The wrong crime

Nancy Crampton-Brophy, 68, an American ‘romance’ novelist whose website describes her as a “selfish being”, has been arrested at her home and charged with shooting dead in June her husband of 26 years, Daniel Brophy.

Among her works is a series with the tagline “wrong never felt so right.” Its titles include The Wrong Hero, The Wrong Brother, and – prophetically – The Wrong Husband.
