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.

We are told the story of Dr. Debora Green who was a women of great intelligence but as her career started spiralling down hill, and her marriage began to fall apart. We learn she started to lose herself and dispite her husband's efforts of reaching out trying to get her some help when warning signs started to make their precence known he did so unsuccefully. It's hard to say if this story would end the same way that it does had others stepped up and said something instead of doing nothing when they recognized the warning signs of trouble.
