for several reasons! It can only be non-fiction, for what writer could dream up a fictional group of such awful human beings?! The main characters and their families are about as dis-functional and loathsome a bunch that you'll ever read about - the kind you love to hate! The author did a fine job of research and telling the story to make it a page turner...I simply had to see what happened next! In the end, they got what they deserved.

4.0 out of 5 stars More unpleasant people could scarse exist! 13 Mar 2010
By Jill Meyer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Joe Mcginnis cannot make any of this crew, the Kissels and their assorted family members-by-marriage seem, well, not unpleasant. Though nastiness is not an excuse for murder, it's hard, real hard, to generate much sympathy for either crime victims or perpetrators. Mcginnis does a good enough job wading through the sleeze, both in Hong Kong and in the US, in telling this story. But I'm left with thoughts that are better left unsaid in a public review.

Excellent true crime book read more like a thriller but left certain questions unanswered at the end. Shows you never know what may or in this case may not be happening behind closed doors

I've never read a book by him that wasn't good. He's a really great author and I really enjoyed this one. Nancy Kissel was a greedy, black-hearted spoiled person, who deserves to rot in prison for what she did to her husband.
