At thirty-nine, Nancy Kissel had it all: the royal lifestyle of the expatriate wife, three young children, and what a friend described as “the best marriage in the universe.” That marriage—to investment banker Robert Kissel—ended one November night in 2003 in their luxury apartment high above Hong Kong’s glittering Victoria Harbour when Robert was murdered and Nancy became the prime suspect. Her 2005 trial captivated Hong Kong’s expatriate community and attracted global attention. Less than a year after the jury returned its unexpected verdict, Rob’s brother, Andrew, was also found dead, stabbed in the back at his multimillion-dollar Greenwich mansion.

Never Enough is the harrowing true story of two brothers, who grew up wanting to own the world but instead wound up murdered half a world apart, and of Nancy Kissel, a modern American woman for whom having it all might not have been enough.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It’s riveting and compulsively readable...McGinniss patiently unravels the case with plenty of fresh reporting.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “McGinniss brilliantly deconstructs the highly dysfunctional Kissels...You can’t argue with his ability to tell a good story. Readers of Never Enough get front-row seats to someone else’s family horror fest.”

    USA Today

  • “McGinniss...makes it absorbingly believable.”

    New York Daily News

  • “The author of the true crime classic Fatal Vision returns with a double-barreled homicide narrative… Joe McGinniss’ account of these family tragedies, one of them still unsolved, draws on his access to numerous Kissel relatives and friends.”

    BarnesandNoble.com, editorial review

  • “Readers have a real treat waiting for them in Joe McGinniss’ latest book.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “In McGinniss’ compelling account, the Kissel family—full of potential but riven by endless battles among the brothers and their sister and father—represent the American tragedy in which ambition and the pursuit of wealth turn deadly.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The Kissel family appeared to have it all…However, behind the glorious façade of these two families lay darkness and disaster…McGinniss does a fine job of bringing together the numerous threads to create a riveting story. Narrated by Michael McConnohie, this book should find a home in libraries with true crime collections.”

    Library Journal

  • “This is a mesmerizing tale, with more twists and turns than most steamy crime novels. The irony of two wasted lives makes this cautionary tale perfect reading for a chilly autumn evening.”

    Tucson Citizen

  • “Reader Michael McConnohie’s superb performance brings the Kissel family to life with a paced, breathless style that leaves the listener waiting for every line. McConnohie’s portrayal of Nancy is particularly memorable, seeming to invade her psyche to discover whether her tales of physical and verbal abuse are true or the machinations of a troubled soul.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jessica | 2/11/2014

    " Never Enough was the type of book that I didn't want to put down. It told the story of Rob Kissel's life and death very well, keeping the reader on the edge of his or her seat. The very end of the book gives you a tiny bit of insight into the murder of Rob Kissel's brother, Andrew. To read more about both Rob's and Andrew's murder, I suggest also reading A Family Cursed: The Kissell Dynasty, a Gilded Fortune, and Two Brutal Murders by Kevin McMurray. "

    " Quite the gripping story! This true crime book really held my interest. The Kissel family moved to Hong Kong because of Dad's new job and Mom just couldn't handle the change - nor the fact that she had to leave her lover at home in his trailer in Vermont. The way Nancy Kissel decides to take care of her depression is pretty insane. As is the rest of the Kissel family. I read this book so fast and was completely enthralled with the story. A must-read for any fan of true crime, or the Oxygen show Snapped! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Maureen Harris | 2/9/2014

    " I love all true crime books. My only complaint about this book is that it seemed so one sided. I wonder if nancy Kissel had any real motive, or was she really that awful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Erin | 2/6/2014

    " Good beach read - not a masterpiece by any means but compelling story/pageturner "
