"The worst crime a mother can commit...." This book is the story of a woman who carried her dead babies bodies with her from state to state. Crime/drama. Good read.

Unbelievable story of a woman who seems to always be pregnant. Three of the four dead babies are found in boxes in a storage bin. She has around 8 or so live children.

In May 2003, an Arizona man who'd bought dozens of sealed boxes at a self-storage facility's auction of unclaimed property made a horrifying discovery: the bodies of three plastic-wrapped infants, one of which had become mummified over the years. Police traced them to Dianne Odell, 50, a mother of eight children,

The author's style is a bit confusing. It goes back and forth between what the suspect told police when she was arrested and what she is telling the author during interviews. This style can be good, but this author simply makes it confusing by not clearly identifying which chapter reflects original interviews with the police and which is a result of the author's interview with her.

This was a very interesting book. Very hard to put down. How this woman could have went so long without being caught is unbelievable. Anyone who enjoys true crime, this is it at its best.

In May 2003, an Arizona man who'd bought dozens of sealed boxes at a self-storage facility's auction of unclaimed property made a horrifying discovery; the bodies of three plastic-wrapped infants, one of which had become mummified over the years. Police trace them to Dianne Odell, 50, a mother of eight children, who admitted the babies were hers but claimed that they died of natural causes. She'd kept the bodies for over twenty years before abandoning them.
In 1989, the police had found the remains of a long-dead infant in a suitcase in the trunk of a car Odell had abandoned. The statute of limitations on manslaughter had saved her then from prosecution. She maintained that the fetus was the product of a rape by her father, and after he beat her, was stillborn.
Would O'Dell's stories sway the jury and buy her the mercy her babies were never granted? Or would she be forced to face the consequences of bringing innocent lives into the world--only to end them in cold blood.
