They called Mary Lee Orsini Little Rock's Lady Macbeth. Her beauty and cunning proved fatal for her husband (shoy dead in his bed) and nearly as destructive to almost everyone else who crossed her path: the defense lawyer whose wife she was convicted of murdeing, the prosecuter whose career she destroyed, the sheriff she manipulated to the wrong side of the law, and the reporters she twisted around her poisonous little finger.
Here's the whole deadly web-of lies, murder, and sexual blackmail-that ensnared the media, men of power, and finally, the entire state of Arkansas in its greatest criminal drama of this century.

434 pp's, have to keep up with this one, lot of stories from Mary Lee Orsini from Little Rock. Called Lady Macbeth, first her husband is shot in his locked bedroom, she is accused of killing her defense lawyers wife, she ruins the prosecutors career, the sheriff will do anything to protect her, others go to life in prison and reporters are twisted around her little finger...judges come and go and there is blackmail...true crime, couple murders, lot of lawyering, courtroom and behind the scenes courtroom strategies, plus politics...enough to keep you busy putting it all together...liked it
