This book tells the story of what can happen when family arguments go too far. This is an amazingly powerful, tragic story, and a must-read for anyone who is a fan of the true crime genre.
If this had not been a true story it would have been hard to believe ...... sticks in your mind long after finishing the book.
Excellent read for fans of true crime books.
great reading you will not be able to put down the book....
The first bodies found were those of a feisty millionaire widow and her beautiful daughter in their posh Louisville, KY, home. Months later, another wealthy widow and her prominent son and daughter-in-law were found savagely slain in Winston-Salem, NC. Mystified police first suspected a professional in the bizarre gangland-style killings that shattered the quiet tranquility of two well-to-do southern communities. But soon a suspicion grew that turned their focus to family. The Sharps. The Newsoms. The Lynches. The only link between the three families was a beautiful and aristocratic young mother names Susie Sharp Newsom Lynch. Could this former child "princess" and fraternity sweetheart have committed such barbarous crimes? And what about her gun-loving first cousin and lover, Fritz Klenner, sone of a nationally renowned doctor?
Riveting true crime story. One of the best I've read!
A true story of Southern family pride, madness and multiple murder.
True crime story of murder, madness, and obsession in the mid-80s, as a child-custody battle escalates into mayhem and ends in tragedy.
Bledsoe loses points for bloating the book with entirely too much backstory about not only the protagonists (and their parents and grandparents and great-grandparents), but gets some back for carrying on after where many true-crime tales would have ended, discussing the impact of the crimes and their aftermath, not only on the families of the victims but on the law enforcement officers involved
If you like true crime, you don't want to miss this one. The author does a great job researching this story, and making it read like a novel. I really like the way he writes.
