Lengthy, Complicated, Delicate and Worth the Effort

It takes a bit of time to get used to the author's decision to split the chapaters up between past and present; between backstory and current investigation. If you can withstand that you will find what makes for interesting True Crime. A criminal, a consumate liar, a rationalist, a selfish egotist, and much more. Included in this story is a unique portrayal of someone who almost got a way with it - if not for herself. The greatest tension from the story comes from the investigators recognizing how important the prime suspect is to understanding just what happened in a case that is trully unique.

I thought this book jump around from person to person. I got the personal history of every person involved in this book. Where they grew up, where they went to college, how many kids they had. It was really hard to follow. I skipped through a lot of pages. I would have liked to see more personal storyies about the living children she had and what kind of mother she was to them.

    Sad. Much detail, you can tell there's been lots of research, and yes it
    did jump around some, but lots of books do. Still a very good story
    about the deaths of the babies, and the attemps to find out the
    means/cause. Makes you wonder if she wanted to get caught really, by
    letting the rent go unpaid. on the storage.
