The book is about a mother who is suspected of "suffering" from Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. Tanya Reid, a nurse, was charged with murdering her infant daughter Morgan and authorities were afraid her son Michael would be next. 8 pages of photos.
I read true crime books for the attorney & courtroom action. I rated this book an 7 for entertainment value & a 8 for attorney & courtroom action.
As long as Tanya was happy, everyone was safe. Behind the facade, Tanya was a very insecure person who needed to be the center of someone's attention. All the time. If not her husband or her family it would be someone in the medical profession. And she made sure that happened.
so well written i am requesting another of his books.
This is my first Gregg Olsen book, but definitely not my last. Well-written true crime account of a mother who has Manchausen Syndrome by Proxy, something I had not heard too much about. She was a bored homemaker who used her children to get attention from those around her by making them sick by deceptive means.
Couldnt put this book down and finished it in two days.
Great book, very fast read. Somewhat disturbing at parts, but very well written.
I enjoyed this book from the first page to the last. Very well written, not drawn out or filled with a lot of useless history.
The true story of a woman who craved attention to the point where she'd kill her own children to get it. A shocking, hard-to-beieve tale, but true!
Unbeliebable that a Mother could do this to her children!
Well written, Gregg Olson is one of the bet true crime authors. 4 stars
