Publisher's Summary

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.

Gets your attention and keeps it throughout.

What did you love best about Lethal Intent?

It was so complete with excellent character description.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really did not have a favorite character, in fact in a true crime book, I don't believe the question even pertains.

Have you listened to any of Cassandra Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

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!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think I actually felt sorry for Lee( Aileen) when Tyria set her up and got her to confess to the authorities.

Any additional comments?

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.

Not what I was hoping for

I was really looking for something more in the line of documentary and got what reads like a fiction novel. Part of it is the performance I think. Don't get me wrong, Cassandra Campbell performs the reading just fine but doesn't have the gravitas in her voice for this to sound like a gritty true crime novel. Not sure I can adequately explain how this comes off more as a fictional tale than the true crime it is but the way it's written just comes off that way. It's still a decent read just not what I was looking for.

Awful awful writing

Truley terrible writing. Voice over performance is fine, but far too difficult to listen to
