Publisher's Summary

Sheila Davalloo was young, attractive, and successful. When she started a new job at a cutting-edge research lab in Stamford, Connecticut, she met the man of her dreams. Nelson Sessler had no idea how violently Sheila would react when he began seeing a co-worker, Anna Lisa Raymundo. Sheila eliminated her rival in a bloody knife attack - and then turned her rage on another victim she saw as an obstacle to her passions. M. Williams Phelps recounts the riveting story of a white-collar love triangle gone horribly wrong…and the terrifying infatuation that drove one woman to kill.

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

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 !

crazy story

such a crazy story... if it was fiction it would have been too unrealistic... Shelia is a diabolical character. when I first started the book I thought I could see how the whole story was going to play out... however there was some jaw dropping plot twists weaved in...great book!

Doesn't fit...

...to my desire for a story! Too much time spent on description and too little on dialogue. I wish I hadn't spent the money.

Torture

This book just dragged on and on. The writer was so repetitive. It was literally torture to finish this book. Extremely boring. How did this get published?! I haven't the slightest idea. UGH!!! Can I get a refund!!

True Female Psychopath

A well written story giving the reader a true to life experience of a female psychopath. Anyone who has ever dealt with such a person will appreciate the authentic portrayal. If you've never experienced a female psychopath, this book brings you as close as possible to a real life encounter.
