Publisher's Summary

When the body of 45-year-old Glen Harrelson was found in his Denver home, police tried to contact his wife, but soon they made a startling realization. She had played the part of grieving widow once before: Her previous husband also had died a mysterious accidental death...

In a true story as shocking as any fiction, Bitch on Wheels is the amazing account of Sharon Lynn Nelson, a wild, beautiful preacher's wife who couldn't get enough-enough sex, enough money, or enough of her rugged "Mountain Man" lover, Gary Adams. Nelson was so consumed by greed that she convinced Adams to killed two of her three husbands in order to cash in on their insurance policies.

Here is a compelling portrait of a woman driven by the darkest forces to mate, then kill - an American black widow who ultimately got snared in her own twisted web...

    Story
    "Very Entertaining"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes,because this book had me unexpectedly laughing at the main character.Her behavior made her come off as almost cartoon-like & the narrator's deep,dead-pan voice made her silly ways sound even funnier.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The dental office secretary,because she saw thru the main character's b.s. & didn't like her from the minute she met her.I actually felt for her when she wished she could have slapped the woman back into reality.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when the daughter of one of the boyfriends was surprised while away at college when this woman insinuated herself between father & daughter just to get control of his money for herself.That had to be humiliating,having to drop out of college because of how this horrible woman ruined her reputation at school.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book.

    Story
    "Uninteresting repetition of author's personal bias"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Analysis of the crime. The author used his work to iterate personal beliefs in the moral weaknesses of women


    What was most disappointing about Gregg Olsen’s story?

    Poorly written; author doesn't seem to recognize his opinions are not mainstream.


    How could the performance have been better?

    You can't improve the performance of fundamentally flawed beliefs.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Title is a hint of what's to come

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Maybe the narrator.


    What other book might you compare Bitch on Wheels to and why?

    Just about any Ann Rule book on manipulative woman.


    Did Kevin Pierce do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The main character seemed to be the smartest as she preyed on the stupid.


    Could you see Bitch on Wheels being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Sure, better suited for a forensic files episode than a movie.

    "GREAT STORY BUT BEWARE........."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bitch on Wheels to be better than the print version?

    I think they are about the same. I'm not in the habit of buying audio AND print versions of the same book. I only listened to about 45 minutes when I realized that I already own the hard copy version of this book under the title "Black Widow".


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kevin Pierce?

    Someone like Lorna Raver. Pierce sounds like the kind of "Aw, shucks!" narrator who is better matched with dusty Westerns like "Lonesome Dove". To be fair, I stopped listening after I noticed that I own a print copy of the book which I read about 2001.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did so when I read the book more than a decade ago. Gregg Olsen was one of my two favorite true crime authors before the advent of audiobooks (the other was Ann Rule).


    Any additional comments?

    Audible should add a disclaimer on books what have been published under other titles or books released by more than one publisher using different narrators.
