As a child, she was abandoned, abused and raped. By her teens, she was deep into a lifestyle of hitchhiking, petty crime, and the sex trade. In her twisted mind, uncontrollable bouts of violence were pure survival skills.
In 1986 she began a lesbian relationship with Tyria Moore. Three years later, tired of turning tricks, she fired four bullets into one of her clients--then robbed him. She claimed she killed six more victims before authorities finally locked her behind bars.
Award-winning journalist Sue Russell updates her harrowing and definitive real-life thriller with new details of the most famous female serial killer's decade on death row, her execution in 2002--and the lasting impact of her dark deeds. The case that inspired the Academy Award-winning movie Monster.

It was so complete with excellent character description.
I really did not have a favorite character, in fact in a true crime book, I don't believe the question even pertains.
I had never listened to any other performances by Cassandra Campbell, but after hearing this one, I will be looking for more from her. She was great! Making every character come alive!
I think I actually felt sorry for Lee( Aileen) when Tyria set her up and got her to confess to the authorities.
This book changed my mind about how I felt about all the main people involved in this case. It was loaded with information I had never heard before, making it one of the most interesting books I have ever listened to or read.
Hard to stay interested
Good history on the actual case
Narration was fine
Good book, fascinating story of a female serial killer. Story did tend to drag out at times and cause me to lose interest.
