Hi Nikki,

 Have you ever heard of Jane and Jean Hopkins?  Twins who killed (or tried to) their own children?

If so, is there a book on these women?

Thanks Christa

I can't believe The Queen of True Crime ( me :) ) has not heard of this pair.. let me know if you find a book on them. 

I've been reading some good true crime lately..I finished one on the Susan Polk case. ( Mind Games)  What a head case she is.  We lived about 10 min from where she lives..but we were not in Ca when she murdered her hubby.  Her kids must be really screwed up. I have the new hardback on reserve at the library about the case too. 

I also hadn't heard of Beyond Cruel's Mike BeBardeleben either.  I don't know how I missed these crimes when they happened.  Serial killer-counterfeiter..now thats some combination

Christa..I do have a book about them.  It's called Evil Twins.  I haven't read it yet but it is about several evil twins...John Glatt is the author...I'll get to reading it..looks like a quick read..a bunch of short stories about bad twins..
