Editorial Review

At first glance, it looks like an ideal beach read -- a collection of true crime stories featuring dangerous dames up to dastardly deeds -- and all for less than 10 bucks.
But Lethal Ladies: Crimes of Passion, Tales Of Deceit And Treachery! by Cheryl MacDonald is more likely to make you shake your head and want to stop bullying.
