Overview

Everything She Wanted…

Rebecca Salcedo had an easy smile, a sexy body, and strong appetites—she wanted the world. Bruce Cleland, she decided, would buy it for her. The shy engineer quickly fell victim to her charms, getting her whatever she wanted. A new car. A boat. A house. But he wasn't Rebecca's only admirer…

She Got…

Even after Rebecca manipulated Bruce into marrying her, hoping to divorce him and take him for everything he had, she occupied herself with a series of lovers. Male strippers, women… they all spent time in Rebecca's bed. But when she learned that a divorce would only get her a few pennies, she knew she had to find another way to secure Bruce's fortune.

Even Murder…

Enlisting two family members as killers-for-hire, Rebecca set in motion her solution to the problem. While she watched, the first bullet hit Bruce in the face. Three more would follow. But while Rebecca kept the blood off her hands, she could not conceal evidence that led straight to her, culminating in a trial that would shock a community.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Prolific true crime author Lasseter and retired L.A. County prosecutor Bowers (You'll Never Find My Body) team up again to tell the sordid tale of an innocent man and the woman who plotted his murder. In December 1995, at a swap meet near Pasadena, Calif., successful, single 40-something Bruce Cleland meets beautiful Rebecca Salcedo, and her smile changes his life forever. Rebecca insists he support her lavishly, orchestrates a wedding, then demands a divorce, hoping to take Bruce's wealth. When Bruce refuses to pay spousal support, promiscuous, scheming Rebecca arranges for her husband's death. Lasseter and Bowers provide readers with a highly detailed depiction of events leading up to and following the gruesome murder of Bruce Cleland. True crime aficionados will savor this riveting read.

    Well written--good book!

    Don Lasseter and Ronald Bowers really put this together well. It won't disappoint you! This story is soooo incredibly sad, what a cunning woman! Bruce was a hard working guy; loved his parents and his sister, and here comes not only trouble, but trouble of the WORST possible kind-- I wish this man had a few more street smarts. Great book, well written, good story--worthwhile purchase for sure!
