True story of a sociopathic woman who becomes a doctor, but her horrible personality problems leads her to set several houses on fire, poison her husband and kill 2 of her 3 children all to get her own way. Fascinating, yet very sad story.

Very chilling account of this woman's desperation to keep her husband.

Reads like a novel rather than a biography.

Bitter Harvest probes the case of Debra Green, a doctor and a loving mother who seemed to epitomize the dreams of the American heartland. A small town girl with a genius IQ, she achieved an enviable life; her own medical practice, a handsome physician husband, three perfect children, and an opulent home in an exclusive Kansas City suburb. But when a raging fire destroyed that home and took two lives, the trail of clues led investigators to a stunning conclusion. Piece by piece, Ann Rule digs beneath this placid Midwestern facade to unveil a disturbing portrait of strangely troubled marriages, infidelity, desperation, suicide, and escalating acts of revenge that forever changed dozens of lives.

I liked Ann Rule's books a lot better when she was still relatively new to the genre. I liked this book but I don't like her giving so much personal analyzation and opinions. Plus her bias' are very obvious.
