Kiss of the She-Devil

When librarian Martha Gail Fulton was gunned down in a Michigan parking lot on a quiet evening, there were two obvious suspects—Gail’s husband George, a former military officer . . . and George’s mistress, the flashy businesswoman Donna Kay Trapani. Police were baffled to find that both had ironclad alibis. Yet evidence showed the shooter, a male, had an accomplice—a mystery woman. Now, M. William Phelps recounts the compelling real-life drama of a twisted love triangle that ended in bloody murder, and the riveting investigation that brought to light a master manipulator’s trail of deadly deceit.

I have always had an interest in real crime stories, as they intrigue me. We always wonder why would someone do this or that and the authors usually give us a pretty good idea of why some people commit murder. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, I love how the author really drew us into this murder and also how the victim may have been feeling at any given time in the book. We really care for our victim by the end of the book and we want to see the people or person responsible pay for what they have done. I was cheering the cops on by the end. The husband on the other  hand made me want to slam his head against a wall and ask where his brain is. I could tell from the first meeting with this mistress that there is something wrong with her. You know how some people give you the heebee-jeebies? Well that is what I got reading about this woman. 

I didn't really dislike anything about the book because everything was answered and everything was clearly gone into every little detail about. The fact that this is what really happened makes it all the better.  I would rate this book a four out of five and look forward to reading more by this author.
