Twisted Triangle is the first complete narrative thriller about the sensational story of Margo Bennett, a married FBI agent who had a love affair with bestselling author Patricia Cornwell and whose jealous husband, Gene Bennet, a superstar FBI undercover agent, kidnapped and attempted to murder her. When the case first came to trial, it was reported in Vanity Fair, Newsweek, People, the Washington Post, and the New York Times. Almost every profile of Cornwell, written in the United States and abroad every time she releases a book, mentions this case and her relationship with Margo. Margo also was the inspiration for the heroine in Hostage Negotiator, a TV movie that came out in 2001.

Opening up for the first time, Margo Bennett has given Caitlin Rother complete personal access, sitting for interviews and turning over photographs, documents, records, and private papers. Twisted Triangle includes the crazy dynamics of Margo and Gene Bennett's family; the brilliant FBI undercover career of Margo's husband, Gene; the lesbian affair with celebrity author Pat Cornwell; Gene's reactive kidnapping and attempt to kill Margo; Gene's insanity defense; the trial that validates Margo's story and shows she was telling the truth all along; and a happy ending to her tale of survival.
