Overview

Lethal Beauty


Kimberly Renee Poole, 21, led a double life. The Winston-Salem, North Carolina area housewife and mother was also a topless dancer at a strip club. She craved jewelry, designer clothing, and adulterous affairs with both men and women. Brent Poole, her hopelessly devoted spouse, could deny her nothing. But that wasn't enough for Renee. She wanted his money and his life.


Infernal Triangle


Murder moved from fantasy to reality after Renee Poole began an affair with John Boyd Frazier, a patron at the club where she worked. On the night of June 9, 1998, on the pretext of celebrating their third wedding anniversary, Poole lured her husband to an oceanfront hotel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. While their young daughter slept in the hotel room, Renee made love to Brent on the deserted beach--then delivered him to Frazier, who shot him dead.


American Nightmare


From the start, police knew Renee's story didn't add up, and the investigation that followed exposed the dark details of how Brent Poole's marriage to his dream woman ended in cold blood. Author Dale Hudson's gripping account of this high-profile case of greed, lust and murder includes extensive interviews with Renee Poole herself, whose dance of death landed her in prison for life.

    This is not Just The Facts, Joe Friday

    Unlike a previous reviewer, I thought Dance of Death was a great read because it was not written in 'Just the facts, Joe Friday, style.' So many other true crime books are written in this fashion without any drama or creativity and read like a boring newspaper article. Dance of Death is a page turner, and the author is an excellent writer who keeps the reader's attention in every chapter. For those who like reading just the boring facts, I would not recommend this book. But for those who enjoy being held spellbound and entertained from page one to the end, I would recommend it.

    Didn't like this at all

    I have over a hundred true crime titles at home and this was one of the hardest to get into. The author adds so much dramatic license that it's difficult to believe that this is a work of non-fiction. Much of the nuance and atmosphere has to be made up since the author wasn't there during the murder or interrogations and I doubt the police would recount their experience with the killer like this! Examples like 'So did he have anything to do with it?' the cop asked, leaning in so closely that she could almost feel his breath on her shaking lips. 'No,' she replied haughtily, shaking her long dark hair and tossing her eyes toward the sky. Anyway, this is not an example of the writing, just examples of the style of writing and the extra drama attached. I guess I like my crime books to the point without the theatrical attachments! I found it so distracting I'm having difficulty finishing. One 3-4 hour interrogation covered almost 100 pages of the book because of all the added fiction attached. This book is a cross between true crime and a weird harlequin novel. Just not my taste at all. Lose all the drama and stick with the facts. The writing is good - very good. But I don't think this style fits well into the true crime genre.

    Great True Crime

    I went to B&N looking for a good true crime book to read. After going through all the one's there, I found Dance of Death. I picked it up and read the back of it and thought I would like it. It wasn't until got home that I realized that Dale Hudson had written it. I've read 'An Hour To Kill' and loved it. So as soon as I found out that he wrote this book, I knew I would like it.......and did! It's funny that it was the most interesting book there and a litte funny that I never checked the author. If I would have, I wouldn't have to read the back. I would have known right away that it would be good. This book goes to show what people do out of greed. They care nothing for anyone but themselves. Here a little girl's life is turned upside down by her own mother. She lost them both in one night....because of poor judgement by her Mother, poor judgement and poor decisions. We all get caught in the end when lies cover lies. This is a very good book. If you are a true crime reader, Dale Hudson's books are a 'must'. He's good at what he writes. I'm waiting for the next! Keep writing Dale!
