    I Also Recommend:

    I am a native New Orleanian from the Gentilly area.

    The author of this book is a good friend of mine but that is not the only reason I read this book. My husband is a former NOPD police officer and this vicious act of violence happened while he was at work. It just really gets to me on how a fellow police officer could do this to another police officer, let alone their own partner! To get the full picture you have to read this book. Once you start, you will not want to put it down. You really get into,¿ What is going to happen next?¿ As I was reading this book, the images from that fatal night kept reoccurring in my head, from the news footage to my husband telling me what happened. Both my husband and I attended the funeral of Officer Robbie Williams, and to see his widower and children was heartbreaking. I highly recommend this book for the die-hard real crime story readers and those who lived in the New Orleans area at the time this crime happened. You will not regret it...

    NOPD

    I lived through this during the very bad years of NOPD gangster tactics. The most telling aspect of this book was a sentence buried in the narrative. It stated that Frank was the "first" cop killer in New Orleans history to make it to the booking desk. That says volumes about NOPD and the troubles it still faces. The detail was exacting about her crimes, but the larger problems with the systemic corruption of the NOPD were largely ignored.

    Nook book

    Jac2848- i did not like this book. I thought the author skipped alot of detail. He points out alot of inconsistancies in the accuseds confessions, but never explains if officers confront or not.

    OK read

    This book was so so. I would recommend to someone if they just didn't have anything else to read.

    Good Read

    Good Book. Shows how a system used to weed out the bad apples is still flawed.

    Great book for locals...

    I was extremely excited when I stumbled across this book. I am from the area and was 20 years old when this incident occurred. Only knowing what I knew from watching newscasts, I was drawn to make this purchase. The book is very well written (minus some typos) and really puts into perspective how corrupt the NOPD was at the time and how devious this person really was. I now work in law enforcement and have my entire division wanting to read this book. I would recommend to anyone!

    Shocking

    Gripping account of a psychopath who managed to become a police officer, despite the warnings of police psychiatrist not to hire her. A page turner.
