    1. This BITCH was crazy!Very good true story of the days during this FEMALE serial killer. Very engrossing and full of interesting details. Excellent true crime book.


    2. Interesting but long-winded account of a fiendish serial murderer preying on her boardinghouse tenants in 1980s Sacramento.


    3. Interesting story of a little old lady who helped the down and out elderly alcoholics, older man and women who needed a place to live. She cooked, clean and made sure they took their medication on a regular bases. Some she helped by giving them to much medication and once they were died, buried them in her beautiful garden. She then continued to collect their ss, disability checks and so forth for several months after they were deceased. I really never figured out how she selected the ones in he [...]


    4. This was one incredible story about a little old lady, who reminded most of a grandmotherly figure, who had a dark side, literally, for she was convicted of killing three people out of nine. This case, like so many other true crimes I've read, begs the question, what exactly do juries actually listen to in a courtroom?I cannot for the life of me figure out after having read, in great detail, the courtroom drama that unfolded, how the jurors felt Dorothea Puente wasn't guilty of murdering all nin [...]


    5. Netherlands on Sunday, April 22, 2007 I wrote:Reading this book since a few days. nearly finished. Carla Norton is a very good writer.I loved her other book Perfect Victim.This book like that is written very well.I must admit I became a bit bored because so much of the book was about the trial. The first part of the book is great though! Nearly finished reading the book. Just a few chapters to goa finished it a few hours later. It was oke.



    6. I didn't realize this was a true crime book when I first started reading. I was impressed with the way the author was able to take all the facts from this case and turn it into an interesting read. There might have been an overload at the end with the trial but it was a true representation of how that trial was presented with months of testimony, witnesses, and experts. Fact can be stranger than fiction as this book very clearly shows.


    7. INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVEINTERESTING AND INFORMATIVEI chose this rating because it was a good book and the author did a good job of relating the story of a very troubled woman and the sad end for her victims.


    8. Good except too much of the courtroom. Based on the book, I'm afraid I would have had a shadow of a doubt about her killing any that were found in the yard.


    9. Such a horrific topic, yet so beautifully written. Carla has a wonderful grasp of language and really brings the reader into the story. I couldn't put the book down.


    10. This book blew my mind!!! You just never know with people, even if they are sweet older people. writing and kept a fast pace while reading. Could not put down!



    11. the story of a little old lady that killed the people whom boarded at her home for their money and buried them in her garden.


    12. Found this book really interesting but the court case was too drawn out and I lost interest and flipped to the verdict.



    13. This was a very good book. There was a lot of information and details to keep track of and was therefore not a fast read. Highly recommend, especially for anyone who likes true crime novels.



    14. Chillilng account of a serial killer -- a not so young woman. WAY too much about the trial -- the book just went on and on and on. Fair.
