    Story
    "Avoid this narrator"

    The story is complelling in its picture of a sociopathic opportunist who manipulates everyone in her path, including her children. The narration, however, is awful: the narrator chants rather than reads, and portrays the main character (who is in her mid-late thirties) with the accent and intonation of a demented valley girl. Very grating, and spoils what would have otherwise been a very good book

    Story
    "This is a good one"

    Wow the things people do just amaze me sometimes. This is a nicely written work of Mr. Phelps. The narrator does a good job except one of his voices bothered me a bit, but that can be over looked.

    If you like this one and haven't read his Perfect Poison - please do so. You'll enjoy that bizarre story as much as this one if not more.

    "Not bad"
    Any additional comments?

    I actually live nearby where Shiela and her husband lived. The author had some minor location errors but the story was easy to follow. The only issue was if you had no idea who the killer was when you started the book, this was given to you by the author very early on. This book I believe is probably purchased mostly by the locals in the various communities or people that were directly involved in the case. Guys (and girls) watch out who you become involved with !

    "GREAT TRUE CRIME ACCOUNT"

    Really good crime writers are harder to find these days. Not many are as thorough in their research as old school writers like Ann Rule or Gregg Olsen. This is the rare exception, one of only 2 great true crime books that I've read this year (I average a book per day). The murderer here is a compelling character alone, yet Phelps weaves a fabulous tapestry into her crimes, in an era when we are almost immune to violence. The narrator takes a bit getting used to - his tone is a bit too cavałier for such a heinous murder as the one depicted here. It took a lot for me to stick with this book until I just got used to the narrator's reading style. Good stuff - well worth the price of admission!

    Story
    "Slow, Dull, repeats too much"

    I like true crimes, though most the time you already know the outcome, they still chill your soul when written and told with talent. Not that this author isn't talented, just lacks the connection. Spoiled by Anne Rule I guess.
