It seems that Sharon Fuller Nelson Harrelson lives her life as the heroine of an ongoing series of "bodice ripper" novels. Sharon would be an unlikely fictional character. The way she captivates and manipulates a number of married men is unbelievable. They seem to lose all sense of family responsibility and even decency as they marry this sexy woman who blissfully continues affair after affair. The one man she can't marry is just as captivated by her as the others, but can't seem to totally dump his wife. He is, however, willing to kill for her to keep her as his lover.

Sharon Nelson couldn't get enough sex,money or men. She convinced her lover Gary Adams to kill two of her three husbands in order to get cash in on their insurance policies.She had countless affairs,abortions and not an ounce of gult. She was the black widow that ruined countless lives beyond repair including her four children. An unbelievable story of a woman able to lie, cheat,steal,and kill with no remorse.

I could barely keep up with the sexual exploits of this woman! Great read, a page-turner, as unlikeable as Sharon is, you are dying to know what she had the gall to do next.

Horrific true-crime story about a narcissistic sociopath who had 2 husbands killed before she was stopped. The book was a quick read, but jumped around a lot

THis is the second book I've read by Greg Olsen and it was very well written. He presents the story from several perspectives and even attempts to make the "black widow" sympathetic -- to some degree :) I got a kick out of his subtle barbs about her behavior and attitudes. It was very well researched and all the people in the story seemed real to me. Another great job by Gregg Oleson. If you haven't read Starvation Heights, you should take a look.
