Book Review of Widow's Web (The Scandalous Story of Sex and Murder That Rocked Arkansas from Top to Bottom)

reviewed on + 715 more book reviews

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
