Old Cleave should have known better than to use a whip. But no man ever knew what Beth would do. Her father suspected that she enjoyed killing. Her husband learned the truth too late. And I saw it happen. Saw her and wanted her, and understood least of all. First published in 1951, the Lady Kills is spread out across years, with a newspaperman, a gambler, a young boy, the woman they all loved, and the special way she treats her lovers. Special, and deadly.

Pretty good story about an evil, manipulative woman. At first, you have a hard time seeing how Fischer is going to carry this off at book length, but he succeeds. Marred only by Fischer's habit of making his male protagonist act really really really stupid a couple of times. I won't give it away, but you will cringe when she calls him on the phone and asks her to meet him at the cabin.
