While Never Enough doesn’t match Joe McGinniss’ masterwork, Fatal Vision, it’s riveting and compulsively readable nonetheless. Why did Nancy Kissel — mother of three, pampered wife of Hong Kong investment banker Robert Kissel — lace her husband’s milk shake with sedatives and then bludgeon him to death?
